    Absolutely love the look of that bike, it's the shizz!!

    Shows what can be doen with perserverence and ingenuity


    EXCEPT for the half-Arab wrapped around the zorst-pipes.
    It 'cheapens' the appearance of the rest of the bike, it smacks of "Oh that bit of the exhaust looked like shit cos you could see (name you pet ugly - bolt hole/rough weld etc.) so I decided to hide it".

    Only it draws attention.

    Or it keeps the copious amount of boot marks off the exhaust, as what happened in it's previous incarnation. Oh, and the wrap takes some of the high frequency edge off the timbre of the exhaust. Stainless 2" is a bit rattly and tin sounding.




    Gonna make a new rear brake linkage and get it done purple as well. The linkage extension that came with the forward control kit has always been poxy. I can do better. And actually I've already modified the kit with different bushings - the way they say to set it up isn't as nice as it can be. Mods were done a year ago though.

    Boot marks look worse. And dont come off once melted. Neither does melted saddlebags (or the chocolate that once sat in them)

    Maybe someone has an idea on this...

    Bike seems to be running really hot!

    While there's been a fair amount of traffic coming home each day, I can definitely "smell" the engine. The overheat light hasn't come on though. And the weather is reasonably chilled at 5pm.

    And when I pull into home and turn off the engine, you can hear the radiator fan wirring down.


    Seems a bit odd... only time I've really had that is in really bad traffic mid summer, or a REALLY hot day.


    Coolant change and oil change??? I dunno what else to do!

    That's where I'd start. Make sure you bleed the water pump when you fill it back up.

    Is the radiator getting hot? if not something is wrong with your cooling system (thermostat, pump etc). If it does get nice and warm, could be something else like the jetting.

    Gidday mate

    Bikes looking awesome!, if she's running really hot might be running way to lean.
    Other than that, yeah, oil & coolant change may help...but with a zorst change etc, my money is on the air/fuel mix being out

    Hope all is well tho, keep up the great work

    Well it's not really an exhaust change. the only difference is the chrome tips with the down turn. The 2" stainless mufflers have been on there for a good 20,000K before that, with the same 4" baffle and packing.

    Be real careful about it getting warm, head gaskets are a shit of a job on these.

    How long did it sit? For the sake of fuck all money, get a new thermostat.

    As far as engine and intake is concerned, the only changes in the last 20,000K or so is that I've

    cleaned the air filter,
    replaced the pre-air filter (as old one had disintegrated),
    cleaned the air intake and stacks and put carb cleaner down the carbs,
    new heat wrap on exhaust,
    chrome tips with a down turn.. no more than 5-10mm longer than before.


    Exhaust has pretty much been exactly the same since just before Sep 9, 2010.. going by the promo video I've posted above where it shows clips of the mufflers being made.


    Haven't done an oil change or coolant change in last 6 months. Been sitting since January, while I work on it.
