If you have rearsets, please let me see. im trying to keep the stock pipes because mine are in perfect shape but im having trouble postioning rearsets because they are in the way.
i dont understand how a passenger could do it.
ya, i wear nothin but vans, redwings, and a-stars, but those are some ghey looking vans. although chex and skulls are cool. sorry, this thread has already started off questionably. i gotta puch it into submission as fast as possible. now, about those glasses......
it's all good...all for fun, i mean nixoid's seat just makes me laugh a lot. and yeah, i didn't post much either until i met a ton of the guys on here...and basically, we're all wankers. anyway, how do you like the R6 rearsets...i used 'em on my 350 for a while and the brackets were so big they just put everything way too far up and back for me.
I think in this case, it's better just to keep the stock peg location. Also, on your seat, I think it will work better if you cut an angle slanting rearwards. This should give you a better riding position. You know GNG offered to sew seats covers for the cost of materials, right?
hey I was just asking if you can actually ride that......
I know I couldn't and wouldn't
I'm sure the R6 sets are fine but
they aren't "rear sets" until they are mounted rearward and low enough your knees aren't fouling your arms
those mid mount san fran pegs look to me like they want some 15-21" tall apes
which would actually make it somewhat ridable
that's the way I see it anyhow
but you are young and maybe too young to appreciate things like intelligent ergonomics and a bike that actually fits you
when they do, they become much easier to make keep up with a guy like me that would otherwise spank you up and down the road on a 30 horsepower chopper with over 40 degrees rake and maybe a 12 over springer
I don't care one bit about skulls, flames, and other scary stuff
but there are really good reasons why proper motorcycle foot wear covers riders' ankles
by the way of full disclosure...here are my rearsets on a CB350 from a honda 929. i can't weld brackets yet, so they're held on with P-clamps from that silly Kuryakyn aftermarket chrome company....the clamps rock by the way. but my shit is kinda half-assed too.
Derek, why don't you show some close ups of how the R6 pegs mount?
I fail to understand why you think the stock pipes would get in the way of mounting those where they need to be to fit you on that bike.
They need to be much further back and quite a bit lower.
CW magazine gives measurements and angles of most all bikes they test and it is quite reasonable to locate your pegs based off of:
1) your seating is established
2) your handlebars are pretty much established although somewhat adjustable
3) if the seat and bar locations suit your upper body
then simply put your feet where it all makes sense and doesn't leave you with a few reversals in your upper spine and maybe a few degenerated discs in your lower...... takes years for it to start causing problems but the bottom line is
put them where they make sense, even if you have to cut/fab/weld.....
and if you are some sort of aboriginally skeletoned contortionist
my apologies but you appear to be a normal mammal like most the rest of us
Hey all, new here. Just got myself a 72’ Honda CB100 with a CL100 engine swap. Im replacing the lighting and fenders, but I’m running into an issue with finding compatible lights. Everything that I’ve found that is low profile runs on 12v, but the bikes battery is only 6v. Haven’t done a TON of...
Hello all............recently put a new battery in my 69 cb175. Battery died after a week or so. I only rode it for a total of an hour within that time. It usually takes 6 cranks with starter to get her going so i imagine that's draining the battery significantly. I also have an H4 type bulb...
Is anyone running an older DR650 as a stripped down trail bike or desert sled?
I am currently working on one, and trying to find a good exhaust, tire and seat setup. Open to input and suggestions.
In general, will mounting tires sized (110/90 -18F) and (120/90 – 18R) make a difference one way or another if a bike has tire/rim sizes to accept (100/90 -18 F) and (110/90 – 18 R) stock by the manufacturer? No clearance issues being a prerequisite.
Working on a bike that has a sorted history. Don't know any more about the motor other than it is a '83 or '84 CB or CM 450. Trying to figure out if we need a CDI when rewiring with a Motogadget M Unit?
Would appreciate help as we try to determine a wiring diagram.
