    Black art of keeping the Bird cool

    Something I thought about doing on the turbobird was fabing a heat shield to go between the radiator and the header. Something louvered to allow airflow but solid enough to block radiant heat.

    Lowering front end

    Thanks for the responses. It jogged my memory and now I'm thinking I set my 2000 XX up with +6mm rear and -4mm front. That setting resulted in me dragging bits when really pushing it through a corner though. Maybe I'll try a little less drop in the front.

    Lowering front end

    I wondered if I was remembering correctly. I know it was 6mm shim on rear shock but don't remember what the forks were.

    Lowering front end

    Does anyone remember whether it is 2mm or 4mm that one lowers the triple tree on the fork tubes to quicken steering?

    What are XX's worth in 2018?

    The '03 I just bought has less than 13k on the clock, no damage other than a couple of minor scratches, new tires, yosh 4-1, pcII, corbin seat + stock, machined bar risers, givi wing rack and side bags, ram mount, peg lowering brackets, and touring wind shield +stock. All for $4250.00. I couldn't be happier. I'll probably sell off the corbin and wind screen.

    The Turbo XX is dead.

    It just seems that way. I've actually been watching Craigslist ads for quite some time. I think used XX's are probably one of the best deals on the market out there right now. When you consider that there is not much difference between a used one with ten or fifteen thousand miles on it and a new one, other than a few minor scratches.

    Yep. Adjusting the cams was just an option I hadn't tried. Like I said it's really time constrants and when I'd have time and funds to dive into it. Superhawk The motor was running fine when I rode it last. As far as what's been done to it low compression pistons, falicon crank, carillo rods, liquid to air intercooler. It was set to run 12lbs on low and 18lbs on high boost. HP was around 275.

    There is coolant in the cylinder with the most likely cause being a failed head gasket, meaning pull the head. Next the liquid that was expelled was rust colored meaning the cylinder will need to be honed, so split the cases. I'd say that qualifies as damaged. The motor has 40k with the turbo. If I had the time to remove the motor and take it apart I would. I would also want to hone all the cylinders, replace the pistons, degree the cam shafts, replace the pos hahn header, ect. ect. ect. I'm still trying to work out a way to keep it, but I don"t want it to become a pile of dusty parts in the corner of the garage because of my work schedule.

    Goldbird on Craigslist AZ

    It would probably be a good one, factoring in the dump fees to dispose of all the stupid shit and buying new (shorter) brake lines of course.

    Might be fun, but 22 large is out of my wifes comfort zone and I can't siphon that much from the petty cash account.

    I rode Tim's 14 a few years ago. Good power just didn't like the ergos.

    That may happen to me too. I haven't ridden a stock bird in a few years. The other bikes like, zx14 and busa just don't speak to me. Otherwise I'd consider switching.
