Hi Ian, just wanna say the paintwork was done by Ste at Esoteric m/c paint in Blackpool, it cost about 500 odd quid and the finish and attention to detail is superb, I was stunned when I went to collect it. Ste is a top bloke, he has also painted my SDR200 (R7 scheme) and he will be getting my FS1E to do aswell shortly.
Robbo, Looked at this last night and have only just picked my jaw up, thats a fantastic build and apart from the paint exactly what I had in mind for mine, if I ever actually land one. I have a rake of questions for you so keep you inbox clear. Good work fella.
Hope you don't mind but I've put a picture up on my facebook page have a look its getting some good feedback.
doc, got the front sprocket from www.motorradschwingen.de they make them to your spec without any fuss and quick too, aren't cheap but they never are in my experience. It has 5mm offset but i had to machine 5mm off the sprocket carrier too.
number6, pleased you like it , no i dont mind the facebook pic, i've got a couple of questions for you too as it happens.
Bloody nice job that . I picked up a copy of "practical sportbikes" here in Los Angeles and blow me down - there is your stunner in all its glory . I have an '85 fz750 and an '87 fzr1000 motor - can i mix and match to make a big bore engine with a 6 speed tranny without machining anything?. Once again - nice build mate !.
Apparently there is a problem with con rod clearance on the early motors so machining would be necessary on your 85 bottom end. I believe it is still possible but not nearly as simple as using a later FZ motor.
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.

2manyprojects: Hi all, just aqquired 2 FZ's (only one for me, one for nephew). Have a stable full of bikes, I do have a problem, some say its madness! Am based in North Devon, yes where its always raining! Lol😂

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.
