Started tearing the bike down for my winter build. I originally was going to do an EBOZ replica, but I think I am just doing what ever comes to mind. So far I am planning on doing a full tear down so I can get the frame powder coated. Not sure if I want to do brushed aluminum with clear, gun metal, or gloss black. I'm working on making some parts out of aluminum and cutting stuff off to drop weight. If money allows I am going to be adding some nifty go fast stuff as well.
Just a few basics, new muffler, jet kit, air tray, rear shock. I have a friend who is gonna help me mill some stuff like rear tank mount, dog bones, and other stuff.
I am almost done hacking up the subframe, and fabricating some brackets out of aluminum for the tail light, igniter and seat.
Alright, been a while since I updated but you know life can get busy.
So at this point I am going to do a black frame, and leave the wheels and clutch cover cosmic grey. I am thinking eventually I want to do a paint scheme similar to the 30th Anniversary Ninjas, but OD green instead of Kawi green and safety orange wheels. I was going to brush it but the frame had to many scratches and nicks in it, I think it would have looked like shit. The frame is completely torn down at this point, I am going to blast it this afternoon and hopefully drop it off to my friend for powder this weekend. After I get done re-doing my bathroom I am going to start tackling the little things that bothered me from last year like the wiring harness.
I have been working on getting some stuff designed for the bike on breaks at work :)
I have a bracket similar to the ZX-RR brackets that CCM has posted, but I think these will be easier and cheaper to make. Next up is the rear fuel tank bracket, and working out an idea for the lower radiator/fairing mounts.
Also does anyone know what band is used with that coil bracket? I know the kit coil bracket uses a battery band (pn#92072-1173 which has been replaced by 92072-1384). Is there anything else that I need?
Also does anyone know a good place to order a factory pro jet kit? I tried ordering one from solomoto parts but they don't carry it any more.
