Any IT-465 owners here?

Recommended Posts

I have a chance to get an '82 IT-465 for a pretty decent price but I don't know much about them or if they're just a pain in the butt to own.  It's not a trailer queen so it will take a little work to make it a runner.  Should I avoid it or go for it?

I was too slow thinking about it.  Gone already.  It must have been a pretty good deal to go that quick - like 1 day.  They were asking $600 and I figured this time of year I could get it down pretty close to $500.

Ha! Guess I spelled it wrong! This has been a great bike, really. My friend found it in very new condition, and there were a couple issues at first. It broke Kickstart return springs, until the kicker shaftsbury hole that the spring goes in was radiused a bit. (Spelled wrong?) Also, the float valve in the carb was bad, but a "Grouse jet"- a ball bearing type float valve cured the overflowing and consequent bottom end filling with gas. Really no issues after that!
