This is a discussion on 1977 RD400 for sale - $3800 OBO within the Bikes For Sale forums, part of the Classifieds category; Ask the twitworth for a pic of his bike....
I like your RD btw.
if I was going to vintage track race, I think that would be in contention,
although I'm not sure what class they would stick you in :|
Hope you lost it on craigslist and eBay.
not going to sell here...
I am Derby\'s Bitch
Some times things come around that are so singularly inept it gives you a whole new appreciation for the ept
This ride was more for a trip down the nostalgic memory lane as my first bikes were ripping 2strokes.
Incidentally Dean - saw that your in highland park Il. I grew up in lake bluff and used to caddie at Bob O Link country club in HP. Used to ride my Kenny Roberts rz350 to and from the course - loved that bike until I snapped my finger in the sprocket one day!
ramair311: "New upper end including Wiseco pistons (stock CC) " Wisecos need more clearance to run than OEM pistons. Did you just put them in and hope for the best or think a light hone would let the slip through? How many miles with the Wisecos? Stock CC? Really?
So I gather it's got worn out old OEM shocks? No mention of those. Does the seat suck up water when it rains?
Jag or I have no need to "gang up" to deal with you. I stand on my own two feet, as I see Jag does. And DiamondJ.
I envy your biting wordsmithery. You have got the worst reaction from regulars here, quicker, with the least keystrokes than any other poster. By envy I don't mean funny.
Maybe the street corner with the sign and the minty-fresh Ab-roller is the sales venue for you?
Try putting enough details in a modified bike advert next time. Paying for it even.
Danger, is my business.
How are the reed valves, do they lay perfectly flat against the cage? Stock original, replaced to your knowledge or aftermarket?
… was a part that made a significant performance difference on my 2-strokes.
Oil is still by injection, or are you running pre-mix ? I remember the RD's as being pretty heavy smokers :|
Also having a difficult time keeping the front end down, when it hit the power-band on a modified RD350
… I'd probably be scared to do a high speed wheelie on a skinny tired bike now, been riding the fat Pirelli on the MV too much lately
"Does the seat suck up water when it rains?" haha lets pick out the important stuff! idiot!
