MORE PHOTOS (NEW FRONT END)
Well her is my wifes new bike. I am unsure if she is going to want to fighter it or go full fairing. Time will tell. Currently the inside of the gas tank is rusty from sitting for so many years, and Im going to replace the fuel lines as a preventive measure. 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.
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: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
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.
And for the best Hawk info on the web...... http://www.hawkgtforum.com/
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:truestory:
If you have any Questions just ask as Ive Had mine completely apart!
thats bad ass
Because Im building the bike for my wife, and thats what she wanted. I stumbled across the fairing and was like " hey babe, you like this better or naked" she said she wanted the fairings. There were a few other fairings we were looking at, but were told by the hawk gurus stick with rvf400 stuff becuase its not as wide and looks alot better on the hawk. It will probably be a fighter for a month or two after its all together while I wait for funds to pick up the fairings, and who knows she might end up liking it naked. (another reason im waiting)its kool, but why?
Awesome, i figured people would like the few headlight they have more than anything, but im glad you found the link useful. From the review of their body work, its mixed in terms of quality, personally it sounds like another other "race fiberglass" reviews that ive read about. It will probably be alittle thin, and wavy.I fucking love that fairing kit!
*edit* Just checked out Tyga's site too, and I found a tail almost IDENTICAL to the one I was gonna attempt to build. If I could rep you, I would!! Cheers!
