So this whole thing started with winning a prize in a raffle, which then led to smart decision of " I must get myself a Bandit 1200 / GSXR 750 / GSXR 1100 project bike!"
Through the magic of Facebook and OSS, I ended up in contact with a very nice chap who had this unfinished project:
Several phone calls later, bought blind as it was a fair bit away, it was delivered to me, along with several boxes of the various bits and bobs needing fitted to the bike.
Some pics after it arrived and getting a bit of check over:
So basic spec so far is:
GSX-R 750 L Frame, Front end, Rear end & suspension
GSX-R 1100 L 1127cc engine done approx 15k
GSX-R 750 M Tank, rear panels and top fairing.
Short term plans are to get it roadworthy and MoT'd.
Long term plans are still to be determined by main driver for the project, as its still to arrive...
Currently working through a list of jobs;
Wiring missing for horn - now wired up and working
No rear brake switch - waiting on a banjo pressure switch - cleaner and more reliable.
No. 3 Float bowl leaking, has been araldited (or something in the past) - added some liquid metal to see if that holds. If not will need to find a replacement bowl.
Clutch wont bleed. - fitted new seal kit to slave cylinder.
Slave cylinder jamming against front sprocket - eventually worked out that pushrod was too short (90mm) and casing was from a 1052 slabbie.
Slingshot casing and pushrod (101.5mm) fitted and clutch slave operating.
Still to do:
clutch not working - needs investigation, probably just needs freeing up
Buy some indicators
Wire up indicators
Work out what else needs doings, its definitely one step forwards 2 steps back as I keep finding more bits and bobs to do!
That's it so far!
