Just got this bike for free with the wireing already removed 馃檪 I think I might black out the frame and go with the street fighter look I'm not 100% sure but I'm excited to get one with the tank and seat plastics intact

And this is what I mean when I tell people to open the transmission and clean out all of the disgusting paraffin based grease before switching to ATF or motor oil with your choice of additives in the mix.


Because I'm going to be swapping this engine with another engine that is already ported and polished I'm going to go ahead and pull this engine and transmission out at this time...

I'm going to go ahead and grab my donor engine off of this thing I know it doesn't look the best on the outside but don't worry it's what's on the inside that counts...

Seeing that all my parts came in in a timely manner and everything is going to work and fit I have started modding the first thing I've done is the starter delete mod basically all you do is take the starter off and cut on both sides of the starter motor to remove the inner shaft then remove the brushes you can remove the magnets if you want to it's easy to break them out with a hammer and screwdriver and then use pliers to take the screws out or just leave them in.

I got my intake and made some gaskets for it the Chinese gaskets that come with these parts tend to melt when mixed with gasoline that's my biggest issue with them the second issue is the gaskets are always smaller than the openings blocking some of the flow so when I make my gas gets I make sure that it does not block the opening in any way. It sure is nice when you can see the project coming together I finally got to put my velocity stack and air filter on.
