I was thinking sportie or would not have put up the pix. Sorry guys. Not a big deal either way - I still like it.
the orange one is a big twin. the link you posted is a sporty. guess they came in both flavors. no biggie.

Doin' my part to keep one alive! This is the $1500 89 I showed off in the Cheap Bike Challenge thread, getting a fresh set of gaskets. This part is resealing the case halves, my favorite part of any rebuild.

Split the halves,


clean good with carb cleaner, apply Yamabond,



Let it set up for about 10 min, smoosh em' together



Leave the small bead as proof of what you did.



God I love winter projects.

4 is the original McCoy
5 is for high vibration areas
6b is for high heat
7 is for rubber grips and whatnot
14 is a thread locker

I used 4, but now that I know this I might should've used 5

Some nice bikes in here! I don't care for the big HD but I always thought that a scrambled/touring sportster would be cool. The "big" problem is the small tank. Are there any cheap options to increase tanks capacity without going to a dual tank setup?

The factory tank off a Custom model is probably the best bang for the buck. It's listed at 4.5 gal. That is usually optimistic. Should get about a 200 mile range. That's farther than I'd want to ride one in one setting.

My current personal Sporty, this moto has been all over the U.S. as well as across mainland Mexico, and the full length of Baja. It still has mud from a patch of construction road that was on the Spine of the Devil from Durango, Mex to Mazatlan back in 2008.

I like it. No nonsense, minimal machine. Excellent gas gauge.
