It is complete! Took a little over a month of waiting for parts, disassembly, cleaning, painting, and reassembly. I think it looks pretty good :)
Gas tank mounted! All that’s left is the front end and side panels, new brake fluid, and a little more cleaning/detailing.
Painted the gas tank black, but not really. Seeing how Plasti Dip works out on it and it’s a cheap method to painting the gas tank. If it doesn’t workout I may stick with a white tank and a black bike.
Had to remove the water pump to extract the rest of the drain bolt. It broke off when I put it back on after flushing out the coolant. Replacement bolt arrives tomorrow.
Tail section complete! Little bit everyday. It should all be ready by the weekend
This thing is gonna be all blacked out! The light is a lot brighter than my previous one and has a couple different features. First is that when the brake is applied the light flashes bright a few times before holding bright as a warning to drivers behind me that I’m braking. This gives better visibility and makes it that much safer. It also has sequential turn signals, meaning that the turn signal blinks from the center and on to the outside to indicate direction. Below is a video of how it works on a newer bike:
My assumption as correct! O-ring on one of the fuel injectors was damaged causing a leak and loss of power at times (fuel not getting to one of the cylinders). Replacing all the O-rings and gaskets now.
Disassembling to clean the fuel injectors and replace seals.
