I stopped at Jeg's last night on the way home from work and today I went to my favorite Kawasaki shop. I've got a bunch of stuff to do!



Today's projects:









I'll be busy today. Installing the lock up clutch spacer, heat shield for the scavenge pump line, chain guard, FPR & mounting bracket, radiator (it's currently temp installed), oil cooler and quite a few other things! Yaaaaaay!

Thanks for the support. I'll be posting on this build at least until it's running, licensed and all her clothes are back on.

If I get any dyno footage I might post it here and down the road if there are any "competitions of speed" videos I will probably post some of them as well. I live 20 miles North of the "Wilmington Mile"

Here's a summary of yesterday's progress.


Oil cooler is permanently installed.









The scavenge line is permanently installed with the thermal shield installed.





FPR is installed. I put rubber between it and the bracket it sets on for anti-vibration purposes.





I also did alot of minor maintenance stuff on the bike. I went around it checking torques on everything from engine mount bolts to engine covers, etc....

I had two setbacks today. One was expected and one was completely unexpected.
Once I figure out what I need to do to resolve the unexpected one I'll post about them.

The expected one is a ducting issue. I'll post pics later. The unexpected is the shifter shaft is moving too much. I might have to drop the engine to fix it.

I'm trying to figure out what's messed up.

The expected issue is with the turbo piping. I had a different opinion of how to route it but was talked into the way it was routed. Now that I have the front fender on you can clearly see the issue.






















I've already selected the parts I need to correct this. Now I wait for the UPS guy.



I'm going to rotate the turbo like it is in the photo and reroute the tubing.

As for the other issue, I'll start tearing into it tomorrow and see where I get with it.

I figured out the shifter issue. It turns out it wasn't anything more than a simple oversight by me. And yes, I feel stupid. The clutch cover is the positive stop for the shifter shaft to keep it from sliding to the right. It has a circlip and washer that prevents it from sliding to the left. When you add the lock up clutch you need the spacer for the clutch cover to enable clearance for everything inside the cover. MTC also makes a spacer for the shifter shaft. It was in my box of parts but I forgot it when digging out the cover spacer. I'm sure I would've found it later but I just wasn't thinking about it last night. That's one of the problems with letting a project sit for long periods of time. I forget stuff.

Here's pictures without and with the spacer:





Everything's together and life is good. I was able to go ahead and finish the air shifter installation today as well:

While doing the shifter I was reminded of something I did a long time ago and it illustrates that I'm a cheap b@$t@^d. I lowered the 12 for drag racing and when you do that you need lowering links; which I have on the bike:



and you need a shorter kickstand. Several companies sell them for at least $100 each.

http://store.schnitzracing.com/categ...rotection.html

I went to a salvage yard and bought an old ZX7 kickstand, cut it to length and my brother welded it together. We had to add a spring mount to the kickstand as well, so I bought a bolt that we ground down and welded to it as the return spring mount. I painted it before installing it but the paint has faded and chipped in the last 10 years...Total cost to do the mod? about $12. This includes the bolt, kickstand and paint. You can see the weld bead in the photo:

There won't be much progress today because of that thing called work.

It always gets in the way.

I might have missed it, but do you have an expected hp range you should hit?
