Winter Mods!!! Who else?

18 posts in this topic

It was warm in NY so I finally got to detail the yammie and put on my FMF Ti 4.1 and megabomb header. Just as I'm done the shop calls me and the rest of my parts are in. I got the sunline V1 GYTR clutch and brake levers. I figured everyone has ASV so I want to be different. These levers are frikkin sick! Picked up a magnesium colored GYTR 50 tooth sprocket, also very sick! DID 520 x-ring chain, and msr kick stand. I'll install those bad boys tomorrow. Hopefully the budget will allow for some applied triple clamps and Hinson clutch components over the next few months. Anyone else planning on doing some cabin fever modifications?

Ah, a fellow new yorker. For me cabin fever really ends up being an illness. I never know when to stop when it comes to details on my bikes. Another winter is upon us, and once the engines are rebuilt, the suspensions serviced, and all the bearings greased, the imagination begins to run wild.

I'm from New Hartford, just outside of Utica. Where are you?

Newburgh. It is 50 miles north of NYC.

Be careful, soon you may find yourself drilling holes in all the washers on your bike...

Are these speed holes? Also I heard new graphics add at least 10 hp at the rear wheel! I think I know what my next mod is!:worthy:

In 1973, I owned a '72 CZ 380. It was a great bike for its time, but stock 380's weighed over 240 pounds in a class where they were allowed to weigh as little as 215. So I went on a quest for the lightest everything I could bolt onto the bike (got a 3 pound fiberglass tank that saved 6 pounds over the stock steel one). I used to go shopping with an angler's scale, weighing handlebars and other parts. And, I spent hours with a drill in hand, putting holes in everything. I drilled washers, frame gussets, brake shoes, and on and on. I drilled dimples into the back side of the clutch cover, mag cover, and backing plates. People thought I was nuts. I pointed to the piles of chips on the floor and said, "you don't see those floating through the air, do you?"

But in the end, I had a CZ 400 that weighed 219 pounds with the stock frame (dry tank, ready to ride).
