I bought a cj360t in decent shape... stripped off the indicators, seat, grab bar, tailsection and various "ballast" and am in the midst of making a mild street-cafe conversion. I would like relocate the pegs and foot controls; does anyone know of a company which would make some sort of mounting plates or kit for conversion to rearsets for this bike? Of course the less cutting, drilling and welding (ideally, NONE) I would have to do, the better. Thanks in advance for your help.

you can probably adapt the 350 rears to it. (although raask doesnt list the 350/2, but something else that it works for. honda 450, maybe 500/s or something, i cant remember) raask stuff is getting harder and harder to find. again, like we havent been through 8 million times, discovolante is the place. parts and pieces can be had through mcmaster carr.

I'm sure they do. there used to be a company called Novella out of Indiana that imported them. there's also Discovolante from the UK that sell Tarozzi's. much better than Raask. their site has been down for a while. Omar's sells something for xs650's with Tarozzi controls. maybe he can get them for the 360. too bad though, disco's were much cheaper. just looked at omar's site, he carries raask too.

just turn the volume down when looking at rearsets, what a tool

Well, I didn't have my medication I usually take when I eat. Plus, the Moons and Hammy swimming in a lake of bile and PBR probably didn't help.
I could be wrong, though.

novella was based in palatine illinois. (same place they build weber grills!!) i used to have the direct number there and used to order parts from them. every spring id place the typical order for the upcomming demolition derby, i mean racing season. im pretty sure they are gone now. the number doesnt work anymore and i havent been able to find it anyplace. and in reality, although they are cheap, they arent the best quality. the castings are sloppy and they arent the easiest things to use. and they can break rather easily too. im still partial to the tarozzis, and one day, whne people stop giving me parts for the raasks, i'll buy them.

Many thanks, lads, for your kind help. Still waiting to hear back from Omar on whether Raask makes rearsets for the CJ. I appreciate having been steered in the right direction.

chances are if they dont make a direct bolt up, the only thing you'll have to change to get them to work are the linkages. the rods etc.

good luck

Okay lads... one more question for now. Does anyone have a wiring schematic for this bike that he could maybe e-mail me? Or is there an online resource where I might be able to download it, say, as a .pdf? I have heard that the CB250GS, CJ250, CB360, CB360G, CJ360T and the CL360 all use the same wiring diagram. The wiring on my bike is a freakin' rat's nest. I am just trying to save myself thirty bucks. Thanks to all.
