It's actually pretty simple. This is the first time I ever taken such an expensive item and broke it down into individual parts, bolts, and nuts. Now I may have a tougher challenge in puting it back together, but it only took less than a day to take the whole bike apart minus one last engine bolt.
Damn man... $1,360...
I admire you love for the RR, but after reading your other posts about buying and rebuilding all those other bikes, I just can't help but wonder: Where do you get the money for this stuff? Sounds like you could've bought a brand new CBR 1000 if you wouldn't have done the other projects.
Well, either way, sounds like a fun project you have on your hands. Last saturday I stripped my 250 down to its frame just for the hell of it, to see the insides in detail n stuff. That was, to say the least, a blast! So I can just immagine how fun your project will be. If I had an extra cheap bike lying around, I'd be all over it... or more correctly put, it'd be all over the garage floor
i assume your goin about taking the old engine out and putting the new one in from the bottom of the frame, so just be careful, last thing you would need is droppin a new engine while trying to bolt it up! lol, good luck man post up some before, during, and after pics if you can.
FYI, I bartered with the guy and I got the engine for 1200 shipped. I told him if I gave him a check instead of going through pay pal, if he'd help me out. He also threw in a front master cyclinder for 40 bucks in the deal. So far the total for 2nd rebuild so far:
$1200 Complete motor kit
$40 Front master cylinder
$35 Right clip on
I sell drugs to btw. How else would I afford all these bikes? lol But seriously, I'm in the medical business. Just switched from part time to full time now that this semester is done! Woot. Love making a grand a week.
