Sorry kids, I've been busy.

21 days in Death Valley on the XRR, then I sold a few bits that I had been using for mockup on this project..got in on the HDB group buy to save a few bucks, that made me wait a month, then we moved my kid up to Oregon, then I got tangled up in another project.

I got my parts from HDB:




I'll add their other stuff to the Bandit as I can afford it.

I'm wrapping up the CB490 in the next few days, then the Bandit goes on the lift for the finishing touches. I'll looking at the end of April for a shakedown run.

Love it. My project has some inspiration. I knew taking that parts bike Bandit 600 in as part of a big trade would pay off one day.

Well guys, I hate to tell you this...I stole so many parts off this project to build the Road Zombie that I don't think it's gonna happen at this point.

I'm going to turn what's left of this thing into a chopper bobber thing.

I was going to do a RZ350 engined chop thing, but I don't have the cash to rebuild that engine right now and it's at least $2500 to do it right...engine alone.

I'm going to snatch the Bandit engine for the chopper. Look into moving the CR500 front end over to my XR650R along with the rear shock and wheel, Corbin seat fits the latest XRR that I have and my ass will thank me.

The garage is just chock full of dirt type bikes right now. I have the finished 1150GS/XRR bike, an almost plated XR650R with cool parts to put on it and a TY350 trials bike.

I've always wanted to do a chop of some kind and I have a bunch of saved parts in that direction over what I have left for dirt parts. I saw a CB750 chopper a few years ago and it looked so cool and smooth compared to all the rumbly twins.


Sorry poor beat up abused Bandit, this is your future:

Ok, ok, it's back on...have a buddy with a lathe now and figured out how to build the jack shaft to a strength point that's I'm happy with.

I stole some parts from this thing for other bikes, so I'm going to have to gather some stuff like handlebars and gauges.


Stay tuned...

Hey dudes,

Almost bought a 520 conversion sprocket to fit the engine, but a buddy was coming over to pickup a rotor and I had him bring me some CS sprockets...whaddya know, an XR650R CS sprocket is a bolt on!!

That part is solved!!

I've got a splined hub inbound and two machinable 14 tooth sprockets. I'll have to match the bore of the sprocket to the hub and narrow the teeth to 520 width. Then I'll have to harden them, might do the old make 'em glow red and quench them in used high carbon motor oil or maybe cryo treat them. It'll make more sense when I have all the parts in hand.

I think it's time for a bench top lathe...soon.

I welded up the cracked sidecover last night, not easy to do. Guys at work said that Jap engine cases are anodized and that's what makes them so hard to weld.

Benchtop lathes get thrown in the garbage every day up in Berkeley, don't they?

Now I'm seriously confuzled. Maybe I need to go back and read the thread again? If you've got the CS sprocket solved, whaddya need the 14 tooth sprockets for, an idler sprocket? And wouldn't it be easier to chuck up an abrasive grinder to the lathe or use a surface grinder to narrow the sprockets than to retemper them? Not that easy has anything to do with it. . . . .
