Re: Rebuilding brakes

Thanks Brian, the more I thought about it the more it seemed like that was the thing to do. From what I can tell this was the original brake fluid from 1979, there was some really nasty buildup in...

Oh I am definately looking forward to it. This will be a nice way to really make it "my" bike - maybe add a personal touch or two :D

Re: Looking for another bike

Looks like I have my work cut out for me...

I went out to bleed the brakes and check the other fluids when I noticed that the bike smelled like gas. I started looking a little closer at what was...

Re: Looking for another bike

No, it was repainted (a good job too) and I have yet to find any indication of what the original color was. It was reciently done and is not buffed up yet so it will look even better with a bath. ...

Re: Looking for another bike

Yea, I got a great price and I like being able to do work on it myself. It still feels a bit big for me comming from a lil' 250cc before this but I like the added power.

I think the gs850 was an...

Re: Looking for another bike

Well, here she is. The name Shelly came to mind and it seems to have stuck in my head - so for now she is Shelly. She is very clean but will still need some work done to replace and/or rebuild a...

Thanks for all the input! I am still in search of "the bike" but in the process I have come across a Yamaha Triple that is calling to me. It would need some work but looks like it could be a real...

Re: Looking for another bike

Well as much as I would love to get a new bike it is just not really a possibility right now (and probably not the best idea considering my limited experience). I would love to hit the roads with...

Re: Hello Everyone, New rider here with some questions.

If you can find a used 250cc bike do it, they are cheap and you can easily resell them when you are ready to move on. I picked up a nearly new (2300mi) Nighthawk 250 for $1000, I can probably sell...

Re: New Gear

Actually I am going to try and stay away from them so that I don't have to pay the 8.25% sales tax.

The more I look the more I am starting to like the options offered by Tour Master, is there any...

Re: Older new bike

Wow, thanks for all the info!

I have changed enough bicycle tires that I don't figure it can be to much different (except for the obvious). I will let you know how it goes and post some more...

Re: Older new bike

Ok, thanks!

Two last questions: I have a tire tool for installing and removing bicycle tires, can I use that on these tires and save the installation cost? Also, do they need to be balanced like...

Re: Older new bike

I am having a lot of trouble finding tires for the bike, it seems like the only thing that is in the size I need and tubed is more suited for dirt. The tires are 90/100-18 (front) and 120/90-16...
