Great progress on the bike!Isn't it strange how the breather box just sits on the two rubber hoses- no mounting bracket or tab so it can be secured to a frame tube. But I guess it works. I'm off to buy hose clamps to install mine today.
Groover - my apologies for the deviations. I have all the stock parts so I can bring it back to proper spec if necessary.
The Dyna III came in today. Great instructions and easy install. More importantly a big fat spark. I custom built throttle cables for the Domino throttle, checked all the nuts and bolts and fueled it up. Here is the first start:https://youtu.be/3FqY6K9jvZY It ran great around the block a few times. It was my first ride on a big block. Very smooth and torquey and I instantly liked the heel toe shifter. Im really going to like the bike. There is a lot of sorting to do and I need to install the front fender, retorque the heads, adjust the carbs etc. I feel a little empty when I finish a project.
Is it the quick pull double cable Domino throttle you have? I have that one two and found that it has a tendency to go out of sync after a while. I guess when you have two throttle cables moving back and forth every time you turn the bars they will creep a little bit. And never the same amount. I think I will go back to a single cable throttle and a splitter at some point. "I feel a little empty when I finish a project." - You can always start a new one right away Or have several in the backlog, that's what I do. Then it feels great when one is finished, then on to the next one after!
It is the quick pull Domino Rick. It works fine now. I had to build custom cables for it, which will get old if it tends to break them. I use the stock cables and cut them back a bit and solder in the adjusters and nipples that fit the Domino. I do have a very nice 1977 R100S and a 1973 SL125 waiting for restoration. I usually take a few months and get some maintenance done on the running bikes. I also have most of the parts for a VW dune buggy build that Ive been putting off.
Well done, and congrats! Just did my first considerable mileage weekend on my '79. 687 miles over 4 days and one of those a very spirited 156 miles on Kentucky twisties. What wonderful machines, and mine's not 'fresh' like yours is. I imagine you're gonna love it. Cheers!
Awesome. The G5 rocks..
