  1. I just got the DID ZVM530 at 112 links for $130.00 including shipping
  2. You are probably right. I was talking to a mechanic about them and he said all the Muzzy blades are one blade more than stock with a sharper pitch. Will see what Muzzy says. Thanks.
  3. The Muzzy Blades are all 5 bladed as compared to the stock at 4, I think ?? Suppose to have a slightly different angle of the dangle also for a 50% increase in air volumn I am told. I will email Muzzy tonight and hope for a reply tomarrow on details. Hope you are right on a model as direct replacement for the BIRD. Will post results when I get them.
  4. Leave your teeth alone. La Chomper is running stock chain and sprockets and I followed him all over the Dragon and the Cherahola Skyway at the Hoot, that is except when I went Off Roading myself for a while. :-) And D2 slowed up and Watched and didn't even follow along. Guess he doesnt have the off road contol I did that day. I didn't go down but decided I need a new suspension system for my next off road adventure.
  5. I have looked into a bigger better fan blade myself but have not had any luck. Muzzy makes a bunch of 5 blade fan replacement blades but they do not list one for the BIRD. My local shop said they could take out my fan and replace the 4 bladed one with a muzzy 5 bladed one but would have to match up the width and diameter and re-drill new holes to mount it. I am looking for a Bird fan that has stopped working and is going to be thrown out, so I can take the blade out to use as a stencil to match up with a 5 blade Muzzy blade. Then I will replace mine. Guess I should place a want ad. in the selling thread. Will do it now. Thanks for reminding me !! South Florida stays mostly in the 80's and 90's all year round. Sunny South Florida has recieved 4 inches of rain in the last two days :cool:
  6. Only took me 2 1/2 hours..... Only !! Got a brand new DID ZVM530 Chain on and new stock SunStar front and rear sprockets. Wasn't to bad to do. Did have to remove the lower plastic to get the new front sprocket on. Now just finished cleaning and polishing and WTF !! It starts to rain......!!!!!! Oh well all done and shinny waiting for the sun to come back out.
  7. Thanks Joe, & Fur May the project begin !
  8. I will be replacing my chain and sprockets tomarrow. Haven't done it before so any tricks to removing the front sprocket I should know about. Also it there any problem getting the sprockets aligned properly ? Help and tips would be appreciated.

    New Chain

    You changed the chain but not the sprockets ?
  10. Are you running the Evans in your Bird now ? Looks like something I want to try. Thanks
  11. Brain fart... I had to reread your post....Thought you wanted another Pyramid Hugger. Jaws has the Pyramid line.
  12. Give Jaws an email at www.jaws-motorcycles.co.uk and he will get one right out to you at the right price. Only takes a week to recieve. That is where mine came from. I really like it and the fit was perfect.
  13. Kent Stotz uses progresive springs in his drag bike as well as his personnal Turbo Bird. I call him a racer both on and off the track. I want some but can't find them.
  14. Does HyperPro make progressive springs for the Bird ? Or are they regular constant resistance ?
  15. Very Cool and I mean your engine temps ! I would like to get my engine temps down below 180 when cruising. The Bird is said to run higher temps normally but was told at Honda that boil over and damage does not begin till almost 300 degrees ! Now that is HOT.
  16. I spoke to Progressive suspensions and they told me they do not make a progressive spring for the Bird. ? Where did you get your progressive's from ?
  17. If you guys will post temps before and after instead of saying it dropped 10-15 degrees, then it will be easier to compare what is average temps everyone is running. Digital gauges are awesome.
  18. My bike has been running rather hot for the past year. First year I owned it I never saw it go above 225 degrees even in hot south florida traffic. Then suddenly it became a problem and ran up to 250 once at Daytona at midnight on a tall bridge in outside temps of 50 degrees with a steady breeze blowing. Stayed out of traffic to keep the temp down till I got back home and immediately flushed system and refilled with pure engine ice. Didnt see any change or cooler temps with the engine ice and have had to be carefull to avoid long traffic jams to prevent the temp going above 235 degrees. Since I leave tomarrow for the FUXXT I put my bike in the shop this week and had a good friend and (MMI) Honda mechanic check it out and he replaced the radiator cap and flushed the system again and replaced the engine ice with Honda coolant. Have run for two days now and temp has not gotten above 221 degrees in traffic. Highway crusing the temp runs about 184 now and fan turns on at 217 and stops climbing at 221/222 but the fan will not bring the temp down by itself. Once I get rolling the temp falls quickly below 200. I am now considering adding alittle waterwetter to the new Honda coolant to see if there is any difference. On my bike the engine ice did nothing for lowering the temp but then there may have been a radiator cap problem the same time that I was using it. Will see what happens this weekend as I put 1000 miles on the Honda coolant and compare to other Birds on the ride. Will post results monday.

    My 2001 only has one fan.
  20. Take a look at www.BarEnder.com Not only do they look good but they are very functional too. Also in about a week I will be able to get you a discount also. You can even see them on my Bike at the FUXXT on Sunday.
  21. I have a stock 900RR shock that was given to me. It is Yellow tho so will have to paint it but free none the less. Where refering to the "stocker" does that mean the stock Bird spring or the stock RR spring ? I am a light weight at 150 lbs and rarely ever ride two up. Can I use either the stock Bird or stock RR spring for my set-up ?
  22. I just replaced mine last weekend after 18,000 miles. It cost me $24.50 and 20 minutes to change. The X11 would be nice but not available here in the States. Cept through Joe when he does group buys. Then it is aprox. $50.00.
  23. www.321ignition.co.uk The owners name is Sebastion Seal (Seb)
