Yeah I'm in the process. Learning a lot too, since I'm new to this. Luckily, I have a gracious friends who is showing me the ropes. I'm also glad I signed up for this forum. Advice is appreciated.MNellis said:If you ran the oil low then you probably needed to tear it down anyway. As a rule, those things don't use oil.
The 360 doesnt have an oil filter as such, but a centifugal spinner. You dont replace it, you wash it. But you will need to buy or fabricate the socket tool to remove it.CarolinaBoy said:I plan on splitting the cases to remove any debris. I also need to get a new oil filter.
Wow. Thanks man. That would have been a shocker to go into blind. I'll be ordering one of those, I suppose.leethal said:The 360 doesnt have an oil filter as such, but a centifugal spinner. You dont replace it, you wash it. But you will need to buy or fabricate the socket tool to remove it.
I am waiting to cut that until I figure out what seat I end up using. If it doesn't interfere with the seat pan I choose, I may leave it, especially if I can bolt the battery to it. If I cut it, I'll just weld something flat in there for frame support. I don't think there's any risk of the tire rubbing by removing it.1971 CB450 said:I notice you haven't cut off the rear frame/seat mount hump yet. Are you? Do you risk the tire rubbing by doing so?
I'm really happy with the rearsets so far. I have not ridden them yet, but they feel good thus far. Brent at Motobits is a really great guy, and easy to work with. The fitment on my bike was great, aside from interfering with the stock exhaust. I really recommend Motobits.HerrDeacon said:How do you like the rearsets? I'm planning on going with Motobits as well, interested in hearing your opinion of them. From what I hear they are nice. Was fitment good with them?
Yours look like they could possibly work. A smaller than stock muffler will work even with the upsweep. My stock ones were just too close, and I haven't picked up anything new yet.krukster86 said:Sigh, I have been considering rearsets as well and have looked at those from motobits. I realized I liked my upswept mufflers too much to get them. The bike is looking pretty sweet though!
