I was sort of hoping that each of us could start our own thread containing pictures of our own bikes. I have just realised Tom is the only person who has started one & the rest of us are posting in his thread. Sorry Tom, if I am able I will clean it up & try to put each members pictures in to separate threads when I get home from work.
there is two way to shutdown engine one is to click off and the other one is with the key ... as i understood .. the off cutoff some - ( ground ) and it is better for electronic, the key cutoff the + ( power! ) ...
Hey Marlin very cool, I like the extra length on that swingarm, does not improve trackability but certainly improves streetability... also give the bike a more aggressive stance than with the stock wheel and swingarm.
So you used an FJ swingarm, and is the rear wheel an R6 or YZF? I am looking for a swingarm to retrofit, and looks like so far either the FJ1100/1200 or the genesis 87-88 FZR1000 swingarm is the way to go.
As posted here is my project, running with Fazer 750 motor from an '86 FZX, pretty cool addition... less power but more TQ . Have an '89 FZR1000 motor with entire wiring harness and EXUP exhaust to mount, so she should pump it out pretty good! Also have the Thundercat suspension to put in...
The good part however is that everything works quite well as-is, so I do not have to tear it all down, I can do it progressively.
vtr: Hi from cape town; new at forum's not at bike building; the insanity is contagious. Recently acquired a "1FU" FZ750 with dropped valves and decided cool to rebuild as a 911conversion sleeper, what we do to ourselves...

grahamfirestorm: Can anyone tell me why my bike doesn't seem to light up after 7000rpm like all the research I did before buying it.She has the standard 4 into 1 exhaust,carbs rebuilt with new jets,seals,floats,2 new diaphragms,all valve clearances checked and adjusted?

grahamfirestorm: She revs round to 10000rpm ok,but there is no urgency with it,my 1987 Kawasaki gpx750 was a lot quicker,and that was supposed to be 10-15 bhp down,ive been told the standard silencer and air filter are to blame but I don't believe that.

Graham : grahamfirestorm. Do you have standard size main jets fitted to your carbs? I would be tempted to go up a size or even two to see if it helps the bike pull stronger at high revs.
