Pretty simple, just post anything you did to/with your bike, whether its just a ride, install of a part or accessory and etc.

Some long overdue shit. Installed some underbody frame sliders and charcoal canister delete. Bought a y connector to clean up 2 hoses from gas tank to 1. The other hoses on the T connecter I temp plugged it with a bolt. They go to the throttlebodys and will all be trashed once I make it to the hardware store and get proper bolts

Fuel light came on as I was going through Riley and it barely made it to Keats. Thats like maybe 13 miles. I have gone as far as 24 miles on the fuel light before. I guess it's time to find out why my fuel mileage sucks so bad.

Btw, apparently Dunlop now has Sportmax Q3's out. I love my Q2's, and it's tire time for me. I think I'm going to try the Q3's.

I think the side config looks best. How much clearance would you have if you kept it in the middle?

6-Bolt2g
2013-08-21, 10:54 AM
Oddly enough I more clearance being in the center. With moving the left side pipe it is very close to the tire under compression. I would have to make the bend tighter to hug the motor if I go that route.

Started converting from 08 blue/white to 09 black. Just have the tank wings to purchase and an all black seat cover. May wrap the blue panels and keep the brand new black bodywork minty fresh.

I want one of these so bad!



I didn't do anything to my bike today but I did ride it go and pay the payment on it. just 5 more payments to go.

Q3s are cool, I would also consider the new Michelin pilot power 3s, I have run those on my R6 (even raced on them with CCS at Heartland in May) and on other bikes at MAM and Hastings, I would HIGHLY recommend them...

Its a 71 CB350. I bought it last Summer as a barn find and went through it mechanically, new pipes (they were rusted out), new shoes,tubes and tires. Now I ride it more than my Suzuki. I did have plans to cut it up and make a cafe or rat bike out of it, but I get so many remarks about it the way it is. It just looks old and nasty, but it runs great.

I have been lurking here for a while and it seems like you have been working on yours forever.

Nice. I'm always looking for a nice barn find. I don't blame ya, I would possibly do the same....and eventually build it up.

Yes......taking forever. Main thing is time. Not a lot of spare time to spend in the garage. Plus I'd rather take the time and be happy with the outcome. I'm looking for another full blown build for this winter.

This may be the next build. Saw it at 50 Hwy Cycle.

79' CB650 OHC

Plans would be GSXR or similar fork swap, swinger swap, minimal style

Smolies

Is there really that much weight savings for the rear brake?Not really, but it also keeps from your rear brake dragging against the rotor and slowing you down that way. There isnt much weight savings on anything from what iv found on this bike. But, when you do 5-6 things that weigh 5lbs each every little thing adds up fast.

John, just get an LiFE racing battery, and keep the rear brake.

Same exact weight savings, and you won't have to fiddle with removing all that stuff all the time.

Shorai's are a rip off.

The Alien Motions, or any other similar brand give you a lot more battery for your money. The chargers are only about $35 for the LiFE safe ones too.

I use a Cardo Scala bluetooth in my Bell Star (which is definitely a loud ass bell helmet). I like it, you can plug your music into it too, answer phone calls, and send (but not receive) text messages via text-to-voice. I can hear phone calls pretty well on the highway, but I usually have to tell the person to speak up a bit if they are talking quiet. Around town, the sound quality is great on phone calls. The unit-to-unit via bluetooth, and when you plug your music in as well, has better sound quality than phone calls. They aren't cheap, but very handy.

Just finished taking off the reflectors on it, gaudy rear view mirrors, and stock levers. I installed ASV levers, finally got the fly screen and belly pan in the mail, and got those installed as well. I need to get the bike out of it's break in period, and put my Scorpion slip-on on it, and get some new handlebars, put my CRG bar end mirrors on it, and get a fender eliminator... Still have some work to do, but I am happy with it for now, until I want to spend more money on it :mrgreen:

No, I'll get a picture tomorrow. I didn't even know it was a "ramp" it's not fucking marked as one, it's not marked as anything. There's a parking spot that's marked and then a 2 foot part between stripe and a curb where a tree is, where I put my bike. The motorcycle spots are on the other side of the tree. There was an open spot for my bike, but I figured since they are super small spots and a couple big harleys were in there I wouldn't try to squeeze between them and put it off to the side.

What fucking kills me is, the fucking doofus kid wrote the ticket as opposed to just rolling my bike over into an open spot.

I'm too lazy to upload pictures. Text me your digits and I'll send you a picture.





But what will the picture be of?

I offered to trade it for a 98 camaro z28 with a grinding 3rd and 4th gear.

Offer me money for the GS550es.

I think whoever rides it will love it. I am torn between which I would rather have sell. The VZ800 or the GS. Its like choosing between losing the penis or the balls.

Got my bike back from the MidAmerica Powersports after they did a couple recalls. I went to check tire pressures and my rear valve stem cracked...took the rear wheel back to MidAmerica and they put a ghetto 90 degree stem on.

Like this.

I guess all is good. Rear wheel is back on and the bike is ready just in time for the rain.

I prefer my fags dry. I have a test in Wichita at 2pm on Friday and then ACLS training in Kansas City on Saturday and Sunday. Which means unfortunately I'll miss the mushy, moist, meat guzzling motorcycle thing.

Honestly, I like the 90 degree stems in the back. it can be a PITA to get a pressure gauge around the sprocket and brake sometimes with the straight ones. As long as it holds air, it'll be all good either way though.

True. The 90 degree is nice, it just doesn't feel very secure though. I was told they put them on Goldwings, so they must be nice...
