Re: Project 929 complete rebuild-motor

Theses a special release agent you're supposed to spray on the tires to make it peel off easily. It works on cars but I wouldn't use it on bike tires because you're spraying it on the tread. I'm not a fan of anything that can impact traction.

msf0002 The fairings are Chinese but leave a lot to be desired mostly on the paint quality. The fitment was actually pretty damn good. I will post a picture of what they are. I got them because they were cheap and in the USA because I didn’t want to wait months for them to be shipped from China. Got them in about a week. The rims are gold peel coat from rustoleum(purchased at autozone) it was my first experiment with plastidip like product and overall I didn’t do a great job but I was ready to get it back on the road so I will be redoing them in the off season or maybe powdercoat.

Re: Project 929 complete rebuild-motor

If you take your time fitting them the Chinese stuff can be quite good, it’s never OEM quality but the results are certainly good enough especially for the price. My RR-R was rebuilt with Chinese bodywork and with some decent paintwork on the tank and wheels the results were good.

Re: Project 929 complete rebuild-motor

Are these the internet fairings? from far away the fitment looks decent.

msf0002 She is running as of today, plan to take her for a ride tomorrow if all goes well. I’m so ready to be done with this, I have been neglecting all my other responsibilities 😂

msf0002 Another update, it’s all together but I had the no fuel pump prime issues, it was the ecu. Still wasn’t firing up except a tiny bit on starter fluid. Fuel pressure regulator was bad, one coil was bad and the respective spark plug was toast. Everything should be here by Tuesday. 🤷‍♂️

Great progress msf.

Always good to see a relic coming together. Especially like the gold wheels.

msf0002 Someone asked about the 954 swingarm swap. I learned a lesson.... you have to get the triangle from the 954 and the rear brake mount. There are a couple bearings that are different as well and I ordered them but I think you could use the 929 bearings if you want. Someone might be able to chime in on this but I didn’t see any reason why. If you look at the 929 vs 954 part diagrams you will see what I mean. I ended up spending a lot of money on new bearings and dust seals because the swingarm I got didnt have them installed. Plus it was a huge pain in the ass pressing them in and out (and I have a 20 ton press at my disposal.) I would have spent a little more for a complete swingarm in retrospect. The chain slider is different as well.

msf0002 Well guys it has been a journey let me tell you. I’m almost at the end now but I’m pretty sure the issue that took her out 5 years ago was in fact the ecu. I’ve got her all back together now but the forks gave me a hell of a time(as mentioned in my “front fork damper bolt” post) but I got that sorted out. I spent all day today trying to get the fuel pump to prime with various resistors on the pink wire and I bounced all around 9v and still nothing. Just looking for some advice on anything else I should try before I plop down the money for a new (used) ecu. I have read and reread all the no fuel pump prime posts over the last few months while I have been doing this re(build) but I just want to make certain there isn’t anything besides the pink wire and ecu that will cause the fuel pump to not prime. I am going to wake up in the morning and go buy some starter fluid to see if I can get her to fire. If she does I am going to jump the fuel pump (I already did and I know it works) to see if I can get her to run. If you have any suggestions I’m not covering I greatly appreciate it.

msf0002 More parts today and tomorrow, can’t wait to get my frame and swingarm back from powder this weekend (hopefully.)
