Well im just taking her a part now, throwing the fairings out or giving them away.

Once a part. Gonna send her to my friend and work on the basic.

Change all fluids
New coolant pipes and all that jazz,
Rebuild the engine and the clutch. Polish all of that.
New spring
Replace all hardware, replace all corrided parts. Polish rest of the bike.
All new wiring.
Get a led light on my dash(what ever its called) to show what gear im in.
Lowering links(need to lower a inch or two for safety reasons)
New grips.
Bar ends
New chain and spockets.
See what else after will need to be done.


After that i don't wanna say much, its gonna be an awesome surprise

But anzoding will be needed, to match the paint and a lot of pouder coating to match the body.

Other then that see what happens!!!

not yet. me and my dad have been brainstorming. i did get up and sit on the bike to get an idea of the seat modifications i need. my butt wants to slide off one side or the other so i need something wider...kinda like a tractor seat. we'll get it figured out when my dad gets more time. he does auto interiors so building the seat won't be a problem.

Was out for a ride yesterday and ran into two British bike collectors. That are fairly local to me. One was riding a '67 BSA 441 single. The other was on an '50's Ariel square four. Wanted it so bad.

So I ended up purchasing a honda xr650l after taking a 7 hour drive there and back... I think it will need a look over just to be certain that it is tip top because he had it choked for quite awhile to get it running. Granted it is an air cooled bike but still.

Most people don't know that skittish is the proper spelling for "jittery". Don't believe me... Look it up.

100% agree with this...usually its just the morons that I see acting stupid on sportbikes ie; wife beaters, shorts and flip flops and way too much speed....

My KZ is a BITCH to get running when it's cold, including much choke fiddling and cranking. I just grab some starting fluid and blast the filter pods and it works much better. All this is even after having gone thru the carbs and cleaning them out. Didn't help one bit.

Its because you used that c word too many times. If you used the F word and the I word it would work much better all the time.
