Default Jmartin's '82 KZ1000 Build

Alright...here goes nothing

First proof of date



The plan for this is very simple. Make it a finished version of this:



I am using 900RR forks and wheels. ZRX swingarm and front fairing. Supertrapp exhaust. I am also working carbon fiber side covers and a carbon front fender.

So work was done!! I already had it stripped down back to a bare frame.



Then I set it on the work bench and started removing the factory kickstand to make room for the 900RR kickstand. It will be put farther forward on the frame to make room for the shift linkage.





Then I marked and drilled two holes then welding in some spacers for support.



Then after smoothing some things out and a good rinse to get all of the dust off I got ready for some paint.



And this is where I left off for the day

So I fully intended to D some W last night after work but wound up working late instead.

The plan is to get the engine cleaned up and back in the frame. Then get the swingarm cleaned up and back in as well. I have to replace the steering stem bearings and then will paint the tripled and get them back on the bike. Once I have a roller again I will start on son of the truck stuff. I've got to finish my carbon fiber side covers and fender. Also have to get the dent out of the tank and then strip it down to bare metal.

In the meantime I found a set of ZRX shocks on eBay with a $100 starting bid. I bid a max bid of $175 and got them for $157.50. They normally sell for around $300 so I call that a good buy.

Got a few things done in the shop today. I actually got to test out my new heater since fall has finally decided to show up and its in the low 40s right now. I'm terrible at taking pics sometimes because I get so focused but I will show you what I have.

I started with cleaning the engine up:



It was pretty nasty from just sitting in the shop for a year. I got it all cleaned up and also got the swing arm as clean as I could. All I was using was some simple green, shop towels, and a wire brush.



And all back together:



And with the new kickstand bolted up:



Looks like its going to work out perfect. I wont know for sure until I get it back on the ground. I also ordered new steering bearings and one of many ELR decals

Got a bit done yesterday. Nothing really picture worthy though. I got the wiring harness put back in and hooked up for the most part. I am waiting to get the front end back on before I hook up the headlight and gauges. I still need to make new set of plug wires and finish tidying the harness up.

Forgot to add a link for the progress before the build off started: http://www.customfighters.com/forums...d.php?t=115385

Rear sets back on



Front end and exhaust on



I found out a few days ago that you dont drop a needle bearing. They tend to bust apart.

I found the slow leak in both tires. The valve cores were loose. Tightened them up and temporarily mounted the wheels to check the lean angle of the new kickstand. It worked out perfectly. Also wound up gaining about an inch with the ZRX shocks. I think the stance is pretty spot on.

Was out playing army this passed weekend so nothing huge. I got the rear wheel mounted hopefully for the last time. I also wasn't very happy with my restarts so I bought a set of Sato knockoffs that are fully adjustable

Got some work done today even though i am dealing with a semi hurt back. I got the front wheel mounted back as well as the handle bars and front brakes. I also got the rear sets mounted. They are much nicer than what I had on there


Also put everything together to make sure everything would fit with the new tank



Pretty well pleased with how it's all coming together
