Or find an r6 starter clutch and do swap that will outlast the motor.    I did it on my 750 and never had another problem.
Thanks. He didnít mention what year range R6

Looking good fella, feels great getting the hoop on!  Glad you found someone to make it for you, looks perfect.

And damn I'm jealous of your weather.
I looked high and low for someone local but they all wanted close to $150. I just went on amazon and bought one for $30 and had to tweak it just a tad to make it fit but not much. Iím finding Colorado has some crazy weather swings. One day itís sunny and 55į then wake up to snow. Then two days later itís sunny and still in the 50s.

I was hoping to be further along by now but itís been hanging around 15įF (-9įC) during the day. I got a little grinding done on the hoop welds and got the basement warm enough to get the first coat of primer. Iím using Eastwood 2K Aero-spray epoxy primer. It looks good so far.

Paint is done! Time to hang the motor.

Thanks man. Itís a slow process because family and work take up most of my time and the bike gets a few hours a week at most. But with winter fully settled in now itís forced me to take my time and not rush because I canít go ride it anyways. I think Iíll end up with a nicer bike because of it

Starting to look like a motorcycle again. Sadly I wonít have time to touch the bike for the next three weeks.

Looking very good. Stepping away for a while can be a good thing.

May I ask how did you fit the engine into the frame? I myself is working on a similar bike (1980 CB750F DOHC) and on the stage of mounting the engine. I will have a friend coming this weekend to help but I wonder if it possible to do it solo.

I took the engine out while the bike was on the center stand and used a motorcycle jack and a few pieces of wood to support the motor then slid it out the right side.

To get the motor back in was much easier because the frame was by itself after  painted it so I had the motor sitting on the table and just lifted the frame onto the engine. Both times I was by myself.
