Most everyone that I have talked to over the years has told me that this was one of the Very Best & Most Popular "High Performance" MX Race Bikes bikes of it's day....& based on my experience with these YAMAHA 250's ...

2009 Kawasaki Versys , ONE MOTORCYCLE FOR ALL OCCASIONS: THE 2009 KAWASAKI VERSYS Seven-day versatility ready for commuting, casual treks or canyon runningWhile the 2009 Kawasaki Versys may defy attempts to pigeon hole it into a preordained role, the truth is this is a machine that epitomizes versatility. The editors at Motorcyclist magazine may have described this jack-of-all-trades motorcycle best: The most impressive thing about the Versys is what it can do. That would be just about anything, and for a lot less money than anything else out there. Call it whatever you want. We re calling it Motorcycle of the Year. To create the Versys, Kawasaki engineers turned to the already user-friendly Ninja® 650R sportbike. Building upon its 649cc parallel-twin engine, six-spoke superbike-inspired wheels, light steering and neutral handling chassis; they added an adjustable-height windscreen, a longer gull shaped swingarm, adjustable, long-travel rear shock, long-travel inverted 41mm forks and provided it with a roomy, comfortable cockpit. The resulting motorcycle is ready to excel at almost any task its rider needs, from gridlock traffic jams, to canyon carving, to long-distance touring.A major element in the flexibility of the Versys motorcycle is its compact liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, DOHC, 8-valve, 649cc parallel-twin engine. This engine was already lively enough for even the most advanced riders, yet predictable enough to inspire confidence in less-experienced motorcyclists. However, it was modified to deliver its smooth power earlier for brisk off-the-line acceleration with plenty of supple torque for the cut-n-thrust commute environment, while still offering excellent fuel economy. Its suspension offers the latest in sophistication with an advanced Showa rear shock utilizing a free piston and two-stage damping valves for progressive compression damping, which firms significantly as the shock moves through its stroke. This allows a wheel travel feel that is initially soft like a dual sport, but firms to near sportbike levels as suspension loads escalate. This high-tech shock is connected to the longer-than-average aluminum gull-wing swingarm made possible by a short/compact engine and chassis. The high-tech suspension approach continues up front with a fully-adjustable, 41mm tapered-tube inverted fork that combines the best of off-road and sportbike suspension action for a stiffness balance that is a perfect match to the Versys chassis settings. In addition to a more-comfortable ride, the long-travel fork s soft-stroke allows easy control of the chassis running angle by shifting the rider s weight. Enhancing the plush ride from its suspension is a carefully designed cockpit that features a stepped seat constructed to provide optimum comfort to both the rider and passenger. An easy-to-read and informative instrument panel allows riders to quickly scan the gauges and get their eyes back on the road. Capping off the c

He rented a three hundred square-foot office in the old Merriam, Kansas Gas building, which he shared with two other businesses. Josh, with the little money saved from buying and selling cars out of the paper, purchased vehicles out of the Autotrader magazine and the Kansas City Star. He then reconditioned them on his own and made sure the few cars he had in inventory were in prime shape. Trying to invent different marketing methods, Josh wanted a bigger presence in Kansas City with his 9-12 car inventory. He began having friends shoot photos of him waiving in front of his vehicles. Being that Autotrader magazine was the prime place to sell cars, with Josh waving in the photos, he was sure to stand out. In 1986 John Zaslavsky, a local small business owner who ran a shoe repair shop two blocks down the road came shopping for a car not knowing what he would find. Josh and John’s friendship began that day. Realizing each others' passion for cars, John began assisting Josh with buying and selling cars. Eventually with the growth of their business, the two formalized their partnership and John sold his formal shoe repair business. Very quickly, John and Josh learned that the tool necessary for becoming successful in the car business was a steady and reliable source for purchasing vehicles. The days of combing the classifieds had to go in order to grow. With the introduction of cell phones in the mid 80s, John had the idea of purchasing ten cell phones and passing them out to local new car managers at new car dealerships. He told them, “When you're trading for a car, page me, and I’ll bid it for you, then come buy it.” This new method appealed to the new car stores because previously, the only choice was to take their trades to the auction and risk loosing money on a weekly basis. Johns phone began ringing so much that less than a month later, he purchased a second phone to carry on him at all times. Now with an ever-growing and steady source for purchasing vehicles, Josh and John's business steadily grew from a 9-12 car inventory to over two hundred, forcing them to expand. In the mid 90’s, John’s brother and son began working as sales people, bringing new energy and ideas accelerating the companies growth. Today the two run the day to day operation of the company with John continuing to buy cars as he did in the 80’s but on a larger scale, and Josh continuing to inspect and work with vehicles to insure a quality product. With the relocation of the founding store, still in Merriam, now on 67th & I-35 and the opening of Country Hill Motors of Olathe, John and Josh have learned, “Achieving success in this business is knowing how to buy quality vehicles, and at what price. Therefore, if you buy it right, selling is never a problem.

YOU ARE LOOKING AT A BRAND NEW 2012 YAMAHA V-STAR 950 TOURER MOTORCYCLE with windshield and hard bags!! STOCK # 2609Manufacturer Warranty MSRP: $9,490Sale Price: $6,990YOU SAVE: $2,500!! DESTINATION: WHEREVERFully equipped with windshield, passenger backrest and leather-wrapped hard sidebags, the moment you pull your V Star 950 onto the on-ramp, the highway is yours. Standard FeaturesKey Features: The V Star 950 Tourer rolls out with a windshield, leather-wrapped hard sidebags, and a passenger backrest all standard, ready for the open road or the commute to school or work. V Star 950 is the benchmark in the entry cruiser touring class, appealing to seasoned riders as well as those looking for a friendly entry-level cruiser. The air-cooled V-twin delivers plenty of distinctive, big-cruiser character and pulsing torque feel. Seat height is an extra-low 26.6 inches. The full-sized chassis has a long, low look and provides spacious comfort. Handling is sporty and responsive, great for curvy back roads and commuting around town as well as open-highway cruising. No wonder V-Twin® Magazine named V Star 950 the 2009 “Metric of the Year”! The 942 cc 60-degree V-twin engine is both simple and sophisticated. Sure, there’s no-fuss air cooling for traditional looks. But inside you’ll find the reason for the surprisingly spirited performance: four-valve cylinder heads, ceramic-composite-lined cylinders, forged aluminum pistons, and fuel injection. The meticulously tuned 2-into-1 exhaust system has a throaty exhaust note, and also 3-way catalyst technology to reduce air pollution. The carefully designed chassis contributes to an exceptionally light feeling riders are sure to appreciate. The double-cradle steel main frame offers an ideal rigidity balance in the longitudinal, lateral, and torsional directions, using the engine as a stressed member. With the engine mounting position slightly forward for optimum front-rear weight distribution and its large, 18-inch front wheel, V Star 950 Tourer has outstanding handling performance. The V Star 950 Tourer achieves fuel economy up to an estimated 47 mpg with a fuel tank that holds 4.5 gallons of gas. Fenders are real steel, front and rear. That adds to the quality look and feel, and makes customization easier. Engine: The 57.5-cubic-inch (942 cc) engine is an air-cooled SOHC 60-degree V twin. With four valves per cylinder, a pent-roof shaped combustion chamber, and 9.0:1 compression ratio, this engine has been carefully designed to produce excellent power characteristics – and best-in-class acceleration. To keep friction loss to a minimum and help the engine achieve the ideal performance characteristics, special compact roller-type rocker arms with needle bearings are used. These also reduce top-end weight for excellent mass centralization. The combustion chamber shape was precisely engineered to direct the fuel air charge into the center of the piston for faster combustion and maximum power. Ceramic-composite-plated cylinders provide excellent heat dissipation and reduced oil consumption. High-quality forged aluminum pistons have a lightweight, high strength compact design that contributes to reduce vibration. The designers realized that the engine’s V twin character was so pleasing on its own that a counterbalancer was unnecessary. This also contributes to simplicity and less operating noise. Sophisticated fuel injection is used on the V Star 950 Tourer. The injectors are four-hole, two-directional types with spray aimed at the valve surfaces. That produces good fuel atomization for faster and more complete combustion which contributes to excellent drivability. The fuel injection system also adopts an ISC (Idling Speed Control) valve for outstanding idling stability. Lubrication is provided by a simple, reliable wet sump system. The 5-speed transmission is all new, with a smooth shifting feeling, and gear ratios spaced to let the rider take full advantage of the engine’s torque characteristics and enjoy comfortable cruising at highway speeds. Naturally, power is efficiently transferred to the rear wheel using simple, quiet belt drive. The engine’s look is highly detailed, with polished cylinder fins and beautifully chrome-plated cylinder head covers, for an exceptional appearance sure to be noticed. The V Star 950 Tourer achieves fuel economy up to an estimated 47 mpg with a fuel tank that holds 4.5 gallons of gas. Chassis / Suspension: The steel double-cradle frame is long and low, contributing to the bike’s spacious 95.9-inch (2,435 mm) overall length and 66.3-inch wheelbase. That means a great ride to go along with the great looks. The seat height is a mere 26.6 inches off the pavement, one of the lowest around, and a fuel tank that’s made as narrow as possible where it meets the seat, it is easy for most riders to put both feet firmly on the ground. Fenders are real steel, front and rear. That adds to the quality look and feel, and makes customization easier. The big 18-inch front wheel helps deliver this cruiser motorcycle’s sporty handling characteristics and “Sport Classic” cruiser looks. The low-profile 130/70-18 tire is mounted on an 8-spoke lightweight aluminum wheel. The 170/70-16 bias ply rear tire adds a beefy look and helps transfer all that torque and power to the pavement. Large 320 mm front and 298 mm rear discs provide strong braking capacity with excellent feel. Front forks feature big 41 mm tubes, and rear suspension is a bottom-link-type monocross shock. Settings are calibrated to deliver a plush ride that is increasingly firm as the suspension is compressed for good handling and comfort over bigger bumps in the road. The V Star 950 Tourer has a wonderfully light feel. Surprisingly, even though it has a full-size chassis, the bike weighs just 657 pounds wet, with a full tank of gas and all fluids. Additional Features: The large-diameter meter is mounted on the fuel tank for a traditional look. Meter functions include speedometer, fuel level warning light, oil level warning light, and odometer with two trip meter functions, fuel trip meter, and clock display. The LCD display illumination can be adjusted using a right side handlebar switch. The V Star 950 Tourer is ready to roll out with a windshield, leather-wrapped hard sidebags, and a passenger backrest.

