Great progress but those gear cables should route under the kickstart.
Thanks Rowdy for pointing that out, I looked at the cable adjusters and looked at kicker spline housing and just couldn't see it going down and under.
I'm so sorry. Your are right. Don't change anything.

Thanks Rowdy, I was just starting a research on it again, I thought I had researched the crap out of it before hand. No wonder its taken me 7 years to get this far.

Another update, I received the restored speedo from Steve at Speedo King, it was stuck at Canada customs for near a month. He sent back the old faceplate as well.
I wired up and installed the taillite , I need a rubber gasket so no lense on yet.
I installed the trim back on the cowls and just need to attach the door and latch to the left cowl and then rubber trim.

Ok I better update a bit, got the new fork built by Jonathan at Gick Speed, highly recommended. Installed new races and bearings and other than the heavy handedness by me torquing the races too tight and collapsing the top mount , it went well.

More update and catching up.
Headset back in place and I added a mirror holder bracket but it needed modication because it was hitting top of legshield when turned in either direction. After a bit of grinding it cleared legshield.

Next was to tap the horn screw holes to M3 and new screws.

New original headlite and installed.I ended up changing the bezel on the headlite and 12 volt bulbs of course.

Speedo added.

Pinasco regulator added.

Front brake and speedo fastened.

Getting the rubber on the cowls, the neibours cat came over to help.


mirror attached










Very low miles








horn wires in place


new screws for horn




proper fastener for gas cap , but I don't think its venting good

After having the bike on the road for a bit I was finding it was shutting down every once in a while and had a look at the gas cap, I could see the vent hole on the tank side but not the top . I took it off the bracket and sure enough there was no top exit hole. I got my dremel with a small bit and drilled on an angle through with the inside hole, reassembled and did a few miles, I think that fixed it. I will be ordering a new cap and bracket.


you can see the vent hole


no exit from the vent hole , painted over


drilled through

Its pretty much done , except for I need to fix up a booboo I made with the drill bit drilling the holes for the emblem but I have the bad divets refilled for paint and will address them later once the touchup paint cures , I'm going to use a razor to cut them down level and then some 1500 paper and buffing compound and buff to shine. I'm goin to simply stick the emblem in place for now as well as the centre emblem.
I still have to see what I can do with the rear taillite , its not sitting nice nice yet. All lites are now functioning normally.
I ordered a bench seat, can't stand this bouncy solo seat.
I'll see how much heat cycling I can get done before the snow fly's here.

Looks great. Very clean work I must say. Thanks for all the pictures. I can definitely see the differences between yours and mine. Interesting...

I will be saving for some upgrades now.

I finally got around to changing from a Be3 to a Be5 , also I had thought I had a 118 on there but it was a 116 , hoping I didnít do any harm.
But wow what an amazing difference in pickup , now was it the change in the atomizer or the jet that gave this improvement ? So now Iím running with the 140/BE5/118 and the 50/120 , I always did have the 140 on the stack. Iím at 340 miles and wearing a big ass grin.
