My latest 929rr

Well it's been awhile since I've posted and I figured I would add some content.

I have rebuilt/revived more than a few bikes since I last posted,mainly because I get all excited and can't contain myself with a new rr I'm my hands.

Last night I picked up a neglected 2000 929,supposedly it's been built up to a 1100cc.I'm not real sure the one thing I am sure of is,it won't start fuel pump wont prime. not sure about spark,battery is dead fairing is trash and missing the belly.the bike has a slip on and a new rear tire,the wheels are polished.the gauges read 25000 miles .fuel tank leaks around the sending unit chain is rusted but not to the point it won't move.this is all at first glance I haven't had time to look it over really good.

My plans as far as the bike goes is to breath new life in this baby.At 17 years old it's gonna be a process for sure but this is my passion. I'll keep the updates coming and try my best to go step by step with pics and videos of everything I do.I will upload some pics of the new addition to my family.

So here's a few pics I got early this morning the bike it's self has not made it to the garage yet and is in the shed till I can make some room to dig deep.when I picked up the bike all it would do was crank and the guy acted like he didn't know why it wouldn't fire,his add on Craigslist stated that it ran great but would not idle ....well that's pretty normal when buying a bike in this condition so no harm.

Last night I gave it quick look after work and realized that the air box was flopping around so I pulled that and realized the trotted body was just sitting on top off the engine and not mounted correctly ....hmm wonder why it wouldn't idle...
When I initially seen the bike I didnt think that I heard the fuel pump prime but I didn't say anything to the guy....

So I tried to start it and no pump prime hmmm,classic issue with any efi bike that's suffered ignorance and neglect...I noticed right away that this isn't the stock ignition and it's a ebay special and I've been down this road.
so I gave it a whirl with gas down its throat and no joy.
I then pulled the #1 coil and put a plug in it that I had laying around and ,what do you....no spark.

I know I know this ebay ignition is probably the reason because I'm sure there's no resistor in it to drop it down to 9v to satisfy the ecu.I'll come back and test it when I get a chance and probably ramrod a resistor inline.that's about as far as I've got.

Won't let me upload pics right now

Congrats on the new baby. I'll keep an eye on this one =) Always a struggle when you pick up a very neglected bike =(

Re: My latest 929rr

Thanks brother...most people wouldn't even consider a bike in this condition but I purposely seek these out...it's a good hobby and it usually pays well in the end.

Re: My latest 929rr

Ok here we go these are all I have right now I haven't had time to play lately so these are all I have for now...
I did try and splice in a 2.2k ohm resistor on the pink wire of the ebay ignition and got 9 volts but still no spark...ecm throws either 9 or ten codes ,but I haven't cleared them so hopefully I'll get all that worked out....
I feel like one of the other 929s did this same thing and it was something really simple

Re: My latest 929rr

So today j got home and the sun was still up so I gave it a look and found the cam pulse generator with a broken wire where someone had used a crimp connector and it failed....soldered that and got spark...dumped some gas and heard a few growls from it....the tank has 3 sheared bolts on the sending unit so it leaks pretty bad ,so the tank is off...so I dumped a small mount of gas down the throttle bodies and I'm pretty sure I flooded it and fouled the plugs pretty good I turned it over a few more times and didn't get a pop or anything so I gave up to let em dry for a bit and after 25 or 30 mins still nothing so I'm pretty sure I need to clean the plugs off or just get some new...I'll get some better pics soon and show some of the pros and cons of this diamond in the rough

Re: My latest 929rr

She definitely looks a bit rough =) I am not always so keen to jump on a grenade... but once in a while I get the fever too =) I mostly satiate this urge by ripping into Serenity and doing some kind of major maintenance item early or deep cleaning her (usually once a year in the winter)

Re: My latest 929rr

I got it fired up today and ran like a blade should...
Its definitely not a jewel YET but Ill make fast work of her.I would rather consider it a project than jumping on a grenade.Most people play video games and go out to the bars to drink,I'd much rather revive a blade back to its glory...and when I feel it's just to much I always have my 06 to tend to....I'll have to resize all my pics of the 06 to up load but will shortly...

So today to get the 929 fired I put some new plugs in it and held the fuel pump in my hand while keeping the bowl full of fuel through 2 heat cycles just to see how she would act.
One of my first order of business will be to combine the old stock ignition with the new ebay ignition and go have my blank honda keys cut to work in it and while I have the top triple off jll probably order some fork seals possibly a new fork setup if the price is right then I'll go to cleaning up the harness and get a set of monster fairings and so on...it's gonna be a good time bringing the fire back to the blade

Re: My latest 929rr

Looks mostly like she just needs a good scrubbing... I would love to get my hands on a 29er..... be great to have both a 29 and 54 lurking about =)

Projects are definitely fun. I have had more than one in my life =) I think my first that I really tore into, cleaned, painted bits, and did major disassembly on was an old '74 KZ400... picked it up for $200 not running lol.
