Anyone have a pdf on the Dave F mod?  The link on Economy Cycle's site is dead and I can't seem to find them via a Google search.

I fixed that link and here's some additional instructions / Pictures

RD250/350 is 92L
RD400 is 96L

520/530 are same length only width is different. 400 swinger is 1" longer.

I got a set of the black handle ones that has a #1, #2, and #3 tip. It saved my butt so many times. Thank goodness for vessel :)

Thanks, noted. We'll get some with the next restock.

The ones we stock are regular length, but if you know what you want we're a Vessel dealer and they have a US warehouse so should be easy to get anything they have now.

the big one with the impact hande is the shit, mine gets used almost constantly.

i have a long shank #1 and 2, like really long for carb syncing and carb boots as well. (hozan i think) but i need to get some new regular ones for spares. I'll be sending an order soon john.


Yup it's a go to tool for me, pretty much replaced my impact driver for all but the toughest stuff.

We just started stocking Vessell JIS tools. Made in Japan

The shank through IMPACT type are great for our bikes and makes quick work of those stubborn fasteners without beating them up.

Turning Wrenches / Re: Right cylinder running lean

I swapped carbs side to side and it followed the carb. So definitely a carb issue not sure which carb now if one is lean or the other is rich. I have had them apart several times soaking in carb cleaner and new mikuni jets. Drilled the brass balls out and plugged with set screws a couple threads. Going to go back thru them again.

did you ream the airjet after you took the ball out? You should be able to see the end of the reamer/wire if you look up through the jet tube, that way you know you've cleared it.

did you clear your airjet, gets missed all the time on the 400's.

Thank Teazer.

The RD400 rears have a cut out for the disk carrier and no flange fitting. All the fronts were the same, except 1978 they eliminated the recess for the decal (and rear in 78 also). If you put a front caliper on the rear of the 400 the carrier will contact the caliper body and jam. Otherwise they're functionally the same.

Looks good, that's one of the older riveted drums with the square triggers that can cause the engine to start in the wrong direction, and those rivets were known to loosen up over time. They changed the drums several years ago to a one piece cnc drum with ramped triggers.

Turning Wrenches / Re: VM30's on an R5, throttle options?
« on: August 09, 2020, 02:04:11 PM »
I've run into a snag on my racebike prep, hoping the brain trust can :help:

I'm switching to a ported R5 top end and VM30's (large frame type) and I realized last night that the stock throttle setup doesn't seem to have the needed adjustment/travel to pull these carbs. I'm going to disassemble the junction block today and see if I can get more travel.

Can the stock R5 throttle setup work with these carbs? If not, I'll need to convince John to 2-day ship one of these   :dawg:

I do have a cable that will work with the stock throttle with or without the pump, not on the website, just give us a call.

Economy Cycle / B7HS NGK Spark Plugs - Lot of 40

One of our Ebay auctions, maybe someone here is interested.

I would just like to echo all the positive comments about John and Economy Cycle.

A few months ago John was kind enough to  leave a lengthy message on my phone recorder about my issues of no spark with my RZ ( yes, I still have a phone recorder). 

His message of information was presented clear and simple for even a novice like me.

Thank you John.

You're welcome and thanks for posting these comments, very much appreciated.
