    Round 2 for Rozi

    From the "What have you done to your Hawk today" thread:

Got the rear axle/hub assembly apart, the grease smelt burnt. Will have to look at the bearings in good light when my eyes aren't so tired, but I think it was just very old and will just need a good cleaning and re-greasing. Took stock of what else it needs: remove tumor exhaust, carbs cleaned and rejetted for pods/supertapp shorty can, new grips, 150/60 rear tire, front marker lights (currently only 2 wire, won't pass NY inspection), and oh yeah, the eccentric is completely missing a few teeth. Haven't dug into the front end yet, think I'll be spending some time cleaning/rebuilding the rear assembly. Guess I'll start a new build thread...

    Pics as promised. Think the teeth on the eccentric can be saved?

    There was so much corrosion on the swingarm, the snap ring for the eccentric had to be pried from the swingarm.

        Replacement eccentric in, all greased up along with the spindle, rotating much nicer now. Took a closer look at the rear brake assembly and itís ugly. Fugly. So much corrosion on the slide pin the pads wouldnít move easily. Tried cleaning/polishing/sanding even, but itís too far gone so going to swap in a replacement.

        Also swapped out the stock shock for for that Works Performance one I picked up a while back. Has some life in it, but the spring seems soft, maybe even lighter than the stock shock. But then again, my daughter only weighs 95 pounds so we shall see.

        Lastly, 6 gave me a hand chiseling out the gaskets between the tumor and the headers, so we were able to get the stock muffler off. Anyone want it?

          Thinking about rear tires. When we built the Daisy Bike, we used a 150/60-17 Metzeler Sportec Interact M5 rear tire on a stock rim; that's a 1.2" smaller diameter than stock 150/70-17, so 0.6" lower seat height, roughly speaking. Plenty of 140/70 tires, but they're actually taller than the 150/60. Shinko 006 Podium comes in a 140/60-17, and according to this chart, it should fit on the stock 4.5" rim and would drop the seat height another 0.25" for a total of 0.85". All that said, I'm left wondering if the 140/60 will be too stretched of a profile on the rim.

          Plus Revzilla has the Shinko for only $93.71 which is pretty economical to boot!

            69Falcon looks like your Shinko 006 Podium 140/60/17 recommend rim width is 3.75 ", you'd have to ask someone who knows more than I about a 4.5 inch rim fitment.

            Funny my VFR 700 had a skinny rear rim and tire and I went in for a set of Metezler tires, the stock rear was guessing a 140 and I wanted to go two sizes up which the shop talk me out of for obvious reasons, but they weren't going to mount it anyway.

            See if they have a tire rep you can contact.

                Well... my daughter decided to take a job in NYC so this project is shelved once again. Not that there's any shortage of projects at the Pit, part of me is itching to work on one of the F2s.
