Talking My Track Bike Is Home

FINALLY !!!!!!!

It's not out of the water yet though.... I have a motor mount bolt to fix that is broken off but other than that she runs not the screaming machine the seller claimed even after fixing everything we foudn wrong but I guess for now I'll have to accept 124 hp something about loosing compression on the upper portion but ok on the lower...

when I get home I'll scan the dyno report so you techy people will understand LOL since I don't

is this the gixxer? Did you ever find out about that picture that Keith posted? There were too many similarities to not question it...

I wouldn't mind reading exactly what they said bout the bike....losing comp on upper end? It may be running lean or rich...but I have not heard of an engine that loses compression on the big end

1999 or 98 (dont' remember now been so long LOL) Gixxer 750

he tried to lean it and enrich it with the mapping of the powercommander and it didn't make a difference until he went drastically one way or the other and then it was not a good effect achieved...

Brighton has the coolest set up he has a sealed dyno room with air and gas analizers and more shit that I dont' know about or understand heheeee... and he did a great job cleaning this heap up and getting it running... it was in horrible shape like it sat uncared for for a VERY long time.. rust in places and corrosion in others crispy burnt wires and non working parts and incorrectly adjusted or replaced parts - hell the seller had the butterflies in totally opposite of what they should have been and thats one of the reasons why when you turned the throttle to a certian position and the bike would rev around 3 grand then immediately jump up around 12 and die out.... the rectifier was fried the front forks needed to be rebuilt needed new chain sprocket brakes air in break lines and pistons.. there was sludge in the radiator and took him several flushings to get it clean... tank has rust... D & D canister has rust in it... the radiator lines leaked... uhm... and there probably was more that I'm missing..

I didn't have time last night to scan the print out I'll have to do that tonight...

as for letting my hair down.. yea I guess I could since I wont be able to go as fast on the Gixxer as my 929 I wouldn't ahve to worry about the knots in my hair

no clue about the status of the bike in the picture - never persued it...

LOL.. yeah I got all dates scheduled to attend except April 30th.. I couldn't get off work for it but there may be a wee bit of hope in my getting it off after all.. depends how things go tomorrow... testing out a stand in to assit in the office while both myself and the other office lady are out at the same time... they dont' normally allow for us both to be out cause then there is noone to run things... but none the less I'm getting side tracked here.. I hope you do make it to a few and I say a few cause once you go you'll not be happy with NOT going back again
