  1. Rgv VJ21

    I had to do the same on my VJ23.... getting the bearings out of the swingarm was not fun....
  2. Rgv 300sp

    Those clutches are getting harder to pay for as all stroker prices have gone through the roof. Is it just the dry clutch with close ratio trans, or do you have the straight plug SP heads and cylinders too. I need to get back out in the shed and swap out the old powervalves in my VJ22FL for a better set out of a RS250... I love my RGV's, good luck with your project
  3. VJ23 in a box

    Was getting a bit bored sitting in the warm house, and decided to get out in the garage and do a bit of final work on the RGV,...... before spring gets here and my bike is still unfinished. Time to do the last bits of unrestricting, since I now have all the parts to do it properly. The bike's speedometer runs off the counter sprocket, so that means if I change the 46 tooth gearing the restricted 180 speedo will be off. Luckily there were 357 unrestricted VJ23V models built which had 240 speedo's....and matching 42 tooth sprockets. Needless to say it took a while to locate a speedo....

    Last ride of the year.....this time a little less artistic, but more 2 stroke noise....

    No vid with just bike sound.... This vid was just an experiment with my go pro to figure out how to do them. The sound of the bike was muffled by all the wind blowing past... I'll do a dyno run hopefully before Christmas and that will be only the bike making noise...

    My first ever Utube attempt.....
  8. Gs1000 shocks

    I got these 1994 GSX1100S piggyback shocks from Yahoo Japan for under $100 I think.....although shipping was far from cheap. Look here at whats available today....Ohlins are a bit more affordable here.... If you can find a seller who will ship to you. https://auctions.yahoo.co.jp/search/search?p=gsx1100s&ei=UTF-8&auccat=2084284072&slider=0&tab_ex=commerce&istatus=2

    The winner of the auction at my estate sale will get to make that choice....
  10. VJ23 in a box

    Getting to be time to settle in for another 4 months of cold weather..... I got the VJ23 to run Ok, and it screams up at the top.....but midrange needs some dyno time yet for enjoyable all around usefulness. Problem is finding a person who will dyno a stroker around here. They will do V-twins no problem....but only if they have pushrods... Hibernation mode....

    Yea....we got standard carbs Racing rules allowed carb changes here, and most people ended up swapping CV's for 33 smoothbores
  12. 78 GS1000 Left for Dead

    I sold my GT750 a month ago, and felt sad when I saw it leave in the back of the pickup.... But I sold it for a good cause...(RG500) As I looked around in the garage, my neglected GS1000SZ looked like it should go somewhere where it could be used more as well. So I figured I would wash it (first time with a power washer in about 15 years) and get it running again. After getting it all clean and took it out for a 10 mile ride about.... I had to park it and really think if I wanted to really say goodbye to it.... It runs too good, and really needs nothing...I realized I could probably never sell my high school dream bike. (I graduated in 1981)...I've owned it since 1986, so no point in saying goodbye....its lasted longer than any relationship/job/residence.... ...but it at least it's clean now....

    They are sitting next to Suzuki's... Which would burn them too.... I'll just try to avoid fire all together and try to keep only the Suzuki's in focus next time.
  14. VJ23 in a box

    All moved in and getting back to work on some bikes. I sold the GT750J and it should be in the UK/Devon in a week or so in a container with a couple other Suzuki's. Needed the $$$ to finance a RG/RZV500 I no longer want to live without.... So I got back to work on the Zeel ignition for my VJ23....what a bitch this was to get all soldered up to the plugs, but it's done and hooked up....And the bike still runs Now for the confusing part....getting it to run perfectly with the computer.... I had a pic of my garage setup and ready with my bikes....but I figured since there were non Suzuki's in it....it would not last long on this thread
  15. 72 GT750 project

    The purple GT was sold today..... Heading to Devon in the UK in a container with a few other bikes......kinda sad......felt a bit heart broken actually. But I kept the GT frame on the table and the spare engine... So it might still be built up as a runner this year.
