My 750 GT with 32s and the lever enrichers does the same thing. Carbs were completely rebuilt already. The thing is that when cold my bike doesn't like to start with only one lever up. Well, it starts, but only on one cylinder! It's also a royal PITA to get to the rear carb's lever... I'm likely goi...

250 Monza => 350 Bitsa

It's probably much too early to be posting pics of this project since it's really still in the parts gathering stage, but here it is anyway. My 250 Monza project bike, the before pic. http://www.teamyikes.com/Resources/Before003.JPG The vision of what "after" should be has changed a few ti...

I don't remember if I posted this link here already, I don't think so... Anywhos, I started a video of this project when I first got it, then forgot about the video, then ran across it and decided to finish it up. I got tired trying to deal with the audio track so I deleted it all and put it to musi...

I seem to remember facing this same issue on my 750 GT. The spacer won't move aside to let you get a drift on it even if you wanted to. I couldn't get a blind puller on it either. So... I had a guy weld something across the inner race on the bearing so I had something to push on to press it out. On ...

That's called "what should I do with all these spare parts I have sitting around" added to a buddy that says "I've got this Monza Jr frame that's all bent up..."

He's probably referring to the surface in the throttle itself that the cables wrap around when the grip is turned. You can change the response of the throttle by changing the shape of that surface. A smaller radius means you have to move the throttle more for a given lift at the slides. Too big of a...

Are there enough of these in use on singles that there's some good info for initial jetting?

I'm interested in one for my 350, but to be honest the black top and float bowl bum me out... call me shallow but them's the facts.

I think you're going to find that a 90 degree V twin is a lot smoother than a parallel twin. Vibrations shouldn't be a problem on the Darmah. If the stuff that was removed weighed much all you'll find is it revs faster now. But if you have nothing to compare it too, even that will be moot. 8)

Maybe I'm not understanding what has been taken off, but from the sound of it, nothing that figures in to the balance factor has been modified.

I plan on building a similar bike too. I'm starting with a 250 Monza. First step is to put a 350 engine into it. 8) I think it's hard to say what the "ultimate" set up would be. Better to just go with what you like. No matter what set up you have somebody's going to say "Well, I would...

Are you located in Michigan? EDIT - I just noticed the date of the original post. I think I've dealt with this guy before... was located near me but when I finally pulled a top triple for him I never heard from him again. I kind of got the feeling that when he realized A) the parts were already bein...
