Hey guys and gals, just thought Id post up here finally and introduce myself. Ive been browsing the site for the past year and read alot of useful information. I was just curious what kind of stuff I should check over my bike before I start riding. I wont be doing any crazy long rides since this is my first street bike but I want to start getting out for a couple hours on the weekends pretty soon! I built the bike from scratch, its a 78 KZ 650. In the process of building it ive greased every bearing that isnt a sealed unit and all those ones are all brand new. The bike has brand new pads front/rear as well as new tires. I put a new chain on and adjusted it with 1" of play but I havent greased it yet, Ive read a few things online about how to grease it with the rear tire in the air and spinning. Any suggestions on a brand of grease and where to get it would be appreciated?? My brakes front and rear are bled and all the airs out, no squishyness. Oil is changed, new fuses and a new battery. I went with a smaller scooter battery so in the future I wont have issues with space. The starter is still on the bike but I decided to go kick only and therefore didnt wire the starter in, thats why Im running the smaller battery. I read about that trick on the kz650 forum. I switched to an electronic ignition instead of the points so that doesnt need any adjusting. I have briefly ran it a few times but its not quite at the point where I can idle it and rev it so I dont know how the carbs are set up yet, I hope to finish painting the tank next week and get it back on so I can run it. Thats all i can think of at the moment. Any pointers would be appreciated!! Hope to meet some of you guys eventually!!
