As oldNslow suggested - you might see if Blue Collar Bobbers has something you like.


Or you might try rolling your own. If I knew then what I know now, I would have only purchased the rear-sets from RYCA. Several members have built their own rear-sets and mid-controls (depending on style of bike). I'd spend a few days going through the build threads for inspiration.

No.  All the Japanese 125s and 250s used aluminum plates. There were a few Honda 250s in the late 80s and 90s the hit particularly hard so some guys were using steel plates.  I tried it and it made a small but noticeable change.

RYCA was selling off their inventory last year - they got out of the business of making motorcycle parts and kits.  Last I saw they were looking for investors for some kind of design illustration software they were making or marketing....or something like that.

Deb and I arrived at our temporary home around 5PM.  We got unpacked and unloaded the bike.......and are resting on the patio recovering from our 1,212 miles of driving.  The owner Tom used to road race motorcycles - he moved his truck over so I could park my motorcycle in the garage......my kind of host!

MM and Springman have checked in and they are in Fredericksburg and they got MM's bike unloaded..

Our hosts (Tom and Kim) said it was 43 degrees this morning!  Tomorrow morning is forecast for the low 60's when we start riding, and a high of 88.

Problem, I'm not sure RYCA is offering the RR-1 Kit anymore.  They have changed there business direction.  No response yet to my email to them.

Anyone know what's going on with them?
Anyone have suggestions on other build kits? (Not Cafe racer - bobber or other).


I'm pretty sure RYCA is out of that business.

If you are looking for a kit you might try this place: https://bluecollarbobbers.com/explore-kits/suzuki-kits/

The drips may take a little bit of time to disappear. †The oil has seeped out of the crankcase joint and gone into the space between the spacer tube and engine mount bolt. †A few rides and heat cycles may be necessary to allow the oil to find it's way out.

Don't over-tighten the small bolts - they strip easily. †A small wrench and one hand is all that should be used.....just make sure they are snug and not gorilla grip tight! †


100% agree, and an inch-pound torque wrench is your friend!

Get oil in the cylinder before you rake the rings up and down it.
