Awesome build. I'm subscribed.

Here's my Dad at our MX track on his 76' YZ 400 back in the day.

Yesterday I didn't get a whole lot done on the bike. CZ Ron came over and helped me hang some lights for my garage. 6 fixtures with 4 t-8 bulbs each. I now am able to see what I am doing in the evenings. This is the light during the day with the door shut.





The original silencer for this bike was a big spark arrestor. I gather they came with them because it's Kalifornia. The end cap was dented up and just hammered and someone had drilled some holes in it to improve performance. The original hole is about 3/4" in diameter. I cut the end of the cap off and machined a washer to clean it up and it now has a 1 1/4" out let. I just brazed it on and cleaned it up.

I had some more time to work on the bike before Lost in Space came on. (Last night was the second episode BTW. It was cool.) This is the stock silencer.



Cleaned up and ready for paint.



A little test fit before paint.



This thing is huge and heavy. It may be changed out later. I also wanted to check on the fit of the pipe to the silencer. I hate sploog all over everything. It seems to be pretty tight.

I went ahead and painted the silencer and stuff. Mounted it with rubber tubing over the connecting joint to help with keeping the bike clean.........I hope.



The end cap and guts before installation. I think it came out pretty good and looks like it "could" have been original.



Installed on the bike with the packing inside. I was waiting on my pipe hanger to dry up.

The other day when I was a the bike shop I picked up these fork boots. They were in the used parts stuff so I cleaned them up to see how they would work on the bike as the Daystars I bought weren't up to my liking. Little armor all and there ya go.




They look OK .........but............I might get a set from the Vintage Spoke as they are supposedly exact copies of the originals.



This is how I ended last night.

After getting the front end back together I worked on little "trinket" stuff. Did a little bit of safety wiring on things I always do.

Put all the hangers on the silencer to increase the weight of the thing even more.



Went down and bought a new chain at the local bike shop. Not the greatest chain but it will work. This won't be rode that much.



Cut the chain to length and put it on. I cut it a length longer just to make sure I had enough. I can adjust later.



Put the sprocket cover on and we be havin some thins now. Note the sagging footpeg.



More to come.

I now am at the point of finishing up little stuff. I am waiting on a gas cap that should be here middle of the week.



Had a little PO lice action close to dark. They were looking for a couple of the local ding a lings. We don't get many overflights by the MAN.

Remember the note on the footpegs? I wheeled and dealed to get a good set of pegs for the bike. Well............they weren't much better than what I had. The stock set up design is dreadful and they inherintley wear out the stud and the bore that goes with them and they sag.

Stock set up.



I took the stock perch and cut the post off of it. I remembered I had another set of pegs in my bone yard that would work for what I want. It took me awhile to find them as I have Husky, KTM, Yammie, and God knows what out there. They were in a box in one of my sheds.



After a bunch of grinding and fine tuning I welded them up and put a coat of paint on them.



Shifter side installed. It is gonna work out great. Bigger and wider. Tomorrow I will do the other side.

+ 1 !
My right peg was in good shape, tight fit. I bought a left peg from eBay - it was LOOSE. I made a "bushing" to create a tight fit. Actually, it was more like shimming so the bore fit tightly over the stud. Not as elegant as your solution, Scott. But I think it will work well, and I can always "re-shim".
This was a "before" pic:


Don't have an "after" pic. If I made a pic of my crude work it would make you weep.

after

Found an "after" pic. Doesn't show the "shim" job, but I now have a tight fit. Simple solution for a simple mind:


(actually, I think that's a pic of the right peg, but you get the idea...)
