    Madonna bike:

    7949.jpeg

    Because like Madonna, she might have been something to brag about back in '95 - but now she's kinof saggy and old.


    Seeking tips:
    • Shock rebuild advice
    • Replacement bodywork
    • Engine technicians
    • Things to look out for

    She needs some love, but is basically sound. $2500 = the cheapest way to 11sec 1/4 mile ever in any case!

    In other news I have a minty mint mint SXV550 with a fresh Noland TWC rebuild for sale....

              Yeah, for no good reason I can figure out, it had to be a Purple one.

              I mean, I could argue that it was the last year of the Gen1 , when the 900rr was still top dog, etc., etc., but really it is just that I was still pretty new to motorcycling in 1995 and I remember drooling on a brand new one of these in a parking lot for a good 15min. At that time, this bike was just a dream for me - now it's cheap as chips!

              I also looked at the Gen1 R1s, but I decided this bike would be more easily converted to sports-tourey duty. I love the tail trunk already. Plus, its a Honda!

                The only bad thing that happens is that the oil pickup starves during wheelies and it is invariably the #3 rod that makes a quick exit. Thousands of these things were murdered before their time in the Star Boyz era but one that has survived this well is very unlikely to have such a problem.

                16" front wheel is easy to deal with if you have to but dunno how necessary,it didn't bother me much but haven't tried to buy any tires for one in a long time.

                Bodywork can be tough to find,it's hard to find for all old sportbikes but again blame stunnaz for making that worse. There is Chinesium as an option or try to get lucky on eBay.

                  Fortunately my skills do not permit multi gear balance point wheelies, so my bearings are safe (from me) anyway. The gearbox (another common problem) was sound as far as I could tell on my test ride, but of course, I could barely get up to speed on the cold March side streets.

                  The top fairing is cracked, I am hoping to repair it, but I was I was looking at a full set of Chinesium to become my dailies so I could preserve the originals. If you have any reviews of any vendors, I'd love to hear them.

                  17" wheel will definitely be done. It handles like a truck on the squared off 16" tire it has on now.

                  It needs a full service: Engine check, tires, chain and sprox, carb clean/rebuild so far. Judging by the wear though (square front tire, barely broken in brake rotors) it was very gently ridden through its life. It has 32k on the clock, but you'll never guess by the time I get through it.


                  But the most important questions:

                  Do I go with the period correct windscreen in Yellow or Purple?
                  https://zerogravity-racing.com/colle...nt=30139530641

                  The bike came with non functioning neons (Neons! remember that?). Do I fix them or toss them? I mean - its obviously garbage, but it is also hilarious.

                    Purple! start looking for matching leathers.

                    Why not a Blackbird if your plan is to sport tour it?

                      To me this thing is already freakin' dump truck of a bike. I cannot imagine my skinny butt trying to prop up +100lbs of bike - that's getting into Harley territory!

                      You know it was called 'hardcore' back in the day, but compared to today's sportbikes, this thing is a barcalounger. With slightly more compliant suspension some taller bars and soft bags, I'm gonna be G2G for what I'll do. I rarely ride more than a couple hours any day out. Probably what I refer to as 'sport touring' is just 'street riding' for most.

                      I will probably do an easy track day or two, if I feel confident enough to risk it - but we'll see. Gotta get my Hawk trackbike out there first! So many bikes, so little time...

                        If it runs, has water vice anti-freeze for coolant, has good brake pads and tires, you are good to go for your beginner track day event at most track days. "perfection" is the enemy of good enough and your priorities of what is important to improve will likely change after your ride on a track... at least mine did.

                        After you get used to riding with your knees on the tank sides and have some core strength, you'll have neck soreness before anything else due to your helmet being in the wind at interstate speeds .

                          There it is in a nutshell.Dragging knee is for Posers. Keep it tight,keep it narrow.

                            dragging ones is for people with knee pucks. Dragging knuckles is for BTT.
