I got as much done on the bike in the last few days that I could.
Visual inspection, ie.. staring
Installed the new SS brake lines and did a full flush.
Installed the new chain and sprockets.
Flushed the clutch hydraulics, I have a new SS line for it, still need to install it.
Rebuilt the rear sets and replaced the clutch lever, it shifts like it should now.

I got to put about 60 miles on it today including a rip through the canyon freeway.
It howls.  :)

More to do.

I didn't dig the early 90's in the 90's but I do now that you got that bike.

I had a different color scheme in mind for the build so it took me a minute to "get" the purple but I love it.

I keep hearing Beastie Boys playing in the background everytime I see this bike ;)

When you are Dead, you don't know that you are Dead. It is difficult only for Others.

It is the same when you are Stupid.

Man you have to keep this color scheme. I mean it's not like it's the GSXR in Cool As Ice you know.

I had to look up Cochese Redbird....

As for the colors, I'm going to maintain the factory plastics and graphics, I love them yet can't stand Vanilla Ice.. ;)

However.....Airtech is having a sweet Labor day sale today so I got a bit excited and ended up ordering a full race fairing, tail and bellypan.

My excuse is that one of the yzf's will need all the body work and I couldn't miss the price break Walt at Airtech gave me today. 

:) :) :)

Don't read too much into it, it was just the first "character" listed in the Sabotage video :P
