Since the gauge cluster was beyond repair I made a new, lower, simplified single speedo panel.  CNC'd sheet aluminum with a laser etched clear acrylic top complete with a few idiot lights.  This is the first round for the panel, if I come across a good tach I'll be making an updated version.

New panel with handlebars, mirrors, and controls installed.  Oh, and off the lift for the first time.


First 5 mi shakedown ride.  Bought the bike with exactly 12,000 mi on the clock.  P/O rode the bike for a whopping 120 mi before totaling it.

Very nice!  That's a heck of a bike you are building, and those drop out forks are awesome.  I'm on board.

Up front i wanted to change the riding position from upright to more leaned over the tank while lowering the entire front end visually.  Stock handle bars and risers were thrown in the trash and replaced with Woodcraft clip-ons with 3 inch risers.  The intention was that I can raise or lower the bars according to the riding that I'll be doing.  Low sub-top triple for more aggressive riding and raised up above the triple tree for slightly more relaxed long distance riding.  Since getting them fitted in a low position that I like, I have not moved them and its super comfortable.

Sounds like you like the Woodcraft clip-ons.  I've been eyeballing those for a bit now but with only a 2 inch riser for my ZRX.  Did you find a sweet deal on them?

Yea I scoured ebay and craigslist for a good while, ended up finding them for $70 still in the package.  I like them a lot, great build quality and good looks to boot, I'd definitely recommend them.  Just make sure you get a good accurate measurement of your fork tubes, 1mm is a lot.  I believe your ZRX forks are the same as mine, 43mm, but I'd give it a double check.

Shots of the stage one jet kit (from DynoJet) installed.  Good pairing with the aftermarket pipe.



Buddy (and photographer) Dan stopped by with his carbs so we got er dun at the same time.

...Forgot to add that after reassembly I changed the oil 5 times and dropped the pan 3 times to make sure anything floating around inside the engine from the accident got cleared out.  First pan drop was horrifying, huge pieces of rocks and clumps of dirt hidden in there.  Second was much better, and third was clean.  Hooked up the 'ol oil pressure gauge and she checked out right on the money.

Here's the first "Official" Start Up of the bike.  Little green gadget bouncing around is the oil pressure gauge.

Getting closer to catching up with real time now...

Very shortly after getting the bike off the lift I took a 260mi shakedown ride into the next state to visit a buddy.  To my astonishment everything went swimmingly and nothing fell off (yet).  Stopped on a bridge in the great boondocks of North Jersey and grabbed a few shots.

17" fitted and a good look at the trick drop-out forks that came standard on these bikes and no other model.

Not entirely true, but you'll be happy to know they also appear on the VF1000R production racer  ;)

Nice work on the project, and man that tank is *huge*  :o

cheers
