Like Junkie, I'm a little concerned with the shock linkages. Please either fabricate some new ones or weld over all the joins ;-)

As an aside, these water-cooled powerplants are superb, and capable of making some very serious power. Much of the tech that went into these engines was what was used in the GSX1300R...

I hear you guys. In the mean time, my MIG's gas ran outfrom having to weld other things too. Still have lots of work to do but will weld it up nicely once I get a refill. Money is a little tight at the moment.

In Greek mythology, a phoenix is a long-lived bird that cyclically regenerates or is otherwise born again. Associated with the Sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor.

I have seen that these motors are highly tunable...and speaking of the GSX1300R...I do in fact have a Gen 1

Got the bike back this morning with the Y-connector and link pipe done. This guy did a stunning job for me and I totally love it.

Last week we started building our own rear seat cowl. Still a bit of work but getting there.

Got a fair bit done today. Cleaned up the wiring and taped up al the pieces where previous insulation tapes came loose and where I had to open up a bit too. But I used a fabric tape...first time using it but quite like it. Very very sticky and still flexible.

During the last 2 or 3 weeks we stripped the old paint off and sanded etc. We were able to start doing primer during the week and today we even managed to get the 2 side fairings painted in color. It looks so awesome in the sun and I love it!

Yesterday we did some more painting. Can't wait to see her get back together again. But there is still a fair bit to do. We now have to get everything on the bike temporarily so that we can get the masking lines for the black correct.

I also drilled out 2 broken bolts. The one was the lower bolt for the right side foot peg unit and the other in the fairing mounting "boss" at the top right of the motor. Now I just need to fabricate that little bracket as it is missing.
