Trying to get ready for the up coming riding season . I borrowed Matthaus's bike lift and started the teardown . (Thanks Matt)At the end of last season I found a piece of a wave washer in my gear oil for the transmission so the saga starts . I also had some other maintinence that is needed that I would like to get done . This bike is a pain to teardown mostly because of the ABS . Hopefully tommorow I will have the trans out and disassembled ,figuring out what parts are needed .I did over 14,000 miles last year hoping for 20k this year . Dave

No pics. I really need to get a digital camera someday. People keep telling me I need to get a cell phone too. Anyway my list of bikes owned goes like this:
'76 YZ125
'81 YZ250
'81? Yamaha 650 Maxim
'86 FJ1200
'88 Honda 250R quad
'89' Yamaha Banshee 350
'89 YZ250
'93 Yamaha TDM850
'93 Yamaha FZR1000
'01 YZ250 (still own)
'01 Yamaha FZ1 (still own)

I've had all the street bikes at the dragstrip except for the 650. The FZR & FZ1 have been drag raced the most. I always wanted to try a road course but never have. Drag strips are much more common around here so thats what I do.

e.alleg,
Yep, the 250R was the 2-stroke. I've been amazed at the prices those things still bring. I paid $2500 for a barely used one back in '88. It handled really good and it ran good but it didn't have the hard 2-stroke hit I was after (in stock form). That's why I bought the Banshee. That's a beast. It didn't get around a motocross track nearly as good as the Honda but on a flat track or other wide open area, it was great and would leave the Honda in the dust. Ended up selling both of them and went back to bikes.

Last night I just picked up a nice 1978 Yamaha XS1100, it runs and on the road, needs some TLC work, tune up, cleaning and polishing, etc...minor things. But should be a good cruiser. Pretty much all original except exhaust (Kerker 4 into 1) and the new tires, battery, etc.. :)

Dang, that makes me miss my old '80 XS850G that my father bought new and sold to me around '88 or so. It was the "standard" version (not the Special) and it really was a sharp looking bike. Big, tall, and heavy, but it was sweet on the highway.

I put a 3 into 1 exhaust on it for a while, but it lost all the bottom end torque (larger header pipe diameter), so I put the stock 3 into 2 system back on. I (stupidly) sold it for cheap when I went to college. It had I recall about 30,000 miles on it, but it looked showroom new yet.

At least I still have the original sales brochure..... sniff sniff.

Here's my current ride to work. After riding it for 34 years, I sold my '63 Triumph in 2006 on ebay to a man in Wisconsin, who died of a heart attack one month later.

I bought the '78 Guzzi Robin in 2003 for $35 at a yard sale. It had 400 original miles on it and was in showroom condition. I take short trips to work in the warmer months.
