I hope you have better luck than I did with my 78 KZ400 resto-turd.

I used an EX250 rear swing arm and wheel, and while it slid right into the frame at the pivot point, the sprockets were about 20mm apart from lining up.

Got a 20mm offset front sprocket made, and then the chain wanted to occupy the same place as the left shock. The plan now is for a mono shock conversion. I also need to clearance the inside of the frame for the chain.

It's been on the back burner for awhile since I have a few other projects, and also because I don't have a welder or the skills to use one properly.

Default Re: GOLDEN TRASH 78 KZ650

got the new tire. easy to put on myself.
pretty wide tire for a ninja ex300 wheel.



had the same idea that fighteverything has.
I just have to make some kind of mount bracket that keeps it from spinning.
the only issue with this now is the chain tensioning, it has to be spot on.
original spot has a slider in the caliper mount bracket.

what size tire?

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

Default Re: GOLDEN TRASH 78 KZ650

so I need a longer chain. I believe 6 links.

oem KZ650 chain is 102. I need about 108.

ninja chain is 520
kz is 530

I bought a 520(should still fit) with 110 links.
cut off link use master? simple enough. I think I did this same procedure long time ago with the 79 kz750 R1 newb build
