    I've got an '83 GL650I and have been toying with the idea of doing a cafe racer build. Mechanically, the bike has been bulletproof and is my "daily" driver. I keep seeing incredible builds from others and I think it's something that I'd like to try. One of my biggest concerns starting this build...

    Hey guys, first huge thanks to this forum. You guys are amazing and have helped me so much in this dream of rebuilding a bike. So here's the problem I've run into: My GL650 has increased engine noise (I think it is transmission related) whenever I am riding in the 2500-3000rpm range. It's not...

When I started working on the lights and dashboard (if it is called this way), I realised that neither the speedometer nor the tachometer is working.

    I made this account just to warn others as I made the mistake of not researching before I purchased from this seller. Judging from past threads this seller has been blacklisted from Ebay and used multiple usernames. Unfortunately, the seller Eric, still operates under Cafe Racer Seat | Custom...

    Tremendously lighter with that exhaust off. I've got some LEDs and a chunkier tire for the back. Just a speedo and temp gauge up top, under a small fairing. Small fenders, most of the electrical hidden.

    CX500c 1980, Compression is 120 on the left and about 115 on the right. Not too mismatched, I think, but how much compression is Good, Better, Best? Don't have the book yet.

    Hi! I got CX650 Eurosport. I was trying to replace Handle bar to aftermarket one. I found those switch boxes have aluminum pins to set the position. Of course, the aftermarket bars don't have holes for it. In that case, do I have to drill the new bar? At this stage, I removed the pins and...
