So, I'm Falkon45.
Just picked up a 99 zx7r project. It's technically, my second bike (first was a failed 77 Yamaha XS750 cafe project), And the first one I intend to finish and ride.
Unfortunately, it's also in the midst of three project cars, a few bicycle builds, and two kids. Lol.
Anyway, I'm a former Navy gas turbine mechanic, currently a maintenance tech on an oil platform, and trying to fit all these builds into daily life.
So far, I'm tearing down little stuff, And upgrading/modifying as needed. So far, the bike had a full muzzy exhaust and k&n filter, but not sure of the jet kit. Tearing down the carb soon to see. The usual clutch pushrod seal issue, and had a terrible naked Betty Boop paint job on it. I'll post pictures as soon as I get back into my Photobucket account.
It also has some sketchy wiring for the lights and starter relay I need to sort out.
I probably shouldn't have for this for my first bike, lol.
Anyway, glad to be here. Been lurking for the last month, and finally decided to join.
