    So, I recently got a nice shiny new set of rotors, and I have the calipers for the gen1 (the newer model dual pistons) and I need the adapter that allows those new calipers to be mounted on the 85 forks.... I'm hoping someone has them, I've checked with Morleys Muscle and they no longer have...

    Sport bike front wheel upgrade

    I'very been looking for a good front tire for my 1st Gen. It seems they only make bias ply for that size rim. Doesn't make much sense to me since we haven't seen bias ply tires on cars in over 30 years, so I went searching for a better solution. Many threads talk about retro fitting a sport bike...

    Just did the double D clutch upgrade. I left the half clutch in the back so I'd have some slipping not to break any parts. But it won't go into Nuetral when the bike is running. When the bike is off it goes into N without an issue. Had it apart to check 3 times now and I can't figure it out for...
