Hi all- I just returned to TX after a 15-year hiatus and am glad to see this forum's up. Long ago in a galaxy far away, I was tangentially part of the original gang of what I gather has evolved into the now tremendous Magna Owners of Texas (fka SMOT), a group that had branched from the SABMAG's (aka 'maggots)... Any of those guys still here? Mike Guillory? Hillard? Who else?

Of course it's been forever. Back in mid-2002 I rode away from my beloved Lone Star State in the greatest '83 750cc oil-modded Sabre there was, and then spent wayyy too long up nawth. The process of winterization, storage, only being able to ride a certain percentage of the year, etc. got to be a drag for me as a garageless, NYC renter. I didn't think it would happen, but I did in fact stop riding for quite a while.

So the first order of business is: I need a bike! And soon. Although I'd been spoiled by the features of the early 80's dream machine, I don't think I'm quite mechanically-inclined enough for the upkeep of an antique. I'm in kind of a Viffer mood these days. I also saw an amazing, low-mileage Yamahammer F6 on the way home today... I checked the "for sale" area of this forum but most of the posts are older, plus I need something <1000cc's. If anyone is selling something reliable or knows of such a bike needing a taker, by all means let me know. And I hope no one minds my showing up to a ride if what I have isn't necessarily a Magna. Peace and it's great to be back home!

I know this isn't an ad for bike parts, but it goes along with a bike outing. My wife and I have opened a new tasting room in Driftwood, right off FM150. We showcase 3 breweries, 2 wineries, a meadery and a cidery, all from Texas, and rotate these out every 1-2 months. We have beers on tap you won't find anywhere else. There are some beautiful routes around our area for a great saturday ride and we would love to have you stop by to take a little break. Mention that you are a moot member and I'll give you a free flight-sized sample.

Cheers

I have been also servicing my DR650 and have bred hatred of manuals as a result.... you're right, I should look.

I've never done it... But I'm pretty sure if you have a piston in a caliper that's sticking then you're gonna have to drain the entire brake system in order to service that caliper and then bleed the brakes and maybe even the banjo bolt on the caliper?  Have you checked the Magna service manual?
