would like a yd
another honda joining the stable soon.
Played with the SL125 a little today when it stopped raining.....I was going to try and start one of them but have decided it’s not worth it as I am going to fully rebuild the engine anyway... interesting that the PO said this one was a runner...not sure how when you see inside the carby.
Hmm no float or valve... yep it was a runner.
Then there is the wiring... this lot was covered up with Mastic wrapped in tape..... REALLY!!
And the Regulator connections...
You really do have to wonder at the ingenuity of people who want to go bush bashing...
I wonder what they used to do the dishes...
At least the carby off the other bike wasnt too bad internally.. idle circuit is fully blocked though.
Did some work on the drz400 today, I found some broken wires to the voltage reg and found the side stand switch wires cut.
I stripped and cleaned the carb, installed a new battery and fitted a new throttle assembly and handle bars. I also found the carb to airbox boot had holes in it so that will need to be replaced.
Will try and get a new plug for it tomorrow and will hopefully have a running bike. The good news is that there are heaps of spares on gumtree so it shouldn’t be too exy to fix the last few things
I have been doing the work at home,
I miss my tools at the shop
Yesterday was meant to be a day to work on my bikes; I did about 10mins work. But I did have a good time at the interruptions, went to baptism, had some interesting conversations, went bike riding (mountain bike riding: yuck to pedalling, but my fitness isn't too bad). Oh, and I'm buying a ZX-6R! Mostly because I don't fix the bikes I have.
It looks like that poor little SL125 has seen a lot of abuse over the years. You have really got to question the maintenance skills of some people.
The ZX-6R looks nice.
Drz400 runs with a new plug
Speaking of not fixing my bikes: I got the CBR 400 to start and run today! Needs a bit of work, still, so it is still a while to go.
Been out riding my new bike
Look what I found in a bin! lol got it running, sold that afternoon
Pulled the carb on my 81 KZ250G LTD. Just as I feared, diaphragm is torn. Any ideas on where to find a new replacement? Its a single, CVK32.
Nearest kawi dealer said $380 from Japan!
That would be for the whole slide unit
some around ...
I decided to strip down one of the SL125's to stockpile what I could from it.. and give me back some room in the garage.
Turns out the frame that has been brazed will go to the bike graveyard... the head is twisted and slightly offset and the steering tube has a distinct bend in it so she has had a really good hit front on.
Salvageable items... Battery box.. tank, footpeg bracket, bash plate, engine and (most likely) swing arm.
Rear shocks are toast.. front and rear hubs are pretty poor in the brake drum area.. rear rim looks to be not too bad.
I need to get plenty of heat onto the swingarm bolt as it will not move much at all right now... and I cant fit the frame into my press right now.. but the Ryobi Cordless grinder method might work
SRX play time tomorrow I think... try and move things on a bit there....
That frame would be perfect for a bobber/chopper/cafe bike builder, they are going to cut them up anyway.
Well if there is anyone that wants it... it is theirs, unless the Ryobi method of swing arm removal is pout into action tomorrow
I went for a little drive (to Brisbane) to pick a bike I was buying off of @kiffsta. Since I was going that way, I asked a couple of other people if they wanted anything taking while I am going. That escalated quickly: upgraded the vehicle and trailer, 6 extra stops! When it came time to load up, there wasn't room for the bike! I was going to put it on top of the load, but it would have been precariously mounted (if we could get it up there safely) and may not have made the 750km home. Big thanks to @kiffsta for his help and (immense) patience! See you next trip...
Just bought myself an 81 cbx1000, ohhhh a 6 Cylinder bike ... fairings and stays are off as it has just been painted , a bit of reassembly and I should be good to go.
This should be interesting
that is awesome on so many levels
They look heaps better without the fairing, IMHO.
