Ordered K&N pods and bought new Yuasa battery. But there's some issues as well...
Like those damn side fairings. Wont fit. Headers are on the way. Don't know what to do - cut them shorter, cut them in half, make them wider at the bottom, or use racing upper from a newer gix. There's always an option to lose the fairings and build a fighter, but that's what everybody is doing!!
Ordered new Dunlop Sportmax Qualifier II's today. First time to buy some new rubber for the bike. I'm sick of changing a worn one for another partworn that will wear out in 1000 km.
Carb stuff isn't too difficult; I replaced needles with steeper ones, played with vacuum holes on the slides and now need main jets. 150 mains are too small!! Got to find a shop that has sizes 160+ available. Bike won't pull very good after 7500rpm but before that the front wheel has left the ground long ago. Got to send my order to somewhere to get some jets.
Also waiting for some tools to properly degree the cams in.
Filters are in place and I made a battery relocation plate. ECU/starter relay are under fron seat, but it may not be final.
Change of plan. Since I can't fit the fairing lowers due to exhaust header being in the way, and I don't want to cut them, the bike won't be fully faired. And since I want a fairing of some kind, I bought a front end off a SV1000, waiting to be delivered:
Standard rear end will remain though. Don't have time and money to start bullshitting with this, too!
Good news is that new rubber is fitted. I still want to lose that ugly hose that goes from the pump to the rad and I'm also looking for a straight radiator to fit instead of the curved one.
Got to find someone who can do the prep and paint things I need to paint as it's a very annoying thing for me to do. The preparation, to be specific - I can't spend hours sanding plastic just to find out I need more filler here and there... let's keep this job to the specialists. Doing the wheels, frame etc is much, MUCH more easier, especially with blasting cabinet available.
Not much time to get this out of the workshop, spring is just around the corner... even though it was snowing today.
