    '83 GPz750 Resto-Mod (pic heavy)

    Thanks for the comments! I always seem to move much slower than I want. It’s definitely a balancing act between working on other people’s projects to fund mine and getting the time to work on mine. I ordered up a fully custom rear shock from Daugherty Motorsports. I had the Works shock rebuilt...

    '83 GPz750 Resto-Mod (pic heavy)

    Set about finalizing the Ducati front wheel swap. Turned some 5mm mock-up caliper spacers since I’m using 320mm rotors from the Duc and not 310mm stock rotors. Ended up using a 5mm spacer to move the rotors out and 3mm shim between the fork and caliper bracket to move the calipers in. Rotors are...

    I originally wanted a Stack tachometer with built-in digital speedometer function but after waiting several weeks with no delivery date available, I cancelled my order and went a slightly different direction. I bought a single function Stack tach but added on a Koso speedo unit. That meant...

    '83 GPz750 Resto-Mod (pic heavy)

    Thanks. I’ve been doing a LOT of side jobs so I was able to pay down some garage funding debts. I’ve started taking in less jobs and want to get back into my own projects. Later, Doug

    Bump it up! These are taking up room and I don’t want to pay eBay 12+% of the cost for fees. Later, Doug

    Question about a Works Shock.

    I reached out to Schmidty Racing Suspensions. $200-220 parts & labor to get a longer line installed. Daugherty offers a BD40 shock that appears to be fully adjustable for $775. I think I may go that route as he said the shock is customizable for my application. Later, Doug

    Question about a Works Shock.

    You would think. I’m very close to just selling the Works shock and take a loss and get something that’s not a hassle to deal with. Later, Doug

    Question about a Works Shock.

    I haven’t looked locally yet. I contacted Daugherty Suspension about it. The line is $40 but he says the shock needs completely taken apart to change it out which I think is hokey. He charges $150 for a rebuild but since I don’t need parts it would be $125 in labor. I don’t get his reasoning...

    1985 Cb700SC wiring dilemma

    Hey all, I’m working on a ‘85 700 Nighthawk that someone removed the ignition switch and twisted all the leads together with a residential wiring nut. :facepalm: Anyways, I have an ignition switch coming but it has 5 wires and the wiring diagram I found shows 5 wires. The problem is that I...

    Question about a Works Shock.

    So RT responded with a price of $300 for a new line and labor to refill and recharge the shock!! That’s more than the rebuild that Worx Shocks already performed. So far I have about $750 wrapped up in this shock including the purchase of the shock used. I guess I’ll cut my losses, sell the...

    '83 GPz750 Resto-Mod (pic heavy)

    I decided that some self-torture was in order so I set about working on the wiring again. My first attempt was modifying the original harness but I abandoned that. Now I’m trying to use a Zr7S harness since it uses a newer junction/fuse box arrangement and the bikes are loosely related. I still...

    Question about a Works Shock.

    I contacted Matt with mixed results. I sent him an e-mail and he promptly replied asking for more details and pics. I sent him pics the next day but got no response. Followed up a couple weeks after. No response. Followed up last night and he responds that he’s “off-site” and can’t help. He gave...

    '83 GPz750 Resto-Mod (pic heavy)

    Thank you. It’s hard to believe it’s been 8 years and it’s still not done. I keep changing my mind and parts. I guess this is why people make a thing called a “build plan”. Later, Doug

    '83 GPz750 Resto-Mod (pic heavy)

    I bought a lightweight titanium Ladybird muffler several months ago to replace the heavy D&D. The Ladybird had a few dents and dings but was nowhere near the price of a new one. I ended up shortening it 5.5”. I cleaned up the cut end and now the only telling sign I did anything are mis-matched...

    '83 GPz750 Resto-Mod (pic heavy)

    Since swapping to the hybrid rear-end mashup, the caliper bracket I made to fit the Brembo caliper with the stock VFR wheel no longer works. So I found just about the smallest caliper I could and set out to remake another bracket. Now the back of the caliper clears and the eccentric can...

    I forgot I made this thread but will try to keep it up to date as much as possible. I really need to read through the thread and figure out exactly what I’ve covered and where I left off. I got tired of moving it around and got some time freed up from working on other people’s bikes so time to...

    Question about a Works Shock.

    Long story short….I need a place that can provide a longer remote reservoir hose, refill the oil, and recharge a Works mono-shock for me (at a reasonable price). Please don’t recommend Worx Shocks. Their customer service is horrendous. Thanks. Later, Doug

    That spring is part of the seal. It’s on the backside of the seal’s inner lip. You need a new seal. Later, Doug
