I had a 91 FZR600; it was my third bike a few years ago. It was fun, but I decided to upgrade to something a little more modern. I do like the early 90's sport bike styling, it's what I drooled at when I was a kid!

My first 'free' dirt bike. Won from my Aunt's divorce. She pulled hard the first three years I ran her, now she's not so happy.

I am planning to throw in new rings (not worth a full rebuild) lap the valves, replace valve seals, gaskets, friction plates and clutch springs. Got a new inline fuel filter as well, as I've Kreem cleaned the tank before, but my carb still gets chunkies in it and I'm tired of cleaning it.

I think it always ran regular car oil in it, until I got a hold of it and learned better, so I'm sure that's the root of a lot of problems.

I've never done even a simple rebuild like this; just watched youtube videos, but I think I can handle it.

Any issues with just putting new rings in and bedding them in? Or should I really take the time and expense of honing the cylinder and putting a new piston in?

Compression is low, btw, sure you figured that out already.

Oldie, I might have a couple of them.








Yeah, I know,and that's only half of them. They are all 71-78 Hondas, some are 500/4 and the others are 550/4s. It's like potatoe chips, can't have just one.

I'd be willing to bet their offspring would turn out to be something similar to a Nighthawk 750!

Ha! I figured the F16 fairing on my 919 had that covered! And the offspring would be the black and red S model like I used to have.

Love the pics of yours man! Used to see a lot of red/black and blue/black, not so many like yours. Nice.

Yeah, 86 was not the best year for sales after the Hurricanes appeared.

Still, easy to see why the 919 was a natural choice for me.

That's a great looking bike. Did it come stock with the red frame or was that a custom job?

thanks! it came like that from the factory. I just bought a newer Honda Hornet, but do not know if I ever manage to sell this one. It has been faithful and bulletproof on all trips!
