Any idea how much it's really worth?  It looks like a fun bike!

Turning Wrenches / stuck pistons
« on: May 29, 2022, 07:44:08 PM »
I am breaking down a Daytona engine that sat for two plus decades.   Apparently moisture got into the cylinders.  The top of the pistons are visibly rusted.  it looks like the rust is just at the top where the rings are located.

Any ideas on how to free the pistons?

Thanks

eBay/Craigslist watch / RZ500

Not mine.

It is all about timing.  I have been to Havasu four times this past year.  Going to be near there again in July.   Never the right time.

Doesn't look to bad at all.

General Chatter / Rotor puller recommendations
« on: April 23, 2022, 07:01:25 PM »
I was hoping someone could recommend a good rotor puller for a daytona.

 I tried the uppermost engine mounting bolt with an impact with no success.  I am afraid I my mess something up if I keep trying with the engine mounting bolt.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

General Chatter / brake caliper adapters
« on: October 25, 2021, 09:31:46 PM »
Anyone know what vendors might sale brake caliper adapters for R1 blue spot calipers. 

It is for a 1985 rz with stock rotors.  I was told that TDR racing had them.  I checked their website with no luck.

Thanks,
Russ

eBay/Craigslist watch / 1977 RD400 (or is it a 1976)?

Not mine.  It is pretty rare to see an RD for sell on Oahu. 

I wish there were more pictures.  Should of removed the one mirror before taking pics.

Hey HawaiiMike, Diablo007, do you know the owner?  (small island)

I am guessing some of you saw this already.

eBay/Craigslist watch / 78 RD

I wonder how many miles were on the old odometer?  Doesn't mention a bottom or top end rebuild.  :umm:

That is one way to reduce the miles on a motor (new speedo/odometer).

eBay/Craigslist watch / RZ

Not mine.

https://sfbay.craigslist.org/pen/mcy/d/millbrae-yamaha-rz-350/7262921361.html

I wonder how that bike would handle?  Do not care for the headlight.  Just doesn't look right to me.

General Chatter / paint color information/suggestions?
« on: October 05, 2020, 01:56:54 PM »
I have a 1984 rz350.  Garrett has the engine so I am going to take some time and clean the rest up.

I was wondering if anyone knew the color of black (gloss, satin, low gloss) for black parts (kick stand, center stand, handle bars, horns, triple clamp, etc.)?  Even the rims are aluminum with black trim.  Not the red or gold trim that I have seen. 

I am also going to touch up the frame a little.  Based on my research that color is Fire Red. 

Lastly, I wanted to repaint the swing arm.  Can anyone suggest the silver color to use? 

Thanks

General Chatter / Gasket Sets
« on: September 17, 2020, 05:10:49 PM »
So I have several complete gaskets sets for my rd's and one for my rz that I recently found.  They are still sealed, but are at least 10-15 years old. 

I was wondering if they are still good.  They look fine.  It is just the age I am concerned with.

Thanks,

Russ

This bike is not mine.  Pretty clean bike.  For me, I would go with another seat.
