Turning Wrenches / Central Tools timing gauge question
« on: November 27, 2021, 08:42:59 PM »
I'm looking at the Central Tools 6491 timing gauge set as sold by Economy; is it the diameter of the dial itself that allows it to be used on an RD engine that is in the frame?

eBay/Craigslist watch / RD350 Chambers on eBay

Not mine:

What are these? Spent a bunch of time in the identification thread and still think maybe Bassani? I'm not looking to buy 'em, just want to know what they are.

Turning Wrenches / Source for this goofy O-ring?
« on: November 12, 2021, 12:46:34 AM »
I put the RD350 bottom end together (6 speeds present and everything turns freely and smoothly) and found my right side crankshaft O-ring 360-11526-00-00, the goofy one:

is crap. Economy is out of stock, CMS has a reproduction in the Netherlands and there are a few on eBay for $60-70. Couldn't find it at any retail site, HVC or FFTP. Anybody know of a better source than I've found?

But of course you did. Everyone knew but me...again. Norbo has parts for air-cooled RDs! Not a lot, but good-lookin' stuff:

Just got the email: Use sale code "scaryscooter" to get 15% off your order total!

Time to grab an HPI ignition or some other goodies. What a crazy cool site.

Does anyone have experience with or knowledge of these pipes?

I'm trying to find information, but there doesn't seem to be much out there.

My son wants to shoot a deer. I’m from a hunting family, but not one myself, so I’m here for technical and moral support. Sure is pretty!(Eastern Washington, near Pullman and the Snake River)

I love these pictures! None of them are me/mine and you may recognize yourself or your bike:[/img]

I wish I knew how to resize this one

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?
