Thought this might help someone out here...

Found this somewhat local (to me) bike.

http://winstonsalem.craigslist.org/mcy/3072168019.html

I think they are really cool. But seeing as that I am a transplant from ExPo and haven't even gotten my first two-wheeled vehicle yet, I'll leave this for someone else. I'm going with a DR200se or some other DS for my first. But these look like a lot of fun.

Joined the club this morning! Beat the mad rush for this "good deal"... It was cheap for a BW, but it has a few issues.

Looks good from afar.






Has some serious oil gushers and some extremely noisey valves...





And of course a leaky fork seal.



Another project! Just what I needed.

Got 'er stripped down, drained a gallon of water from the carb... Currently soaking in Pinesol Replaced a couple of o-rings, tightened or replaced a couple of loose or missing bolts, tried adjusting the cam chain and setting the valves. Order an Oil filter, clutch cover gasket, air filter, and an allen bolt set to replace the stripped out screws. Don't know what they were thinking, but almost every screw on the engine is bunged up.



Motor is still way to noisey for my liking... Supposedly was rebuilt about 5 yrs ago, rode for 2, then sat for 3. Plan on fixing the oil leaks, doing a bit of a tune up, and riding it for a while to see if it POPS. Plan on stripping it down maybe this fall to change the pink paint back to red.

I've never heard of Pinesol for the carb. I have a KZ1000 that I need to go through the carbs. If Pinesol is the miracle cure I want to know all about it, since the big Z has four of them and I don't even want to work on one.

Can I get by with just spraying it on the tires? Will it give me a new bike smell again?

Spill the beans, we're dying to know.

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

To each their own, but heres my process:

Dissassemble carb(s) COMPLETELY

Scrape any serious gunk off

Put ALL parts in a bucket just big enoug to hold them

Fill bucket with pinesol so everything is covered

Let stand at least 24 hours

Carefully pour pinesol back into another container

Rinse parts one at a time gently under warm water scrubing with fingers or a toothbrush if desired, then set on paper towel to dry

Starting with the main body, blow parts off with compressed air. Spray with carb cleaner. Blow off with air again. Spray part with WD40. Install newly cleaned part. Repeat until carb is fully assembled.

Pinesol is not only an EXCELLENT degreaser, but it apparently reacts chemically with aluminum. The aluminum, once rinsed and oiled, looks NEW. I've done this on at least 10 - 20 different carbs, some that i had cleaned multiple times and still had issues with, and they have all worked perfectly after. I have soaked aluminum parts in it for a few months just to see what would happen, didnt really affect it either way. Seems
Ike 24-48 hours is alls you need. I have an ice cream bucket full of pinesol and a smaller bucket i put the carb in and fill. Probably do about 10 carbs before the pinesol is looking realy gunky- gets this kind of slime build up that i think comes from reacting with the gasoline? But you can seperate the slime from the good pinesol and then drain of the silt and keep right on using it.

There are a few threads on this i think in the garage section? Might sound like a lot of work, but if hou have ever had to clean a carb more than once and STILL not had it running right, you will love this. I just like the fact that they come out looking like new. I'll post a pic of my bw carb tomorrow.

I made 2 of these skidplates (one for each of my 350's) at my work. They are much stronger than the factory skidplate. Made from diamond plate aluminum.

What I used to play with before I got into Bigwheels:







Bigwheels are much cheaper to operate, and easier to maintain. I don't take the jeep out very much anymore since I discovered Bigwheels.

So here's my Pinesol Process... Wish I had taken a pic before I started. The carb was typical of one that had leaked, been ridden in the dust, dried, baked, and sat for a long time- nasty hard grunge all over the outside. Inside wasn't pretty either- fair bit of sludge buildup in the bottom and in the petcock.

Soaked for about 24 hrs in the little "vat"



Dump the pinesol into the big "vat" and heres what you see:



You can see the "slime" pinesol I was talking about here... doesn't seem to affect its ability to clean.



This part you need an understanding wife for. Thankfully, I have the most awesomest wife in the world.



One at at time, rinse and scrub under warm water then set to dry.



Once all the parts are washed, blow each one out REALLY good, hose it out with carb cleaner, blow it out again, the coat it in WD40. Get the next part, go through this process, install part. Repeat.

Ready to be dried:



Cleaned with carb cleaner:



Oiled with WD40



Assembled and ready to go back in.



Back in.



Gave the same treatment to the petcock too.



There ya go. Any questions class? Good. Lets get to work.

cr450 big wheel

During my daily craigslist search I came across a 1981 Honda CR450R (2stroke) that has been converted to a big wheel. I'd think that his price is high considering it's condition, but either way someone needs to buy this! http://slo.craigslist.org/mcd/3082955899.html
