    Just like a scab, it's best to not start picking, next thing you have a bunch of parts on order! Worn top spherical bearing on the shock turned into lets just rebuild everything while I'm in there.

    Slant Six?


    The Chevy & Ford I6s don't have cam chains, so they don't have that problem. Regular oil changes help too.

    Correct.

    Not using Pennzoil or Quaker state helps too. At least the 60's and 70's blends. They were a parafin base oil. I had another old slant six that had Quakers state run thru it that looked very similar.

    oil change a week ago. little leftover residual smuge from around the oil filter. that 883 was oil tight and right.

    How's it feel being able to make a simple turn without dragging parts of the bike on the pavement?

    just a few i've owned from in the past. unfortunately no pics of the XR650L SuMo. Husky was the most fun.

    @bringenufgun, looks like every time you changed homes you changed bikes?
    Nice bikes.

    If you decide you don't like that tall fairing, I'd be interested in buying it off you... I tried to order one of those from Rallyraid recently, sent them an email to follow up, and still haven't heard anything back.

    besides the glamour shot of the black CBRXX and "Night Moves" all at my humble crib. another of it a home base with my V-Strom a few years back.
    i bought and sold a ton of vintage stuff for a long time during the vintage fervor starting in the early 2000's. died down to a dribble now. also had a local dealer cheap selling me all his non-marque stuff for years. those were the days....... DSCN0306.jpg

    have a little financial emergency that popped up with a water leak in my basement discovered late this morning. apparently the frigid weather shifted my foundation which cracked a pvc pipe that goes from the sink in the hall bathroom to the main drain.vanity out, drywall cut out, toilet has to come out, catastrophic for me.
    i'm listing this bike in the flea market to hopefully defer the cost of this repair. $1800.00 takes it with the provision the buyer takes it with the undated but signed off clear title.
    2015 with 2500 miles. stock fuel tank, exhaust and headlight number plate/bezel included. will get more pics in the listing.
