    Nice. I had one, wish I hadn't sold it. There's not many around. Milling the head does alot & a pw fmf pipe will fit. You can also remove some of the clutch balls for a higher catch point.

    I was wondering about the FMF pipe, did you have one on a BW80? I did the clutch ball removal but have left the motor stock other than Boyesen reeds and 1mm off the head. How much did you mill off the head? Thanks guys...

    Fmf pipe bolts right on. 1mm I believe off the head. they're like 6 to 1 stock so it's really low. Porting is supposed to do major things on that motor too. I didn't have mine done.

    Good news about the pipe. My only worry with boosting the power is the clutch, it has new plates and fewer weights but is still wimpy.....

    The head is a good bit cheaper to do than the pipe. I pulled the stock end cap out & cut the spark arrestor out & put the tip back in. I also was running a pod filter with the jet to match. Like I said, wish I hadn't sold it.

    Yeah the pipe is expensive. I did remove the little bullet shaped piece from the front of the spark arrester and re-installed it. The reeds, air cleaner mods and spark arrestor mods all helped the power. Thanks for your input "46"

    That is really nice, I like the wheels. I have two of them myself, the one with no stickers is an '86 and has a chineese top end, I did some hillbilly porting with my dremel, air box mod and twin air filter and a 13t front sprocket, and no muffler or oil injection right now. It is a little rough looking, it was a mess when I bought it and I sanded the heck out of it and rattle canned it, but it is pretty stong. The other one is a '90, has airbox mod and spark arrestor out, runs fine but is no match for the other one. I moved the needle up one on both of them, it helped immensly as they are super rich stock. probably going to keep it closer to stock since it is really clean, the other one is my guinea pig. Going to do the head next...Click image for larger version.

    Yeah, the prices are stupid. I paid $225 for the first one, but it didn't have a seat, muffler and the top end was apart in a box. The second one was complete and just needed cleaned up, I had an add looking for parts on CL and the guy sold me the whole bike for $250. People on ebay want a fortune for most parts, except for the chineese top ends, but if you are persistent there are good deals and many of the PW parts are interchangeable. There is one on CL in Denver right now in about the same shape as my first one for $500...

    $250 for the 90!, sweet deal. Yeah, most of these are beat or broken. Finding a good one is tough since they didn't sell alot of them. I've always said "it's not what it cost, but what it's worth". Knowing the value of anything you buy is key. If you have to pay more for a good one, you'll get your money back if you take care of it. As for the 10" front rim, it's for a Yamaha quad. It has the same hole spacing and is heavy duty. It needs some spacers between the hub and rim to get it centered between the forks but looks clean and works great. Also tubeless which is a plus. The rear rim is 8" instead of the stock 7". I found it at Chaparral with a centered 3 hole mounting flange. I had to custom cut out the mounting flange to the same dimensions as the stock hub to get it to fit. That was a pain but there is no other option I know of to get an aluminum rear wheel. Lots of tire options in 8" and it's also tubeless.
