      Update time.

      So, got my new carb boots in a while ago but just didn't have the time to install them up until now. So I removed the old boots and compared them to the new ones. Turns out (or so I at least believe) the boots that were on the bike were wrong. When comparing the old boots to the new boots, the news boots were a lot longer in length making it easier for the carbs to be installed. I also attempted to seal off 2 vacuum lines on the carbs with a bolt and some silicon. Then started her and she seemed to run great! However the bike is still ****ing dying on its own. So I'm going to install the air box and attempt to tune the carbs to see if she'll stay on/run a bit better. Should have an update a little later today!

        So I installed the air box, turned her on, and nothing has really changed. Still wont idle on it's own and I noticed that the bike seemed to sound funny so i decided to touch the pipes to make sure each cylinder was firing and go figure that the pipe for cylinder #2 wasn't that hot yet all the other pipes were. So at this point I'm gonna have to do some reading and figure out what the **** is going on. #oldbikeproblems  :'( :'( :'( :'(


        Turns out the plug for cylinder #2 needs to be replaced as its not getting a spark. Not sure how that happens when the plug is basically new but oh well.

          OK it's been a while I think it's time for an update lol.

          Since last writing in this thread I believe I was having trouble with getting the bike to run properly due to some carb issues. Since then quite a bit has been figured out/done.

          The first thing I ended up doing since the last post was replace the bike with some cheaper plugs due to the iridum plugs I had always fowling due to tuning the carbs to run properly and my lack of experience lol. After doing so I actually manged to get the bike to run properly and found that I was letting the bike run WAY to rich causing the fowling of the plugs. Once the tuning was figured out the bike ran like a dream. So, before I ran into anymore issues I scheduled it to get a safety at Capitol Motorsports on St. Anne's. During the safety it failed due to the throttle tube not operating properly (felt as if there was a bunch of dirt/sand in it causing it not to turn smoothly). Luckily I had ordered a new throttle tube due to that exact reason and the guys down at Capitol were cool enough to let me work on the bike in the back quickly, get the part replaced, and then I was golden and passed the safety. Sadly I didn't stay golden for to long as a day or two later when taking the bike for a little ride up and down my back lane one of the carb floats decided to stick and when that happens fuel will pour out of that carb constantly, both being a waste of money/safety concern. Not wanting to deal with the problem right away I decided that would be the point where I would start to completely disassemble the bike to get it ready for its final form.



          And that's basically where the progress with the bike has since been left. I got the bike down to its bare frame almost being before the winter came and I've since neglected to work on it cause I don't want to freeze in my garage. At this point I want to insure it for the shortest amount of time possible so I can actually have plates for it and make it easier to insure in the summer once it's done. The next thing on the job list once the weather starts to warm up is to pull the engine, rebuild it (hopefully, otherwise just replace some gaskets), Get the frame stripped of paint, modify the frame a little by adding the frame loop (which I ended up already getting) and shaving some stuff off to make it look a bit cleaner/make it easier for me to tuck wiring, get a seat cowl/pan fabricated (which I'm still looking for someone to do. As of right now Speed factor might be doing it), Powder coat the frame, put it all back together, and she'll hopefully be done. There are a couple of other small things that need to be ordered but other then that she should be done this summer as long as I have the spare money to do so.

          In the case I do decide to work on the bike (which I probably will) expect more updates soon! Until then I'll leave you with this picture of the almost bare naked lady.

                  ME LAZY! Just waiting for the warmer weather then the engine is coming out. Then it will be time to chop the frame to add the rear loop and hidden electronics box.

                    I've heard a lot about this rear loop.... wonder if it'll ever happen.

                      Update

                      :

                      Alright its been a while sue me. Since I last posted a couple of things have happened.

                      I finally got the bike a plate which was waaaaaaaaaay harder then it needed to be. To keep it brief, I attempted to get the bike insured roughly 4 times, constantly got turned away because the bike hadn't been insured for years and the clerks didn't seem to know what to do so they just kept turning me away. Just when i was about to I remembered my friend Chris worked for HUB at one point. So I explained the situation to him and he came down to a local hub with me to basically walk the clerk through what to do. Low and behold once that happened I got my plates. I don't know why it was a pain but it just was. Regardless I got a plate.

