Should have set of right oil lines in stock.  Good used and I just got things sorted from my trip to see Dad in Wyoming.  Still interested in the top end estimate?

Ok excellent.  That's great you got to go and spend some time with your dad.  I am still very interested in the estimate .  Not sure if you still have my email with a ton of questions in it, if you don't I can re-send it.  I think in the email I mentioned I wanted to get between 50-55hp, well I'm thinking now that 55 would be minimum.
Also still would like info on that Gt750 rear engine mount bushing when you get a chance.

I'll work it up this weekend and take some pics and post.

Not much progress at the moment, still trying to decide on buying a lathe.  A likely choice is a new Chinese lathe - Grizzly 12"x36" ($2600) which has good reviews.
 
I did manange to buy some front brake calipers from a member (50Gary) on here for a bargain price.  Still looking for a front wheel from a ninja ex650 or zx636 (2005 or newer).

Got my new pistons today so cylinders can go out for boring now.  Then I'm sending them to Zooke for porting.  Also scored a 2009 Ninja 650 front wheel for $44 on ebay!

I would rather port them first before boring.  PM me your address so I can get the oil lines to you.

No progress to report yet but I did finally get hold of a lathe so that I can start making parts.  Should see some progress in the next couple of weeks.
