  1. Introductions
    Hi guys! New here. I live in Windsor, Ontario. I've been on 2,and 4 wheels all my life. I'm thinking about starting a collection of noteworthy bikes. I found a deal on a nice 97 Blackbird about 1.5 weeks ago. I really like the looks and who doesn't like the fact that it was the fastest...

    I bought the bike home on Halloween and gave myself until Spring to get it all sorted out. Blew apart the forks, stripped the finish, prep, prime, color and clear. New seals and flushed the internals. Here's a tip for that - 1.5" PVC with an end cap drilled in the center. Use the copper washer...

    Hi all, I've had me bird for nearly three months now. I got it to replace a stolen 91 750 vfr and up until three days ago was so disappointed I was on the verge of selling it. I decided to Google common problems with the 99 bird and was instantly brought here to the "loom fix" page. It took a...

    These are very similar to the convertibars but the part that bolts to the fork tube looks a bit larger and may hit the plastic trim around the forks when turned lock to lock. they are for sale on the sportbiketrackgear.com website whom are great to work with, but I still hate to pop for them...

    I found an obscure listing in Craigs. Nice guy, but doesn't have a lot of resources. I'm not sure how easily you get him to ship something, but if you need some of the parts, it may be worth a try. He's parted out most of the bike but he's got an instrument gauge cluster, full forks, triple...

    So, I am in dire need of some suspension work, especially in the front. I was originally planning on buying Sonic Springs 1.0-1.1 kg (w/ everyday gear, I'm pushing about 230lbs and ride 2-up often). Then I was gonna wait for a really good deal on a rear shock. However, I came across the Hyperpro...

    Hello everyone, Is there any formal way to test suspensions (front & rear) on a Bird? I bought my bird couple of month ago but not very familiar with this bike's behavior. (I used to ride smaller bikes before) Any hints? Idea or technique to test the suspensions? Thanks DD
  8. Suspension / Tires / Wheels / Brakes
    Hey guys, I'm at wit's end. I've owned my baby for about 9 months now and after all the mods I'm truly enjoying it except for one thing. Somewhere along the way, a problem developed wherein the left handlebar sits much further away than the right. I'd guess an inch. I can also see from the top...

Please help. I have...

    Hi everyone. Just been out on my recent purchase - 1998 'bird with 38k on the clock. Runs really rough until you get past 6000 - I am guessing the carbs need a clean and balance. Different bike to my Triumph Daytona but - getting older so maybe I need to get into a sports tourer instead of pure...

    Sorry gents, need info asap... Will 2005 forks fit a 1998 wheel/rim? (Im looking at buying 05 for my 98) AND is the upper triple the same on ALL models (just the ignition system different i.e. short/long keys) or are carb&fi different? Much appreciation in advance!

    Anyone know what year of BB's the forks will interchange with? I know in 99 they made some changes? I was told in 01 there were more changes??? I am putting a 99 back together and just need some new forks. The ones I have were bent...Am I out of luck with these?
