Good Weekend.




Yeah. It was a good weekend.

My buddies Buell XB12S after it's winter build. Tail riser, taller seat, renthal bars, satin black paint, fresh powdercoat on lots of stuff, etc. etc.

FZR600 Progress



Two quick mid week mods. I got some yellow lamin-x for the headlights. I have both done yellow right now, but may go back to a single light covered like in the picture. I can't tell which looks best. Both are awesome in my opinion and give it that vintage enduro racer image. 

Also took the rubber off of the stock pegs, sandblasted, and powder coated them clear. Looks awesome. I drilled speed holes in the heel plates and will do those clear this weekend as well. 

I decided the rear spring rate off the R6 shock was too soft for me (there's about a 200# difference), so I'm going to powdercoat the factory FZR spring orange and put it on. I still have to do the rear brake line, but after all that, the chassis is finished! Now it's just putting the gearbox in along with an EBC clutch and it can all start going back together.

FZR600 Adjustable Shock

Put the R6 rear shock in today. Took a little modification but not too bad. I had to enlarge the top bushing hole, make some spacers, and trim the lower clevis. The R6 shock is slightly shorter, so I had to make new dog bones to keep the ride height the same. It feels really soft, so I'm not sure if that spring rate is going to work for me. It's been so long since I've ridden this bike it's hard to tell.

FZR600 Progress


Foot controls when they come off the bike. Brake side looked identical.

Fresh silver powdercoat makes a world of difference.

 Also some fresh black on the bar ends.
