I was just checking out the TPC trikes website, and I think once I get done with school in the next few months, I'm going to have one of those sick 450R's built, anyone have one? Or have had the opertunity to get on one? If so do you think it's worth the 8-10 grand to have one built? They look amazing, seriously sucks they quit building trikes in the 80's Such a waste of a beautiful market!

  • No kidding, well thank you. If it's not what I want I wont be doing it. 8,000.00 would be okay for a new machine, not used. If it was race built then 8,000.00 seems like a decent price. However, if that's not the case then I'm not wasting 8,000.00 I'll build one when I find the time, or when school, work, and family don't consume my life. Thanks for the info I'll keep the number for if ever I

  • am in the position to build one myself.

  • louis have u built one im prob going to build one as soon as finish someother projects

  • its depend on ur breking guys ....

  • nt changed 19000k done

  • It all depends on the rear brake usage. Some people automatically press the rear brake always even when not needed. At slower speeds front brake is enough for stopping, and rear is not needed. And some, accidentally, without knowing, just keep the leg slightly on the rear brake pedal. This will cause fastest wear out, sometimes as low as 3000 kms. My advice, use rear brake only when its absolutely necessary, such as sudden stopping, and stopping from higher speeds. At lower speeds avoid using rear brake. This way, my Dazzler's rear brake pads were still going good at 25k kms, still life of 5k kms is left. Also note, there are Dazzler owners who changed rear pads in just 2500 kms also. :)

  • hondarebelforum.com You'll get a great answer there. Join. It's free, and they are a very nice group of riders.

  • yep thanks Bob Garneau, I joined that when I bought the bike this year..just looking to see what others may have done thanks !

  • I didn't do any mods to my Rebel when I had it, so can't really say what you'd need to do to make a larger pillion seat.

  • sounds like a head stem bearing

  • Adam one of the first things any decent mechanic does when pushing a bike they are about to service is rock the bike with the front brake on to check head bearing...it's a safety check and you should have been made aware it was slack, if they didn't spot it change to another garage in the future.

  • yeah i know but this came bout 2 weeks later after the service when it went in for mot. They said baring will need changing. But this week i noticed i can undo the the nut with my fingers not good! Will simply torquing it up solve the problem? Its never been to any other garage but honda.

  • The issue for those riding the Rhonda Treks in Melbourne (37 starters) last event is the OE engine rule. Also these rules are applied to the Postie bike start at Honda Broadford big bonaza this year, my entry already in.

  • The Rhonda Trek started 3 years ago with 14 riders and the 2013 event is going to be limited to 45 entries, they are (ccjmc) running a Great Ocean rd ride to Port Fairy in Feb 2013, but this is social event only with prizes for silliness.

  • "honda" man is local guy been building "hondas" for 37 years.. worked for the local atv dealership for 36 years.. he's the best I know of..

  • Carbs are trial and error. Try that, test it out, then diagnose the problems and adjust needle, idle screw, and jetting from there. 3ww has a great jetting and carb tuning guide.

  • Yeah, it's pretty simple to tune them when you get the jetting right, I've up until now always ran stock machines, so jetting wasn't really an issue, just the tune, which is pretty simple. I tune by ear, throttle response, and the burn on the plug.. the plug will tell you if it's burning to rich or lean.. It's still a pain in the ass every now and again..

Hi guys really want to put high level cans on my firestorm and wondered if the SP1 cans and link pipes fit, any mods that are needed i.e. shorter rear pegs etc, hopefully someone can help? cheers, Taffy.

  • I have SP! Microns and link pipes for sale, but I'm fairly sure the link pipes are a different diameter.......

  • the pipes have rear mounting captive nuts , so no straps required, but you will have top make brackets....

  • No, thinking again, the link pipes and cans fit together perfect. PM me if you are interested.

  • I'm about the same size as Brian and I really enjoy my 1100 aero, even after going to the dark side and purchasing a HD Ultra Classic, I kept my aero and still feel more comfortable on it than the HD, it handles better, rides better, and feels more balanced to me, but then again I have put a lot of mile on it and probably just a wee bit biased!

  • Lol...right on i hear ya...yea im go 1100 it makes more sense to me...i need that extra from it im 5'9 240lbs...so ill need it especially with a passenger.... "the dark side" lmao

  • Good stuff. I'm from Newcastle, and only recently rode my postie to melbourne to visit a mate for a week. was a long ride, but throughly enjoyed it. Anyhow i am trying to meet up with someone in my local area who i can go riding with. Does anyone know of any postie clubs up this way or something simular? i love these bikes, and never plan on selling this little beast even if i do eventually get a larger bike (notice how i didn't say upgrade).........lol

  • The trek is a road ride covering about 300k for the day with lunch and dinner stop at a pub, many entrants stayed the night last year.

Wow, had a scare today... went out to start the wheeler and go for a ride and it wouldn't start, ended up ripping the tank off, the carb off, ect... everything checked out.. I knew hte carb being fully new/rebuilt was fine but figured I'd check, turns out it was a bad coil, and thankfully I had a spare one... wow, really woke the ole girl up with the new coil, and plug... but on a serious note, they should have made these electric start... holy cow done hurt my self again kicked back so hard it put a huge bruise on the bottom of my foot, through my boots.. yeah that's when you know you've got proper comp.

  • I'm not trying to be rude, but why $2300? All OEM 350's I've seen, go for about $2500

  • but mine isn't all OEM... and regardless of what they can go for, what I have in it is what I want out of it... 2,500 is what I'd like to see, if I finish everythign 3,500... as it is now, I'd take 2,300 I'm more interested in seeing someone use it, and enjoy it, than I am with the money..

Here's a question, I know stock HP on a 350x was like 27HP, how can you guess as to what the power output is with the mods you have? I'm trying to figure it out and also trying to figure out what I can add to push a little more power out of it, here's the list...

Bored to 81.5mm

wisco 12-1,

white bros cam,

upgraded valve train,

older cobra pipe,

stock carb jetted,

that's about it as far as power upgrades thus far,

minus fully rebuilt crank all new bearings seals ect..

what else can I add to this to bring out even more power?

THANKS!!

  • yeah, fix that and it will start like a 250... Where I live no one comes onto the property after dark, it's not good for their health to get caught here after dark.. A few people learned that the hard way, 1969 vette sits under carport, keys in it, no big deal.. garage open tools unlocked no worries.. love it..

  • the decompression cable does have a tolerance of play... get it wirhin adjustment range and "yes" it works

  • Yeah I know how to paint. My uncle has a shop. But I was just not to sure how well paint will hold up. I would think just my boot would scratch it.

  • No paint here.

  • I'll let you know if it holds up so far it's okay, I did screw up the paint putting the rear plastics back on but that was my fault... I have a new set of plastics for it, but haven't put them on yet so if it doesn't hold up I have a back up plan.. I think a good outdoor paint meant for plastics would hold up pretty well I'm trying to think of the name of the stuff we used to use, a little pricey but works well...

  • where did you get it from? and, were there different colors??

  • An individual had this one. I have a line on a couple of other ones, well, know of another fairing for sure, and was told of yet another. I just responded to craigslist ad about old bikes, and asked if they might have an old fairing. color is gonna be hit or miss on these old things.

  • thanks for asking them! my bike is more likely a Burgundy color and trying to find such thing fits that color!

  • If I hear of one that color, will let you know, but you are prolly gonna have to paint whatever you get,, these were made in the 70's

  • understood, thanks!!!