ninja 636 FAST CLEAN A LOT of EXTRASS NINJA ZX-6R OFFERS RIDERS THAT SPECIAL KAWASAKI FLAVOR SO APPEALING TO HARDCORE SPORTBIKE ENTHUSIASTS There?s rarely a magazine comparison test completed among middle-weight sportbikes that doesn?t sing the praises of Kawasaki?s Ninja ZX-6R, a model so well attuned to its ultimate purchaser ? the serious sport rider who sometimes finds themself on a local track ? that one can only assume what the company?s engineers and designers do with their weekends. This popular unit features ultra-aerodynamic bodywork with Ram Air, GP-style swingarm, underseat exhaust system, six-spoke wheels, petal-style disc brakes, inverted forks, and a powerful engine that accomplishes what it sets out to do. This year, Kawasaki has also added a ZX-6R ?Special Edition? model to this mid-size family. To differentiate its look the ?Special Edition? features Titanium Silver paint highlighted by Tribal pattern graphics and an attractive high-tech wheel finish. The streamlined look of the ZX-6R is shared with its racing-homologated sibling, the ZX-6RR. Its fairing helps to divide the air stream farther ahead of the motorcycle; by moving the ?bubble? of still air farther forward in the cockpit, so the rider experiences less buffeting around the head and shoulders. The point of convergence ? where the divided air streams comes together behind the rider ? is critical to aerodynamic efficiency, so Kawasaki engineers designed the tail section to smoothly blend the air together while minimizing turbulence. The result is quicker roll-on acceleration and higher top speeds at the race track, as well as enhanced rider comfort and control. The body work includes a ZX-10R-style central Ram Air duct and a flush-surface LED tail light, which makes the ZX-6R more visible to drivers of other vehicles. It also features an aerodynamic ZX-10R-style front fender for a strong Ninja family resemblance. From the cockpit, the Ninja ZX-6R rider will notice several leading-edge features that put this bike at the forefront of design and performance. Foremost is the split-seam fuel tank/airbox cover. The rear half is the actual fuel tank, designed to fit neatly between the frame spars and down behind the engine?s fuel injection system, while the front half covers a quick-access air box. By centralizing the fuel mass near the center of the bike, chassis responsiveness is enhanced ? weight transfers from turn to turn are lighter, and the chassis is exceptionally stable under acceleration and braking. The advanced split-seam design also enabled engineers to make the airbox larger, thus enhancing engine performance. It also makes filter access quick and easy. Plus, a depression in the top of the fuel tank enables the rider to tuck in for improved aerodynamics. The final tribute to aerodynamic efficiency is the under-seat muffler, which gives the Ninja ZX-6R a slim, racy look. Exhilarating Power and Performance No sportbike can garner mass approval on good looks alone, and here again, the Ninja ZX-6R sets standards of performance for the middle-weight class. For that, the engine includes a fuel injection system with 38mm oval-shaped sub-throttle valves fed by twin injectors and Ram Air. The Ninja ZX-6R utilizes oval-shaped sub-throttle technology. Combined with the Ram Air design, the oval-shaped throttle bodies increase airflow without making the fuel delivery assembly wider ? for maximum intake efficiency while helping to maintain a slim chassis profile. Large intake and exhaust valves, optimum cam profiles and an exhaust valve integrated with the muffler provide exceptional low and mid-range response of the 636cc engine. Also, the 32-bit engine control unit has sufficient memory for controlling the exhaust valve and second set of fuel injectors. The Ninja ZX-6R features a durable, smooth-shifting six-speed transmission, and also utilizes a back-torque limiting clutch, which helps to reduce rear-wheel hop that may occur when downshifting a high-rpm. Chassis Features The matte-black aluminum frame features a short wheelbase combined with a long, braced aluminum swingarm, to give the Ninja ZX-6R superb cornering performance and high-speed stability. The fully adjustable Showa fork delivers excellent ride quality and outstanding cornering performance. At the rear, the UNI-TRAK linkage ratios provide linear action, and the shock settings further enhance ride quality and track performance. Radial-mounted, four-piston front brake calipers deliver exceptional feel and performance; four independent brake pads are used ? one for each piston ? for more even wear and improved heat resistance. The 300mm petal-style front discs are 5.5mm thick for high heat capacity and the front brake master cylinder uses direct action for better rider feedback. Also, the caliper for the 220mm rear disc brake mounts directly to the swingarm, negating the need for an independent brake tie-rod. The Ninja ZX-6R rides on light, six-spoke wheels shod with 120/65ZR17 front and 180/55ZR17 rear tires for exceptional cornering performance. The Cockpit The riding position is also based on the Ninja ZX-10R. By pulling back the steering head assembly, the distance between the handlebars and footpegs is reduced, which provides the rider with an idealized position for performance riding. Combined with the frame dimensions, seat and fuel tank, the rider sits ?in? the bike, rather than ?on? it. The Ninja ZX-6R?s racing-style instrument panel features a bar-type LCD tachometer, digital LCD speedometer, stopwatch-style lap timer and adjustable shift indicator lamp, which includes Off, Low and Bright settings. A digital temperature gauge, clock and tripmeter are also included.

