Very nice. Hopefully once you get it running and hot, with the rings freed up a bit, the compression numbers will come up somewhat.
Good call. The Viton is the right material, Buna-N wouldn't last as long. Probably cheaper than OEM float bowl gaskets too.
Next time get the 90' Bridgeport aluminum valve stems. I've got the black ones on my bike and love 'em.
Note that they come in two sizes, for...
Hiya, the Greasemonkey and I were doing a bit of discussing behind the scenes as to how I approached this mod.
Don't want to steal TOO much of...
Updates anyone? Detail photos?
Yes, if you have the original 16/18 wheels then it's an '86 or '87.

Heh, already 4th in gOOgle's page listings.

Nice work. Are you planning to black out the rear footpeg hangers and the fork sliders too?
Good for you. I recently wrecked and reduced my left ankle to dust.
It's been 2 months now, no weight bearing for another month, then we begin...
Yes, you can buy the triangles from Thurn, but an cheaper way is to add washers to the upper shock mount.
You will have to remove your upper...
Oh, I see you're in Calgary. I'm from Whitecourt, 5 hours north of you.
Anyhow, The VF1000R motor isn't quite a "direct" fit into the "F"...
I've seen where guys will buy a spare used VTEC exhaust, chop the stock cans off and adapt a set of R-1 mufflers to it.
It's quite doable, and...
Get the brand-new RWB and take the wheels off, get them powdercoated white, done deal!
Very interesting ToeCutter. Nice work.
Now you need a highmount exhaust to show off the SSSA.
What I found with my '86 was that I had installed a set of dual Yosh slipons onto the stock headpipes and I had the dreaded flat spot.
That's the symbol for the Euro.
Right now, 1 Euro is worth $1.52 USD
Yes but no. It was the 2000 model year that got the LH peg weight.
Trade in for a CBR600RR?

Those are RC51 forks.
