Going with a 17" front will give you considerably more choice in rubber and if you head to the track most if not all superbike sticky DOT rubber will come in a 17".

Yup and alarm. Im going to wire the alarm into the harness since it will already be split. This way the wires cant be found and I can relocate the backup battery etc anywhere I want around the bike. It wont be a simple 'remove the seat and unscrew a battery terminal.

As for lowjack I'll need their installer to put it in.

Boss is not ok with it, but he can deal w his own issues. I put his own personal car on the backburner and he's already upset about that. I figure if I get my own work done for the business, on my time off I should be able to work on my own projects.

I also may have a clutch problem. The spring arm on the side of the case cover has very little resistance when pushing or letting go. So little that the clutch lever wont return after being pulled

It was starting while pushing the start/stop button in half way, not full. After letting it sit and working on the levers/positioning etc it wouldnt so much as crank. Im speculating the start/stop switch it faulty
Buy CBR1000RR throtle cables, they will clean it up realy nice.

The clutch, Buy a new clutch cable and a new lever, that lever is broken and the clutch line was suposed to have a bend in it where it comes out of the lever. Look at it, it looks like it has been beaten. I think there is low miles on a new clutch on that bike. I also have some new metals and springs for that bike. Last time i thought the clutch was going out I only replaced the fibers but later on bought metals and springs.

Sorry about the harnes but I was new to the game and just made it work.
The bike sat for a while due to the Voltage rectifier going out and I had bought a new bike. I think it was common for those bikes. I think a fix would be making sure the V R is well grounded.

As for the wheel... The stock wheel is a 16in and the other is a 929 front wheel that had a dent in the lip. I realy dont think the stock is inter change able with the 929 front end. The top clamp is of a 954? or 929.

Matt if you need any help or have ???? just give me a call.

I looked through some of the repair manuals and it mentioned if the clutch lever doesnt return the spring on the top of the clutch lever could be weak(on the engine block.) The cable still moves smoothly so it should be alright for now. Before I start mod replacement Im still assessing what Im working with.

Now that I have a full repair manual I'll be able to look into it more. Thanks for everything!


Street mainly but also track.

The cable moves smoothly? Just looking at the cable I think it needs to be replaced anyway.
LMK if you want to buy the metals and the springs. You could sell those extra parts and buy these.

The tracked-out busa was the upgrade. This will get me by until we destroy that theft ring

Day 2:

Took the bars apart to make the lock work. Ended up shimming the ignition to get the lock peg to align w the frame. Swapped the clips around, ended up back to where they were. We'll see how they feel etc when the bike comes together.

Found the no crank problem. There is an open in the wire from the start/stop safety to the crank button. I jumped the splice(not sure if its in the wiring or the housing itself. We fed gas through a syphon and heard it purr for the first time. I already know I'll need a set of cheap plugs to burn out the moisture in the cylinders(imagine the musty smell the shop enjoyed lol.)

Was looking through ETKs earlier and repaired the vacuum hoses for the tank that were plugged; used elbows instead of purchasing the special air diverter.

Removed the throttle cables for now. They're on the list.

Current parts list needed:

OEM:
Fairing stay(front)
Mirror stay
throttle cables (forward and return)
clutch cable
Gas tank? Purely for aestetics(I wonder if the used Honda store has one... hmmmm...)

A/M:
Whole bunch of bolts
Aluminium for bracket building

My start/stop switch jump:
Cali-Built  900rr Budget Project
We have Steering Lock!!!!
Cali-Built  900rr Budget Project
Vacuum hose web:
Cali-Built  900rr Budget Project
A pic is worth a thousand words... but no video but it ran!!!
Cali-Built  900rr Budget Project

Saturday I have the day off(although I've already been asked by several to come in. I told them I would, but for myself Im going to map the whole wiring for the bike for the lights and horn. As of now the horn is inop. Have not checked function of any of the lights. Im not sure if it needs to run for light check.

The sockets I do have are aged significantly. So they have already been cut away. Im going to Wallyworld to get a trailerhitch harness so I can wire all the rear lights into two sockets for conversion. I do have the original sockets that are soaking in an electrical de-oxidation formula. Hopefully they will be reuseable. The front turn sigs will be A/M. I do have some that fit well on the fairings but again the sockets have seen better days. May try to find a socket to work.

The rear subframe on the bike is a little tweaked. True, I do have two others to work with so may see what can be done on Saturday about resetting or tweaking the one currently on the bike.
As for the clutch, the release arm on the cover still seems awefully loose. I'll check function when the bike runs more regularly. Till then, I'll assume it needs to come off on the day I'll be doing a complete flush and cleaning the forks too.

As eager as I am to jump on it and go, thankfully I dont have the parts I need to continue it. This is allowing me the opportunity to find patience in my own projects. For anyone else I can wait forever; my stuff usually requires instant gratification

So as of right now, I've only spent time and the cost of the bike. But I see a used Honda store visit and Motorcycles Unlimited in my near future.

Clutch release isnt functioning. I put it up on a pitbull in first and pulled the release lever on the cover and I couldnt turn the wheel. I'll be taking it apart this weekend and draining all the fluids/making brackets Saturday along w labeling the lights.

For lunch Friday we are visiting Honda; didn't have time today to go. Hopefully they have a fairing stay (fingers crossed) otherwise I can get one online.
