    Do I need to replace rings?

    I bought a 1980 SR250 on the cheap. I was told it needed a top end rebuild. It was running but rough. I have a set of gaskets and rings. Upon disassembly, I realized that the cylinder wall, piston, etc look to be in great shape. The valves are sealing well. I had not looked at the mileage...

    Want To Start Airbrushing ?s

    DocRot gave some great advice. I’m a professional painter and I’ve been airbrushing for a couple decades now. I’ve tried a lot of airbrushes and I’ve found that nothing beats the Iwata Eclipse for an all around work horse. I prefer the gravity feed. I have a few airbrushes that cost...

    Current Automotive matches to Honda paint colors

    I painted my bike with Milano red (code R81). It’s a very close match. R81 is a Honda color used in the 90’s.

    I know this is a late reply. I have an sr250. It’s been sitting for a long time in the elements. A couple years ago I rebuilt the carbs and tried to fire it up. It wasn’t getting spark. Coils looks cracked but I never got farther than that. I don’t have a title. I’d sell it for $100...

    Triple clamp crack

    I realize this is a late response. Anyway, I have a 1971, 1972, and 1973. I disassembled the front ends and assumed they were all interchangeable. Turns out they are not. I still don’t know which parts came off which bikes. I think if I remember correctly, the distance between the fork...

    Fresh paint job

    The clear is PPG catylized urethane. It's long lasting. I'll post pics in a few days when it's back on the road.

    Fresh paint job

    I just finished this paint job for my '71 CB350. I also rebuilt the motor, painted the frame, and refurbished many parts. I'm anxious to get it back together and ride.

    Question about Rustoleum Appliance paint for frames

    Re: Question about Rustoleum Appliance paint for frame This isn't really an answer to your question--just a comment. After spending all that time and effort I would want to know that the paint will hold up. Most noncatalyzed paint will not hold up to gasoline or solvents. The durability...

    Float height CB350

    I always set float height for CL/CB 350 with round floats at 22mm. I did find info stating that it is 19, 21, or 26 depending on engine number. #1000001-1045164......19mm #1045165-1065378......21mm #1065379 and later.......26mm What is "engine number"? VIN numbers? My VINs don't match any...

    Xs1100 shift lever does nothing

    I recently got my 1980 Xs1100 running for the first time in years. A few blocks from my house as i was going from 2nd gear to 3rd, it just popped into neutral. I pulled over and now the shift lever does nothing. It moves up or down but do not feel any gears. The motor runs fine. The clutch...

    bmw airhead unstable after highway spill

    My front tire on my 1974 BMW R90/6 blew at 75mph. At about 60mph I went down. The bike slid on its right side. Amazingly, i was banged and bruised and scraped, but ok (extremely lucky--especially considering i dont wear a helmet). The bike slid on the valve cover and nearly wore through...
