Dunno if you've ever tried this stuff. I use it to seal clamp hoses and crush gaskets(valve covers mostly). Aviation gasket sealer. NAPA. Even use it on head gaskets around the oil gallery passages. Aircraft don't like leaks, no place to pull over.

edit:  Permatex makes this too. Same stuff as far as I know.

editedit: Ok, I used to use it on everything, and still do. Even dipped head bolts in it, if they went into water or oil passages.

Ok, ordered clutch mc rebuild kit and a new old clutch slave cyl.  Should solve all my clutch related issues. Need to order blinkers and maybe these mufflers this weekend: Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com/itm/253083576244

 

As far as looks, pretty sure I'm gonna black it out. I'll have the fork lowers, wheels, fenders and backrest powder coated satin black and have the tank and side covers done in high gloss black for a little contrast. Debating on keeping the rectangle headlight and putting a sealed LED light in it or switching to a 6" round headlight.... would also like to put a later year fender on but not sure if it will work with the seat... pics once I make some more visible progress.

 

Bonus: the 1984 was the only year with 3.40:1 gear in the rear end, all others had 3.14:1. The 3.40 was put in to compensate for the 700cc motor but the following year they added a tooth to the countershaft instead and went back to 3.14:1. Because I have a 750 motor swapped in it will have shorter gearing than a stock 750 or 700, so should be quicker off the line.

You're likely gonna have to make your own exhaust gaskets, I couldn't find any new ones anywhere. The final drive swap is/was a common mod, my friend did it to his V65. These bikes weren't made for chasing top speed, might as well get them torques off the line. I say keep the rectangular headlight. That and the stereo horns just scream "MID 80s HONDA!" and I love it. I enjoy seeing your updates, they remind me of working on mine. "Well, I fixed that, but now this, this, and this are wabbajacked."

Not entirely sure about the outlet gaskets, but the ones between the exhaust collector and the mufflers. Tried several different retailers that listed the part as "in stock" but nobody had it. When I looked on eBay, there was one gasket. I needed two. So I just left the originals.

My experience was that the muffler packing gaskets are always hard to find. I don't know why. I do remember being very careful with the ones I had already in there, knowing they would be a problem if damaged. Nothing wrong with using the ones you have, but you might notice some exhaust gases getting past and leaving marks on the pipes. Try these two for hard to find Honda parts:

or for classic bikes: Find the part number and google search for the part number. I've used that to find stuff when only a few were available anywhere. Put parentheses around the part number to lock it in on the search.

      For sale is my ZX6R GPR V4 Steering Damper kit.  It came off my 2008 track/race bike that i sold.
       
      It works great, and is in great shape.
       
      The only thing i dont have with it for some god forsaken reason is the steering stem nut, but the one you have on it right now should work just fine (well, that's what I used anyway).
       
      It's a black and red one, if that matters to you.
       
      If you buy this, it will make your bike not head shake violently as you fly through the kink at Nelson. or as you exit the carousel at nelson. or as your get on the gas out of turn 13 at nelson. or as you hit all those fucking bumps entering turn 4 at nelson.
       
      It is $250 firm. shipping is extra. i can bring it to basically every motoseries event, or you can pick it up, or you can pay to have me ship it to you.  for $5 extra, i will do an impression of that tard monster from goonies when he's all like "heeeyyyy you guyyyyzzzz".  goonies tard monster impression and GPR kit must be purchased together, I will not part out. They belong together, forever.
