Well things are nearly there with the GSXR now.
I recently had the wheels, disc centres, fairing bracket, and battery box powder coated. I fitted the wheels last night and it was the first time I was able to offer the new calipers to the modified forks. I had the forks serviced recently so I had new seals, progressive fork springs, and a new stanchion fitted. I opted for 20W oil as well as based on comments from other Slabide owners I was told that the Nissin calipers will bottom the forks if they are too soft. I hope that the reworked front forks and brand new rear shock should vastly improve how the bike handles.
I also bought a 44 tooth rear sprocket as I'm more interested in out right acceleration compared to having a high top speed.
In order to get the new calipers to fit I had a bracket made and then my old man helped me with a little bit of filing to get the bracket and caliper to fit together nicely.
Earlier on today I offered a couple of body panels up to the bike to get a feel of what it'll look like when finished.
I also had the battery box powder coated recently as well so when the bike goes to the shop to have the carbs ultrasonically cleaned and balanced I'll ask them to fit this as well.
I have another couple of bits and pieces being powder coated so these should be back by the weekend.
The jobs left to do before I can start hooning around again are:
Bleed the braking system
Bleed the clutch
Have the carbs sorted
Change the clutch plates and springs
Change the oil and filter
Replace the swing arm bushes and/ or rear cushion lever bushes.
Have the downpipes bead blasted and paint the entire exhaust in BBQ black paint
All in I reckon this will take me about another 4 weeks, after that I can put the fairing on and go thrashing about!
