I've had this project on my mind for quite some time (years, really). I got a little more motivation in these past few weeks as we've decided to sponsor a high school team that is building a turbo CB350 LSR bike. They needed some help with the electrics and I offered my support...

She's mostly there, but the kicker lever is gone along with a few badges/emblems. She's been in storage for seven years and possibly stored outside prior to that. The carbs and engine have a...
I have two for sale and retail on these is $80, but I'm letting them go at $50.
One of them has the terminals cut off (I can add aftermarket ones back on for $5) and the other has had the internals of the starter button removed so will only be useful on a bike that is being run with kickstart...

Just got this today.
Pretty good condition, but could use a bit of TLC. Looks good from 10 feet away, but close up you can see a few compromises have been made. I've already replaced the Chinese shocks with some Hagons and wired up a new R/R in a temporary configuration (running it straight...
I'd love a bit of help if anyone is able to come through.
I need a pic of the fuse box as it sits in a stock (or near-stock) set up. Also need measurements for clearances around the box, especially vertical.
Please help if you can!
Last week I was made aware of this (supposedly) running and titled YZF750R on Facebook Marketplace. Seller was asking $1000 for it and it was only a three hour drive away. After a bit of back and forth and several other potential buyers either backing out or not showing up, I was able to grab...

So I picked up this XS850 over the weekend. Titled and running for $500, but it won't charge.
The plan is to make it roadworthy and sell it and hopefully make a few bucks on the deal.
Current issues (in rough order of importance):
1.) Bike won't charge. Visual inspection shows the...

So we picked up this CB450 over the weekend. The plan is to refurbish the electrics and get her running properly. The previous owned complained about a possible fueling issue, so we'll take a look at that, too.
First step is to strip the old electrics and replace them all with new parts.
For this quick tutorial, we're going to focus on testing your regulator/rectifier as a source of potential trouble in your electrical system. This test should only be undertaken after testing your stator and ruling it out as a potential issue.
2.) Adjustable power...
I have my first sample of our new 6V regulator/rectifier arriving within the next week and I'm hoping to get some help in testing out it.
It's based on the same technology as our popular 12V model, but the plugs should be an exact match for the 6V CM185 and CM200. It should also be...
Grabbed this bad boy for $350 over the weekend. Missing just about everything (including paperwork) and someone tried to convert it to MX at some point. The engine sputtered on starter fluid, so hopefully everything is OK in that department.
Plans are to bring it back to a streetable state, so...
After months of samples, prototypes, and testing, we can finally announce that we've secured a new supplier for the hard-to-find 4mm triple terminals!
We received our first shipment this week and to celebrate, we are now offering our triple terminals in larger quantities (as well as larger...
Asking $700 and will be shipped free of charge in the USA. PM me for shipping costs elsewhere. It'll go up on eBay for $800 if I don't get any interest here.
Condition appears to be good, but I've never installed it, so I can't be 100% certain. Everything acts and looks like it should.
