    Suzuki GN125 | First build

    I used the original header, chopped it off just before the last bend and welded on a small piece of bigger-diameter tubing. The GN125 header is tiny (35mm from the top of my head) and most aftermarket exhausts take ~45mm, which can be reduced to ~38mm with spacers. Finally started work on this...

    ** PICS OF MEMBERS RIDES ** - Official Before & After Thread

    Sweet, although I was digging the before look as well. That gaudy 90's look is a guilty pleasure of mine, don't tell anyone I secretly want a Honda CN250. :P

    Suzuki GN125 | First build

    Thanks for the kind words Jeff, I've replied to your PM, a tad late but I hope it was of help! This time I'm going to start working on it for real. I've got new mirrors, bar controls, speedometer. I have stripped the entire wiring loom (again :-\ ) and want to do it properly this time around...

    Simplified Wiring Digrams

    After somewhat simplifying my Suzuki GN125's wiring I'm trying to make a second push to make it truly simple. I've got most of it figured out but have one question left: Why is the Ignition behind the killswitch? If I'm reading it right flicking the killswitch kills the power to the coils, that...

    71 Honda CB350: Enthusiast turned builder!

    Just starting and seeing what goes wrong along the way is the best way to learn, also makes sure there always is plenty of learning to be done.

    Photoshop color code?

    Most paints use the RAL system, if you have a RGB, CMYK, HEX, or whatever color code from photoshop you can use that to find the RAL color closest to it. There's a pretty limited amount of RAL colors so you usually won't find an exact match, but most of the time you'll be able to get pretty...

    Bulkiness is a big no for me, I'm already having trouble cramming everything into my head-light as is. I did some test crimps and also had to pre-bend the terminals but this die should fix that...

    Suzuki GN125 | First build

    Major thread dredge! The poor thing has been rusting in the backyard for the last couple months, time to get it on the road again before spring! I kinda forgot how shitty it was when I put it away so making a to-do list was confronting. Fix wiring for once and for all, I ordered new battery...

    For the final overhaul of my wiring I got myself a serious crimping tool: Could have done much worse for 20 bucks, gotta love ordering from China. Next up is deciding on the terminals, I currently have a bunch of these: But I'm contemplating getting these because they look so fancy...

    1981 XS650 Project Something or other (going cafe-ish)

    Re: 1981 XS650 Project Something or other I saw it was off but couldn't put my finger on it so I ran a quick simulation: Pretty obvious now, but I can't figure out how to fix it without redoing a huge part of the work.

    "Cafe Racer" such a loose term! Craigslist "Gem" of the week!

    It sure is pretty though... ;)
