A little lunchtime progress today, a paycheck can do wonders for morale even if ya haven't ordered anything yet :)

My HF sawsall cut through the frame like butter. Also removed the guages, mufflers, and lower bag mounts at the rear footpegs.

About to order the cam chain, guides, seals and more. I found a price of $55 for the timing chain but open to recommendations on where to order. I saw a list somewhere but can't find it now.

I second this. Great collection of information it has saved my bacon a few times. That and the service manual.

Great, thanks guys, DSS is where I found the parts so I was on track.

Ordered the chain, guides, and a few other bits. I'll order gaskets, seals, and other items later when engine is closer to re-assembly.

I want to lower the front without having the fork tubes sticking through the triple tree (it already is) so I'm thinking of doing an inverted front fork swap and see some people using the GSXR750 fronts, any suggestions on other inverted setup swaps? I have access to a lathe, mill, etc... at work so adapting it wouldn't be an issue.

Go to All Balls and enter the specs of the bike on the Fork swap thing on the top left. Then it will tell you what forks will swap in with what bearings. But just because the forks swap doesn't mean it will be better shorter forks screw with the geometry. I have a set of 1986 GSXR1100 forks on my bike and it does make the bike feel different for sure. Plus I am running a 17 inch front wheel so my advice may not be credible.

A little more lunchtime progress. Airbox removed, electronics removed now and frame cut a little more. Got an email saying my new cam chain and a couple other items are in transit.

Thinking of future seat hoop options while making everything easier to get access.

(the frame is straight, it just looks odd due to the camera angle)

It's been raining and/or cold for months but I've been stockpiling parts in the meantime.

This '03 GSXR750 front just arrived today😁

Bought an extra engine locally for only $50 off CL. Supposedly this one only has 16k miles while mine has 62k miles. We'll see what shape both engines are inside but for $50 I couldn't pass it up... insurance.