2006 Kawasaki Ninja 250R with ONLY 9200 Miles! She has a few flaws but she runs great! The right side muffler has some scratches and the right side bodywork has a few small scratches. The left side middle fairing has a crack. Left handlebar is slightly bent. None of these affect the operation of the bike, they’re purely cosmetic. Carbs were thoroughly cleaned AND re-jetted and she got a new battery. All controls are fully functional and there’s plenty of tread left on the Dunlop Tires. This is a great bike for commuting, buzzing around town, riding the canyons and the coast or teaching someone to ride. It has a low seat height, is lightweight, and has easy to manage power. It’s a blast in the canyons! Registered until January 2015. Test rides with a valid motorcycle license and refundable cash deposit. Bring a helmet if you have one. Price is reflective of condition and low mileage. Cash only, no Nigerian scams. More pictures on request. From Motorcyclist Magazine: Sportbike chauvinists who insist there's no replacement for displacement have probably never enjoyed the massively entertaining experience of riding a small, light bike that corners like a rat in a sewer pipe and doesn't come alive until the tach needle swings into five-digit territory. Kawasaki's Ninja 250R is such a bike. Look beyond its teacup-size pistons and its unintimidating personality and you'll find the beating heart of a very small, very fierce lion—one that can also be a pussycat when necessary. The Ninja 250R reached American shores in 1986, parachuting into the heat of the battle raging among manufacturers to produce the quickest and fastest bikes available to the public. Its 248cc twin-cylinder engine had a dizzying 14,000-rpm redline, and although some riders complained about how long it took to get there, many simultaneously praised its civility while putting around town off the cams. Mid-15-second quarter-miles didn't raise any eyebrows nor did the prosaic damper-rod fork and Uni-Trak rear shock, but fuel economy to shame every car in 1986 (and most bikes) grabbed the attention of commuters. Kawasaki likes to get the most from its models, many of which have been in the lineup for decades, and the Ninjette is no exception. From 1988 to 2007 changes were minor, including smaller carbs, more ignition advance, higher compression, and final-drive gearing changes, all aimed at silencing the critics of the slow-revving engine by making it snappier. The stylists got their hands on the 250R too, clothing it in au courant sportbike bodywork that led many to mistake it for one of Kawasaki's larger sportbikes as it zipped by. The big changes came in 2008, with all-new bodywork, an engine retuned for more midrange, 17-inch wheels, and better suspension and brakes. Despite its single-minded sporty look, the 250R's personality isn't just split; it's fractured into several pieces. It's a standout in the bang-for-buck category as a club racer or trackday bike. Few other commuter bikes beat it for economy and style. The 250R even has modest touring chops. Toss a pair of soft bags over the seat, add a tank bag and a backpack, and you're sport-touring on the cheap. Or go nuts and hit the highway hard, like the rider on the 250 Ninja who bagged 12th place in the 2003 Iron Butt Rally, covering 11,186 miles in 11 days. You can't get much more hard core than that. True to their original intent, a lot of 250Rs start their lives under beginning riders, and some used ones tend to show the scars. Cosmetic damage to the bodywork is the most common manifestation, along with bent bars, footpegs, and levers. Surprisingly for an engine that routinely revs so high, there isn't much that goes wrong with it—at least not consistently. The inattention of the aforementioned rookies means you should ask about oil changes and valve-clearance checks and whether they were done on time and by whom; don't be shy about asking for proof in the form of receipts. On the flip side, keep an eye peeled for the subtle tip-offs that point to hard trackday use, like beveled footpegs, mismatched bodywork, safety-wire holes in hardware, scuff marks on the mufflers, and tech-inspection stickers on the windscreen. Cheers Runs like a hamster in a wheel, as much fun as some bikes three times its size. Dictionary definition of "pocket rocket." Jeers Too rev-happy for some riders, too displacement-challenged for others. Hard to earn street cred on a 250. Watch for Dead batteries, gunked-up carbs in beginner bikes that got parked after their owners moved on to some other pursuit. Verdict If riding a 250R doesn't make you break out in a grin, you're in the wrong sport. TERMS Please ask any questions before bidding, as all sales are final. Payment accepted through PayPal only.

You are looking at a Brand New 2012 Yamaha V-Star 950 TOURER ~ BLUE~1 Year Mechanical Warranty Brand New Touring motorcycle! Windshield, backrest, and hard bags!! DESTINATION: WHEREVERFully equipped with windshield, passenger backrest and leather-wrapped hard sidebags, the moment you pull your V Star 950 onto the on-ramp, the highway is yours. Standard FeaturesKey Features: The V Star 950 Tourer rolls out with a windshield, leather-wrapped hard sidebags, and a passenger backrest all standard, ready for the open road or the commute to school or work. V Star 950 is the benchmark in the entry cruiser touring class, appealing to seasoned riders as well as those looking for a friendly entry-level cruiser. The air-cooled V-twin delivers plenty of distinctive, big-cruiser character and pulsing torque feel. Seat height is an extra-low 26.6 inches. The full-sized chassis has a long, low look and provides spacious comfort. Handling is sporty and responsive, great for curvy back roads and commuting around town as well as open-highway cruising. No wonder V-Twin® Magazine named V Star 950 the 2009 “Metric of the Year”! The 942 cc 60-degree V-twin engine is both simple and sophisticated. Sure, there’s no-fuss air cooling for traditional looks. But inside you’ll find the reason for the surprisingly spirited performance: four-valve cylinder heads, ceramic-composite-lined cylinders, forged aluminum pistons, and fuel injection. The meticulously tuned 2-into-1 exhaust system has a throaty exhaust note, and also 3-way catalyst technology to reduce air pollution. The carefully designed chassis contributes to an exceptionally light feeling riders are sure to appreciate. The double-cradle steel main frame offers an ideal rigidity balance in the longitudinal, lateral, and torsional directions, using the engine as a stressed member. With the engine mounting position slightly forward for optimum front-rear weight distribution and its large, 18-inch front wheel, V Star 950 Tourer has outstanding handling performance. The V Star 950 Tourer achieves fuel economy up to an estimated 47 mpg with a fuel tank that holds 4.5 gallons of gas. Fenders are real steel, front and rear. That adds to the quality look and feel, and makes customization easier. Engine: The 57.5-cubic-inch (942 cc) engine is an air-cooled SOHC 60-degree V twin. With four valves per cylinder, a pent-roof shaped combustion chamber, and 9.0:1 compression ratio, this engine has been carefully designed to produce excellent power characteristics – and best-in-class acceleration. To keep friction loss to a minimum and help the engine achieve the ideal performance characteristics, special compact roller-type rocker arms with needle bearings are used. These also reduce top-end weight for excellent mass centralization. The combustion chamber shape was precisely engineered to direct the fuel air charge into the center of the piston for faster combustion and maximum power. Ceramic-composite-plated cylinders provide excellent heat dissipation and reduced oil consumption. High-quality forged aluminum pistons have a lightweight, high strength compact design that contributes to reduce vibration. The designers realized that the engine’s V twin character was so pleasing on its own that a counterbalancer was unnecessary. This also contributes to simplicity and less operating noise. Sophisticated fuel injection is used on the V Star 950 Tourer. The injectors are four-hole, two-directional types with spray aimed at the valve surfaces. That produces good fuel atomization for faster and more complete combustion which contributes to excellent drivability. The fuel injection system also adopts an ISC (Idling Speed Control) valve for outstanding idling stability. Lubrication is provided by a simple, reliable wet sump system. The 5-speed transmission is all new, with a smooth shifting feeling, and gear ratios spaced to let the rider take full advantage of the engine’s torque characteristics and enjoy comfortable cruising at highway speeds. Naturally, power is efficiently transferred to the rear wheel using simple, quiet belt drive. The engine’s look is highly detailed, with polished cylinder fins and beautifully chrome-plated cylinder head covers, for an exceptional appearance sure to be noticed. The V Star 950 Tourer achieves fuel economy up to an estimated 47 mpg with a fuel tank that holds 4.5 gallons of gas. Chassis / Suspension: The steel double-cradle frame is long and low, contributing to the bike’s spacious 95.9-inch (2,435 mm) overall length and 66.3-inch wheelbase. That means a great ride to go along with the great looks. The seat height is a mere 26.6 inches off the pavement, one of the lowest around, and a fuel tank that’s made as narrow as possible where it meets the seat, it is easy for most riders to put both feet firmly on the ground. Fenders are real steel, front and rear. That adds to the quality look and feel, and makes customization easier. The big 18-inch front wheel helps deliver this cruiser motorcycle’s sporty handling characteristics and “Sport Classic” cruiser looks. The low-profile 130/70-18 tire is mounted on an 8-spoke lightweight aluminum wheel. The 170/70-16 bias ply rear tire adds a beefy look and helps transfer all that torque and power to the pavement. Large 320 mm front and 298 mm rear discs provide strong braking capacity with excellent feel. Front forks feature big 41 mm tubes, and rear suspension is a bottom-link-type monocross shock. Settings are calibrated to deliver a plush ride that is increasingly firm as the suspension is compressed for good handling and comfort over bigger bumps in the road. The V Star 950 Tourer has a wonderfully light feel. Surprisingly, even though it has a full-size chassis, the bike weighs just 657 pounds wet, with a full tank of gas and all fluids. Additional Features: The large-diameter meter is mounted on the fuel tank for a traditional look. Meter functions include speedometer, fuel level warning light, oil level warning light, and odometer with two trip meter functions, fuel trip meter, and clock display. The LCD display illumination can be adjusted using a right side handlebar switch. The V Star 950 Tourer is ready to roll out with a windshield, leather-wrapped hard sidebags, and a passenger backrest.

