Well I figured I should start a build thread in hopes that it will keep me motivated to finish in a timely manner.
Anyway, I wanted to build a bike that I could ride most anywhere: around town, long highway hauls, backroads, gravel and even some dirt. The only "logical" bike to me was another...

Building a very budget 2up tracker for the lady and I. Let me know if you have anything on the cheap.
I have a LED tail light that I purchased from DCC and when I hit the brakes (front or back), it lights up great. When I turn on the headlight/taillight, the light won't change when the brakes are pressed. I have about 10-11 volts when pressing the brake and no lights on and when I turn on the...
Having some idling issues with my 74 CB550. It has a 4-1 Kerker with no baffles and individual Uni foam pod filters. I upgraded the main jets from 100-110 and left the others normal. I believe the clip is on the second setting up from the the bottom on the needle jet ( haven't looked in there...
I just put new throttle cables on my 74 Cb550. When I have any pressure on them, there is a hang up. It doesn't look like any of the bends are tight or kinked. I checked in the controls and they don't seem to be binding there. Could there be some rubbing or housing or burrs in the barrels...

So, this is a complete noob question but I know there are many of us on the board that are new to motorcycles or at least to older bikes. Since we are rebuilding 30 yr old bikes, most of which have not ran in years, what is the best start-up procedure? Basically, what are the steps that one...

Ok...I feel like a complete noob. I have searched the interwebs and tried stuff myself. I am not sure if my pad is stuck or if there is something else holding it in. I removed the small pin on the stationary pad side but cant get the pad out.
How do I get the pad out?
I purchased new drive chain and am unsure on how much tension is needed with setting the rear wheel and mounting the chain. I have ride and have built bicycles but am not sure on a motorcycle.
Also, how do you make sure that the rear wheel is in line with the front wheel when you tension the...
