Re: FZR Project
No pics yet (can't get them out of my e-mail box, works exchange server is down...again...Blah). Some of this was posted in the sigma thread but I'm going to use this thread for pics and updates and stuff.
I know it isn't a blade but I thought some of you may be interested in watching this bike transform. It should be a completly different animal when he gets done with it. I've got much respect for his plans with this bike, it isn't a little project. And, with it being his first bike, he's really set himself down a hard road. But, knowing him, it will get done and be even better then planned.
Some history on the bike:
Picked it up for $1600, dropped about $800 into it (new brakes/disks, rebuilt forks, re-jetted and synced carbs, etc).
When we picked it up the bike ran okay but backfired all the time and was loud as hell. It also wasn't making power until, around, 5000rpm. Now the power starts to really pull around 3000rpm. The bike then stopped running (jetting was so bad it fouled out the carbs). We picked it up down in St. Cloud, FL and had it back up here, and with our bike tech, by monday.
We didn't see it again for almost two weeks. Got it back and it runs like a dream. We need to put a new batt. in it but we'll have that today.
So far he has the following mods in the works (had some of the parts before he had the bike! )
2001 R6 Tail/seat
Seat custom mounted to hinge like a CBR cowl/seat
2002 R6 undertail/taillight
2000+ YZF 600 upper and headlight
WRX Blue Paint
Custom painted frame
Custom guage setup (sigma for speedo flushed into guage area)
It already has the following:
F2 Back Rim (With spricket, cush drive, etc)
Yosh Braided Steel highmount exhaust
K&N Air Filter
That's about it for now. I'll post updates as they roll in. So far he already has the R6 tail and seat at the house. He managed to snake the undertail and taillight for $50 shipped. Still looking for a good deal on the YZF upper and headlight.
Hopefully I can post the pics up soon.