800x600 1975 HONDA CB750F SUPER SPORT – ALL ORIGINAL SURVIVOR! 3,126 ORIGINAL MILES, FRAME # CB750F-1007544, Manufactured 2/75 800x600 This Honda 750 Super Sport epitomizes the late 1970’s sportbike/cruiser that became a permanent part of Honda’s reputation and still represents the classic style… Please scroll past the description and terms for more photos! The condition of this machine is highly original and un-restored. It has 3,126 original miles from new. The frame and engine numbers are factory correct and original. It is the 750 cc engine. The gearbox is also original to the machine. This Honda 750 Super Sport is completely original and has never been apart. It is in un-restored and in very nice condition, and is a true historical document that should be preserved and ridden. This machine has been in my collection, is started on a regular basis, and ridden occasionally to make sure everything still works. When I purchased the bike, it had been sitting for some time in completely original condition. I went through the machine top to bottom and checked all of the major engine, transmission, and braking components for functionality and safety. The gas tank was still in beautiful condition, with no wear evident, the carburetors were inspected, cleaned, and re-installed, the air filter checked, all fluids changed, and both front and rear brakes were taken apart cleaned, re-built, and re-installed, the consequence of the bike sitting idle for a long period of time. The tires on the front and rear are the original type and size for the machine and appear to be the original tires to the machine. The tires and tubes have NOT been replaced and, while not as soft and pliable as when they were new, are in amazing original condition. The rims are also the original Honda rims, as are the spokes, and overall, the wheels are in very nice original condition. The seat is original and the upholstery is in perfect condition with no rips, tears, or wear of any kind, and the Honda script on the rear of the seat is sharp and clear. The engine and transmission are in excellent interior condition due to the low mileage and absence of any type of harsh conditions or abuse throughout its life. The 4 into 1 Honda exhaust is also original to the machine, and is in beautiful condition. A complete cleaning and detailing was performed, and although detailing on an original machine is never completed, the overall condition of the finishes is remarkable considering the age of the machine, and is in line with the low original mileage. The aluminum parts are in excellent condition overall, but due to the originality, I did not want to go too far polishing any parts. The paint is the original Candy Sapphire Blue, and is visually stunning. The original decals and badges are still applied to the gas tank, fairing and sidecovers. All of the plastic fairings, covers, etc. are in excellent condition and not in need of any type of repair. The 750 Super Sport on the road is very easy to handle, and rides down the road very tight, with no shakes, shimmies, or rattles. It shifts and accelerates smoothly and holds the road as it should. This bike is really great to ride and very fast for the period. There is absolutely NOTHING that needs to be done to this machine to ride it occasionally and enjoy it as a showpiece. Unlike a lot of collector motorcycles for sale on the internet, this 750 is ready to ride and not in need of any expensive service once you get it home. I am always looking for new machines to add to my collection. Please contact me if you have something interesting available! TERMS: $500 DEPOSIT WITHIN 48 HOURS OF AUCTION CLOSE. BALANCE OF AUCTION AMOUNT MUST BE PAID BY CASH IN PERSON, BANK TO BANK TRANSFER, OR CERTIFIED FUNDS (WITH VERIFICATION) ONLY WITHIN 7 DAYS OF AUCTION CLOSE. SORRY, NO C.O.D. AND NO PAYPAL.

For more on the Honda 750 Super Sport, read on past the photos… 800x600 CB750F Super Sport History: Honda of Japan introduced the CB750 motorcycle to the US and European markets in 1969 after experiencing success with their smaller motorcycles. The bike was targeted directly at the US market after Honda officials, including founder Soichiro Honda, repeatedly met with US dealers and understood the opportunity for a larger bike. Under development for a year, the CB750 offered two unprecedented features, a front disc brake and a transverse straight-4 engine with an overhead camshaft, neither of which was previously available on a mainstream, affordable production bike. These two features, along with the introductory price of $1,495 ($9,475 in current money), gave the CB750 a considerable advantage over its competition, particularly its British rivals. Cycle magazine called the CB750 "the most sophisticated production bike ever" upon its introduction. Cycle World called it a masterpiece, highlighting Honda's painstaking durability testing, the bike's 120 mph (190 km/h) top speed, the fade-free performance of the braking, the comfortable ride and excellent instrumentation. The CB750 was the first modern four-cylinder machine from a mainstream manufacturer, and the term superbike was coined to describe it. The bike offered other important features that added to its compelling value: electric starter, kill switch, dual mirrors, flashing turn signals, easily maintained valves and overall smoothness and freedom from vibration both underway and at a standstill; later models (1991 on) included maintenance-free hydraulic valves. On the other hand, the bike was difficult to get on its center stand and tended to throw chain oil onto its muffler. Unable to gauge demand for the new bike accurately, Honda limited its initial investment in the production dies for the CB750 by using a technique called permanent mold casting (often erroneously referred to as sandcasting) rather than diecasting for the engines – the factory being unsure of the bike's reception. The bike remained in the Honda lineup for ten years, with sales totaling over 400,000 in its life span. The CB750 is sometimes referred to as a Universal Japanese Motorcycle or UJM. The Discovery Channel ranked the Honda CB750 third among the top ten greatest motorbikes of all time. Specifications: Claimed power: 58hp @ 8,000rpm Top speed: 114mph (period test) Engine: 736cc air-cooled SOHC transverse-mounted inline four Weight (dry): 449lb (227kg) Fuel capacity/MPG: 4.8gal / 35-55mpg Price then: $2,152 And more insight from articles on the 750 SS… The Honda CB750F Super Sport was born out of Honda's desire to regain its position as a motorcycle pacemaker. When Henry Ford launched the Model T in 1908, there was nothing else like it, and the T established a design template that defined the automobile for more than a decade. The problem? Ford was still building the T in 1928, and the market had moved on. By continuing to manufacture the same basic car, Ford maximized the benefits of mass production, but at the cost of market leadership. After years of snapping at Henry’s heels, the Dodge Brothers, Louis Chevrolet and the rest streaked out front. Something similar happened to Honda in the 1970s. The 1969 Honda CB750 Four mapped out the future for motorcycles. And like the Model T, it stayed in production for just a little too long. By 1975, the Kawasaki Z1 with its 903cc DOHC engine had leapfrogged ahead of the CB750. And waiting in the wings were The Suzuki GS750 and the Kawasaki KZ750, both aimed squarely at the market Honda had built, and creating along the way what was to become known as the Universal Japanese Motorcycle or UJM: the air-cooled, 2-valve, DOHC across-the-frame inline four. Honda’s response to the challenge was conservative. In 1975, the 750 K5 with its distinctive stacked mufflers was joined by the Honda CB750F Super Sport with a sportier 4-into-1 exhaust. The Honda CB750F also wore a new, slimmer-looking (but 0.3-gallon larger) gas tank with a recessed filler covered by a lockable plate, and a disc brake replaced the rear wheel’s mediocre drum brake. In spite of its radical-looking (for Honda) exhaust, changes to the basic 750 Four plot were minor. Reduced trail and a longer swingarm improved straight-line stability, while a stiffer frame and suspension changes improved handling in the corners. And although the engine was claimed to be unchanged, the new exhaust system brought minor adjustments to valve timing and carburetion, which, according to Cycle magazine, also eliminated the K-bike’s off-idle flat spot. Whether it was the new exhaust (and revised air box) or some undisclosed engine modifications, the F produced considerably more power than the K-bike. Cycle magazine recorded 58hp at the rear wheel compared with 49hp for the 1973 K3. This, combined with lower gearing, meant a standing quarter in the high 12s instead of the 13s. On the road, the improvements made for a comfortable ride and precise steering: “… it handles better than any of the other Japanese superbikes,” said Cycle. Fuel consumption was slightly worse at 43mpg versus the K’s 45mpg, perhaps because of the lower gearing and a 12-pound weight increase. Then the 1977 Honda CB750F2 Super Sport, the CB750F2, was introduced in 1977. The F2 featured Honda’s ComStar wheels with dual disc brakes at the front while the 4-into-1 exhaust exited through a new muffler with a slightly deeper exhaust note. Changes inside the engine (larger valves and more radical cams) improved power to around 60hp at the rear wheel, but at higher rpm (now 8,500 compared with the F’s 8,000rpm) and with the redline stretched to 9,500rpm. To emphasize its sportiness, the engine was powder coated black. At over 540 pounds with a half tank of gas, the F2 was also the heaviest 750 so far (with the exception of the 750A automatic), and 10 pounds heavier than the 4-pipe touring K model. Yet in spite of the extra weight, and the fact that the 28mm Keihins now had accelerator pumps, fuel consumption improved slightly to 45mpg. Most testers considered the F2 to be the best