    CB500 Big Bore Question

    Hey all, I have access to a spare CB500 that needs rebuilt. It move freely, but has low compression and some missing parts. Since it already needs rebuilt, and needs new pistons, I'm thinking about going big-bore. My question is this... - Could I simply go up to a 550, or even 650 stock piston...

    1982 Virago 750 - NO START

    Background on the rust bucket here: I finally got this thing all wired up. Only 2 weeks away from the ride, so I'm a little further behind at this point than I'd like to be. But I guess that's all a part of the game. INPUT NEEDED Here's...

    Mikuni MKII / MK2 Parts (Yamaha XS)

    I have a rack of Mikuni MKII carbs from a late 70's XS750. I tried tuning them for my 850 but just couldn't get them to work. I think there is something wrong with the #1 carb, but the other 2 appear to be good. Will sell the rack for parts, or part out as needed if you want. I also have 4...

    7/8" Bobber Bars

    So I'm building this XV750 Rat Rod / Bobber thing, and I can't decided what kind of bars to run on it. First off - it's a budget build, so the cheaper the better. Read more about the project in the link in my signature. Esthetics are definitely secondary on this project, but since it's my first...

    ZX6R Right Hand Clipon w/ Master and Switches

    Purchased this for parts, so I'm selling what I don't need. The clip on may need some fresh paint, and the switch is in great condition. The red/pink lever is brand new, also comes with the silver one. Based on the tests I ran, I believe the master cylinder needs rebuilt. Asking $50 shipped.

    Brake Bleeding for Dummies

    Okay, so I've read the manual, and every article online, but for some reason I always have the hardest time getting it to work. There is no fluid in the lines at the moment, but no matter how many times I go through the process, the fluid just will not leave the reservoir. Master cylinder and...

    XS850 - Wiring...

    Okay, so I am simplifying the wiring harness on my XS850 and have only come across ONE wire that is baffling me. I've searched and searched and looked at multiple diagrams and I can't figure it out. These are three wires that go to the ignition switch. However coming out of the connector is...

    Bought this a year ago and have used it 2 or 3 times. It works fine but I have the chance to grab a different sync tool here locally, so I won't be using this any more. It comes with everything needed to sync 2 - 3 or 4 cylinders on most bikes. Looking for $45 shipped. I paid around $80 for it...
