I've found that there is no reasoning with unreasonable people. I was cutting a tree down on my own property one day, and I put my ladder on the other side of the fence leaning over it onto the tree to get a better angle to cut the tree without killing myself. After about an hour, the neighbor comes outside and the first thing he said was "get the fuck off my property". He didn&
Yeah I've been dealing with this motorcycle salvage place up in NH. Seems like a helpful enough guy but it's taking him forever to find me a #3 carb.
Literally broke one of the carbs. The posts that hold the floats. One just snapped off. Now I need to find a new carb or set of carbs. Definitely gonna let a pro rebuild and clean them now.
Took off the tank and side covers today. Polished up super nice. I can't believe how good this paint looks for 36 years old. Got the brake unstuck too. Now I need to rebuild the master cylinder and bleed them. I also need to change the oil and clean the carbs. Baby steps.
Looks decent in the picture, but there is a crappy piece of metal welded on where the silencer meets the headers. The opposite side, is also rotted right through.
Looking for a stock exhaust, which from what I've heard are nearly impossible to find in decent shape. I found a look alike online. It was nearly $600 for the silencers alone. If you run across one of those in good shape for a decent price that would be sweet. Other than that I think for the most part the bike just needs cleaning, adjusting and maybe some seals. Thanks for offering to lo
Well I decided I wanted something new to play with. So I decided to go bigger. I took a 250 mile drive to Maine and bought a 1973 Honda CB 350 Four cylinder.9000 miles. Formerly owned by a man named Davy Crockett. License plate even said Davy. Anyway, it needs carb work, an exhaust, the front brake is stuck and it needs plenty of cleaning up.Enjoy. If anyone knows where I can get some good p
Post pictures of the CB goodness!!! They are such sweet bikes and were way ahead of their time. If only I could find a good one for cheap.
Yeah I checked Craigslist and only found a couple. I used www.searchallcraigs.com. It gives you all craigslist listings. Closest one I found was really nice but in the Bronx, over 3 hours from here. I just want a clean, not tooo messed up one. Maybe one needing a cleanup and some tweaking. Not too comfortable buying a junker.
Anyone know someone that wants to get rid of a 1970s Honda? Either a CB 450, or a CB 750? I think they are sick bikes. I'm taking a Motorcycle training course in April and hopefully getting my license soon after. I want something cool that not everyone has but they are tough to find. It'd be nice to have a new project that isn't too far gone. Please. Anyone!
So I looked it up and the R is for resistor. Should I be using a resistor plug? Anyone that knows the lowdown on plugs please fill me in.
Got an Airsal and I noticed it came with a different than stock plug. I believe it was a NGK BR9HS. What would the advantage be to having a different than stock plug?
I did take a chance. I got it in a few days. No problems whatsoever. Damn good price.
http://www.thedjhouse.com/item/100392/65cc airsal for $105!!
I just installed a 65cc airsal on my A35. With the stock 14/12 carb, and biturbo exhaust, what ballpark should I be in for jets? Break-in procedure?
I have a Tomos with an A35. I installed an Airsal kit a few months ago and it has been running great. Yesterday it was running really rough and I suspected it was the spark plug. I changed it out to a different type and th bike runs but it is about 8-10 mph slower than it used to be. The plug was originally the BR9HS plug that came with my Airsal. The one I put in was a god knows what that cam
Clean carb, check fuel filter, replace the air box or upjet. Check exhaust port. Tighten the intake screws. If you still can't get it to run, take off the cylinder head and take a look at the piston and cylinder. I had a similar problem and it turns out I had very little compression due to a really scraped up piston and cylinder. I ended up replacing the piston and cylinder with a 65 cc
Same thing happened with my Tomos. I got sick of scuffing my freshly painted wheels trying to seat them. I got frustrated and finally inflated them really high. THey popped into place. Then I corrected the pressure and off I went.
Bump, anyone know? What's gonna happen if I put these on? Will they use too much juice and cause the other lights to dim?
So the last couple of nights I went for a short ride. Tonight it was about 65 degrees and last night it was about 50. For the first half mile or so, throttle response sucked and the engine sputtered. It went away after about a mile or so. What's the problem. Plug maybe?Airsal, 64 jet, stock carb biturbo. Tomos LX.
oops. I'll try that link again."Turn signals":http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2-PAIRS-4X-MOTORCYCLE-TURN-SIGNALS-BLINKERS-FLASHERS_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1742Q2em153Q2el1262QQcategoryZ35598QQihZ015QQitemZ250244373706QQtcZphoto

If it is like the 2000 targa lx, white and blue are high and low beams. Brown is the ground. Not sure which is high and which is low but trial and error should be able to tell you.
Pretty easy actually. Unbolt the two studs on the bottom of the engine where the exhaust pipe connects to the engine. Look for black sooty crust blocking the pipe and the airflow from the combustion chamber all the way out to the pipe. Hope it helps. It could be something else too. It's worth a shot.
Plugged exhaust possibly?
Oops pic didn't attach. Check here ^
For a better idea of the paint. This is what it looks like in direct sunlight. The paint is Duplicolor Effex. It has a really cool chameleon metal flake.I also found a great clear coat to use. It is I believe Duplicolor Engine enamel. If you buy the clear version, you get a temperature, oil, fuel resistant coating great for tanks. I have dripped on the paint and wiped it off damage free for
!http://www.mopedarmy.com/img/gallery/CIMG1847small.jpg!Well after about a month of tearing it down, painting cleaning, repairing, waiting for parts, scratching my head, changing the cylinder, piston, clutch, wiring, etc. I'm done for the most part. All that's left is to fix the wiring.Enjoy.
I just put on an Airsal, but the problem existed before then. Where would I be able to find one?
