I’ve had the fun of 14,000 mi. on my GR650 and I agree with your report in part. Yes, the cam covers weep a bit but the cylinder base gasket weep that occurred at 4000 mi. was cured by re-torquing the head. The preload adjuster went out at about 10,000 mi.

De Visor
$6.95
Gold Belt’s latest visor has hidden snaps and extends to the helmet’s shell to keep out mud and water. It’s long, to keep the other guy’s roost out of your face, and the smokecolored model features a seethrough tip. There’s a DeVisor to fit Moto 3s, Moto 4s and open-face Bell helmets. They come in smoke, red, white or yellow for $6.95 at dealers.

Total taping
$5.95
This strange sounding manual by Jeff Spencer, trainer for Honda’s motocross team, gives step-by-step instruction on the art of taping for injury prevention. It’s a 5 1/2 inch by 8 1/2 inch book with spiral binding, just the right size and durable enough to take to the race track. It sells for $5.95 plus $1.50 for shipping (add 6 percent sales tax for California residents.) Contact Total Training, P.O. Box 3721, Glendale, Calif. 91201.

Pacifico Air-Wedge
$84.95
The Air-Wedge is designed for Kawasaki’s GPz750 and 1100. It's made of high-impact ABS plastic, painted with high-luster polyurethane in matching GPz colors and with GPz graphics. The AirWedge sells for $84.95. From Pacifico, Inc., 1625 S.E. Hogan Rd., Gresham, Ore. 97030. Phone(503) 6665502.

SuperTrapp’s new line of 4-into-1 exhausts for Hondas, Kawasakis, Suzukis and Yamahas feature doublewall headpipes to reduce chrome discoloration. The collector design increases cornering clearance and the mechanical baffle reduces noise and maintenance.

Cycle World recently received some information from Japan, a kind of state-of-the-industry report, and if we read between the lines correctly, two things are apparent: 1) The days of the super-discounted, year-old models are just about over, and 2) in the future, fewer motorcycles will be made but they’ll cost appreciably more.

Specification sheets display lots of useful numbers, but those numbers don’t always tell the whole story. Sometimes, a spec sheet needs yet another number, one that indicates how much fun a bike is to ride. And on a fun scale of one to 10, Yamaha’s RZ350 rates a perfect 10.

If you had to sum up Open-class motocross bikes in just one word, it would be power—dirt-roosting, arm-stretching, wheel-spinning power. Everyone knows that 125s sometimes turn faster lap times and 250s are easier to ride, but Open-class riders could care less; they’ve got that power.

You want to talk about fast motorcycles? I’ll tell you about fast motorcycles. The yellow-and-black Yamaha roadracer you see here is what I call a fast motorcycle. How fast? Well, there’s a place along the front straightaway at Daytona International Speedway where a radar gun times racebikes.

Yamaha’s OW69, the winning motorcycle at Daytona in 1983 and 1984, is a roadracing rocketship. Its brutally fast engine will spin the bike’s fat rear slick most of the way down Daytona’s long back straight to the chicane, a half-mile away.

At a rock-and-roll concert many years ago, Jerry Lee Lewis was the opening act, followed by Chuck Berry. Lewis, like most big-name performers, preferred to close a show rather than open it, since the last act of the night always has the opportunity to be the most spectacular.

For the past couple of years, you could pretty much predict that two things would happen in 250-class motocross: Honda’s CR250R would be the best bike in the class; and Honda’s CR250R would be entirely different from the previous year’s model.

When Kenny Roberts and Gary Scott waged their close battles a decade ago, it was reminiscent of another legendary rivalry, one between two Californians, Sam Arena and Ed Kretz, Sr. For five years prior to World War II and three years after it, Arena raced Harley-Davidsons almost exclusively in California, where he completely dominated the half-miles.

After three years of trying, Honda’s dirt-track effort finally is on the right track. It seemed that way, at least, at the third and fourth dirt-track races of the Camel Pro season, the Ascot TT and the Sacramento Mile. Word in the pits at Ascot was that Honda had been working extensively with the XL600-based TT bikes since the Houston series openers, trying to coax more power from the engines.

I’ve had to push start and jump start my 1983 Nighthawk 650 several times due to a weak battery caused by the stop-and-go city driving I do. My dealer’s solution for this was a toggle switch to turn off the headlamp and a suggestion that I change my driving habits and rev the engine higher.
