Own Two Lee Doxey

I restored two Suzuki RE5s because I choose to be different, ride something rare and unusual and .' unconventional especially on the 'M' model as is the sound from the engine. Surprisingly, the ride and handling are very good and the single rotor produces plenty of torque for relaxed riding. Once sot up properly an RE5 can be very reliable and should be good for around 100,000 miles if maintained correctly the golden rule is not to skimp on oil changes and warm up the engine before use. Park up...

Rg500 Project

On an RG500 it can lead to a host of expensive problems. Nobody likes to open the garage or shed door to find a puddle of fuel underneath their bike. Yet that's what most owners of RG500s will suffer at some point. It's a common fault and the solution is simple but if it's not fixed can cause a lot of damage. The causes are shared between leaking carb float valves and a dripping fuel tap. Outwardly, fuel accumulates in the bellypan, and then dissolves it....

Kawasaki Z650

Kawasaki Z650 Rebuild

CMM reader Jim Croft has recently finished a rebuild on a Kawasaki Z650F1. The bike was bought off eBay after spending the last 15 years of its life or death in a shed. The carbs had never been drained when it was put away and tho insides were coated in a foul smelling sludge that meant sourcing a second-hand set On dismantling, I found the engine had been taken beyond repair with burnt out valve seats, ground down shims and valves. The bottom end had wear too. A suitable donor engine that...

Squish Bands

Not all classic two-strokes have squish-type heads. For example, the GT750 doesn't. The squish area of a cylinder head is the area around the outside of the domed combustion chamber. The purpose of this is to squish, or squeeze, the fuel air mixture towards the spark plug in the centre of the combustion chamber. Without a squish-type head it would be very difficult to get a reasonable compression without a very flat, inefficiently shaped combustion chamber. The...

Riding The Bikes Today

The first thing you notice about both of these bikes is the gulf between them in terms of character. While they may well both be two-stroke triples, the factories that built them went about their charges in very different manners. The bike in the blue comer is pared to a minimum and feels skinny and lithe. The bike in the red comer is lavishly appointed and comfortable by comparison. However, despite tho disparity in chassis design, the sound of their two-stroke triple cylinder engines being...

Oil And Gears

Most of us will use good quality two or four-stroke oil in our bike engines but how many consider what goes into gearboxes if they are separately lubricated It's worth taking the time to select the best oil for your gearbox and if necessary seek input from someone who understands old bikes. Bikes that share their oil twixt engine and box inevitably give it a hard time gears by their very nature tend to shear the viscosity modifiers that are used in multi-grades and generally speaking car...

Made Easy

We thought about letting Bruce loose with a spray gun.Then we thought again.Taking the projeot bike to a professional painter seemed a far more sensible thing to do. I've got an idea. Who wants to go endurance racing with our project bike True, we'd get obliterated on the straights and corners would probably present something of a challenge, but no one would be able to touch us in the workshop department.

Suzuki Re5 Plug Adapter

The plug adapter for the RE5 is stainless and beautifully made - it looks a gold colour in the photo because of the lighting. The outside fits a 30mm wrench and the inside has clearance for a regular socket wrench on the plug. Being stainless, it is important to use a dollop of nti-Seize lubricant on the threads to prevent galvanic corrosion between adapter and Engine Cases. There are two of them in the shot above so you can see the whole thing. The adapter threads into the original plug hole...

1TW Thanks for the advice earlier on welding mm engine mounts for a classic custom prcject I wanted to build. I decided to go the route of buying a rolling chassis with an engine already installed CB750 BANDIT 600cc . The problem is I stupidly bought it with no papers reg number and took it at the guys word and a hand shake that it was 100 legit. The problems are that I have no idea what model the bandit 600 engine is N71 7-1071 and I don't want to start buying parts until I know they will work...

We Raced An Re5

Suzuki Re5 Engine Proper Unit

Just what was going through Ray Battersby's mind when it occurred to him to race a Wankel-engined Suzuki RE5 he doesn't reveal. But in 1976, soon after he started working as Heron Suzukis technical representative, he reckoned it would be novel, quirky and like its engine, a little eccentric. Trouble was that the RE5 was no racer, by far. It was underpowered and slow off the mark, recalls Ray. It was heavy and bulky. It was complex, with a carburettor that had 117 jets and 15 air bleed systems....
