I think Whitey has the best idea to call the Rice paddy. If they don't have it they might be able to cross reference another bike that used the same part.

Oversized bar stock, drilled to 16mm, then turned to 22mm OD, then hardened, is how you'd do it.

Re:Bronze swingarm bushing question Posted by RonKZ650 - 03 Feb 2009 17:38
_____________________________________
The bronze bushings were used on all those except the KZ650 was only in 1977. 1978-83 was needle
bearings. You don't want to put crap bushings in place of needle bearings even if they would fit. Buy the
4 needle bearings. Kawasaki part #92046-1115. 4 bearings are cheaper than one bronze bushing
through Kawasaki $11 each at bikebandit.com where it's around $46 each for the bronze bushings used
in 1977

_____________________________________
Please check with dealer to be sure, but according to Kawasaki.com, it looks like the KZ650B2 uses 4
needle bearings – part #92046-1115 (these are available Ron Ayers price = $8.80 each, Z1E may
charge less?) and 1 swing arm sleeve – part #42036-1012 (no longer available from dealer, but some
internet parts dealers have them). Always check the eBay part numbers against Kawasaki.com before
buying because the folks selling stuff very often list the wrong models for the parts their selling. You
may be able to get a refund if the seller is honest, if not, let us know his eBay ID so we are extra careful.

That does explain your mesh MC jacket made from an old potato sack.

It works, however I am always getting hungry for chips when I wear it.

Evening... My 640 exploits continue! If any of you have followed the 640 threads, you may have seen the HID headlight update that dirty_sanchez did on his (now my) 640. If not, and you have a little time... http://http://www.advrider.com/forum...d.php?t=197163
Anyway, when I got the bike, the low beam ballast was hosed. You'd hit the switch and it'd flicker but not fire. I ordered a set of H1 bulb/ballasts for $38 on eBay and got them in today. Two wire hookup. All I had to do was replace the bulb and ballast on the low beam side. I was done in half an hour and really wanted to try them out. Once I got out of town, I hit the high beam. Dirty had wired the switches so I could have the high beam on by itself or high and low at the same time. When that high beam lit, I could see every reflector for at least half a mile. Not "hey, is that a reflector down there?" but "Hole LEE COOOWW! This looks like a runway!" I've never seen motorcycle headlights this bright. I wish I'd have done this on my EXC when I had it. If you have a separate high beam bulb and low beam bulb, I'd at least look into this. You could probably put everything together for $150 or so. The low beam didn't seem to bother anyone, or at least they didn't bother to flash me. I used to hate riding at night. I did fifty miles tonight just because. These bulbs are only 35W as opposed to the 55Ws that come stock. Not bad, at least twice the light and a little more than half the power draw. I'm really liking this thing...

I'm always getting flashed with the low beams on. So I flash back to prove the point and they end up in a ditch because they can't see anything but a giant white spot for three hours.

That's nothing, you should have seen the utility quad on top of the Geo Tracker I followed up 33 from Nelsonville last weekend. Couldn't get past that one fast enough!

As a long shot try James T. Parker in Somerset PA. He was my dealer growing up now defunct. Has a website and still NOS parts in stock. He probably still has my 73 H-1 that my dad refused to store when I moved away. Said he didn't want it but he is probably making a few bucks parting it out now...

Unfortunately a sleeve from a B3/C3 model won't work as those models used bushings rather than needle bearings.

1,700 pairs of panties strewn along road

1,700 pairs of panties strewn along road
AP - Authorities are trying to solve a panties puzzle: why hundreds of pairs of mostly women’s underwear were dumped along the side of a road.

Fairfield County Deputy Gary Hummel said yesterday that the undergarments were found in trees and on hillsides in several spots this week on a road in Berne Township, about 30 miles southeast of Columbus.

He said some of the panties were still folded the way they’d come in packaging, while others appeared to have been worn. There were nearly 1,700 pairs in all, in a mix of colors and patterns. Hummel said that when collected, they filled 10 large trash bags.

He said investigators are “baffled” as to where the panties came from.

Obviously fall-out from the government's War on Panties. The street value of used women's panties is HUGE in Japan. Just check e-bay.
