I'm not a fan of loud... so despite all the childlike stuff about my Cxfe Racer there's this

Just got the tapered bearings for the front end... need to do a spacer... may need a little lathe work... 400cc oil in the forks... bleed the front brakes... clamp the mufflers... do a bit of wiring.. put on the lic. plate, throw on the old seat and GO Ride... so, maybe a week?

Different Kind of Racket

The old CX a bit better now, I had a coolant leak when it came up to temperature.

Need to make a mount for the old tach and temp gauge...
still don't know if I'll get an Ace meter... pricey

Going to order exhaust silencer pipes I think... the old ones are pretty ratty. I hate exhaust work so fresh material will make it easier.

As you can see in the video I have no Clip Ons for the forks yet...
neeed advice on size, I think they are 50mm.. taking a chance on size here

Two step backwards one step forward

Had a heck of a time deciding to tear the old front end off an mock up
the new used front end off of a Hysong GT 250R.

Hope it's not sprung to soft... we will see

Alls Balls does not make a kit... I need to consult the CX500 forum... what would I do without those guys?
