That was one of two colors for the 80G's. The specials were far more popular in 80, and even more so in 81. But yes, the specials got the slotted rotors and the standards didn't, the H was the only...

If the rubber plug is needed and is missing it will hardly run at all off idle, as it will bog as the main circuit will get fed unrestricted fuel without going through a jet as with no plug that...

The problem with ethanol is that it's very corrosive and damages the fuel system components of older vehicles that are not designed for it. It also attracts water and will cause the inside of the...

No, the MC piston and caliber pistons are different sizes anyways. That's how the brakes work. If they were the same size you wouldn't be able to stop the bike.

The bungee is supposed to attach to the pieces that you want to cut off, all the way at the end of them, and should run under the carbs to hold those in together. There should be a small hole in...

If you have a broken mixture screw in the carb you're not going to get the idle to work right, or get it to take off from a stop right either until to fix that. I don't remember where they are, but...

80 and 81 standards in stock shape have the hazard switch as well, it's common to the 80 and later bikes, the control pods are the same for special and standard at least as far as the controls go.

I don't know, I thought the 80 and 81's were jetted the same, but only having an 80 I could be wrong. I've got an 81 engine in mine, but the carbs are 80 carbs with everything else being from 80.
