@declan Literally just wanted the idle gear and the kickstart mate. The rest I already have.
But for this tasty little conversion I am going to do, it would be nice to have a pair of crankcases to hand
I ain't saying no more than that, you will see the results when I finish.
Yeah I've made a mistake haha, I have 59t rear and 16t front, it's very low geared so ordered a 17t front sprocket for a test since it was only £4 and I shouldn't have to cut the chain, will see how it goes but the bike pulls very strong up to 140kmh right now and wheelies on throttle sitting forward in 1st so hopefully it should have the grunt to pull enough in 6th with new sprocket.
I manage to get it clean! First I sank it into a diesel for a 24h... did not help much... Then few hours in detergent... Not much help... Then I gave it a ultrasonic bath, the result was better, but there were still some green stuff left... Then I bought some carburetor cleaner and spray that and the green stuff melt away... Last cleaning with brake cleaner... Now the carb is back in one peace... after a week, I we'll see if it works, or is there something else broken...
Oh hell yeah now thats a nice looking bike IMO.
I much prefer it with the off road wheels. I see you have an acerbis tank for it then and you're lucky enough to have the later one (4TP is it?) so you can still get the tank and mounts.
Thats great to know that theres nothing major to worry about and yeah, I'll be religiously servicing/ greasing those suspension linkage and swing arm bearings! Thanks for the heads up. I think any bike that uses a similar set up should be sold with a grease gun as part of the tool kit!
Yeah that is the flip side how much is too much coz I will never get it back
So far I paid £600 for the bike I've done about £1400 getting it to where it is now + I have more to spend I would think by the time I've finished it will stand me in at about £2500 and it will prob be worth about £1600 on a good day , but I didn't do it to make money just to have something different and learn a bit on the way . The yzf750 was prob the best 750 of its time it still rocks by today's standards of 600s it more bike than I can handle
