It's just a matter of technique as it's pssible to wheelie just about anything.
You may need to be rolling at 120~130mph (Kawasaki GPZ750 turbo, change down twice and pin it  ;) ) but front will come up

Thinking about it, if I leave the original Ninja rear sprocket on there it could bring the front wheel up, maybe.  Perhaps I could also hire out to pull stumps in first gear and use it as an extremely overweight trials bike, too.

LOL  ;D
 Should be OK with 17/34, you just have to be around 15~20mph, change from 3rd into second, 'pump' forks and 'up she goes'  :o (I don't do wheelie or stoppies except by accident  ;) )

Yeah the plan is for 17/34.  The stocker on the rear at the moment is 42, I believe.  I'm certainly not going to leave that on there.  As for wheelies and stoppies,..  I guess older n wiser are the key words for me.  If I can find that XR engine my brain might go into a second childhood... however the brittle and stiff 60 year old bod remains.

I see titanium parts, but i hope they still move some, fusion is the death of any lower back and the ability to shit a decent turd.

Nope, no movement. L4, L5, S1 all joined up.
Still have to take painkillers multiple times a day, the meds have all sorts of side effects, only one is what you mentioned, another side effect my wife kinda likes but I need to be a lot fitter for 3~4 hr sessions  ;)
I've tried reducing doses but it isn't working, hurts too much and I can't sleep (didn't sleep at all last night but I've only been awake about 30hrs  ;D )

The replacement bearing arrived today.  It was a good choice to choose one 4mm narrower; that allows the seal to seat well and everything fits perfectly into the frame. 

So... for now it's a roller.  There are going to be a few things to be changed and added when the welder and I get together but I expected that.  Rearsets up a couple of inches, front tank mounts slightly relocated, rear tank mount fabricated, pan for electrics under the seat, bracing at the top of the upper shock mount, frame bracing per the crazypj recommendations, etc.   Not sure if the attempt to make a hugger rear fender will clear the chain, either.  Will continue to mess w/ that idea.

AND no, no plans for Firestone tires,  the forks will not be that low; the bars will be below the top triple, and there will be enough clearance at the rear for suspension travel.  (Probably other things that are going to kill me will come up over time.)

Anyway, here's what there is now:

Really lookin great my man. I think what you said was right on the money. If you get the tank up where it needs to be and the clip ons under the clamp to get the front end up a bit, that thing will be sweet! I hope you can get that fender notched out for the chain, cut that little booger looks great!

Keep up the good work!

Thanx.  I don't know, at the moment it looks kinna ugly to me.  I was going tochange over the top triple and bars situation this morning but ended up helping to clean the basement... lots of rain over night, the city must have had a problem somewhere and we had an inch or two of water w/ floating turds!   >:(  what a mess!  The joys of home ownership!

'81 CX500 Custom (almost done)
'83 CX650E

Things look a bit better with the top side cleaned up.

Thank you sir! 

Things are coming along here.  Smoothing out some stuff on the tank and doing more "lookin' n thinkin'."  That's probably why thing thing is moving along so slowly; "lookin' n thinkin'." 

I was going over the thread that Tune-A has over on the Tank and Seat area.  I need to lay up a basic seat pan that I'll get upholstered.  After going over that a few times I think I can accomplish it.  I want it to fit into the shape of the bottom of the seat and the only way I can see to do it is to cover things up well, use the bottom of the seat as a form, and lay up 'glass.  I may be gettin' old but guess I'm not too old to learn... at least HOPE I'm not too old to learn!
