Seat

Thank you for the link Mike. After looking at the interchangeable parts post by Crazy Steve, I have discovered I have a 80-81 seat on a 79SF bike. That explains the large gap in the back. Was looking...

Clutch

Ok, I need to change the oil anyway. If I need to I can always suck some out with a siphon. How about the oil? Haven't looked, but I always used Castrol 20w50 before, but if the synthetic stuff is...

Front Fork Seal Fix

Hello again. Haven't been on the site for a while, but I decided to resurrect the old beast. No excuses, just got tired of working on the old bike. So, the reason I threw my hands up in disgust was...

Parts

No, I think I will take a pass on the parts. It was something I had thought about, but I don't have a desire to follow through on. Right now I'm still trying to sort out my wiring problems and brake...

CNC Stuff

Haas are great machines. The one's I've been around are screaming fast compared to the Hurcos the Journeymen get to play with. I may be incorrect, but the Haas seem to be tied to computer software...

Handlebar switch

Sandblasting

I can use the shop sandblaster with no problem, I just didn't know if it would rough the surface up too much. With 80 grit aluminium oxide and 150psi it should do the job. Do I use self etching...

Other Switch

Didn't get a response on the wiring so I went and took the 79F switch apart, and the solder joints are coming apart in that one also. For now I'm dead in the water.
