Just had a set of Michelin PR4's fitted. Ordered from tyreleader.co.uk (great price and quick delivery) and got my local guy to fit them.

  • My CBF is a 2008 and the tyres (BT57's) were both date stamped 2007 - 7 year old rubber! When I bought it 2 years ago it only had 1700 miles on the clock, its now got 5,500.

  • Expect around 15,000 miles from BT57's if your not hard on them.

  • I hope to get at least 8k out of my new tyres, as I'm not a knee down person. However when I have an open road, I will make rapido progress!

WTS (WTT for Yamaha BW350) 1985 Honda ATC 350x has been restored. The bike has lots of work put into it to have it fully restored new Maier plastics re-upholstered seat. The bike runs perfect. Purrs in the mountains and on the dunes. The suspension has been rebuilt in the past month. Brakes have been upgraded to cr80 brakes giving the trike brake lights and upgraded stopping power. The trike has new tires all around and a set of paddles on bead lock rims so you can run low pressure at the dunes. Please feel free to call or txt me at 707-496-8386 with any questions. Located in Rexburg Idaho. $1600

350X riders 1 of my X the clutch seems fine while riding it but once u let it sit over nite or a couple days. I can't get it in gear without it dieing and jumping forward if I rev it real high it sometimes will take gear. Cable is adjusted rite and clutch does not slip, it seems very Notchy while shifting also. Is the plates just glazed over? Any ideas?

%d comments
  • Thanks for the help guys, it's really appreciated.

  • Gotta the clutch out, this motor was a crate motor been on the 3 wheeler about 4 years, the plates have deposits from the fibers like stained on them. I take it's from sittin over 20years. The clutch cover has never been off it appears and factory gasket with the honda gray glue. So new clutch kit should fix it rite up. Thanks again for everyone's input.

  • Aha! Told ya sittin over time makin them stick :p

Anyone in the Virginia area? We are planning a trip in August to the north end of the Blue Ridge Parkway, riding on Skyline Drive, and taking a day in DC to see the monuments. We were going to ride back to Cherokee, NC, but have decided that we would rather find new roads instead of going somewhere we can ride on the weekend. So any suggestions on some pretty scenic roads in the Roanoke or Front Royal or even South of Roanoke areas?

HELP — Honda 350x

HELP!!

Recently bought a cheap 85 350x that was rebuilt and has low compression. Was able to get it running by popstarting it and had it running a few minutes. He had jug professionally honed for the new n piston he bought. Any clue on why it has low compression?

Thanks

%d comments
  • I asked if it started any better hot or was the same not wanting to start hot or cold?

  • It didn't want to start when warmed up. I'm only 400 into the trike and came with a few parts motors. I don't have alot of time, so if it's gonna be alot of work, it will be up for sale soon. Or go in the garage with the rest

  • Were the valves recut??? Build up of carbon and like all others said your timing may be off due to stretch cam chain. Did you use brand new gaskets??? It makes a huge differance. And did you properly torque the head bolts. Or just crank them down which causes cracks in the head which may be why no compression. And is the spark plug the right one???? Properly torque???

Hello everybloody after a bit of advice again not that I don t know my way... — Honda VTR 1000 Firestorm owners

Hello everybloody.. after a bit of advice again... not that I don't know my way around my bike but just want to make sure I have everything covered... Hour or so ago had a slight punt up the rear end while stopped at a junction... no biggie though does seem i'm jinxed... painted the bike last year and 6 weeks later it was knocked over then painted it again this year and about 4 weeks later bump up the ass end... hmmmmmm Anyways.. light enough bump which just shoved me forward a few feet, no slipping off or dropping the bike. Main impact was the tyre although he did catch and damage my right side exhaust can (kinked the can around the support band at rear foot rest) can't see anything else that I should be worried about but was wondering if there was anything that I should look closer at or any weak spots i should know about. Guy looking to pay cash rather than go through insurance which suits me fine... but want to make sure I don't miss anything when working out a price I want to put bike right or miss something that may bite me later. Cheers.

%d comments
  • I can check the bike... just want to know if there are any points of interest that I should be looking at in particular. As it is I can't see anything to worry about other than obvious bent exhaust. Can't be bothered running about with the bike, just want to work out a price so he can check me some dosh. Either way I will come out on top.

  • Don't forget the whiplash!

  • Third party ins been in touch.. will send them some photos over weekend and start ball rolling on Monday, will wait and see what they say... as long as my bike is fixed that will do me.

I've been finding that, at least in my area of the country, that there is unfortunately almost no market for these bikes. I'm selling a really clean, 7,800 mile, great running 1984 Sabre 700, and a friend is selling an even cleaner 1,700 mile 1982 V45 Magna - and neither of us is seeing any action after several weeks of listing. Each of us has had a couple of emails, but they're just the typical Craigslist lowballers offering 50% of the asking price.

Is it just our area, the economy, or do the Sabre and Magna have an extremely limited audience?

%d comments
  • Lol yes Bill... $3300.00 and he rode it that summer and then parked it inside and didn't touch it.... Lol

  • My thoughts on the fact these are 30+ year old bikes is their legiondary shock and awe value. Seems everybody thinks they have to have a Harley these days and most of us know how much power chrome will produce. Secondly is the "rugged individualism" of a Harley, after all 15 Harleys roll in some place and the noise smoke and bluster clear, what do you see? 15 cookie cutter bikes that all look about the same. Then in rolls an old Magna (the machine that had to be regulated to keep Harley alive). People tend to step back and gawk. It's the people who know the reputation that are most respectful. Like an old guy told me back in my hot rod days, 'watch what you say around us old guys and our old machines, you might have one hand you your shorts after your spankin'.

  • Guess it's just a timing thing. Sold my Sabre tonight....

The final touch on the bike. First pic is the before carb sync. Second is after they are adjusted. You can see they are level meaning they have the same amount of vacuum on each carb. I have to admit this was not a simple task. The adjustment screw was buried.
