Are the front brakes the same part for all model years, or did they update the caliper part # in a certain year? I'm fairly certain I could use an 85-87' with no issues, but what about a '91?
yeah good to go, might need to change bolts or something but easy...

I use a 96 caliper on my 88, hose too

Seconds later he was asking me questions about the bike how i've fixed it up and how good is looks.. Didnt even say anything about the plate anymore. no warning, no have-it-fixed-next-time-I-see-you, no ticket no nothing!
Reminds me of the time when I was a teenager coming home from the drag strip in my really LOUD old Dodge (open headers, high compression cammed up 413). A local cop pulled in behind me as I slipped into the alley. He followed me up the alley and stopped behind me when I pulled up to the garage. He spent a good hour standing there BS'ing about race cars! Never once said anything about the drag slicks or noise.
Cops are just normal guys... some of them like dirt bikes and race cars just like us hooligans

Yeah. NO. I don't think so.

Something got into the cylinder and beat up the combustion chamber.

What did the piston look like or had it been replaced?

looks like something small metalic and or stone like got sucked in

maybe a plug tip or when doing a sparkplug change something fell in like DIRT or a little stone and rumble in the jungle

I have come to the conclusion(since someone made a new billet plate for my oem carb) that the couple of gouges I have in my combustion chamber were from a sucked in flapper...not the whole choke, but just the little flapper.

its also the reason I have some weird oem custom exhaust valves...jajajaja

that Im not using

I wonder if the choke plate broke off at one time or another? Tom

Another stupid (probably already answered) question:

I'm looking at a set of Kenda 270s, but I can't figure out the preferred size for a front and rear; it's in English instead of metric.

What sizes are you guys running as far as tire sizes? 3" front, 4.1" rear seems about right, but does it work well with the bike or should I go bigger?
