I had one that was too thick and wouldnt let the retainer ring line up. Took it over to the lath and even though it is hardened a carbide tool took enough off to let it work.

When my dad had his little plane in the winter before flying we would take a electric heater with a stove pipe on it to warm the engine.

You will need the triple clamps also. They were wider for the dual disks. Then you can put in tappered steering bearings. Also the 82 (+newer?) calipers were 2 piston but would need the disks to go with them.

Here the 79 had the OHC650 covers and in 80 they went plain. Both had slider carbs. Have to look at the fins. Both of my 81s have the 79 covers.

I would think someone (Rob?) put slipon pipes as they should be 4-4 on the custom. Also the paint one the custom I thought was always a 2 tone.
These bike are getting old and who knows what changing past owners have done.
I seen one with a drum front brake once.

You didnt get any of the crap down in it did you? Might be worth a rebuild. Your calipers might need a tention too.

That is a big diffrance. I'm trying to investigate putting a hipo 550 cam in instead of going through the expence of having a 650 cam reground. On place had a 550 cam with the same lift as the 650 another has about 1 mm more. Wonder what it would gain in hp? Dont want anything radical just little mo...

Like to help but my bikes with the 4-1 are both 81s with cv carbs. And I am at 5500 ft above sea level. Stock was 120 and everyone told me with headers and pods that was fine for the alt. When I started racing played with the jets and I'm using 112.5 in race bike and 115 in street bike. So much for ...
