Hey Smoker, didn't you buy an NSR400 done up in "west" colors several years ago? Do you still have it, if I remember right, that was a sexy bike also!

I don't want to give it up- but I'm going to have to sell that, and my low mileage '87 RZ350.
Need to get another bike with electric start.

Will still have 3 RZ350s and the RZ500.

Titanium spacer. Weight = 12 grams. Fit is perfect.

Working on another fix for the RZV. The front shock mount bolts to the lower crankcase. The upper crankcase bolts to the front engine mounts. Without the engine installed, it's difficult to set up the roller.

My frame is upside-down:

Ordered some 8mm threaded stainless rod and 8mm i.d. tubing. Will measure on my RZ500 where the bolt is and machine some delrin mounting blocks/protectors to clamp to the frame for mockup with the rod/tubes/nuts.

Anyone near you have an empty set of cases you can borrow Pete? I have some, but I'm not exactly around the corner.

Thanks.

That was the first thing I thought of. But, unless I could find unusable cases, it sounds like an expensive proposition.

I was lucky, and did find some trashed RZ350 casings for a different project. Who knows, maybe I'll get lucky, again!
