i like the look of the larger tank.
also, the r65 tank is brown. i guess you really don't see color.
That tank is brown? Looks black to me
And you're right ... and now I'm thinking about some white fenders.
It's been a steady rain here for 48 hours. I can't really even ride it ... I'd be out there in a heartbeat if it were July. This cold stuff ain't fun. Sign.
I will trade your cold for mine
Christmas present? At least ... yours turns solid for a while. For Dec-Jan, it will remain 30-50F, overcast and wet. There will be brief moments of sun and interlude ... They will serve to remind us of the coming spring.
Mind if I borrow the Dauber, then? My 'stich will keep me toasty
here's my parts list for the FD breather
A quick update ... I do like blingy parts ... and one thing that has always bothered me was the fact that I couldn't tell the level of the oil in my transmission. NO MORE. I got two .. one for the Dobber, a one for BB. Call it a late Christmas Present.
Cool! you can also tell if the cappuchino is ready or not Those look pretty cool, except for the new socket neededto open it up.
Nice find, will this Oil Eye fit all Airhead Transmissions?
It should. They had two listed ... My experience is with '76 to 94 transmissions, and it's been my experience that this plug is the same for all of those.
Stage is correct though ... you will be needing to carry the 'new' wrench in your tools to get it off ... I will see when I get home what size it is. From memory, it looked to be a 19 or a 22mm, and that would be included in the standard tool kit ... but I will confirm.
EDIT: It's a 22mm, same size as the nut on the twinshock rear axel bolt.
This makes me happy. This is with it on the centerstand. The oil level is just above the center of the viewing port ...
Beater, that is AWESOME!
You know what this means.......you know need to bring the rest of the bike up to standard!
If I did that, it would be a F800GS.
Why don't you weld some steel strapping around the outside of the footpegs pegs, serrate it, paint them, & call them done? Got to be better then slippery rubber or bare metal with no grip...
That's next. I have an idea around those ... however I'm also going to use the same frame mounts and put the pegs back and down a couple of inches. PS - The pegs themselves are aluminum!
Brilliant, thanks Beater.
Did you know that a 2005-2008 Midpipe from a Kawasaki ZX-10R fits perfectly on the collector output of a monolever airhead? (See, carrying around a caliper does help!)
PS - She's REALLY quiet now ...
AWESOME Beater! Love that bike!
