  1. Auspanol, is that 8-spoke definitely off a 3rd gen? My 8-spoker mating surface looks slightly different that the one you showed . I don't know what year mine came off of (bought it second hand of course). Think there were different castings for different years?
  2. Thanks for posting this. I was born and bred in Kansas and I'd never even heard of these rocks. Very cool. Every summer we'd take a trip to the San Juan Mtns and my dad never stopped for anything. (Except for maybe Nickerson Farms) WTH?
  3. I'm a little confused about the PCV bleed. I changed all my bleed valves out to speed bleeders and just want to make sure I didn't introduce any air in the lines in the process. Not clear to me whether I should pump the secondary master cylinder or the rear pedal to bleed air out the PCV. The secondary master cylinder pumping doesn't feel very positive. Did I screw it up if I did both?
  4. I know I'm a little late to the party here but... Just throwing my $.02 in. Made a spacer and shims so I could "quickly" check out the 929 shock. Thinking of a Daugherty Motorsports makeover if I come to really like it. Really like zach571's design and syjang40's solid billet mount too. First impressions: Much more taut. Much more stable in mid-turn bumps. Need to dial in the comp and rebound. I added a little ride height (10mm). I like the effects of that. I think I spent as long trying to carefully trim the battery box around the reservoir as making the spacer. btw if anyone can
  5. Okay, I bit. Here's my report: Overall, good value. I'm satisfied. I got them because its always bugged me that I can't rotate the brake lever assembly forward any more than I can. (The MC interferes with the clip-on riser.) So I thought being able to move the lever a little closer to the grip might help the wrist fatigue a little. So far, so good. There are a few details to criticize though. 1) Though the overall machining is very good, they leave the fasteners pretty loose at the factory. This gives them more slop in the (several) moving parts than optimal. However if you try to s
  6. Very cool project. I just started reading this thread tonight. Got through 4 or 5 pages and finally had to skip to the "end". Really gets me reminiscing about my old '83. After close to 90 k great miles, I finally gave it to a friend who is "going to restore it someday". By the way, I'm curious. I was the third owner. PPO did all the mods. I always assumed the RWB was factory but I only see other '83s with RWR or BWB. Was RWB an option in 1983? I notice that the '84s seem to all be RWB. Also I was told this was a Basani exhaust. Anyone else know for sure? Great memories. Great re
