Cutting the seats height down helps a little, but taking some of the sides out so the width is narrower helps the most. Currently you’re probably having to slide to one side to allow the leg to fall...

Since it has hydraulic valve adjusters which may have gone dry sitting, be advised it takes quite a bit of cranking to get them pressurized. The motor will sound like it has no compression. (Because...

At the base of the rubber lines is an air jet. So the rubber line could leak, but the jet would meter air in just the same. The other end on the plenum is connected to your air cutoff valve. Might...

When I got my 195/55/16 I measured it before mounting and thought, “ No way in hello.” It was definitely too wide, but after mounting it and airing it up, it fit easily. It was 1/2-3/4” narrower than...

Probably means something else, but “ Yes the engine has to come out to put the starter in. The starter is chain drive, the sprocket will fall when the starter is removed. “ isn’t true. Sprocket can’t...

I have a 195/55/16 on a 1500 rim/ final drive on a 1200 swingarm in a 1000 frame, however the frame has been bobbed. It would probably have issues hitting somewhere in stock form.

A good how-to somewhere here. It’s fairly easy. I did it to my 1200 swingarm. I’ll dig for the post.

Throwing this out there for thought. I know many are against car tires in the first place, and if you are, mosey on down to the next post. Has anyone thought about judicially removing a little of the...

Maybe this will help. As the engine speeds up, the centrifugal weights move the rotor opposite of engine speed increasing advance of spark. When the vacuum pulls, it doesn’t pull the mechanical...

Next time out when you going over 60, pull the choke out about half and see if it cures it or not. If it does, you’re too lean.

Chilidawg- “it has no advance at all and it ran better than it ever did”

At 53 degrees total advance...

At least one of the manuals out there has the firing order wrong. One coil fires front cylinders, 1-2 the other fires rear cylinders 3-4. With the wires on backward, the result is gunshot backfires.

I had 1000 heads on it. I went back to the 1200 heads and I think it’s better, but ran out of warm weather to conclusively say so. A little known fact about the swap: it is often cited that the 1000...
