  1. The CJ M1M 12 volt has the distributor outside on the left. CJ M1 6 volt is like the M72 but the dip stick is in a higher location than the M72. Think the early CJ M1 engines were in the same location as the M72.
  2. I put a set of 28's on my M-67 non/export. Switched the floats to brass. Bike is very easy to start and runs fine.
  3. Serious, I have dealt with Hubenhang (Jack) several times and had good luck. He seems to be a stand up guy.
  4. Thanks Kugelbake, In true Foilhead fashion i just grabbed a bottle of 40wt and used that. Who knows it may even help when on the logging roads in this area.
  5. Hi All, Anyone know the recommend amount of oil for each leg of the telescopic forks? Thanks
  6. Hi All, Looking for the metal covers that go over the springs of the rear shock absorbers on Dnepr MT-11 etc. Anyone have some used and preferably non-chromed ones to sell?
  7. Thanks Madoc, that's good to hear, just ordered a set of the 28's from Jack. Bought some parts a while back from him for the M1M I am building and he seems to be a good guy to deal with. Nice looking bikes on your site.
  8. Thanks guys for the help. Will order a set of the PZ28s from Jack, figure if they don't do the job at least will have a backup set for the MIM I am building. Is serious using the PZ28's on OHV engines? Might go ahead an install the K-37s just to see how the bike acts then swap when the 28's arrive.
  9. It was only for a temporary fix. My 301s are in bad shape, and was wondering if the K-37's would work OK until I repair or replace the 301's
  10. Wondering if anyone has tried replacing a set of the 301 Carbs on an old 650 with K-37's?
  11. Was trolling on Craigslist and ran across this. Think if i were in the LA area, would have to go by and have a look. http://losangeles.craigslist.org/lgb/mcy/573282329.html
  12. Avenger, if you still need one I have a spare one.
  13. Pulled one barrel and checked the existing gap 027 Might be the right time for new rings.
  14. Many thanks everyone for the information.
  15. Hi All, Just wondering what the best intake/exhaust valve clearance setting is for the old 650s. Also does anyone know what the proper piston ring gap is for them? Many Thanks
  16. I am in the process of putting together an M1M that I bought a few weeks ago. The fellow that had it told me there is around 1000 km on the engine and that they had tried it out by using it in a friends MT-16 while the dnepr engine was being rebuilt. Said he was impressed how well the flattie performed, said it had no problems pulling the MT-16 and at one point he had gotten the bike up to 70 with the CJ engine. This is my first Chang and sure looking forwards to seeing how they really are.
  17. Yes, on the plate a number matches the engine, then another that matches the frame. The bike was a non-runner when I bought it and rough, I doubt the guy that had it even knew. From what i remember the guy had bought some bikes and this was one of the one's he sold off to help pay for the others. I didn't know the numbers matched until I scraped off the old paint from the plate and could read them. Didn't even know it was an M72M until i found that under the paint on the plate as well. I hear you on the blank plates being available, but this one is far from new. I shipped 14 flathead bikes over from Kazakhstan and looked at at alot more. I NEVER saw one where the nunbers matched up! Bill
  18. Guess I lucked out. About 5 or 6 years ago bought a 1958 M72M in Germany. It was not restored and someone had put in a dnepr rev gear trans. looked as if it had been painted with a mop but the engine number matches the plate and the frame number matches the plate as well. I installed a K-750 engine and trans until i can get around to rebuilding the original. I shipped 14 flathead bikes over from Kazakhstan and looked at at alot more. I NEVER saw one where the nunbers matched up! Bill
  19. Was looking at an M-72 over on ebay and it got me to wondering. How hard is it to find an M-72 with the original frame and engine numbers matching the original id plate on the goose neck?
  20. Charlie, If you cant find one let me know, I'll have a look in my parts, think I may have a used one. Bob
  21. I'll try this again. Wow, killer hairdo, long pointy boots, Rock & Roll and a Dnepr, how could life get much better? Yeah! Look at the curve of the fender. It's a Dnepr!
  22. Yeah! Look at the curve of the fender. It's a Dnepr!
  23. Rich, There's even a sidecar bike in the corner of this one. Just gotta get a pair of those boots. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yHfQZs5Yx_I&NR=1
