    I've probably mentioned this before but one thing to be mindful of is the brake lever, especially if its an aftermarket one. I've seen some poorly made ones that wouldn't allow the m/c's piston to...

    Japanese bikes from the 70s and 80s can be very reliable every-day rides even these days. However there are exceptions and they are usually the low-production 'novelties' that some manufacturers...

    IMO it came out really nice and the cocktail shakers almost seem like they needed to be on the bike... nothing else would have looked as good.

    If it was running right for two years then I wouldn't bother with rejetting the carb, your issue wouldn't be a sudden need to readjust the air/fuel mix. What ignition are you running and does it use...

    I may have pix in about a month or so when I take it on an autumn tour but right now it's at my other place +600 miles away.

    I've experienced excessive out-of-balance issues from time to time with steel rimmed wheels and inexpensive tubes and tires. Sometimes it's just a rare case of a single tube or tire slipping past...

    Not sure about their '04-up (rubber-mount) hardtails but I have one on my 2000 rigid and it's stout and well made. If you want to retain the belt drive you have to be downright perfect in aligning...

    I remember the Cavalcade back when it was new... quite the performer and a nice V4 motor that for the time was considered 'huge' and bikes like it were called 'full dressers'. At the same time Suzuki...

    Gotcha. Concerning the sprocket cover, I wish I could answer that question for you but I no longer have my rubber-mount so I can't compare it's cover vs my rigid mount Sporties... sorry man.

    IMO it depends on how 'ape' you want to go. I can rock clip-ons or apes just as long as they're not over my head or below my pelvis even as an arthritic old fart so really it all boils down to...

    I've seen this with several aftermarket levers. In some cases there were casting flashes on the lever that wouldn't allow the piston to return back to normal, in others the nub of the lever that...

    It may seem ludicrous/funny but you're right. A bike with a longer wheelbase and lower center of gravity will resist lifting the rear during hard braking better than the typical sportbike and because...

    If you enjoy the GZ250 the way it is then I'd keep it that way and get another one to customize into a hardtail... there's no reason to stick with just one type of bike if you don't have to. Despite...
