Nice!

Bike is going to look awesome when all together.

Now your getting to the fun part of a build when you can start to bolt on on the look goodies.

Oh yeah... then there is that whole shaking out period when you finally get it started and it first few rides down the driveway to start dialing it in.


Keep plugging along- I see some spring riding coming up it them there Westcliffe hills!

Yeah, bolting on the stuff that makes it look like a runner! I couldn't find a replacement tank to match the stock '81 465 and didn't want to go with a used tank after what happened with my OEM 490 tank. The only one I could find aftermarket was a large 4-gallon desert tank that looked terrible. Like a water balloon about to pop. So I went with an '81 YZ465 tank, which looks much better (but has a bit less capacity than the stock IT tank).

AAAAAAAAAAANNNNNDDDDD... another hiccup.

Working on installing the new chain and noticed the blue paper shop towel over the top of the carb was saturated with oil. What the...?

It didn't take much sleuthing to discover the shock is leaking oil from both ends of the hose that connects the front of the shock to the nitrogen canister.

Ugh....

I'll call Sage Suspension (who rebuilt the shock back in the spring) tomorrow and see if he'll take another look at it. Doubt there's much he can do if the hose is failing/failed.

Steve will probably just have a new hose made. Steel braided line. Shouldn't be a big deal.

Default Another Blessing



OK, the shock hose is replaced and ready for pickup next time I get to North Denver.

In the mean time, I was handed an early Christmas present. A complete set up of speedometer, mount, cushion, drive cable, guides and front hub drive unit for sale.

NO WAY!!!

One thing led to another, the box arrived and my street legal issue of speedo is solved. I LOVE not having to go to a VaporTech unit and being able to use a stock looking setup.

SCORE!! Thank you for the early Christmas gift Lord!

Now I just need to start INSTALLING parts instead of simply BUYING parts.

Default More Progress and More Problems



I had an amazingly free Saturday today and so spent some time on the 465. Time to clean up that ignition/lighting harness mess.

As a reminder, this is what I got from the PO. The usual broken grommet and 5lbs of silicone.





DEET had some (I think they were) RT or DT harness grommets that he sent so I am going to try to modify one to work for this application. I got all the silicone cleaned off and fit the replacement grommet. Here it is marked for trimming down to fit.








I finished removing the old grommet and found some wire damage. Looks like someone had been poking the wires with a probe. The brown wire was hanging by a couple of copper threads. Sigh.








I pulled the stator to make things easier and strip, crimp, solder and shrink tube repaired the broken brown wire.

Slip the new, trimmed grommet over the wires and crimped new connectors on with the awesome Vintage Connectors kit.








Now comes the problem. In installing the stator, the manual says to align THE (singular) base mark on the stator to THE (singular) case mark on the case. My bike has three marks on the stator and one mark on the case with two punch holes. What the... ?!?






















....to be continued
