Well my pipes are open right now but they are wrapped , when I put baffles in the bike was a dog , I mean it would not pull a greasy string out of a horses ass, alot of people say they have tuning issues with no back pressure but my bike runs 100 times better , maybe due to the carb mods I have done to it already but the bike has about 29k on it and its a 89 but man the pistons , clyinders valves , hell everything looked like new , the intake ports are spotless and the exhaust is damn close to it too .
Doubt I will surface the heads but new valve stem seals and maybe a touch up on the valves , ports look pretty open and not alot of porting even needs to be done .
Again not sure if I want to tear into the cam chest yet , its going to be bad weather this week hence why i tore it down and the more I tear into the longer it will be down .
I would much more prefer to have my guy bore the jugs but he is not set up to quickly bore THAT much , from 3in to 3.5/8 , thats ALOT boring , I like setting my own tolerance and ring gaps , specially with forged slugs

these were inline four cylinder bikes. early ones were 500 cc's and the later models were bumped to 550 cc's. really cool bikes that shared some of the same designs and styling as the Honda CB750. here's what they looked like.

Used to ride a Yamaha XS 500 like the one below but I put a second disc brake on the front, changed the front spring rate and adjustable rear shocks on it, also put a set of cafe racer type handlebars on it with a cafe racer style front fairing. It was fun to ride but it got a little to dangerous to ride in SWFL due to people not paying attention to who was on the road with them.

I had a Suzuki 500 that looked a lot like the first Honda you posted there. Went everywhere on that bike. Riding a Yamaha V-Star these days but gonna upgrade to a softail this summer.

1st bike I had a was a yamaha virage ? 550 v twin , man that thing was a dog !
MAYBE 80 flat out . Everything for that bike was very very expensive , the fuel petcock leaked when on and at the time I could not afford the several hundred dollar part to fix to I would ride till the carb filled then shut it till it started puttering lol . Only drove it a few miles everyday . I put it on craiglist for 500.00 but you had to take the 78 honda 550 also as I needed room . Man people cared less for the yamaha and were going nuts over the honda ?
Oh well live and learn .
I worked on a few rockets and newer v-twin honda / yamahas and I never really cared for riding bikes till I jumped on dads Harley and was hooked instantly .

I knew that chain needed to be replaced and I am goign to get a o-ring roller to free up some power , I know when the chain on the Golf cart sits that thing will hardly move , hit it with some lube and it rolls out lol
