  1. you are right with gas tank clearance and i have no idea as what swingarm would work on your yz. My swingarm is a 1978 or 79 pe suzuki. might work on yours who knows. You would need some shock mounts modded on your frame. some late 70's early 80's forks should work with gas take mods or different tank. Not an easy job.--Good luck--------
  2. I had one new in 1980. Had a white brothers pipe on it which of course is not avl anymore. Go to a muffler shop and see if they can bend you up a piece.
  3. Also remember in Ca on a plated bike if your insurance laps DMV will pull your plate. not physical but illegal if an leo runs your plate. dmv did this to me on a truck i saw restoring. Had to non-op it. It's all about the $$$. I had a 07 DR650 plate was around $80 something and insurance was around $100. Not cheap as a green sticker at $50 for 2 yrs. I live out in the county with a fire house a mile away and they charge me $130 a yr for fire protection even though it in my tax base. It will never end in Ca. too many people.
  4. How about an old tt500 1976? before stickers? Or an 70 BSA 500? just wondering?
  5. I thought you might chime in as i saw a few of your newer post. I mocked it up years ago. another pic of a different set-up. have some more frame work to do. master-cyl bracket and some other small stuff. sold my tt600 and my Berg.
  6. Well i haven't been on here in a long time sense mt tt600 build. This is the last bike to build. I bought this tt500 from member 1976tt500 back in 2010. Ryan is now racing trophy trucks, haven't seen him or talked to him sense. Back to the tt. He had all kinds of problems with it. So dummy me i bought it and it's been sitting for years. I'm getting up in my years i decided I'd better finish it. It's going to be built like my tt600 with suzuki wheels and showa forks and a pe swingarm. a couple of pics of bike and doing engine now. I had a set of good used cases and barrel so i switched the old to the new cases. barrel was standard bore and just needed honing. New wisco 10-1 piston. have a white bros or web cam, just says wb on it. Head is in the shop getting a valve job. Just finished restoring my 1961 k10 truck, now it's the bikes turn. will be up dating as work progresses.
  7. I say BS. the cold spot was here before you showed up.
  8. BB you named the cold spot--really.
  9. do a search here for tt600. alot of good info.
  10. Looks good. What's the price? Doing one myself.
  11. I would go to 12v for the street. search here for tt600 some nice builds
  12. not 85 and eailer.
  13. i guess i shuld say it's been slod.
  14. I have it in my 2k Z71 (10-30) took it to get smoged and rad flushed and they ck everything. When i went to pick it up they said somebody put automatic trans fluid in my eng! Had a good lol with that statment. the valves could be a little loose? ck the cam card for specs, don't remember if they are the same as stock. I ran 20-50 red line back in 83 in my tt600. And an old racer (Dick Mann) told me when i had him do a valve job on my 76 TT500. I asked him what oil to use, he just laughed and said, use any you like but change it after every ride. Of course i never did. That was a long time ago. One of the best motercycle racers of all time. I did change the oil in my 501 Husaberg after every ride, but it only held just shy of 1 QT. Ran deisel oil in it 15-40
