Are the Magna motor's cams geared or do they run off of chains?

Chain I WISH it was a gear driven timing setup. I too love that gear drive whine. The VFRs are badass, basically like a more performance take on the V4.

Bike is AWESOME. Yellow I wasnít expecting, and that looks great. The wheels scream 94í. The bags will make it look tough.

The hub problem.. i guess a torque wrench is too far into the future for some..
I like the "blade" style of wheels from back then, sleek and sexy. I think the bags I want are going to be a tight fit, if they fit at all because of the exhaust.

It made me a little sick to my stomach when I saw how bad the hub and bearing was, didn't make any noise at all though which is the weird thing about it, no indicators at all to say that it was bad.

I don't know either, it's fixed now though. 1 new hub, 2 new wheel bearings, and new brakes. I went with the powerstop slotted and drilled to lower brake temps and keep from warping them in the future, ceramic pads to generated less dust and bite a bit harder. This coupe will stay as stock, DD while i build the CB.

Had some down time at work, so I cleaned this up and sprayed it with VHT black.





Also cleaned on the interior of the CD7 some, I still haven't pulled the seats and carpet for pressure washing yet though.





This past weekend I decided I was tiered of the old saggy carpet on the door panels of the CB, so I took the carpet off. Scotch Brite, some LA's Totally Awesome cleaner, and a good amount of elbow grease cleaned 'em right up. I sprayed the lower pocket on the front, the speaker grills were already black.

Installed Cheddas Auto shifter cable bushings and pedal bushings on brake and clutch pedals today on the CB. Wow what a difference, I love it!

The shifter bushings make a huge difference. I have a set for the clutch and brake pedals. Just haven't had the time to swap them out yet. Glad to hear that they really do make an improvement though.

Very noticeable difference, the shifts are much crisper and more precise. The difference in the pedal bushings is also noticeable but to a lesser extent.

Filthy, pressure washing couldn't save this carpet, so........



Color change with SEM products Color Coat carpet spray paint/dye.

Black carpet is better-looking, anyway. I need to revisit that someday. I have my dyed carpet in the car now, but I also have a '98-'99 CL dark gray carpet, as well as the black carpet from my '03 CL. I need to make a day out of test-fitting them all and determining which I like best. Obviously the dyed one that came in the car will fit the best, but the other ones are so much nicer with the extra padding.

I would think the '98-'99 CL carpet would pretty much fit perfect. Yea I like black or dark grey interior better also, I'm thinking of doing my seats as well. Then I'll have black carpet and seats with tan and brown trim. What did you dye your carpet with?