Honda 750 so far, the result of continual refinement and improvement that had created a comfortable, fine handling motorcycle with performance that just about kept pace with the GS750. All was not perfect in paradise, however. During a 10,000-mile extended test, Cycle Guide’s F2 dropped a valve, destroying a piston and the cylinder head. The cause, they speculated, was insufficient heat treatment of the valve. Testers also emphasized some problems with the 750’s transmission, notably missed shifts, false neutrals and a tendency to drop out of gear. Also noted was a lack of steering stability. The life of a test mule includes some pretty vigorous riding, and the dropped valve occurred after a series of full throttle drag strip takeoffs attempting to verify Honda’s claim that the F2 was capable of sub-13 second standing quarters. “We didn’t abuse the CB750,” concluded Cycle Guide’s review, “but we pushed it to its limits — and then just past.” Further, the F2’s ComStar wheels — light alloy rims riveted to pressed steel struts — were largely unloved. Honda claimed they embodied the advantages of both cast and spoke wheels without any of the disadvantages. Few liked the appearance of the struts or the rivets, and the latter would prove to be troublesome. Rivets can loosen over time, compromising the integrity of the wheels. If you’re considering buying any Honda with ComStar wheels, check them carefully. While used Super Sports aren’t exactly rare, good ones are. As the sportiest bike in Honda’s mid-1970s stable, they seem to have received more than their fair share of abuse, victims, perhaps, of over-enthusiastic owners. But parts are plentiful, and thanks to their simple build they’re easy to work on and generally hugely reliable, making them a great usable classic. MC Motorcycle Classics magazine, by Richard Backus, May/June 2010 It could certainly be argued, that the progenitor of the 1970s superbikes was the four-cylinder Honda CB750, a machine first introduced in 1969 and the precursor to the 1976 Honda CB750F Super Sport featured here. Honda definitely wowed the motorcycling community with the CB750, but it didn’t hold the top spot for long. By the time Honda was marketing the CB750 K4 in 1974, plenty of luster had worn off the model. For one thing, competing manufacturers were producing faster motorcycles — like the aforementioned Z1. And thanks to the 1973 Arab oil embargo, fuel economy had become an important concern in the North American market. In response, Honda detuned the CB’s 736cc power plant — increasing efficiency, but decreasing horsepower. Where the 1969 CB750 produced around 67 horses, for 1974 there were only about 50 ponies at the rear wheel. By comparison, the 1974 Z1 produced a claimed 82 horsepower. The CB750, once the lightning rod for a new generation of Superbikes, had suddenly become the old man in the group. Much of the performance market Honda had created was lost to them, and in 1975 Honda wasn’t even going to offer a standard CB750. Instead, Honda planned to spice things up by replacing the four-pipe CB750 with the 1975 Honda CB750F Super Sport. The Super Sport was an improved machine, complete with a four-into-one header and muffler system, revised frame geometry featuring a lengthened rear swingarm, a rear disc brake and a longer gas tank with a new seat and rear cowl. There were yet more changes. Honda returned some of the lost horsepower to the 736cc engine through various internal improvements, including an increased compression ratio (from 9:1 to 9.2:1) and revised cam timing. In Honda’s world, the Super Sport, with 58 horsepower, would be the company road burner while the newly introduced liquid-cooled, horizontally-opposed four-cylinder Honda GL1000 Gold Wing would take over as Honda’s big touring bike. CB loyalists weren’t going to let the four-pipe CB750 disappear, however, and for 1975 Honda ended up offering all three big models. Enter the Super Sport Marcos Markoulatos, a mechanic at Baron MINI in Merriam, Kan., is a fan of 1970s Japanese motorcycles. Born one year after the Honda CB750F Super Sport was introduced, Marcos got his first motorcycle, a 1984 Yamaha Maxim 700, when he was 22. He had put an extra $1,000 down on a house he and a friend were buying, and his friend gave him the Yamaha. And while the Yamaha was his first “motorcycle,” it definitely was not his first powered two-wheeler. When he was 14, and for the two years after, he could regularly be seen riding a Honda Express moped around his hometown. Marcos didn’t like the Maxim 700’s upright, cruiser-style handlebar, so he swapped it for a flat, straight drag bar and rode the Yam for three or four years. But then he discovered offroading and started spending more time playing with a Jeep, and the Maxim saw less and less use. It wasn’t long before the motorcycle was for sale. “I’d had my fun with the Yamaha, and even though it was a great bike, I wasn’t really in love with it,” Marcos says. A couple of years later, though, and Marcos was itching to ride again. “Motorcycling was something I couldn’t kick, and I started to look around on the Internet,” he explains. Not entirely sure what he was looking for, Marcos found himself researching 1970s Japanese motorcycles. “Japanese machines of that era seem to be plentiful and dependable — economical to own and purchase,” Marcos says. Eventually, he decided what he really wanted was a Suzuki GS1000S Wes Cooley Replica, a particularly rare machine manufactured for only two years, in 1979 and 1980. When Marcos couldn’t find one, he looked into building his own version of a Wes Cooley Replica, but learned that would be a costly proposition. And then, as fate would have it, he was talking motorcycles with a co-worker who said he had a 1972 Honda CB750K2 sitting in warehouse storage. It had been stored for 15 years, Marcos says, and he bought it for pennies on the dollar, but there was no title and the engine was stuck. None of that really worried Marcos, however, and he set about getting the Honda running, installing a used but clean set of Flame Sunrise Orange side covers and a matching gas tank. Marcos got the bike tuned up and ready to ride just in time to have to put it away for the winter late in 2008; he didn’t get to ride it until the spring of 2009. Lucking out In the interim, still searching Craigslist and other Internet sites, Marcos discovered our feature 1976 Honda CB750F Super Sport for sale in Chanute, Kan., just two hours southeast of his home in Lawrence, Kan. “Basically, I was addicted to searching Craigslist, and the (CB750F) was close and the price was right,” he says. At $1,800 the price wasn’t bottom dollar, but the seller was the second owner and the bike was obviously very well cared for. All of the factory decals are in place, the plastic lenses are crystal clear, and many of the yellow paint dots, applied at the factory during assembly, are still clearly visible on various nuts and bolts. Surprisingly, the CB750F gained some weight over the standard CB750 — a little bit more than 12 pounds. Yet a few extra pounds didn’t bother Cycle magazine’s tester, and they were quite happy with how the machine handled. In its May 1975 issue, Cycle said: “The CB750F, tighter gearing not withstanding, is going to get shaded in a straight-line contest of speed with, say a Z-1. But it handles better than any of the other Japanese Superbikes. Despite the longer wheelbase and stability-oriented steering geometry, the Honda CB750F handles like a bike at least a hundred pounds lighter.” Press Reports “The fact remains that it will just whip the tires off your typical, tricked-out café racer. Highbars, turn-indicators and all, it really is a super sporting motorcycle.” — Cycle, May 1975 “Performance-conscious riders will enjoy the added power and acceleration which have brought the machine back to the fringes of the Superbike category, with the added benefit of improved handling.” — Cycle Guide, July 1975 “It handles better than any other standard large Japanese bike I know, which makes it more fun than Honda 750s have ever been.” — Cycle World, November 1975 “The Honda 750F aims to please on too broad a scale to be a truly great motorcycle in any single category. But to label that as bad would go against the fact that Honda has a sold a huge number of K models since 1971.” — Rider, Winter 1976 “The acceleration, handling and braking are spirited enough to keep your adrenaline pumping.” — Cycle Guide, March, 1977 Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 The Honda CB750F Super Sport was born out of Honda's desire to regain its position as a motorcycle pacemaker.

To this day, if you can find one in good condition, the Sabre is a great ride, even after 30 years, but finding one in good condition is the trick. 1984 HondaV65 Sabre After 30 years, the Honda VF1100S is no longer near the top of the horsepower heap, but it does what it does well enough to remain an imposing machine for day trips or touring or just knocking around Wisconsin's beautiful back roads. Back in the early half of the 1980s, the 1100 cc powerhouse used in the V65 Sabre models was the top of the Honda V-Four line. With four valves per cylinder, double overhead cams, liquid-cooling, four carbs and six speeds with shaft final drive, the V65 powerplant and powertrain was one of the most impressive performance packages Honda had ever put on the market. With the engine producing a claimed 121 horsepower, the calculated top speed at the 10,000 rpm redline in sixth gear is enough to make even experienced riders weak in the knees: 177 mph! Heck, the Sabre can break the 55 mph speed limit in first gear! The claimed numbers appear to be backed up by actual period road test data: Cycle magazine's staff achieved 0-60 mph in 3.04 seconds, a standing start quarter-mile in 11.2 seconds with a terminal speed of 121.69 mph. Despite those imposing performance numbers, the Sabre is predictable, well-mannered and easy to ride.

