A friend sent this to me, and I think it's a great message. Applies to life, really, not just bikes.

Turning Wrenches / Tarozzi offset clip-ons
« on: September 11, 2021, 09:26:28 PM »
Short story long: I want to put a fat bar on my RD like Ed has on his R5, but the GSX-R upper clamp is super thin where I'd need to drill holes for risers, so I'm looking at clip-ons like a dumb 20-something (apologies, dumb 20-somethings out there). Fast from the Past has these offset Tarozzis that I kinda like better than their "riser" options:

Do any of you fine folks have experience with such a thing, or have a better solution? I guess I should say that super low 'bars aren't as kind to me as they once were, hence the fat bar idea.

Turning Wrenches / Starter motor repair
« on: September 03, 2021, 09:07:28 AM »
This almost belongs in the 4-stroke blasphemy section, but a friend needs to get his starter motor repaired or replaced:

Goki aftermarket starter on an ATC350X. Having owned and kick started an XR350R as a much younger man, I can appreciate what this little motor was up against! Does anyone know where I can send him for help with this conundrum?

Turning Wrenches / Calling all machinists, professional & amateur HELP!
« on: September 02, 2021, 10:06:45 AM »
I have one of these silly things:

And I need to bore a 15mm hole in aluminum, but I don't have a chuck for the tailstock, like this:

High school machine shop was quite a while ago, so I need a little help here. The tailstock is a Morse 0 taper, which I find to be tiny. Am I going to be able to find a chuck capable of holding a 15mm drill with a 0 taper, and if such a thing exists, where should I look?

Turning Wrenches / Seats
« on: August 17, 2021, 01:44:32 AM »
I'm looking at seats and I like the Texavina, HVC and these guys:

I like the foam & cover kit idea, but $45 seems steep for shipping. Anybody have experience with any of theses or recommend something similar?

Turning Wrenches / GPS Speedos (not swimwear)
« on: July 25, 2021, 11:26:09 PM »
 Are the cheap GPS speedos worth messing with? I really like a $300 unit from speedhut, but I have three projects in the works. As much as I would like to send the fine folks at speedhut a Grover, the $60 jobbies have my attention. Beyond "cheap stuff ain't good, and good stuff ain't cheap", any experience out there?

Someone needs a single-sided swingarm project! This thing is only $75! Not mine.
