    2t's in general don't really like cruising, as long as the jetting/oiling is correct it shouldn't be an issue though. This one has cut heads, weisco 66mm piston, yz125 reeds, dave f carbs mods, dgs etc. I ride the bike everyweek to my local vintage bike night which is about 30 minutes of pure highway riding. I haven't had any issues yet, nor do I think its going to be an issue. Dealing with the wind since the bike has no fairings is more of an issue than killing the cylinders. A 4 stroke bike would be better to cruise long distance but I ride this bike 70mph on the highway everywhere without any issues. Its not like riding an xs650 or a cb750 etc. Remember its a small engine and the revs are around 6k at 70mph with stock gearing. Regardless its still a load of fun and I ride her on the highway almost all the time. If you can deal with always smelling like burnt oil, and some light oil leaks here and there in exchange for a crazy fun power band and a super light bike, then it's the bike for you!

    My bike should be making around 40-45hp at the moment. I want to send it off to scr for a refresh, some heavy porting, and spec 2 pipes, but thats down the road. Looking to make it close to something like this but with wire wheels.

    bastard! lol ive been looking for an RD 350/400 for a while as my personal machine, love those bikes. how do you like it? i was talking with a 350 owner, he was saying you cant ride them on the highway at the same RPM or you'll smoke the cylinders, better bike to rip around the side/city streets on

    Dozy - That looks perfect, classy as hell.
    Thanks guys! Bmw british racing green pops and I wouldn't hesitate to spray it on a car. In those pictures it hasn't even had it's preliminary cut and buff. Just did a San Diego to San Francisco via the highway 1 on the thing. She has weight to her, but it disappears when you need it to. Any of you guys done stretches like that? To sturges or the likes?

    If you're looking into a bike you can buy for that price and then project later... I've always had a thing for what Hageman did with his Yamaha Viragos.

    There's a certain year where there's a mono shock design, and he sells his own custom frame/kits (that come with all you need) for it. A bit of $$ going into the project but look with what you can get. Sexy!

    I bought my lil yamaha endure for 200 and my CB360 for 1000, but both needed extensive work/put back together, but you can find a good running bike for cheap, my CX runs and rides great and I got that for 1100

    speaking of CB, this fucking thing is driving me bonkers with the carbs, cant get the damn thing running right, fucking frustrating to say the least