1983 Honda V-65.I purchased this bike from a aerospace engineer in San Diego. He took extremely good care of the bike. I have ridden this bike for quite some time and for me is a real sacrifice to let go of it (I got married and need to sell it.) This motorcycle just needs some work on the clutch (a motorcycle technician will charge you about 300 dollars or a lot less for the work) or you can do it yourself if you are able to do that kind of work) (oil have to be bled because is an hydraulic clutch. This is a very fast bike ( the motor is a 4 cylinder 1,100 cc) (that's like putting a Honda car motor in a motorcycle frame) . You will leave anyone riding a Japanese rice rocket like a telephone pole! This bike was made in the era of the Japanese super-bikes when people building them took pride in the quality control and incredibly precise tooling which the Japanese achieved in that era, stunning all of the European competition of the time, with the possible exception of some of the German bikes like the BMW) This quality control and precise tooling is responsible for the legendary reliability of this motors) (I have seen a motor like this going over 300,000 miles!) (this motor has a lot lower miles than that (it has 26,597 miles) You cannot find something like this anymore. This motor will run forever) The electrical system works(see some pictures) and motor runs perfectly, it also has a new gel battery (A gel battery is a lot better than the original battery ) For an additional 300 dollars (what it will approximately take to fix the clutch) you can ride one of the fastest bikes you could ever dream of riding.(Torque is flat and extremely high across the band of gears.)(Or, if you are a mechanic or so inclined you can fix this for next to nothing!) by the way this bike has 5 gears and is shaft drive, which reduces maintenance of the chain,etc) I have the pink slip. Please contact me at: (818) 488-4886 (please call or text me with any questions) Customer will pickup. Thanks!I have enclosed some info on this bike:Make ModelHonda VF 1100-C V-65Year1983EngineLiquid cooled, four stroke, 90°V-four cylinder, D.O.H.C., 4 valve per cylinder.Capacity1098Bore x Stroke79.5 x 55.3 mmCompression Ratio10.5:1Induction4 x 36 mm Ignition / StartingDigital transistorized / electricMax Power116 hp @ 7500 rpm (rear 100 hp 72.9 kW @ 9500 rpm)Max Torque94 N-m @ 7500 rpmTransmission / Drive6 Speed / shaftGear Ratio1st 39/17, 1.71 2nd 34/21.1.62 3rd 31/24,1.29 4th 29/27, 1.07 5th 26/29, 0.90 6th 24/32, 0.75FrameDouble-down tube, full-cradle frame; tube/box-section steel swing armFront SuspensionLeading-axle, air-assisted fork with 41 mm forks. 150-mm wheel travelRear SuspensionTwin shock adjustable for spring p reload rebound and compression damping, 105-mm wheel travel.Front Brakes2 x 270=mm disc 2 piston calipersRear BrakesSingle 282-mm disc 2-piston caliperFront Tyre110/90 -18Rear Tyre140/80 -16Seat Height31.6 in / 803-mmDry-Weight246 kg / 545 lbFuel Capacity20 LitersConsumption average15.3 km/litStanding ¼ Mile 10.75 sec / 126 mp/h Honda's 1983 V65 Magna hit the street like a 600-pound chrome sledgehammer. Americans had built a long-term relationship with horsepower and high style on four wheels, but a motorcycle with acres of both was news. This was more than a new model. The V65 made big muscle look cool. Thus the power cruiser was born. "The best part of the V65," according to Cycle magazine's March 1983 road test, " is a mid-range punch that would do justice to Larry Holmes." The liquid-cooled, 1098cc, 90-degree V-4 engine delivered a staggering flow of power from 1500 rpm to its 10,000 rpm redline. But how quick was it? On October 3, 1982, Honda brought drag-strip maestro Jay "Pee-Wee" Gleason and a standard V65 to Southern California's Orange County International Raceway to find out. Gleason's 10.92 — second 1/4-mile sprint made the V65 America's fastest production street machine, inspiring ads with one powerfully simple headline: Bad News Travels Fast.For street riders, the good news was Honda engineers made sure the bike was easy to live with as well as fast. The four-cam, 16-valve V-4 cruised through a daily commute as happily as it devoured drag strips. Around town, the V65 was surpassingly agile for its size. A durable, diaphragm-type hydraulic clutch modulated power to the shaft drive, and one-way sprag clutch kept downshifts from chirping the rear tire. Anti-dive valving in the 41mm front fork helped stabilize the chassis under braking. An overdrive top gear in the six-speed transmission kept the V-4 serene at freeway speeds. Tired of cruising your hometown? Strap on some saddlebags and the Magna was comfortable enough to cruise to some town three or four states away. Riders expected such well-mannered versatility from Honda. The V65's magnetism came from its totally radical fusion of bad boy good looks and world-class quickness. According to Cycle's March, 1983 test, "Its horsepower translates directly into an immediate gut-wrenching rush, unmatched by any other production street machine." To anyone who ever felt it, that V65 rush boils down to one word. Unforgettable.Honda builds a motorcycle mean enough for those guys who are tough enough to dip your heart out with a wooden spoon Don't be deceived. The 1100 Magna is not just another Special. Writing off the V65 as simply another boulevard parade float is like calling a 10 inch switchblade a pocket knife. It's true, but misses the point entirely.The term "Special" suggests highly styled motorcycles that go limp wristed when it's time to perform. But the V65 is a urban streetfighter through and through, a bike that can kick almost anything flat in a stoplight to stoplight brawl. What makes this Special so special? In a word, the engine. If you talk horsepower, the Magna speaks your language. Its horsepower translates directly into an immediate gut wrenching rush unmatched by any other production'. street machine.To a man, the cycle staff raved about the engine. With its wonderfully potent and flexible powerplant, this big four is a strong and willing worker that hums along happily at 1500 rpm or sings fortissimo at the 10,000 rpm redline. The best part of the V65 is a mid range punch that would do justice to Larry Holmes. Whack the throttle open at 5000 rpm in first gear and the front wheel claws for the sky while the Magna catapults forward. These antics are interesting enough when you’re mounted on an open class motocrosser but when a 589 pound motorcycle with a wheelbase of nearly 63 inches takes off like a carrier based F-14, it gets your full attention. magna side and instrument view.jpg (29395 bytes) full magna in motion side.jpg (25449 bytes)Honda built the V65 engine with technology carried over from the V45, but the big Magna has all new hardware,. it shares no parts with the 750s. Though the designs are virtually identical, everything has been scaled to 1100cc specs.The V65 benefits from Honda's extremely compact Vee engine design; at 17.4 inches, the 1100's engine is barely an inch wider than the narrow 750 V four. The Magna’s 90 degree Vee angla sets the two front cylinders low and nearly horizontal, while the rear cylinders stand almost vertical. This right angle configuration produces perfect primary balance, and a short stroke limits secondary imbalances. Finally, to ensure the 1100 Magna's smoothness Honda completely rubber mounted the engine Within the full cradle frame, following the practice of last year's 750s. End result: a monster engine that's a pussycat to live with.Except for the size increase, the 1100's top end appears identical to the V45's. The cylinders are an integral part of the upper case half, making the entire unit rigid. The liners are cast in freestanding cylinders--the cylinders and jackets are not connected to any sort of webbing. v65 engine view.jpg (48128 bytes) The highly oversquare 79.5 by 55.3mm engine displaces 1098cc. Like the 750s, the 1100 uses a high 10.5:1 compression ratio; it also incorporates similar anti-detonation features: water cooling to lower combustion chamber and exhaust valve temperatures, a swirl inducing intake tract that promotes quick burning of the fuel/air charge, and a carefully shaped combustion chamber that concentrates most of the charge near the spark plug to promote rapid flame travel. The 1100's 30mm intake and 26mm exhaust valves sit in their four valve head at a narrow 38 degree included valve angle the V45's intake and exhaust valve diameters are 26mm and 23mm respectively.Each pair of cylinders has a set of dual overhead camshafts to actuate the valves. The cams spin directly in the cylinder head material in a plain bearing setup. A single cam lobe acting through a forked follower equipped with screw type adjusters actuates each valve pair. A silent type cam chain drives each set of cams, and an automatic chain tensioner eliminates maintenance chores.Straight cut gears transfer the power from crank to clutch, the clutch gear a split, zero backlash type to damp out gear whine. The clutch itself is hydraulically operated, an enlarged version of, the VT750 V twin's rather than an upscaled version of the V45's. The, V65's diaphragm clutch spring and clutch plates are larger in diameter than the VT750's, and the 1100 holds two more plates than the Shadow. The diaphragm spring clutch is more rugged than one of conventional design fitted in the same space. Considering the abuse the V65 is likely to absorb during streetfights, the diaphragm spring setup is indeed a good idea. As an anti-lockup device during downshifting, the V65's clutch like the V twin's houses a one way sprag clutch. Vertically staggered transmission input and output shafts reduce overall engine length; the output shaft lies below and aft of the input shaft. Honda's six speed gearbox is unusual for an 1100cc bike. Because the V 65's gear box was designed as a "five speed plus overdrive sixth transmission;" top gear is really tall; calculated top speed in sixth works out to 173 mph at the 10,000 rpm redline. At 60 mph the engine loafs along at 3460 rpm. Final drive is via a maintenance free shaft.The Magna carries its engine in a full cradle frame equipped with an air adjustable, anti dive fork. Twin shocks adjustable for rebound and compression damping as well as spring preload grace the rear. The 1100's wheelbase, a whopping 62.8 inches long, is less than a half inch under a Gold Wing's. This figure, combined with the V65's rake and trail of 30.3 degrees and 4.1 inches, suggests the Magna might be cumbersome and slow steering. Not true. Around town and in 'parking lots the V65 handles just fine. clutch cutaway.jpg (16450 bytes)clutch basket.jpg (6748 bytes) The