Hello all

Postby Cb673 » Wed Oct 03, 2018 7:53 pm

I've lurked a lot, and learned a lot as well.
Thanks for all the ideas, fixes, and such....


Anyway, ive been riding my '79 650 for about 14 years now.
Wrenching, cursing and smiling along the way.
Loving the Estacada,OR area.

Haven't gotten the picture resizing to work yet...
So... my '79 is.... modified, slightly?
Fiberglass seat, longer swingarm(1 inch or so), double disk brakes up front, 4-1 exhaust, 32(?34)mm CV carbs, slotted cam gear, ported and flow benched head, 61mm, pistons, and sadly a 550 cam at the moment... for a while actually... years.

I thought since I am finally going to 62mm pistons soon, I'd join and post pictures of the overbore going together.
Gotta love New toys, and nothing more fun than a cometic head gasket!

are you running a stock 550 cam?
Did you clean the tank out?!?!?!?!

Yes it's a stock 550 cam using a 5 degree slotted cam gear.
I would have changed it long ago, but if I tear into this motor I know there is at least 1 almost stripped out thread in the head, and have been putting off helicoiling the holes.(thread repair insert)
