Hi there Brooks. FYI, Just wanted to mention that I had a pretty hard time finding you on Ebay. I found your parts, (I think) but you are listed as darivincayden7987. Is this you?
http://motors.shop.ebay.com/darivinc...id=p4340.l2562

The only way I could find you was to do an advanced search, find member, insert your entire email address ([email protected]), then type in the security code, then it gave me your seller name and your stuff was there. I could not 'find seller' ebayskempsmith.

Did you ever find that aftermarket clutch slave?

Wow! What a flashback.
I had the same bike, but in '72 it was called an F5 Bighorn.


That was the second bike I ever had.
The year prior, I had its F4 Sidewinder 250 brother which was the exact same engine except the F5 had a larger bore and CDI ignition.

That engine was a torque monster, and virtually indestructible.
I had that bike and engine forever, up to the late 90's.
I did anything and everything on that bike.
I finally sold the engine to my cousin back in '96 so he could put it into an ATV. Probably still running to this day.

I honed my mechanical skills on that engine, and could practically take it apart and reassemble it in my sleep.
I stuffed the engine into an F7 175 frame and my buddy raced it in motocross.

That engine never let me down. Even when the primary gear nut loosened and milled a hole through the crankcase, allowing gear oil to be sucked into the carburetor (carb on the side due to it being a rotary valve engine). The CDI made a 55KV spark that vaporized the carbon and never fouled.
I used 3M industrial epoxy to seal the hole and had no more problems.

I loved that bike.

Yes lots of torque and even a pretty smooth ride up and down the street on the org. tires. Oil injection set a little to rich as i looked like I was spraying for mosquitoes. I was on the USS John Marshall SSBN 611............cheers,oreocrow

If you think that was rich, you should've seen the cloud when it was sucking the gearbox oil into the engine. I couldn't even see the cards behind me on the freeway.
The CDI was so powerful, I didn't even know I had a problem until I did look behind me and saw the cloud.

BTW I was on USS Thomas Jefferson SSBN618, in the same squadron.

Sorry about the major thread jack though.
