I had the KLR650 out this past week. Rode it work on the warm day, think it was Tues?
I have it apart in the garage once again for part 2 winter maintenance. Earlier in the winter, I removed the lower swing arm, cleaned and greased the bearings, soaked chain & greased rear wheel bearing. This w/e I am checking valve clearances, replaced one shim out of four. Valves were within tolerances but a tad on the tight side.

I also performed a three separate carb modifications which I'm excited about. Just from running the engine on the jack stand, I can hear a stronger engine. The factories always set up these bikes lean. It takes a few mods to bring them up to power.

I'll get out and test it after I get it back together today.

That's what I did, too. We had temps into the low 60's here on Tuesday - it was so nice I went home at lunch from work and rode the Buell back to work. That was the second time I've ridden it since I bought it back in January. The first time was a week earlier on the weekend - we had low 50's on that Saturday so I took it out for the first time. Boy, has motorcycle performance changed since the 80's !!!!! :shock: :shock:

Last night we had 3" of snow....... I suppose I shouldn't complain, it IS only mid February - heck, we're due for at least another good snow or two yet, and we've had blizzards in March.

The KLR is back together and there is noticeable power gain from a few carb. modifications. Temps were 37F, so couldn't get too spirited besides lots of cinders on every corner.

Don't laugh - it's what's left of a '82 CB450 and it was free. Typical Honda, it sits outside all winter and fires up on the 1st or 2nd try on last year's gas.

Should someone want to steal it they'll need to figure out which wires to hook the clip lead to. :D

Hey guys .. great bikes and pics! Here is my 01 SV 650 in its current state. Done a few "mods" to it to make it look how I think it should.

I have a rear hugger to get on there and I plan on repainting the bike soon.. pretty much same color but I figured since I have to paint the new hugger might as well repaint everything since I am up to 21,000 miles.

And since pictures are free and I see more than just bikes in this thread. My other love

Thanks to Beemerboy for posting a link to this thread. Didn't know there were so many of us bike riders in the group. It makes sense though since both riding and burning coal are non-conformist activities.

My first street bike was a 1971 Kawasaki H1 triple like this first pic. Had a lot of fun with it on the street and at the drag strip. When that got stolen I bought a new 1977 KZ1000. The next year all the factories came out with faster bikes, so I put a turbo on it to stay a step ahead. Still have that bike and ride it as seen in the second pic.

By 1980 drag racing was getting kind of old so for 1981 I bought a new GPZ 550 and went roadracing as seen in the third pic. I still have the bike and may race it again in the vintage racing club I belong to.

http://www.race-uscra.com/

I really missed the H1 that had been stolen so next came a 1974 Kawasaki 750 H2 triple. Bought it off a lawn in running condition for $250. Still have it and it runs fine.

Got another good deal on a used 1984 GPZ750 as seen in the 4th pic.

Somewhere along the line I picked up a 1964 Yamaha YDS3 250, a Yamaha R5 350, a CB350 Honda, and a 1972 Kawasaki H1 basket case.

The last bike I bought was the 1972 BMW racing sidecar rig that I had been riding for a few years. The guy that built it was retiring and gave me first dibs on buying it. We led the championship for a while this past year and ended up finishing third. We were still in the hunt right up until the last race of the season.
