Well got the bike back at my house, but it isn't starting. We believe it's either the tip over sensor or the o2 sensor(which hasn't been reconnected yet.

Is the fuel pump priming when you turn the key?

If it was the tip over sensor it would reset once you flipped the run/stop switch from run to stop then back to run. As such I don't think that's your problem. did you test for spark?

It could be that it needs to receive a signal from the o2 sensor and wouldn't start without it but I don't think that's the case. Might just be me, though.

Also, it doesn't sound like your fuel pump is working/priming. Should be a low 'wirr' sound when you flip the switch from stop to run. Shouldn't last more than a few seconds.

Project ninja 300 rebuild underway!

And we MAY have installed the tip over sensor wrong. My friend said he thinks he remembers the wires going downward when they're suppose to be going upward. Gonna have to wait until tomorrow to check.

Tip over sensor was upside down. She runs good now and all put together, relatively speaking. Side fairings aren't lining up properly, lowest fairings are almost touching the front wheel. I believe the headlight assembly might be positioned too low, but we'll see what happens when I have some daylight to work on her some more. ALMOST DONE.

there wasn't anything on the sensor to indicate which way was up?

They probably just missed seeing it the first time. I know on the f4i its labeled but its the same color as the darn thing it's on. Like come on white outline wouldn't hurt :/

There are almost 2 dozen electrical plugs, switches, sensors, etc. that had to be disconnected before, and reconnected after the frame swap. The tip over sensor is covered in black rubber. Yes, there is an arrow on it, but at the time, that was unnoticed, and we weren't even aware of what that particular sensor did. All that was known, was that it slipped onto a tab under the top frame rail. Only after looking up the part on Ebay, was it realized what the thing was, so it was turned upright and the bike started and ran.

Great job.

And now you know your bike completely, so other than internal engine failure, you can fix just about anything!

Haha. Just my luck guys. This frame is bent too. But this time It'll be an easy fix. Hopefully. I've got ideas and stuff.

Not much. Maybe an inch, but enough that the tire is almost rubbing the fairings.

Obvious is obvious...

the Rake should be 26
(Rake is measured in degrees and is the angle between the fork tubes and a vertical line.)
and the wheelbase 55.12" (Axel c/l to axel c/l)

The seller of the frame should refund your purchase, if it is bent.
but a one inch bend at the neck should have been pretty obvious

Thats a real PITA, sorry to hear about this.

What do you plan to do?
I'm thinking that much change in geometry of the front end is a LOT. If you are planning to go forward and ride it, I would suggest taking it easy at first and see how it handles.
It could be kind of wonky.

I rode it down the street, it rides fine at low speeds, but I don't trust it enough to start riding it around. I'm gonna do what I can to bend it back, but it's gonna be tricky. Gonna take some serious brainstorming and a lot of luck. I've got a plan formulating. The worst that could happen is it bends wrong or won't bend at all. Either case, I'm gonna need another new frame, so there's really nothing to lose.
