    NEW PROJECT BIKE

    Not familiar with “the MX Tech ‘lucky’ version of the shock kit thing”. What included with that?

    NEW PROJECT BIKE

    Sweet build!! I went with Brian at N2D myself. Dal Soggio spheres, shock revalve(with MX Tech Tank), and linkage knuckle. Haven't tried em yet...been out on injured reserve. When you say "MX Tech shock", is that the infamous National Shock? Any updated pics?

    Any update on how you like your suspension from Kreft? I am considering them myself

    1984 Honda XL80S - Restoration Project

    Thanks. Those are the original real shocks. They were not too beat up but still had to give them some attention. WD40 and steel wool to get the rust off the chrome and spring. Then took a little paint brush to paint the springs black. Very time consuming but worth it.

    1984 Honda XL80S - Restoration Project

    Been super busy lately so it took me a while to get it to paint. Just got everything back from the painter(Monza Red) and I'm very pleased with the results. Gonna start putting her back together this weekend. Also, I painted the clutch cover and the stator cover with this Rustoleum Painters Touch Metallic Aluminum. It's not high temp but I think it'll hold up ok. Included a few pics

    I am currently restoring my 1982 XL80. Unfortunately I can not intelligently speak on your voltage question but I know for sure that the bike was painted(not powder coated). Mine is getting painted now and still have to put her back together. I'll be able to share a pic in a month or so. Good luck Accentrix

    I have a 1982 XL80 and my carb is leaking from the float bowl gasket. Can't find a rebuild kit for this carb anywhere and the gasket is, of course, obsolete. Does anyone know if a float bowl gasket from a 1982 XR80 will work on y XL80? Any advise is appreciated.
  14. I just had my forks and shock revalved. It says on the fork label that the rebound is set at 26. How much adjustment do I have?
  15. Hey Andrew34, did you ride his Ohlins set up as well?
