Default A little Sunday work...

So, I got super bored sitting around the house waiting for parts today so I decided to go out to the garage and have a brain storming session. As I'm wanting to hurry up and get my bike back on the road and i'm running short on build funds, I decided it was time to try and get a little creative. So here's what we've got.

I decided to run the stock gauges for now, the original metal frame that went behind the front fairing looked like it would be a great place to start.


Hard to see from this pic, but there's a bar across the top I think would work well for mounting some cheap lights. Just gonna take a grinder to the extra parts of the bracket and cut em off. I also need to figure out some kind of backing to put on the gauges and fab up some kind of mounting bracket.


Per Bob's advice, I gave the front wheel a quick lookover to check for any damage, For the life of me couldn't get the bolts out of the rotor to pull it off and check to see if it was straight. Other than that, only physical damage I could find was a scrape on the rim part going under the tire.



I like how the original tail looks, but unfortunately it looks like I have crappy knock off plastics that don't really fit well. For now I'm just gonna try modify them to fit and eventually look for a good deal on an OEM tail.




So, that's all I got for today... Time to continue to wait for parts.

I'm also trying to figure out exactly what whitey meant about how to see if the triples are tweaked.

Those rotor bolts will be lock tighted in. A bar on the end of your allen wrench should do the trick.

WOOT, just got a ZX6R shock, new tank, seat, and rear brake all for about $200 shipped... I'm thinking that's something of a decent deal, thank you furious last second eBay bidding Hopefully I can get those parts in before the weekend so I can get her up and running for a nice lil' Sunday ride. Regardless, gonna make a trip to the local auto part store later this week to pick up some loose odds and ends to finish up the air box removal/ filter install and Kleen air mod. Then it's alignment time, thanx again BOB, hopefully I can figure out those instructions and everything is easily repairable. Gonna probably do a ghetto exhaust just by throwing some baffle in a universal muffler tip and throwing that right on the headers. I know it's probably a bad idea, but it'll have to do for now.

Thanks, looks like i've got a lot of work to do. So i feel like a complete noob right now, I was writing to ask if that was a Single sided swing arm on there... Then I realized that's what you meant by SSSA... Lol, so now that I know what that means, what's USD? Also, what is that SSSA from? That thing sure is sexy!!!

Also, is that an Aztec headlight setup?

Default Twin fighters!!!

Sooo... I believe that there is a "fighterer" deep down inside of me that has just been itching to get out. So, let me update you all on the build. Like I said I'm currently waiting on some key parts to at least get the bike up and running. Been surfing the different forums getting ideas and looking for good deals on parts. Was super excited because I had found a full Area P CF exhaust for $290 shipped, $500 system, sadly by the time I got home from work the guy had e-mailed me and said he decided to sell it to someone else... FML! Oh well, feeling a little bummed but when I got home I noticed I had 3 boxes delivered to me today. Feeling like a kid on Christmas, I ripped into em to see what Santa had delivered. Finally got my gear Scorpion EXO-400 helmet and SS mesh jacket, only $150 total from motorcyclesuperstore. Jackets a little big in the shoulders though, so probably going to return it for a M. Also got my rear stand and die grinder as well. Still waiting on SA spools and front stand so I can really DW. Now for the good part Last week I had posted an add on craigslist to sell some of the random stuff I hadd stripped off my bike. Got a call from a guy who was trying to rebuild the same bike as mine. Same year, color, everything. He asks about the prices and never calls back. That was until today, he called me to ask if I knew anyone wanting to buy his bike. I told him I was interested, we haggled a little bit and VOILA... Picked up another bike for $450

Here's what I got:






Rear ends all busted up


Gauges busted out and wires were cut


Front and rear tire in great condition along with triples, forks, brakes, etc...


Tank and mirrors beat to h3ll...


lastly, the non squid version of me



So, from what I got from the guy... The bike somehow got in the middle of a relationship "dispute" which ended up in some good ole' hammer therapy. Cosmetically, not that great but I got alot of good parts I can use/sell out of it. I also now have a second project bike, even though the first is no where near complete. Thought about possibly turning it into a track bike. Here's the downside though, engine will not idle. It's took awhile cold, but I eventually got it to fire up but it would die if almost constant throttle wasn't applied. Took it for a ride around the block, partly b/c i missed riding so much, and noticed that it wasn't responding properly to the throttle. For instance, i'd be WOT and it'd be pulling like i was 1/4 to 1/2 throttle. Then all of the sudden it be like the engine cleared up and acceleration would match throttle. Not sure exactly what that is, but maybe the carbs need to be tuned?

Anyway, more work coming soon...
