650 Twin - Interceptor/GT / Re: Definitely NOT a relay
« Last Post by JessHerbst on Today at 02:37:17 pm »
In no particular order:

I have a center stand but didn't use it to fill the tank. I've also never compared 'full on center stand' to 'full on side stand.
Opposite here, always use center stand to fill up, never used or compared side stand.
 Honestly, I am little paranoid about the side stand, only use it briefly when dismounting to hold bike until I get it on center stand. I just don't trust it for more than a few minutes and never unattended.

650 Twin - Interceptor/GT / Re: My Mods are almost complete.

and the looks.
Beautiful bike man. Nice job. I have just installed the same luggage racks and I am very happy with them. I think next will be the same YSS set you have. I love the bike but every time I go over a bump I feel every bone in my body.
I think those shocks are height adjustable. Did you extend them?

Yeah don't hear many complaints from India ,lots of new vehicles have a couple of teething problems...
these new 350s are way ahead of the previous 350 and 500s  just going from my research.....I put off buying one of the earlier models for 16 years because of the finish and vibration  ect..i loved the look of them so when the Reborn arrived in Australia I was one of the first at the bike shop ...mine has been great..just love the feel of it ...sort of a refined old style feel...with a lovely standard  exhaust crackle ...not loud  or impressive to the bystanders but sounds good to me when i am riding it....ride it every day since I got it in April...live in the country so lots of back roads and a 50klm ride to some beautiful waterfalls ..and cafe in the mountains.....My brother said just today that it sounds like it will last forever..hope he's right ;) BTW he owns a Harley :P

650 Twin - Interceptor/GT / Re: High engine guards?
« Last Post by NVDucati on Today at 01:51:31 pm »
I just walked out to look at my bike. I have the tall engine guards from Hitchcocks. I don't have the TEC 2-1 exhaust.
Stating the obvious, I would modify the guard and leave the exhaust header alone.
Pretty simple really. I would remove the section of the guard's horizontal cross bar that is in conflict with the header.
Replace that section with a split "surround" piece. Obviously, it gets welded in.
Here is the good news, that surround piece is a readily available big end of a connecting rod from a 350 Chevy V8.
Cut to fit.

I think you can see the path. snip, snip - buzz, buzz. I have several that were given to me by a local hot rod shop. The big end will fit around the header and installation is "bolt simple". If a SF Bay Area member wants to pick one up PM me.

650 Twin - Interceptor/GT / Re: Bike lock
« Last Post by Ton1959 on Today at 12:36:07 pm »
You can get a backpack for them, now. Handy for putting your gloves, scarf etc. when the lock is in use.
the lock in the pack is about 360mm (14") in diameter and weights 2.9kg (6.4lb).

Nice but not for me. Nothing on my back when I am riding. If I ever do fall off it which might not happen that lock will do more harm to my bad back.

put my bike boots on and it appears to be fine.
they've most of moved it up a notch.
went to start the bike up. bleeding battery is flat.
what do these mechanics do on these bikes.
leave the light on while servicing. ??????
what a shore just getting the battery out ,everything is just wedged in.
put some cables in so that I don't have to take the battery out to charge it,

350 Meteor/Classic Reborn / Re: 1st service.

There are definitely some copies of the Meteor that have problems with the gearbox. And it's not because of the shoes or the feet.
I, for example, have been riding two-wheelers of all kinds for 56 years.
And believe me, I know how to change gears. With or without paddle shifters
