looking to build a cb550, where can i get info?
im completely illeterate on this bike. i.e i dont know sh!t about it.
where can i brush up on a lot of info?
im looking for things like, diy mods. im big into watercooled vw's and if there is one thing ive learned from all that its that all the little mods add up to make the car great.
im just brainstorming off the top of my head here but im looking at things like:
an oem brake upgrade from a later year
making the kickstarter easier to kick over
making the clutch lever feel lighter
oem parts (most likely from later years) for engine performance
info on carbs (where can i get a set new, or alternatives, parts)
i havent purchased a bike yet, but there are two in the area for under $1k in good running shape i have my eye on. one is a 78 and one is a 75.
both look great as well. any reccomendations on what years to get/avoid?
