My bike is a 2007 GSXR 750. Bought this one at the beginning of the year and instantly fell in love with it. The handling is great, even though it is stretched, i was surprised at that. The power comp... more

Whack the ignition loop off. Will be moving... more
Waited to get the forks on 'till after work today. There is a 50 ton press in a shop next door where I work. Did not want to dremel the lower race off the stem yesterday when I could press the stem an... more
Thought I'd post up this week's progress this morning. I'll be update later this weekend with what ever else I got.
I tried all the rear calipers in my horde and nothing was going to jive. Consult... more
Got my two wheel spacers done. This one picture represents hours of standing in front of the lathe. Going to just have to trust me on that, lol.
Good news is my axle hole is perfect after using som... more
Work, snow, and family obligations took up most of my weekend. But I was able to get a couple important steps done.
In order to make the spacers mentioned above I needed to get the swingarm torque... more
Today I didn't make any progress on the bike. Physically that is. I did how ever pick up a very key tool for completing this project.

She is a runner, and se... more
So, all in all things are working out well. I'll work on my bearing and rear shock issues next. For now here is how she's looking.
According to the rear valve stem I'm very nearly on my center too... more
Although I don't have a frame jig, I can make a decent try at keeping the new rear some what centered.
The center of my front tire is in the middle of the table lift's wheel clamp. Mark that and m... more

Not so fast... more
It's time y'all!!!
Back story, and reason for the title. The R6 I built a while back had been finished and I had my fun on it. The decision was made to move on to another build. I always had my ey... more
In this post I will talk about the failure of the fuel reserve sensor and how to save money and a couple of weeks of valuable summer time, if this happens with your bike.
So, it all started with th... more

Drawing discs in three beams from the 90s, of course, is outdated and casts a shadow that is not necessary for the entire motorcycle as a whole. Initially, I really wanted to replace the whee... more
At first glance at the Ducati Monster 600cc 2000 as a donor for the construction of the next custom, involuntarily the question arises - what can be done with it? It is stylistically self-sufficient... more
We don't often see our motorcycles in such a way (deliberately disassembled to a cog).
Moreover, when the motorcycle-donor, according to custom measures, is still young and fresh (2000 year of r... more