                      Today I decided to do the final tear down and completely strip the bike down to the frame. So as of right now the bike looks like this


                      The current things on the to do list are:

                      - Cut rear frame
                      - Fabricate rear cowl from sheet metal (My friend Matt who is in engineering with me at the U of M is going to be helping me fab this  :banana: )
                      - Weld on rear loop
                      - Buy Motogadget M blaze pin's for rear turn signals
                      - Buy a LED strip to act as my stop light that will be integrated into the rear cowl (Look at picture below for reference)
                      - Buy any small bits like bearings or bushing in the case they are needed once I fully inspect everything
                      - Get seat made (I'm either going with a leather or alcantara)
                      - Powder coat the frame and swing arm
                      - Install all the parts
                      - Rideeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
                      - Whatever I missed lol



                      Motivation


                      I'm determined to finish this bish.

                        Tomorrow I'll be bringing my frame over to my friend Matt's house for us to start modifying the frame (fab cowl and weld loop) and shaving off any unnecessary bit's. Unlikely that everything is going to be done in one day however. In the mean time I figured I'd work on the wheels just to get some things out of the way.

                        The first thing I wanted to do was make sure that the wheel bearings were still in good condition, which thankfully they were. So I decided Id clean the wheels up as they were full of old dirt/grease and prep them for some polishing (I didn't end up polishing them cause I didn't realize how big of a pain it was actually going to be. Ill polish the wheels to a mirror finish when the bike is in it's final assembly.)

                        Note: I'm trying to make the journal more picture heavy but some times forget to take my phone out before I get to work, soooooo you'll only be seeing pictures of the rear wheel as I forgot to take pictures of the front wheel but it was the same process. Rinse, degrease, clean with mineral spirits/ use brake clean and clean small sports by hand with a cloth.

                        BEFORE







                        Note the disgusting grease ^^^^^^... Don't worry i repacked it with new grease   :mo:

                        AFTER[/b][/u]







                        Till next time

                            Oh hello


                            So since last posting quite a lot of work has been done. My friend Matt and myself went about installing the rear frame loop and have fabricated the cowl :banana: . The process of installing the loop and fabricating the cowl was a first for both of us and definitely wasn't an easy one, but the final result  was exactly what I was looking for. Hand made, hand crafted components made from raw material. I'm not going to be posting any pictures regarding the frame work now as we still aren't done yet but once we are I'll make sure to post about it.

                            (You after reading that last line)

                            What I'm here to post about is what else I've done. Which isn't much because I've just come back from a trip to Orlando ( :'( GIVE ME BACK THAT WARM WEATHER  :'( ). But I've basically gone about completely rebuilding/refreshing the front forks.

                            Front Forks


                            Forks before being lowered


                            Forks after being lowered

                            Might be hard to see the difference in the pictures but I lowered the forks 3 inch's. Some might say that's a lot but this bike is going to be more form oriented and be more of a cruiser then anything. If I wanted a performance oriented bike I would just get an S1000RR or something. Lowering the forks in general was pretty easy though.

                            The process was essentially as follows:

                            1. Drain fork oil
                            2. Remove bolt at the bottom of each fork
                            3. Remove dust seal at top of fork housing
                            4. Remove locking clip with washer
                            5. Using force, slide bottom housing of forks like a hammer
                            6. TADAAAAA Forks are apart
                            7. Undo top part of forks to release spring
                            8. Cut spring to remove length that you want (In my case 3 inch's)
                            9. Add a spacer of removed length to prevent bottoming out
                            10. Replace anything that could wear aka new seals
                            11. reassemble, add new oil (Recommended oil for this bike was 10W-40 but i decided to go with a straight 30 weight oil as it's stiffer and will help with preventing any bottoming out.)

                            The following pictures show the process roughly.


                            Dirty old oil


                            One of the forks had a rusted/worn bolt on it that was stripping and I really didn't want to reinstall it so I ordered a new one. (New on left, Old on right)


                            Dust seal, locking clip, and washer



                            Hammer slide action to reveal the good stuff aka the fork seal


                            Forks completely apart



                            Spacers were made from a 3/4'' piping that were ground and wire brushed on a bench grinder


                            Cut springs. I made sure to grind down and make the cut end of the spring as smooth as possible on the bench grinder


                            Forks with spacers

                            Then put it all back together.

                            Last thing needed to be done to the forks in polishing, but that will be done on final assembly of the bike

                            Till next time m8's :slezak:

                              Just looking at that oil makes me gag... lol.  If you've ever caught a whiff of 30+ yr old fork oil... you know what I'm saying.

                                    I thankfully have never had to smell old tranny fluid so I couldn't confirm nor deny if either is worse... and I don't think I'd ever want to know ahaha
