Looky what I found
« on: July 21, 2011, 09:29:02 AM »
This has been in the works for a week or so, but it has finially made its way home.  Haven't had too much interest in the buggy, so its time for some upgrades.  I must admit this was the best way to buy an engine, 90% complete still in wrecked bike. 
Picked up an 06 yamaha r6, fully tuned version.  This thing has a wrap sheet and 2 police reports from it being stolen twice.  1st time it had vin## changed to some Kawa ## recoverd after 3 yrs. 
This will get me into a fuel inj engine and puts out about 130hp, about 45 more than the zx600.  Next week should be fun!!

Carl

Just make sure the new tow strap is the right color of green.  Don't want it to clash with my color's.  Mite carry a red one to so's not to clash with Trans Man.   LMAO LMAO

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

Well a slow start, but I finally got the bike stripped and the zx out of the buggy.  Trying to figure out how I'm going to make the mounts work/and look good too.  Was able to move engine forward about 4" for maore chain and move seat back a couple inches for some more leg room.  I can use leg room.
More later had to get more tube.

Right on! Can't wait to get to that point.
If you remain calm while everything around you is complete chaos... then you probably haven't fully understood the situation!

Been busy picking up some parts and running about 20 new oulets in my basement.  No more drop cords. 

But trying to workout new fuel tank.  Current round tube tank wont work with fuel inj.  Wanting to mount the bike fuel pump unit in bottom of a tank, need about 5" circle.  Was looking for one with a sump are to mount pump.  But the sump area is too small for pump.  Are you guys just mounting in bottom of a flat bottom tank? 

Pics tonight, new gauges should be there today.

my 1gallon tank would work perfect..  you can use your current tube tank and run the hose to the inlet of my pump mounted 1gallon tank..

Ain't that the truth! I've just spent 2- 8 hour days fabbing up a shifter for my mid engine 091 thing.Nothing made would work due to chassis interference.  thumb down  eyes

Hell I spent two hrs trying to get motor back out after tacking all up.  Took stator cover off, still needed 1/2".  Had to lift up rotate 90*, lift out.  Was so pissed forgot pics.  drowning   bs1  drowning

Got gauge cluster, as one on bike went missing when 1/2 of handlebars were ripped off.  Man this thing is tiny, should look good in new dash I'm drawing up.  Hope i get that far.  rofl  Going to house all the electrical goodies up front in a little hood box behind dash.
