    Cb450/500t track bike

    16mm master on one AP caliper is way too big. Using the vintage brake ratio chart, the 12mm is a perfect size. I run the 12mm Brembo and a single AP caliper on my race bike and the brake feel is great. I wouldn't use anything else.

    Cb750f swingarm upgrade to cb400sf

    Primary concern is having wheels inline with each other along with sprocket alignment a close second. You could fab shock mounts to compensate for any offset in the swingarm once mounted.

    CNC machine or 3D printing help!

    If you have access to a lathe, you can make the 3 "cups" for each side, then hand cope the stock to mate up to it and have it welded. Probably cost under $100. No access to lathe, probably $300.

    Honda fork flip

    I ran my calipers on the rear a while back when I had stock dual discs. Its and easy enough thing to do, but how much difference it makes is probably immeasurable to the average rider. You would be far better off in the handling department to go bigger on forks and get a caliper that doesn't...

    saving a 1980 KZ750 twin

    Really excellent work all around. I kept an eye on your 1000 project but just found this. Im a really picky guy and each component is something I would use. Well done.

    Best tips on ensuring your carbs don't leak after a rebuild?

    Unless those are all Keihin factory parts, they are likely junk and will cause more issues than solve. Its pretty widely understood that there is no reason to replace brass unless broken, and to only do so with OEM parts. Gaskets may not make as much of a difference but often are made from...

    Farm boy’s Rattle-can Racer

    Comprehension is fine, fuck you very much. I am aware of the similarities and differences of the process, just wanted to point out that one was not the other and vice versa.

    Farm boy’s Rattle-can Racer

    Welding and soldering are not the same, no matter where you are from. Totally different processes.

    Doing Research For Tracker Build Using Kawi Ninja 650 (Probably)

    Grab a hub from a Honda CB, 70's era. They are 6 hole pattern that is shared with more modern rotors from Ducati and Yamaha. That would allow you to run dual disc up front, though for a tracker, go with a big single disc and a good 6 piston caliper. That will be plenty of stopping power...

    1998 Gsxr 750 build

    I committed to the Antigravity range of batteries for my total loss system on my race bike. When mine dies, I will look at EarthX as the over-discharge protection is actually far more important to me than overcharging, since I have an Optimate charger that monitors overcharging. They don't seem...

    Ducati engined café racer

    Odd assumption. Don't hope you're right, as that gets people killed. Dirt bikes are not made to hook up instantly like a street bike. Good sticky tires and you may put the arm above its limits. Dirt bike parts dont always translate to street for a number of reasons. Please do your homework and...

    Modern caliper on CB450

    Ive seen brackets that allow a 2 piston caliper (AP, Grimeca, etc) to be bolted onto the stock forks using one of the swinging bracket holes and one hole from the fender mounts by the axle.

    Hey Chuck is this guy in Cleveland? I just bought a Rickman single seat (the longer rarer version) from him and he had 2 white half fairings for sale. And his name is Anup! Excited to see progress on this one! You don't happen to have or know of a 38mm Rickman top tree for sale do you? I found...

    Rickman CR Refresh - Collection of Kit Parts

    Hoping to just get lucky, but the search continues for now. For whatever reason it took me over 2 years to find the Rickman Facebook group, but I have joined up and there is a wealth of knowledge there a mile deep. I have tons of pictures but never really had anyone I could ask questions to and...
