Okay thanks for the confirmation. What type of seals are they brass? I think I'll try the additive for now as it's not really burning any oil. (Sometimes it does use a little but that depends on how...

79' Special smokes out of left exhaust....badly

My wife noticed this the day I picked it up long ago but it went away. Fairly certain it's oil smoke. Only does it if it sits for longer than a couple of days. Could it be a worn valve guide letting...

Good luck finding one....

Had my SF for about 5 years and still no grab bar. Trouble is they're extremely rare species and may spook and run if spotted. If you do find one, the seller is aware of their rareness and wants $300...

Ready to dive in....

After getting my bike back from a friend's winter garage storage I've decided to hell with it, I'm gonna try getting my second gear fixed. I've put it off ever since I bought it almost 3 years ago...

Okay. Since there's no difference I see no point in messing with the octy. What's the purpose of the two screws above each fuel port? Instead of having to replace caps for the prime port I'll never...

Wow them are some purdy carbs! Cleaned mine last year-but since I have no filters and the gas leaked out I think my enrichment ports are blocked since I have to give some throttle when I start up.

I'm pretty sure it's the stock exhaust. Looking at it this afternoon I noticed the inside pipes have clamps connecting to the 'adapter' or 2 into 1 piece while the outside pipes are welded. I'm not...

I need replacement mufflers-any out there?

When I bought my '79 Special, I noticed patches on both mufflers. I've been fine for the last 2 years but now I have a new hole on the bottom left side. They're pretty thin and looking like crap so I...

I know, trust me. I think more harm was done to it sitting in a garage without being run most of the winter versus me keeping it outside with a tarp tightly wrapped. At least I would run it during...
