This may be a stupid question, but... 25 May 2007 11:08

Rebuilding koni motorcycle shocks
Hello, I put some old steel-bodied winged logo Koni shocks that I got at a swap meet on my Norton Commando. They were a big improvement on my worn out NJB's, but they're still a bit mushy I'm thinking they could use a change in oil. Good news is that they don't appear to leak at all. I asked someone at IKON... 24 Mar 2007 15:49
Yamaha XS400, Mikuni BS34: What's this hole in my carb?
> Suggest you do some searching on the Mikuni USA website. There's a .pdf manual there for their normal carbs, may also be one for CVs. I did find, but I don't know enough about carbs to tell which kinds are CV or what. I also found 26 Mar 2007 22:20

Wheel sizes
I have a 1983 GS650GLD with 19" front wheel and 16" rear wheel. Picked up some spare parts from a 1982 GS650G and for some reason it uses same front wheel but its rear is 17" Is there any advantage/disadvantage of putting the bigger rear on mine? Presumably the weight difference is minimal, the distance travell... 8 Oct 2006 00:25
