So i have a EK chain 219h x 94
It was in the parts bin.
part number crosses to a 750

My question is
Is this the cam chain that i want to use or is there a better one out there?
Im just looking for something strong that will take a beating and not be a risk to the motor.
Is this good? or do i want a different chain? OEM?
thanks for the help

First I have another rotor question.
is the "lower" rotor a 550 rotor? Think i got shipped the wrong rotor...



OK now for fun parts!
Stainless hand made yoshi rep pipe. Last one from them for a while. got a great deal on it.
Its super light






Also got a deal on some OEM grips. not sure if ill run them on this bike but its nice to have.

Emailed M3 to get more information about their slipper tensioner and to see about running one on the street. also to ask why the chain that they list is twice the price as ones listed other places and use the same pic. not really to beat them up but to be a more informed customer. im more then willing to spend some money on better parts.

Still reading and thinking about what pistons to run.
Some very cool information here
http://www.satanicmechanic.org/bigbore.shtml
really like the idea of the CBX1000 pistons.
Anyone have more info on this swap? I like the idea of using OEM pistons as for some reason i believe that a cast OEM piston is some how better then the "aftermarket" cast ones? Am i kidding myself?
Not to keen on the 900F pistons as i dont want to be limited to the stock cam.
What would the CR be with the CBX pistons? doesnt read like there would be cam issues.

Well it looks like I now have some motor parts to use for this build....
I fell upon this motor that turned out to be filled with fun vintage go fast parts.



Thats a yoshi 811cc kit!




Not really sure about the car, would love to find out the specs. Heard that it might be a megacycle cam?


This doesnt look stock....


"pork chop" crank?


Polished RSC rods!

Still trying to find out more info on the parts.
Hope to start building very soon.

Well I really need to start thinking about buying carbs.
So what are my options?
vintage smoothbores?
modern CRs?
how are those RSs working out for people?

Not really sure what the right set up should be for this yoshi motor. I like the idea of a more vintage carbs but do want the motor to actually work....
so what do you guys think?

No one with opinions on carbs?
I might have a line on a set of used CR31s but they might be to big....
Why are all of the CR29s out of stock?
I would rather not spend $750 on carbs but if thats what i need to at this point then so be it.






Found this. Dont really know much about it other then its cheap and incomplete.....
Anyone have some info?



Bought the right tool for the job.


New Bronze bushings.
Still VERY much on the hunt for a dresda swingarm....


Had to try this stuff and just after a quick use i have to say it works great


Also bought an engine stand to make things easy to work on.
I made one a while ago but now i dont have a welder....really need to just get a cheap one.....
Anyway its wasnt that much money and it fits/works perfectly
TAS choppers makes them

The other parts came from CB750supply.com and i have to say they are great to work with. SUPER fast shipping

Fair bit longer.
I might just run it in the "stock" position and keep a spare chain, sprocket for the full drag lenght.










So the "mag" came in.
not really sure what to do know.....

Hey, thanks for the posts and pics! Just curious... what method(s) did you use to polish chrome and aluminum parts? I'm pretty sure i'm going to soda-blast some of the parts, but what about rusty chrome. The front fender looks phenomenal!!

Well life has been getting in the way and not much has been done with this bike.
Still waiting on some parts..
the motor pipe and some other bits are going to be used on a different bike and a mild motor will go in this bike first.
kinda thinking street/strip

new goal is rolling in the next two weeks with a GL front end
need to get the frame re braced as im not all that happy with how it came out

Well it kinda rolls!






Not 100% sure what it is but it fits perfect, its light and really cool.
I think it works well with the drag swing arm.

Picked the CBX up this fall. 6K miles, SS supertrapp pipes. very good shape. paid almost nothing for it....like really nothing...
going through the carbs right now, has a leaky valve and im debating on pulling the head or just letting it cycle while running a bit

Ribbed covers are a bit pricey......

Guy that makes them is great and makes a great product.
