There are a few things I would like to get corrected on the next but overall this came out great.
The K was the first bike I 'lusted' over, always seeing one on my daily commute during summers to my job downtown. My father claims it was a 1990 H model but I could swear it was a 91/92 K bike. Anyways, it is the K I am on to next. Likely a bit slower as I have at least one job in the cue before that and I would like to do a nice job.
I will get sup some more pictures of this J when I have a chance.
Thanks to Honda434 for a ton of help with paint colors.
Great work there Evan, just in time for spring too.
BTW it's hard to tell from the pic but is that a Sudco/Hindle exhaust you're running? The general shape of the badging looks like it and I can't quite tell if there's spring connectors on the can or not.
If so a really great and rare pipe to be smokin', especially the 4:2:1 setup.
You can give Hindle a ring over there in ON and see if they have a replacement badge still hanging around. They had a fire sale a couple of years ago to move their vintage stuff but still may have parts for your pipe.
I would definitely not consider them to be 2nd rate; bought a 4:2:1 myself for my L1 I was racing back in the day. Their tag line when they came out was "Built from Jets" or something like that as Hindle was an aerospace guy before opening his own shop. I went with them because I had read an article in Roadracing World IIRC and it was explaining how he did not release a pipe model until they got better power out of it all along the curve vs. stock. Just like Muzzy did, which I very badly wanted, but could not really afford at the time. Needed Tires and tacos to go to the track...
The real selling point was another article in Motorcyclist and it was a pipe shootout with something like 23 contestants using a YZF750 test mule as a control. They measured peak HP and TQ, the overall curves of both, Db and general sound, weight, cost, and fit and finish. The Sudco (Hindle) was placing 1, 2, or 3 in each of the tests and ran just about even with the Muzzy performance wise, and it was damn near the lightest (Ti pipes weren't compared since they cost as much as an entire used sportbike back then).
For the price vs. the Muzzy I got the Sudco badged Hindle, plus a "free" jet kit and ignition advancer. It's nice that today I have been lucky enough to have both, plus a couple Ti Muzzys too. Time can be good.
But yeah, a great 7 pipe and I think you'll like it once you've ridden some miles on it.
Got my first bike on Saturday, 97 zx750p. Was told it did have problems, but seeing as I ain’t even got my license for the road yet sorting a few issues out while waiting was not a bother to me. Started early Sunday pottering about on it and straight away after removing the fuel...
I'm thinking of adding an European position lamp above the headlight on my US P8. Have a couple of questions. The lamp isn't an issue but the wiring from the harmess to the lamp. I can't find any sort of jumper harness listed anywhere so I am assuming that the wiring comes off the main...
Just picked up a second N1 to clean up and restore to its original glory. Needs some TLC but is complete. Only non OEM is the tail being painted green, which will get fixed. Loads of extras came with it as well, including Ohlins shock.
