It was so covered in oily dirt down there, I couldn't even tell until I cleaned it.  Some of the anodizing has worn down but the aftermarket shock links look like they are in great shape I just need to do a little homework on them.  I'm going to leave the stock shock in it and just clean, lube and adjust everything back there. 

Post cleaning list of stuff to do next:
- Pull rear wheel, clean, inspect, etc and paint
- Order SS brake line kit
- clean, inspect, rebuild, etc rear caliper from parts bike and install on the titled bike
- clean, inspect, rebuild ,etc front clutch and brake master cylinders and front brakes  Same for the rear sets.

Is the DG swinger stock, or is that an aftermarket rig?

Good question.  I don't see the DG mark on stock bikes but the swingarms are otherwise visually identical.   I'm still digging for history and other fun info on these bikes.  My chassis also has a spot on the frame for a steering stabilizer that the newer bike does not.

Todays mail brought more fuel line, needles and seats and a petcock rebuild kit.  I usually don't like even screwing around with vacuum petcocks but this mounts to the bottom of the tank.  I'll give the repair a shot.

Glad to have you onboard Drewski.  This build should stay on track, I guess time will tell.  I hope it does.

Today I got the 1000 motor cleaned up. It cleaned up well, no paint necessary.  I also pulled the wheels to prep them for paint.  I need to get a chain and sprocket set ordered soon. 

I really should get back to the 750 carbs and try to get it started.

Some good bits you have to work with there.  :D

Any decisions on what way you'd prefer to go with your engine, etc?  :)

I like questions.  I got my hands on an earlier FZR for a few hours one day years ago while I was stationed in San Diego but I've never ridden a Yamaha like one of these Yzf's.  So.
I'd like to know what the 750 motor feel like on the road so part of me just wants to get it running and swap it into my good chassis and ride it awhile.  The winner though will probably be putting the 1000 Ace in first and roll the dice.  Either way it would be nice to compare the two.

For the Ace motor:  The motor mount mods need a little work.  The mod plates for the conversion are a bit rough and could use a do-over if I ocd it.  I'll likely source a few more engine mount bits and mount it in the good chassis.  This while I deal with 750 parts bike and ordering stuff as I can.
