Right on man! Thanks!

I'm trying to keep posting fresh content so shares and comments definitely help the reach of each video. I'm in no way even close to making as much as a penny though so it's not about that one bit lol. I would need about 970 more subs and above 4000 hours watch time in a year. So share that shit! I need to supplement bike parts for the 5 of mine I need to get back on the road

But I do enjoy the editing and making helpful videos so that's worth it all right there.

I'm going to put together a video on choosing a good starter bike too in the near future, as well as how to do a full track conversion and a basic suspension setup guide with a friend who owns a suspension company.

Recently got my first ticket on the bike, and have convinced myself itll be safer, and cheaper to start doing track days to satiate my desire for speed, and find something else for street duty. Additionally, my suspension has never been setup properly, post-front fork rebuild. Ill be looking forward to both of those videos!

I'm putting this one up here even though I posted it a few weeks ago before my trip up to Washington.

I hope that everyone is having a decent holiday season and want to say thanks to everyone here for being who you are! Maybe this little message of thanks and stuff will motivate someone. Even if it helps one person then that means more than I could ever hope for.

Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Hail Satan.... whatever you're into.

FJ600 carbs really wake up the FZ600.......... just an FYI

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

I mentioned that to the guy. His gears started turning but for now we're just gonna get the turd running again. I have a brand new tank for it that's never been used. It's glorious.

Just another video for the archives....

If you haven't already, please subscribe! That'd be super neat-O! I'd think you were really a cool person if you did... and you may even enjoy the content too.

CCT came in for the CBR900RR so I finished up the valve adjustment and slapped her in the ass and called her Betty White.... (I have no idea what that means but I'm still working on my coffee this morning.

This valve adjustment is for a 1997 Honda CBR900RR but most of the practices are similar on many different Japanese sport bikes. So if this helps someone get an idea of how to go about a valve adjustment then sa-weet!

Can't wait to ride this bike! Gonna pop a set of take-off Michelins on her and sort out the carbs first but she's probably going to see some track time this season if I can convince my buddy to let me take it with me to the track

Oh and a shoutout to Riverszzr for shooting the shit with me yesterday while I called him asking if he had a service manual for a GPZ1100 (which he did not btw )

Enjoy!

The shots looking onto the top of the head are really clean. I watch a LOT of big budget you tubers who do bike builds, and thats probably the cleanest look, while wrenching Ive seen.

That being said, Im overdue about 5k for an adjustment, so this video is about to be super helpful!

P.s. you gotta try to get Riverszzr to record himself saying Honda shims, Im telling ya., for his regular recommendation of said shims.

Anytime someone asks about where to get shims, we just spam them with that message.

Thanks man!

When I tell people what I use to shoot my videos they sometimes are confused because they look the way they do....

I shoot with my Sumsung Galaxy S7 using the 'pro mode' and an IPhone 7s. Sometimes I'll use the GoPro 3+ but rarely.
two small tripods I picked up for about $15 each at Walmart
And a lighting kit made by Neewer - two LED dimable lights (white and amber LED's) - one with a diffuser

Lighting the shot right, using tripods, setting the cameras correctly, and making sure the audio is good (probably most important honestly) is all it takes. I have a system so I'm quick with setting up my shots and because most of what I do are tutorials and how-to's editing is pretty easy because it's all chronological order for the most part.

I'm looking at upgrading my cameras this year (at least one of them lol) but honestly, Galaxy cameras are the shit. So I'll keep the S7 on Camera duty after I upgrade to the S9+, swap the Iphone for a better video camera and stay with what I have for the time being.

You guys do realize you can only use the Honda shims up to and including a 2.925 shim........ thicker than that you have to use Kawasaki shims!!

And while I tell people often to use Honda shims, it is only based on price........... You can buy the honda shims for about 60% the cost of Kawasaki shims and they are the exact same high quality shim actually made at the same place.... The only way to get case hardened tempered all the way through shims is via buying the oem ones....... ALL aftermarket shims are only surface hardened and some of them barely (sub .0005") at that

While I certainly could do videos......... I am far too busy and don't really care to be a public figure....

Thanks for the info on the cheaper shim size limitation. Youve probably saved me a headache. Not to derail the thread, but I have a quick question for you, Riverszzr. I recently replaced my valve cover gasket, the plug hole gaskets, and the o rings for the valve cover bolts. I plan on checking my valve clearances, this weekend, or next. Then ordering shims, and hopefully installing them, (prayers to the shipping gods) the next weekend.

Should I replace the aforementioned gaskets, or are they ok to reuse?

Ok. One more question. Is the motionpro carb sync tool worth a shit, or do you have a better tool to recommend, for throttle body sync?
