My first 4 banger!
« on: March 09, 2018, 10:42:31 am »
I must admit, my heading is misleading.

I've owned several 4 bangers, but they all sit inside a 2500lb frame. Cars, mind you.

As far as bikes go, I've had two v twins (currently holding onto my 89’ Vulcan 750), and a twin cam, high revving SON OF A B-(actually, I never got the bike to run perfectly, continued to have carb issues with it til the day I killed her). Somehow over Christmas, I was gifted two 550F’s and a Yamaha from my father. Two complete (non running), and one 550 roller with engine (alas, non running).

I live in the good ole Midwest, and have been living here for my whole life. Mostly lived in Missouri until 2015 when I found my way towards the Fayetteville area. I’ve been in the auto industry for about 4 years, and have worked on bikes on and off for about 2 years.

Currently I have 3 projects. 2 CB550F’s and a Yamaha XJ650. I will try my hardest to stay attentive to this forum and post as many updates and pictures as possible. If you guys have any questions, please ask away!

Greetings from NE MN,

Yea more 550s.  Keep posting so you can upload pictures.  You can download service and parts manuals under downloads.

I just got my first bike which is a 4 banger. Excited to learn and grow with my 400/4... Have a long way to go!
