Got my Red Black 500 back running. Finished fitting the carbs today, cut the throttle cables. The left ones were just too long. finished up the wiring, added coolant. All new fuel lines. Added fuel and fired her up. It’s been a year since I fried it. Sounds class
Yes unfortunately they are all mine 1 4l0 late already built 1 4l0 early still to finish bits n bobs a 4l1 bottom with late 4l0 barrels a 4l1 bottom with fahron topend a 4l1 with fast road tuned topend and a std 250 and a ypvs there are worse things to waste your money on . Started building an lc yesterday its surprising how far you can get when you have most parts ready to go on. I find its easier to build engines in series as you dont miss anything out along the way got another 2 bikes to start very soon and 5 10v dt125lc,s after that .
Well not my bike but I repaired the threads with 10mm Timeserts on the lower crankcases of a RD350LC that someone had kindly stripped while restoring and then sold to my mate along with a million and one other things to put right. I think the seller has a 3 pointed hat and a mask, described 90% done? £500 and counting on the last 10%
Fitted renthall super bike bars instead of the micron ace bars, and the pro am fairing bracket, had to re route the clutch cable and brake line looks better got to paint the fairing to match the bike then got to run it in before it goes to daves for a pair of one off pipes.
4L0's eating pistons since the 80's-Dont be nicking my paint scheme.