VF1100's 700's clutch is an enlarged version of the VT750 V-twins, complete with a diaphragm spring, a one way sprag clutch and hydraulic actuation The VF1100 feels distinctly long and unmistakably big, yet it requires only average steering effort through the handlebar. The 31.6 inch high seat is not especially low, but the Honda still feels fairly agile for an 1100. Honda engineers have done much to keep the weight low in the bike-the basic engine design, of course, is instrumental. her features such as the small under saddle gas tank contribute as well. Actually, styling trimmed the main tank's volume, and the V65's under tank airbox and filter also steal space from he main tank. The under seat tank and it’s fuel pump were the answer.Following Special styling, the rider's portion of the two tiered seat is wide and well padded, although the steep step confines the pilot's space. While most riders will find it adequate for in town trolling, passengers get shortchanged; their pegs are too high, and the narrow, firm rear portion of the seat has the comfort of a bird cage bar. side by side heads.jpg (11488 bytes) head and valves cutaway.jpg (10391 bytes) The 1100 head incorporates many of the 750 V four design concepts: the 38 degree included valve angle is the same and the combustion chamber is shaped to concentrate most of the fuel charge near the centrally located spark plug holes to promote rapid flame travel. Each cam lobe actuates a pair of valves via a forked follower equipped with screw type adjusters Once the rider enthrones himself in the saddle, the pullback handlebar and the forward mounted footpegs define his position. The pegs aren't as radical as the VT750C Shadow's, and that's good for comfort and control ' Given the V65's eyeball flattening acceleration, a riding position mimicking a tipped back rocking chair would be dangerous. The forward mounted pegs are convenient if you’re paddling the V65 around a parking lot, and while the bar has two way adjustability, it has, too much pullback to please our staff. Although the riding position may be a strong selling point on the showroom floor and a viable stance for stoplight to stoplight warfare, the bike's ergonomics offer the rider very little support, at freeway speeds.Arm, back and stomach muscles must position him against the windstream. This sort of onboard isometrics is no sweat for short hops. After 30 minutes though especially if you're riding at supra legal speeds you'll feel as though you’ve been working overtime at your Nautilus club. Although long legged riders can use the passenger pegs for, a brief change in position, the reach back leaves their legs nearly folded double in the process. Shorter riders can't reach the rear pegs at all. For them, a radical forward crouch proves most effective, though it places their torsos at an awkWard angle and their faces mere inches from the handlebar. Short of changing the bar/seat/peg relationships, the best remedy is to ride in half hour spurts. In a somewhat surprising move, Honda equipped the VF1100 with suspension components biased for sport riding.The up and down torque reaction of shaft driven bikes forces manufacturers to make trade offs when selecting rear suspension components. Typically, light spring and damping rates provide a soft, cushy ride at the expense of backroad handling, while a taut, well damped rear suspension makes fast riding easier and steadier at the expense of slow cruising comfort. Adjustable shock damping and air adjustable springing usually provide an effective, albeit expensive, compromise that gives a rider latitude in setting his bike up for specific tasks.The Magna's rear shocks have state of the art adjustability: two way adjustable compression damping and four way adjustable rebound damping. The springing is not air adjustable, and Honda engineers selected spring rates that are decidedly stiff. Our heavier (185 pound) testers found the rear end firm, but acceptably soft for freeway cruising when the springs were set at minimum preload. Lighter testers found the ride stiff and harsh, and the riding position tends to exacerbate this assessment. The reclining riding position centers most of the rider's weight back toward the tailbone, and every bump and seam in the road transfers a sharp jolt directly to the rider's spine. magna foil view.jpg (19989 bytes)Honda's FOIL ant theft System uses an integrated cable alarm setup, if the cable is cut, the alarm sounds. Cable fits neatly in the tail compartment. For backroad riding, Honda's choice of sporting shocks pays off handsomely. Set up stiffly, the VF's suspension damps well over all types of road surfaces, from fast sweepers to slow, knotty corners; however, the air adjustable fork flexes perceptibly when winding through unusually bumpy sweepers. The Magna's triple disc brakes offer excellent feel and stopping power, and the anti dive valving effectively preserves ground clearance during simultaneous braking and turning. The 1100 offers a good amount of ground clearance, and the stiff rear end does a good job of controlling the shaft drive's up and down motions. The stylishly wide tires put a big patch of rubber on the road.On twisting roads as well as around town, the 1100 requires only a moderate amount of steering effort. Nice. However, when you're busting along hard on curvy roads, the Magna feels disconcertingly vague through the handlebar. Several factors may contribute to this feeling. First, the V65's seat and controls push the rider's weight more rearward than on a sporting bike. On a sport bike a frisky riding pilot naturally moves himself even more forward than normal, applies weight to the bars, and rides with the balls of his feet on the pegs. It's an active riding position. In fast going the Magna's more passive position does little for rider confidence. Our staffers didn't like the bar - we felt as if we were steering the V65 with a tiller. Second, the V65's percentage of weight distribution (dry and unladen) is 45 front/55 rear (the CB1100 F's is 49 front/51 rear), and it's reasonable to assume that the V65 rider would bias that distribution even more toward the rear - though what makes the front tire stick in corners is more complex than where the weight is.Third, the V65 engine punches so hard out of corners that the front end naturally will feel light under acceleration. And there's nothing like horsepower to quicken up the steering of any bike. In more practical terms, you'll have to go riding with your friends and their full sporting 1100s only once to decide you won't clean up on them when the roads get twisty.The Magna's brute torque and mile wide power spread make the bike a joy to ride. With a little deft clutch work, the VF will idle away from a dead stop, even carrying two riders, without so much as a blip of the throttle. That's low end torque! Still, the engine revs readily up to redline, and it's all too easy to send the tach needle deep into the red zone because the bike runs so smoothly. When you cruise the 1100 in freeway traffic, everybody else seems to be poking along, clogging the road at a snail's pace. But a quick glance at the instruments explains the situation; thanks to the tall gearing, strong engine and smooth ride you're cruising at 80 mph or more. Riders must make a conscious effort to observe the legal limit. Passing in top gear is effortless, but if you want to swoop by cars with authority, dropping down to fifth or even fourth delivers passes in an eye blink or two. last photo 2.jpg (26625 bytes)A It up tank provides access to the air filter. Working conditions are cramped. The paper filter requires changing only every 8000 miles. We paid for our right handed excesses with mediocre mileage results. Steady cruising netted figures in the Iow 40 mpg range, but our average fuel consumption rate worked out to an un-spectacular 36.1 mpg. The low fuel warning indicator, which lights up when only 0.8 gallon remains in the 4.5 gallon tank, usually winked on after about 135 miles, giving the rider about 30 miles to find a gas station; the Magna has no reserve capacity.Our Magna started easily on chilly mornings, and the handlebar mounted choke lever is conveniently located for left hand adjustment. The Honda runs happily after minimal warm up and carburets well, hot or cold, under all engine conditions.The hydraulic clutch actuating setup eliminates any need for lever adjustment, and gives good clutch engagement and feel. Clutch pull is moderately stiff, considerably stiffer than the VT750's. The six speed gearbox is a wonderful luxury though not really necessary, thanks to the broad powerband and smooth engine. The 700 rpm drop in engine speed between fifth and sixth gears at 60 mph is welcome for straight line cruising. The gearbox proved a reluctant shifter, especially when the engine was cold; slow, deliberate shifting is the best way to combat this quirk.This king size Magna exhibits some bothersome driveline snatch. Gearplay in the drive train, combined with the CV carb's tendency to snap the carb slides open and closed, accentuates the Magna's low speed jerk and lurch routine. Long stints of stop and go traffic become irksome, and in congested, slow moving traffic, riders can skirt the problem by shifting to a higher gear and idling along slowly.The Magna has a number of attractive standard features. They include an LCD gear position indicator, microprocessor controlled self cancelling turn signals, and FOIL, Honda's built in security cable/alarm system. Last year, FOIL was the exclusive feature of the V45 Sabre. We think the V65's engine and its streetfighter styling make the King Kong Magna motorcycling's prime candidate for Midnight (and sometimes Daylight) Liberation Forces. Honda's fiber optic security cable is pretty innovative and probably offers as much protection as one can reasonably expect. For sheer visceral attraction, nothing beats the 1100 engine. By far, it's the V65's best feature, and motorcyclists who buy the V65 on looks will quickly find themselves enchanted by the 1100's performance.The 65's power is irresistible. The 1100 Vee would make an ideal starting point for a full fledged, pavement ripping sport bike; and while the VF750F Interceptor is a gorgeous piece, the 750 can't have 1100 punch. You have to wonder how many ways Honda can find to use the V65. A VF1100F is an obvious possibility, and the 1100's broad powerband, six speed gearbox, driveshaft and excellent vibration control also make the V65 a wonderful platform on which to build a full dresser. But for now, Honda has taken its premier performance engine to the streets to create a stoplight to stoplight blockbuster extraordinaire.

