Default Operation: Kwak Attack

Here we go:

Got the EX 500 a few years back, began working on it.....but lost interest in the project. Hey, I had a bike to ride and wanted to ride....not tinker.

So, time to man up and get cracking.
The bike is 50 miles away at my parents house right now as I have no where to store it.
Just moved my trailer(300 feet), so the three items in red are taking up alot of my time right now. Until those are finished, I'll only have one day a week(Sunday) to work on the bike.
As soon as its cleaned out, the storage building will be my garage.

I bought the bike without title because it was going to either be a stunt or strack bike.
Ever since I ran across this site, she's going on the road.
Of course, that's presuming she'll run...
I'm not sure how many hammer mechanics have put their grubby little paws all over the girl, but with 25,000 miles and 21 years on the clock, hopefully they didn't hurt her too bad.

I will have to get a bonded title, which just adds time and money to the process.

The tank has a couple pin holes and some internal surface rust. Also some Kreem residue(nasty shit!!!!!)
Gotta patch those holes first. Then gonna use the electro de-rustification method that Taiden used in this thread


Sunday:
--Install oil pan
--fill with motor blood
--If battery holds charge, turn the bitch over
--take more pics

Default Re: Operation: Kwak Attack

Had a good day yesterday. Didn't get everything done but 2 out of 3 ain't bad.
Got the oil pan and oil filled, but the battery was fucked. It would only charge to 4 volts.
Oh well, charged a battery overnight and it'll be shoehorned in the bike soon.

When I pulled the oil pan, the pick up screen was about 75% clogged
Should have got a pic, but my mitts were a tad grimy.
But like grandpa said,"boy, you ain't gone learn nuttin 'less ya get yer hands durty."
Good thing the oil pan needed replacing(drain threads were boogered up) or that clogged screen could have caused big problems later on.

So after removing the old pan and gasket, cleaning and installing the pick up screen and Ebay oil pan, she got filled up with moto-blood.

First-just rolled her out of the garage for the first time in two years.
Second pic-parts cleaned and ready to bolt on.
Third pic-done for the day. Can't even see the replaced parts. Fuck it! They're on the bike and crossed off the list.

i wus just thinking- im all for using what you got "wastnotwantnot" but with a rusty holey, gunked-up tank, maybe a dented off eb. might end up bein a better option once you add in time and clogged filters and all...
anyway i wuz just thinkin.
good luck- glad yer gonna road her.

I agree on the ebay tank, by the time you clean it and line it you could have gotten a good one off ebay.

Thought about buying an fleabay tank, but don't have the $$$$. It's gonna cost an extra $100 for the bonded title. If I didn't have to pay that, a better tank would probably be an option.
But the tank has no major rust, and is almost clean.
The pin holes will get fixed in the next week or so.

to be done Sunday:

--fix leaky carb boot with silicone RTV
--flush coolant
--refill coolant
--install battery
--see if she'll turn over

Couldn't wait til Sunday!!! Went and put the battery in......she turned over!!
Starter sounded a little weak but when I hit the button, shit was happening. She got spark, just needs some go-juice.
The carb boot was too deformed to be repaired--fleabay to the rescue.
gonna have to get some radiator hoses as the previous dipshit owner put the hose clamps on too tight and pinched the hoses. oh well, more shit to buy

new list for Sunday
--finish cleaning out tank
--wait for ebay parts
--I'll find something else
