Re: Why we're invisible to drivers

I just knew that mountimg spot would come in handy for "add ons".
Easy to reach and still keep a hand on the grip.
Maybe I'll redesign just the mount so a variety of things can be attached

Re: Why we're invisible to drivers

I thought of putting on on my bike... Untill I talked to a "motor man" who rode his bike on duty for several years. His honest opinion was that a modulator can be confused with the "go ahead" signal and that many cagers here have been using that flashing headlight to direct traffic (against the law ...

Re: CLUTCH MASTER CYLINDER

If the old master cylinder was rusted,you might inspect the slave cylinder too.
Keep us posted on the retrofit.
It would be nice to know what does and does not work.Ive got a 88 also.

Re: CLUTCH MASTER CYLINDER

My math shows 7/8" is 22mm. I do not know the 5/8 reference. Also the cruise cutoff switch.If your old switch assembly won't fit on the "new" one,you could connect the 2 wires together that attached to the cruise cutoff switch.Actulally a bypass. Would it be easier to rebuild you unit? The "new" one...

Re: oily sooty spark plug on righthand side cylinder

Run a compression comparison check..
Replace the plugs..idle it..lift another plug wire a half inch or so from the plug and listen to the Poppin...Is it the same as the fouled one..
Pull the fouled plug wire.Listen to the room drop.Is it the same if you pull another one?

Re: fork springs help.

I've done them both ways.Its just a bit harder to get the clip off to pull the lowers with them on the bike.I use a split PVC coupler to tap the new seal into place. Either way you absolutely must follow the reinstall steps and torque settings. The last consideration is replacing the oil unless the ...

I had my front wheel up as well.Stock springs extended about 4" above the tube.It was a balancing act to get it compressed..lining up on the thread marker and then carefully turn it a half rotation to catch the thread without cross threading it.Glad I only had to do it once. I also drilled and tappe...

Re: fork springs help.

My 88...I made a "tool" and marked the thread start point..I stood on the seat and really leaned into it (180lb) to compress the spring enough to be able to start the cap back on..Glad I had to do that just once.
There's instructions on "how to" make your own tool.

Just a side note. As I ran my 88 around for a few months.. One day it ran very bad... I managed to get it to work...I found the right side(all3) did not fire. Sheesh...been running great for months. I located the carb drain tube and cracked open the drain plug on the left carb...fuel flowed right ou...

Re: bike barely runs

You've done a good job.You have,by process of elimination, determined that the fuel system is the problem. Before pulling the carbs again do check the fuel supply. Plugged fuel filter(poor fuel flow to the carbs). Bypass the vacuum fuel cutoff valve and check fuel flow to the carbs(fuel pump). Just ...

But the carbs were rebuilt...How is it possible that the same side still won't run?? At wits end... Somebody missed something..
