So the last owner was an idiot and bedlinered some stuff and then painted over it so the bike will be getting stripped down and re-painted. Need some advice on what color to go with this time!

Also gotta pull alot of stuff off and clean up the rust. Hawaii is rough on any bare hardware etc.

Gonna be fun

Re: New project 929

Im stripping mine down this winter and doing an all white fairing kit, with everything else being carbon fiber, the seats are going to be custom made with the name of the bike as well as black carbon fiber looking material (way more comfortable than actual fiber though haha), white and black limited edition D3 grips I just put on, and carbon fiber respol logo on the bottom fairings on either side, with smoked out lights and windscreen. The possibilities are endless!!

Re: New project 929

Hey now calm down with the bed liner hating. I just bed linered my 954's frame, sub frame, lower bracket, and swing arm to save some money till I can get them PC'd. I actually think they turned out pretty good, but I am definitely not keeping it that way.

Bedliner? or plastidip. If you did the bedliner and prepped properly, good luck getting it off. Plastidip would work alot better because it will peel right off.

Spray can bed liner is what I used. Everything that I did in the bed liner will be blasted and then PC'd over the winter. I just wanted to be able to ride some this summer. I PM'd you a few pics, you can post them if you want. I don't like hijacking other people's threads.

Re: New project 929

Well I couldn't get the bed liner off the tail fairing, so I had to get another one and it just came in. So now onto the fun of paint and putting everything back together again.

Looking for some color scheme ideas.

I really like this two tone, but with a different color than the light gray on top.

Re: New project 929

Replaced the alternator cover gasket and now its leaking oil like crazy. I did notice that there were a couple of gouges on the mating surface so now i know why the previous owner had gallons of hondabond on there. any ideas for fixing this the right way? thicker gasket?

Re: New project 929

not sure but might be able to have the surface shaved at a machine shop. how bad are the gouges?

I appears that the lower case has been repaired before, possibly even changed. The gouges are not serious enough to warrant a weld to fill it.

The leak appears to have stopped, posisbly from the gasket swelling. I hope to ride today and see if it starts again.

Re: New project 929

yeah i was thinking if its not real bad you could probably even put a little jb weld in the groves n let it dry n file it smooth n hit it lightly with some sand paper. might sound kinda ghetto but i had a lowered 02 jetta that was super slammed n was on a gravel driveway n came down on a large rock that just busted a whole thru my oil pan, not like a little hole but a gaping pushed in rip kinda hole in the pan. i mixed up some jb weld n used a little window screen to reinforce it n it held for a long time. point being it held well on an oil exposed aluminium surface so surely a small amount filling the gouges in the mating surface would work fine. youd just need to get it smooth to the touch n nice n flat.

Re: New project 929

A little more Ultra-Gray allowed to pre-set for an hour on the engine side of the gasket seems to have sealed it up nicely.

With the first good ride, I have now noticed the head bearings are rough, gauge cluster fuse has blown from really crappy flush mount wiring, clutch cable is routed wrong and needs replacement.

Nothing like a nice project to keep you busy I suppose!

Re: New project 929

Nothing wrong with a good project, keeps you focused and dialed in with the machine. Keep up on the updates. Glad you solved the cover leak. Those can be pesky.

Re: New project 929

you know just curious, with all the bikes ive had over the years ive never replaced a clutch cable on a street bike. ive had untold clutch cables break on dirt bikes but never a street bike. how do you usually tell they are in need of replacement? just gets to the maxed out point on the adjustments or?....

Since the cable was routed wrong, its been rubbing on the front fairing support. Once the plastic around the cable is worn away, then metal sheathing inside starts rusting etc. At that point it is best to replace.

Adjustment changes are because of the clutch wearing, not usually the cable stretching.
