Clean the carbs, however just pouring gas in the carbs and she runs. Aside from the normal changing of the fluids and what Ive mentioned, current plans right now are front end swap (00 or newer USD) and a new sub/tail. Bike already has the 900 cbr rear shock swap. Well pictures, sorry about the shot of my ass.


I hope to have it rideable with the new front/sub/tail by xmas time, but funds will dictate that.

Cool another Hawk!!!
The tanks will do that on hawks and you cant get one from the factory anymore so clean yours up and "CREAM" it.
I see someone also removed the airbox and you are running filters.."uni" or "K&N"??? and as there is a Muzzy pipe I would open up the carbs and make sure these a jet kit installed.

Keep us posted on your progress

You are correct, It has Uni's but they seem to have seen better days, have k&n pods on the way. Yes its a muzzy pipe. And It does have a jet kit installed. I was looking around at the tank repair methods, and by the time I fix It i could do the common f2/f3 tank swap for the same price. So Ill be doing that route. Emailed the guys at today to pick up some stuff:

http://www.hiperform.com/

gonna pick up the subframe, batterybox, tail, res mount, seat pad, and possibly the undertail exhaust, just waiting for them to get back to me on a shipping quote. Additionally I think the wife wants this front upper and lower, Im letting her pick everything out.





Tray thanks man. Craigslist rocks, talk about 250 bucks well spent

Im familar with Rod @ hiperform, he has nice stuff but it a bit pricey. he live A couple blocks from me.

If you can.. Stop the order for the K&N's and buy UNI's they have been proven to flow better for this bike.

Check this guy out for a front end, a good man is hard to find on ebay. he good

As far as USD forks 600RR,F4i,F2,F3,954,929,RC51 and some Gsxr but im not sure which years.

Thanks for all the info man. Im looking locally first for the tank and front end so I dont have to pay stupid shipping prices.
Edit... Rod got back with me and its looking like ill order everything from him

So stick with the uni filters...I just tossed the old ones in the trash. Buddy of mine was price checking the k&n's he owes me some cash and he was just gonna take it off his tab, Ill consider just getting a new set of uni's.

When you clean the carbs be VERY carefull when handling the Vacume slides as they are 19 years old and the rubber will crack then the carb wont work right and you will have to buy new ones at $83 a piece..It suck I know

Thanks for the advice. I guess the part numbers I had for the K&N's didnt match, so ill just get another set of uni's. I talked with Rod today and ended up ordering:

underseat exhaust
subframe
res mount
seat pad
battery box
tail

Yes the total was spendy, however I am hoping to have this done by xmas, and with my schedule now I dont have the time to re-invent the wheel and do things myself to save a few bucks. Rod was a really cool guy talked to him about 10 min or so, and he said to call him if I ever have any other questions. I will probably dig into the carbs later this week. Im still trying to find a f2/f3 gas tank locally, and a complete front end. The people that had them either wanted to sell the whole bike, or had conventional forks. Will post updates as parts start coming in.

To be honest I have yet to take this one for a ride. they only come stock with 45ish HP, from what ive read you can attain 90ish for around 1k. I wasnt concerned about intial HP as this is my wifes first bike, 45hp should be plenty. The reason I bought it is the amount of potential these bikes have. My intial goal of staying under 2k total might have to get changed around, still tossing the idea around about getting the frame and swinger, and what not powdercoated.
