I got hold of an XR200 'Pro Link' swing arm (about 4" longer) plus CJ brake pedal for 'Blue Bike'MiniatureNinja said:CJ360 swingarm is slightly longer (by about an inch) than the CB, and I really liked the look of the CJ brake pedal.
I debated chopping and going 3 inches longer, I really want to retain the original appearance of the bike just make it low and mean. I suppose aluminum swingarm is nice and light, just looks out of place to mecrazypj said:I got hold of an XR200 'Pro Link' swing arm (about 4" longer) plus CJ brake pedal for 'Blue Bike'
Just need to get my arse in gear and get some work done on it again
Even with the flat part around the piston? Does that effect flow or combustion?irk miller said:Nope
I got my gasket kit in, and ordered a .040 copper head gasket, will have to see if I need to do something with base gasket to get the right clearance - copper base gasket worth it? seams like every time I click a thread or photo searching for info or vendors on this stuff I get a dead link or expired photo.crazypj said:Don't touch pistons or head, you set clearances with different thickness gaskets. CR comes up a bit due to size of overbore.
If you run 0.040" piston to head you can still use 87 Octane without problems Although I try to get 0.037"~0.038" and 2:1 - 87/93 when I can't get 91 octane. Bit nervous first time I tried it but couln't feel any difference even running a couple of tans 87
XR swing arm is silver painted steel, alloy would be nice but stock XR is direct fitand much easier to weld mounts for twin shock. I would have gotten an earlier twin shock one or XL but XR was easier to find
I seen it once, just a bit of MAP gas and a simple tweak..Viola, easy peasy.MiniatureNinja said:(anyone ever see a scrambler exhaust on right side of the bike? no? that's because it interferes with the kickstarter.... go figure)

The real trick is keeping clear to access the dipstick.
oh that looks great!
