Just some shots of the project, front end is pretty much the only thing done. New PJ1 fork fluid, Superbrace fork brace, used EBC Pro-Lites, new EBC HH pads, used braided lines, custom rusty caliper bolts, faded Nissin calipers. Engine assembly begins tomorrow.

No nothing top secret. I've been busy. Changed jobs a couple of months ago so I was not aroung for a while. It's too cold to work on the bike for the next couple of months:thumbdown. That means I am looking at ebay too much. With any luck my 88 11 will together sometime this summer.

You know, you can Rust Oleum those calipers with a foam brush without ever taking them apart or blasting them I've done it to two sets and have had excellent results. I've also done it to wheels too, but I blasted them and sprayed them rather than brushed them. Any way you look at it, they looked pretty damn good. Overall, it was good enough for somebody to risk thier life taking it from me. Ii did make a few small detail changes after these photos were taken. I moved the location of the shock res, changed brake lines, replaced some body parts etc., but for the purpose of showing what a can of Rust Oleum and a little patience will net, these are an accurate representation.

Oh, if you want the "Nissin" to stand out like I did, all you need is a steady hand and several Q-Tips (wood handle with a tight tip) dipped in Acetone. You paint right over the letters like they weren't even there and then when the paint tacks up a little (about 15-20 minutes) you rub off the paint on the letters with the Q-Tip. Works perfectly.

After you paint these things you want to leave them sit for at least 24 hours before handling them. I took mine apart when I painted them and used the same "O" rings when assembling them. They never leaked. I would advise doing it this way, but if you plan to keep them together, paint only one side at a time. The paint takes a long time to dry, but when it does dry it's a pretty hard and durable finish. I had maybe 5k on mine before the bike was stolen and they looked as good as the day I put them on.

i rode with a guy who had a 907 on a 93 cooler bike, it seemed to move out pretty decent. i was going to ask him to swap rides some day but he dropped off the face of the earth onthe only forum i ever saw him on.

so how much for that braced swinger for the 2nd gen frame. im planning on around 200 to 225 rwhp on my 92 when im done with it next winter and i think i had better go with the newer braced swinger. i was originally thinking of doing the 750 one, but then i thought more about what kinda power is about to get laid down and ehhhh, maybe i should just leave the twisty stuff to my 031k.

Stock rods, i had some Carillo rods that i could have put in but the stockers were fine for what im doing. Got a 92 transmission that was in good shape from hypersport and a new 2nd and 6th gear. Didnt have transmission undercut, probably should have. Now im thinking i should have put the Carillos in....ahh shit....STOP THAT! :biggrin
