ah, ok. That makes sense. FCR 39's vs Keihin CVK 36.
I just looked up the FCR 39's for 94-99 Speed Triple. 016-716 $1527.50 US.
They've gone up since I've looked at them last.

dealer price from Sudco is $1082 with plastic velocity stacks. Pod filter adapters are another $40/each.

I'm hoping to get these re-racked and possibly sell the 4th carb on ebay for parts for $100-150. If so, I'll be a happy man

How do you get the dealer price?

I have a friend who works for a shop with a sudco dealer account. Still, after the pod adapters and tax it would have been approaching $1300.

Still saves you 225.
Funny, kind of reminded me of this:

Got the upper case back from the machine shop this morning. After a few swings and misses with various shops, I called around to every car and motorcycle speed shop I could within a 100 mile radius and finally was referred to a local machine shop (7 min from my house) that did a great job. Two old salty brothers who don't advertise on the web but do a lot of work for local racers.





Head should be done and on its way back to me by the end of the week.

Did the machine shop open the case up for the sleeves, turn the sleeves down for the case, or a little bit of both?

opened up the case for the sleeves. Plenty of material on the upper case for machining whereas the sleeves are rather thin. Each bore had to be opened 2mm

Got an update on the head. Port work is done and the shop only has the valve job to complete before sending it back to me.

Before:


Progress:




Also snagged a new rear shock for peanuts on eBay. I've been running an '09 ZX6r rear shock which was a great cheap upgrade, but is a tad soft for my liking. Grabbed this Ohlins 46PRXLS off of a 05-06 zx6r so should bolt up with the same modifications as the current shock.



Update on other engine parts:
Cometic is currently making the head gasket and should be shipped out early next week.
Bearings and rod bolts should also arrive early next week.

Excited to get this engine back together already.