This unit just arrived and below is a review from Dirt Rider magazine: Second in line for first new bike of 2009 is the KTM 450 SX-F. Once a fiercely hard-edged motocrosser, the new and improved KTM is showing a more refined compliance that should gain it some new track-addicted fans in 2009.Right away you know this KTM is different than last years bike. One look into its graphics, one stare at the factory-colored fork and one glance at the blacked-out triple clamps and youll see KTMs forward-thinking style is alive and well. But the beneficial changes dont stop with aesthetics.Clearly the most noticeable improvement and most obvious to the eye is the new front suspension components. The fork on the 2009 450 SX-F shares similar construction refinements with the 250 XC weve already tested. Thinner tubes, stiffer springs and new valving put the fork action in a different direction: a much softer one. Really, KTM engineers accomplished something directly in line with what American customers will appreciate: a more supple, friendlier ride aboard an orange bike. Surely, more riders will feel at home with the new plushness. While the combination of the flex character of the setup and overall softer damping makes fans from novice to intermediate, pro-level riders will need to stiffen up the front end to keep from getting stuck in the wallows. Same goes for the shock, which has its own upgrades.The linkageless shock out back on the 450 SX-F has an all-new PDS needle. This is the linkage in a dual-piston shock system. It acts similar to a carb needle in that upon compression, the amount of oil passing by the needle is reduced the farther the shock travels. When the needle closes off the bypass, the valving includes the secondary piston and the rate of damping force increases. The angle of the shock puts a certain amount of rising rate (like a linkage) on the shock, but the internal valving adds even more dimension to this.The result of all this fluid dynamic needle business is a great rear shock feel. Again, better than the 08 and more friendly to a wider range of riders. Were pretty sure the shock plushness has a lot to do with the improved front end feel, too. Also mirroring the front, the shock seems to be on the soft side for the fastest riders in our testing posse. Dial it in by stiffening it up, and dont forget to use rebound adjustments for traction control!Speaking of adjustments, the only really strange thing about KTMs suspension this year seems to be the sensitivity of the clickers. Our testers all felt the range of one click was huge. So huge that we were looking for half clicks. So click wisely. Or if you want to learn what things do, click recklessly and pay attention.Inside the KTMs renowned motor is some enhancement worth noting. The motor nicely packages more bottom-end than a year ago with the same great overrev and top-end superiority. Everyone is in love with this motor, and since theyve proven to have a solid track record in the durability department, were more than confident giving it a positive endorsement. Changes internally include a new, lighter weight piston which is at least partially responsible for getting the SX-F motor into the revs sooner. The valve train has some updates (lighter finger followers, new valve springs and slightly different timing) to enhance this rev-up further. Also new in the head are revised intake and exhaust ports that match the all-new intake and exhaust manifolds which bookend the top end. In a refinement year, youd think a suspension overhaul and major motor character enhancements would be enough. Especially since KTM has the control and style market more than cornered with its juice clutch, radical braking power and gnarly graphic treatments. But for 09, that game is stepped up, too.New levers and master cylinders for both the brake and clutch side make another nice addition. The clutch is now less-funky feeling with a normal sized lever, and the front brake system (which is all new down to the caliper) is smaller, lighter and easier to modulate. The braking power is still there, though, trust us. The clutch lever also features great position adjustability and boasts fold-away crash-damage resistance.Weve given this orange ride the First Test treatment over here at the Dirt Rider shop, for sure. Were generally in love with the bike, mostly because it works so nicely for all of us and secondly because we love any bike with electric start.Shootout,Looks at the pictures and watch the video, if you have a questions about this fun to ride KTM 450 give us a call.

(...& in 1970-74 I was a contributing Technical Editor for Cycle News Magazine (at that time it was the Largest Motorcycle publication on Earth ! ! ! & I wrote 14 Four to Five page Featured Techincal Articals for "Cycle News" magizine & I was a Four+ Year Sponsored Open Class "TT" Scrambles & "Half Mile" Racer for "BULTACO" Motorcycles late 1969 to 1974 So ...No One Loves a Great Dirt Bike Better than Me ! ....and again ........If you Pass Up this Wonderful Bike where will you ever find a 1980 SUZUKI DS 80 (she looks like a RM 80 w/ lights) like DS 80 Dirt Bike with so little use on Her ! ????? ?????? This is a Bike that most anyone could Have "BIG FUN" ridding all day long On !Most everyone I have talked with agrees these 1980 (RM 80 w/ lights) like DS 80 Dirt Bikes have hands down Always been considered one of the Worlds BEST jr size Dirt / Racing bikes & SUZUKI has Long Been known for their Trouble Free, Reliability. The 1980 80cc "DS 80" SUZUKI Dirt Bikes are probably one of the Least Scary & By Far Easiest to Ride & Most New Rider Friendly Dirt Racing Bikes ever Made !!! & this 1980 is BY FAR one of the Most Evolved Early Successful Dirt Racing Bikes as it has all of the Most sought after Goodies Super Simple Piston Port & (self Tuning) Reed Valve inductions system, For the fairly Decent " fairly Good Travel" Forks & Decent Travel Rear "DUAL Rear " Shock rear Swing suspension ("in 1980 All of this was "Rocket Science" that Really worked GREAT " ! ! ! ), Very Simple less hassle far more reliable Air Cooled (than the early water cooled SUZUKI's etc etc I have heard) (this being one of the last years of this DS & RM Series that went from This Very Perfected 1980 DS 80 SUZUKI (Air Cooled) engine ( Factory Tuned MX Race Chamber style) Pipe , Factory Big Cooling HEAD & All of this Yet She is still nice and (relatively) fairly low to the Ground (Way less Scary for Newer Riders) and because of her Nice Low height She will even fit in right into my Mini Van even with the vans center seat still in place !!!! How many 80CC DIRT RACING bikes can do that ! This Baby Typically Starts Easily & Very Quickly ! I believe this Has her original Factory seat & she also has her Original SUZUKI Gas tank that still looks and is in GREAT Condition with a Brand New 1980 RM SUZUKI Style Tank Graphic ! Her Gas tank frame & engine etc has been Newly refinished & Painted as are the Front & Right & Left side panels and Both Front & year Fenders. YES ! the gas tank Graphics have just been replaced with what looks to be ORIGINAL New Old Stock or incredibly Accurate Graphics that look perfect to me to the 1980 RM Graphics decals that SUZUKI installed back about the time this bike was new ! The inside of her tank looks GREAT. Handlebars, Pegs, shifter, She has Brand New Handlebar Grips ! brake levers etc etc are still in Very Nice Condition ! The Shifter and Brake levers look Perfect !This Beauty has been in storage for several Years & is just returning to service again & She is "Running Great" I think the more you run her the better she will run ! Make No Mistake this Baby: Runs, Starts Stops ,Shifts & Rides GREAT ! * * * Again.... Think About it , if You pass this Baby Up .....where else will you ever find a 1980 DS 80 (like a RM with lights) with very little use on her ! ! ! ??????????????????????? This Wonderful Bike was storage in a Nice Dry Garage for several years. Once we flushed the tank & Carburetor + put in fresh gas & She started right up again ! ! ! ! ! ! !) My mechanic & I washed out the carburator and & tank & installed a Brand New inline fuel filter etc...& Every time we have run this Beautiful Bike over the past few weeks "The Engine Runs Great and Typically Starts SUPER EASY & SUPER Quick" ! It runs well & seems Shifts well thru the gears just as she should.
