Haha! Yeah about 11 months

We have snow about 4-5 months. The riding season starts usually in april.

So plenty of time

Have some serious knocking and clacking coming from right side of motor. Here starts the tear down. Also pulling swingarm and a few other things. And a serious cleaning since its all wide open :-)

Lol. I can never leave my stuff alone. Always changing it. Plastics are out for paint. . . . . Again. I have the gauge cluster apart so i can change the color of the lights, swingarm is coming off and going to red chrome, wheels are going red chrome and white carbon fiber, new chain, gonna swap the fuel fittings on the tank, make a new exhaust, and when i tear into the motor, if its as bad as i think, it will go to my machine shop guy and get done up and probly boosted . New clutch since ill have it open and a few other things i cant think of. Maybe a sprocket. And if i cant finish it in time for the first ride next year, i jave an 11 r6 and 03 zx9 on the other side of the garage. Lol however all i care about is my toner !!!
What are you getting into?

A few gaskets maybe, 520 chain conversion, rear swinger drive bearings refresh, rear linkage bearings refresh, bit of a rewire to move some stuff up under the tank, pod filters to make room, drilled top yoke (triple) and fit some dirt bike risers, easton wide dirt bike fatbar, stripped off the front, side and lower plastics, single headlight install, 1050 wheels front and rear, 03 digital 955i cluster, magnetic speed sensor instead of the mechanical, hacked off the ignition loop on the top yoke (triple), relocating ignition barrel, rfid system, custom exhaust, 5/8" front master, 1/2" rear master, direct shift shifter, painting the frame, swinger and plastics...

Only a few things... Done adding **** to the list now tho Till next winter at least.

Full thread on the project is over here http://www.customfighters.com/forums...0&goto=newpost

Several of these mods would have been unthinkable if DEcosse hadn't done the legwork on them to begin with.
