    Replaced the old D404s with Metzler Roadtec 01. Also put the rebuilt Koni shocks back on.

    Ultrasonic cleaned and rebuilt some calipers

    The black one is for my virago, apparently it’s the same as the xj650/750’s?

    red one is a xj550 right side caliper. is color matched to the left side one that’s on my bike right now. FDE14E62-9AF1-4A93-8777-2A8C433F3D12.jpeg EAD047D0-AE5F-47BD-947B-562FEA811467.jpeg CA74DC8A-7B31-4BED-B8A3-0EC653DDC0C1.jpeg

    Hola a todos. Soy nuevo aquí. Después de varios años, decidí reconstruir mi viejo xj 750 82 con 35000 millas. Se mantuvo durante 20 años. Lo primero que hice fue leer este sitio durante muchas horas y debo felicitarlos porque la información que obtuve es invaluable. Gracias por eso. Hoy Desmonte los frenos delanteros y traseros para examinarlos. Saludos

    Do you speak Welsh? If so we could have a conversation, unlikely anyone else would understand.
    Otherwise it's English here I'm afraid.

    Needed to get at my mig welder, so started the vmax, took that outside, swapped batteries from the seca to the 650 maxim with the mikuni carbs, did my welding outside and put everything away. it was dark, but rude not to take the maxim for a spin. Cold but lovely...

    Also, for posterity, a shot of the janky system I used to compress the springs to put in the snap ring:
