CBR 954 Repsol Build

hey guys, about a month ago, i bout a 954 that had an engine knock for dirt cheap. turned out that instead of it being an engine knock, it was actually chewed up gears. instead of just replacing the gears, we ended up completely refurbishing the engine because it look like a few bits of the gear had gone up into the cylinder and had really scratched the walls. i thought i was going to have more trouble honing the cylinders because of the nikasil, however, a regular automotive hone did the job really easy. the bike runs strong as could be now. after all was said and done, it cost me $3000, so i'm pretty happy with it for that amount of money. let me know what you think

1st pic is the bike being torn down
2nd is the chewed up gears
3rd is engine assembly
4th is engine completely re assembled
5th is the bike as it sits

Re: CBR 954 Repsol Build

I really like it. The wheels need to be a more obnoxious orange though, like the Moto GP bikes.

Looks great though man.

Good to see a 954 saved from an early grave.
