    PODs vs Stacks

    Apart from the obvious (looks) there a practical and performance difference between using Pods and stacks. Any chance the same jets would still work if I were to change to stacks? Anyone know a source of stacks for a CB550 (Kehins)?

    Honda this a base for a neat little project? Now with pix

    Re: Honda this a base for a neat little project? Street legal is a bit limiting if I want to make it a bit edgy.

    Smell of gasoline when riding

    Will check the plugs. Had the bike tuned recently so expect / hope they are fine. Bike is running well in alll ranges since re jetting it. How does one make it run leaner if need be?

    Thanx for that list. Is there any reason one would choose one over the other?

    Smell of gasoline when riding

    Absolutely no visible leaks or overflows. I suspect the fact that there is no airbox and blow back devices fitted(because of the pods) is a source for the smell. My concern is that the bike is being over gassed but I am not sure if its an issue or not. Kind of worry it could be a fire risk...

    Smell of gasoline when riding

    Does anyone else smell gasoline when riding their bikes? I have pods on my CB550. I can smell gasoline often but especially when stopped at the lights or idling after running. No gas is leaking or overflowing. No smell with engine off. Idle speed is about 1200 rpm.

    New here.

    Beautiful job. I have cafe'd a '76/'77 CB550 SS and its amazing how different your approach to your project is to mine. Very unique and I bet you get some serious attention.

    Mounting a New Seat

    Its easy to add a sheet of 4mm aluminium in to the fabrication if you need additrional support in the f/g pan. Mine is more than strong enough because it has reinforcing ridges in the structure. Yours looks flat and may flex too much.

    Forum needs a new General Heading.

    I will give it some thought and do some "performance tests" and then post up in the LOUNGE I guess. (Doesnt quite feel the right place but whatever) General idea is that its absolutely not a competitive thing. Keep it safe. Just interested to discover for example how fast it might take...
