    Best place to find a replacement vacuum slide?

    Thanks! I literally have 5 miles in the seat on this bike and am not close to being sure about having it all squared away. With that being said you have any idea how you’d expect a bike to run in that condition?

    Best place to find a replacement vacuum slide?

    Hello everyone from Ohio. So I bought a new to me 1985. It idled ok, went to take it on the highway and got some stumble/bog. Could be bad gas but I pulled the carbs and things look pretty damn clean. I could see light through all four pilot jets. This bike has a stage 7 kit fwiw. I’m cleansing...

    Can anyone identify these rotors?

    Yes is suppose what I had on other bikes was semi floating. They are noisy at idle but seem to work just fine. I dont think they are my thing.

    Can anyone identify these rotors?

    Thank you! Is it common for these to have a lot of play in your experience? It’s hard to estimate but they can move maybe up to 1/16” inside the riveted housing. I can grab the rotor with two fingers and make it go clicking clack in a way that just doesn’t seem right. I’ve never had a set of...

    Can anyone identify these rotors?

    Hi everyone. Just bought a new to me 1985. Had a bunch of yamahas (fz1, Fjr) even rebuilt an old venture royale several years back. I noticed some rattling when I first rode this new bike thought it was the headlight bezel then noticed these rotors seem to have a crazy amount of play built into...
