k guys i dont post alot here.
but heres my project i have going on right now
So what are you at now? And what are your plans? I am almost done with a restoration on an '83.
This sounds like it's going to be a fun project and a fun bike.
What all do you plan on doing to it?
Lace up some 17s and put Avon Distanzias on the rimzzzz. Plus, get a pipe. Those little KE100s benefit big time form a pipe and jetting. I knew a couple guys who had them, and the one guy who had one that we put a pipe and jetted would RUN away from the stocker like the stocker was running out of gas.
n the now shot, is that a Honda tank on it?
THEY SELL PIPES?!??!?!?! :huh Dude! Where?
I have a 1973 G5. Same bike basicly. I spent a lot of time searching for a pipe made to fit. The only company that I found for sure was Torque engineering, Whisperin Smith. Some are made to bolt on to a G5 or KE100. However there are other vintage expansion chambers that will work. Exit on the left. I picked up a nos one from ebay. Modesett is the brand name, I cut the header of the stocker and welded it on the Modesett. Also had to cut a frame tab for the tool box. I had already removed the box.
I thought I would add that there is a large weight savings. Much better sound and power. It looks great ( maybe pics later tonight). Well worth the time to track it down.
FMF use to make a fatty for it but I don't think they do anymore but one might find one for sale on Ebay or some thread.
I almost forgot this. Hooker made a pipe for the ke100 G5.
he other thing is Kwak made a race bike in 100cc called the Greenstreak, if you can find parts for one of those buy the pipe. I think it'll fit and those greenstreaks were friggin fast for a 100. Like fast 125 fast. I toasted everyone racing a Greenstreak flattrack (all stock) in the 125 class for a season on one.
sweet! that thing is sick! now i want one....
The Greenstreak was a 250cc. You are thinking of a G31M Centurian. Search Steve McQueen and ringadingdoo. 18hp .
sorry its been a while since i updated
yes its a honda cb 125 gas tank.
also heres some updates.
i cleaned up the wiring harness and added clip ons and new headlight brackets.
this is my little sister on it as it sits now.
i plan on making a carbon fiber tail for it.
also i do wanna find a new pipe but i cant seem to find one. anyone have a link?
future plans are as follows
chop the sub frame
carbon fiber tail
some good slick tires
and some performance mods.
i made a solo gauge out of the stock one by putting it into a drink bottle
Haha! nice job! love to see that thing come to life! if you have any questions on where things go i would be happy to help! by the way, would you by any chance not be needing those tires? i could really use them for the ice i could probably pay $5-$10 for shipping
i would say sure but man those are some NASTY old rubbers.
i rode that bike for about 2 years then it hit a shed for 5.
it had those tires on it for 6 years now.
also i dont know when im going to put new ones on because i need them on till i get this entire project done and thats in the soonest 2 months.
I was thinkin' about putting spikes on there. and just using them in the winter time. Although if they're to cracked up (lol) then i don't know if they'd hold up to what i plan on doing with them.
if anyone wants a more detailed thread heres a link to my home forum,
well home forum as in i post on it the most. im not really a net junky s the 500 post i have on there is an acheivment XD
Lookin good there, TX. Thought you could use some of the 'Kawasaki Speed Tuning' advice I found in the back of an old service manual:
Thats from my build here: Link
