    Transmission fluid or oil cb360 forks

    Dump that, go to your local motorcycle store and buy yourself some fork oil. It comes in different weights which in the short of it, relays to the stiffness of the forks. Transmission oil was considered an alternative because that's what was available back then. I have a cb650 that I run 20...

    I'd run a small capacitor on there to help with any voltage drop and smooth it out even more.

    Seeking knowledge on swaping compressor motors

    we swapped a single stage head with a triple stage head onto a 5hp contractor style compressor. The kind with two tanks. Fills up right quick, runs all of the power tools. Make sure you've got a good pressure release valve on it. We didn't change the pulleyratio so it was running at the same...

    casting a cafe seat?

    I'd be down for seeing the process but honestly, fiber glassing a seat is just plain easier to me. But dude, if you can cast a seat, start sand casting some custom engine covers and recover the cost of that seat. Just saying. Seriously, photograph the process and build.

    CB650 all turn signals flashing at once

    Your fronts signals are signal/running combo leds? You should have 3 wires if so. If you've got them connected into the running lights wiring on the harness then that could happen. If it's two wires on your signals, don't working about the runing lights. By running lights, I mean the front turn...

    The Most Versatile Tool

    At this stage of build, what will you be doing more of. Working on the mechanical side or the fabrication side. Spend you money on tools that will get used the most often, then when you can afford it, get those tools that you'll use the least. Wrenches and sockets you cannot have enough...
