Re: Acceleration stutter

Check the side stand switch, mine did this for a while. Side stand switch was on it's way out. Just pull it a part and dead end it into itself with a loop. Then ride and see if it stops. Can't use a meter on it because it will most likely test good. It malfunctions under vibration. Threw me off for ...

Re: Turbo Kiwi

Hey C. Hope you are doing well.

I know you know all about the Suzuki stuff, as you used it on your bike, I am assuming you are just offering options. Cause, he stated he was staying with the stock Turbo swing arm, and using other bits from a ZR7.

Re: Turbo Kiwi

Great work, looking good. I am watching this with interest. When I did mine, I did it using a 5" wheel following the "how to section" on here. You obviously have a lot of skill and seem like you have done this before. But just curious how you take up space on the brake caliper side. A...

Re: Clutch and valve springs

Lorcan, I didn't have time last night to check mine. Post back here if you still need Dim.'s I believe I do have valve springs also because we put APE heavy duty springs in my motor. Will have to dig everything up, but pretty sure I have them.

Re: Clutch and valve springs

Lorcan, are you wanting stock Dim.'s off a stock clutch spring? I have some of those, no valve springs though.

Re: 1985 Turbo 750 for sale

That's great news, glad it worked out and riturbo is the man. I wasn't trying to be negative or anything on my earlier post it's just that over the years sometimes I have seen it take a while for one of these old girls to sell. :victory

Re: 1985 Turbo 750 for sale

IMHO These bikes are really old now, coming up on 39 years, and the people that owned them back in the day and most that own them now are old, or just not with us any more. Most that might see your bike listed are younger an have no clue what they are even looking at. Anyway the point is I agree wit...

Re: Lone Turbo

Well not so lone anymore. We have hired about 10 to 15 people now with bikes, not even enough spots for us all.

It comes and goes though. One month 20 people riding between day and night shifts. A month later back to the lone Turbo. Lol.

Re: 750 Turbo LFD Style

Thanks for all the replies. I have been slammed at work and now I am in the mountains in South Carolina so I am checking in. Fabio, I appreciate your knowledge and sharing your experience. It is a very small diameter nail almost right in the center so I don't think most shops will have issue with re...

I didn't put my whole story, like I am sure you didn't as well. But I to have owned a few bikes in my years and bought my first turbo back in the ea...

Re: 750 Turbo LFD Style

Thanks racink I will find out, but I believe it is pretty common place today. They will not plug it, but as long as it is in or near the center they will do a performance patch from the inside, most will, probably not all. I don't like the idea of having anything other than a perfect tire especially...

Re: 750 Turbo LFD Style

Thanks, Jez I had forgotten JIS has to do with the screw heads. And yes I have used a Phillips on them. :rofl: Guilty. I have a metric tap & die set, and a drill index for proper drill sizes, so no issue there. My fault for not educating myself more on metric stuff. What is confusing is that the...

Re: Here I go again !!

Looking good brother. For people like us it is definitely about the details. Others may never see all the attention to detail especially in just a pic. but you will know! And that's what matters.
