2013 honda msx 125 (grom in the USA) lightly modded.

1980 honda cub 70cc, but its not a 70cc anymore, in in the process of modifying, only really the frame left of the original bike now has a 160cc motor, upside down forks alloy wheels, alloy swinger,yoshi shocks, work in progress.

honda wave 110cc. my daily work horse for commuting etc.

Back to the dealer this week, I have an intermitent speedo fault.:(
The speedo works fine untill the bike is warm, then it starts jumping around untill it stops working.
I think it could be the sensor.
I hope its not a sign of things to come !!!wac

all bolt on!

for a second disc setup all parts can be sourced new from the international model from any dealer. i have the takeoff 2200 mile OE disc for sale as i got a pair of EBC units. bought a complete fork, if labor is free you can by lower section only, new dual brake lines + a bigger dual disc master cyl. i got a caliper + master from conquest at a savings, they supplied the braided brake lines with the dual manifold as well. various correct bolts can be sourced from a dealer, i shopped various on line discount dealers for the best DELIVERED price!!
