Project Blue Steele!

so i have been seriously neglecting my CBR for some time now. spending all my time & money first on the SS & now on the VTX. well its time i did some work to it & got it back in riding condition.

i stripped all the plastics off of it today to start removing the old rattle can primer & get them prepped for a new paint job. i also got rid of the fiberglass one piece tail that was on it because it was cracked in several places & the mounting tabs were broken & had been repaired once already & they just wont hold. so i picked up a GSXR 1000 tail (gonna get a seat from egay)at a local shop that is in excellent condition. no cracks, breaks, scratches, & all the tabs are in one piece. i just have to shave a little off the bottom to make it fit my sub-frame.

i removed my rear sets that i had also rattle canned & dropped them off with a friend who has a sand blaster. he's gonna blast them clean for me then i will polish them back up. after all they were polished aluminum already.

plans are to replace all of the cable (already have 2 new throttle cables for it). put SS brake lines on it front & rear. plus i have a new rotor for the back. trying now to find the 2 matching ones for the front rim. gonna get rid of the factory air box & replace it with filter pods on each carb.

engine wise the motor is solid. the bike use to below to my ex's husband & he built it for racing, so i don't really have a lot to do as far as that goes. however i do plan on adding a Factory Pro shift kit to the tranny & a 4* timing mod into the cams. eventually though i will buy a set of high performance cams from Hot Cams for it. i will also rebuild the carbs with a stage 7 FP kit.

for the frame, i plan on having it blasted & powdered Flat Black. i want to Murder the bike out, but my girl wont let me. she wants it painted Blue with a hint of Gray in it.

now here's where someone out there can help me out. the Wiring Harness on this thing is basically shot. i've been searching all over the net trying to find a good used one that has not been cut but not having much luck. now if someone out there has the Electrical Skills to build me a harness using pieces from the one i got, well then i would be in the zone & you'll have some money in your pocket. so let me know if anyone can do it & do it right.

here's a couple of pics & yes i know this is the Dark Xide Section, but trust me it doesnt get much Darker then this bastard. plus its easy for me to keep you all posted on the build without having to track down my thread all the time.

so i've got the bike about half stripped down so far. havent been able to do much with it the last few weeks because i have been busy as hell. but i did get some new parts ordered for it.

i picked up a used gixxer tail from a local shop that is like brand new. has no scratches, cracks, and all of the tabs are there. tonight i ordered some new parts that it has been need of from egay. i was shocked at how low some of the prices were though. here is a list of what i have so far & what is still planned.

on order:
gixxer tail cowl
gixxer undertail w/ built in tail lights & led turn signals
stator
rectifier
factory pro 2* ignition gear
rear brake rotor
clutch cable
throttle cables

gotta get the engine out this weekend so i can get it cleaned up & painted. should look really good with a fresh coat of high gloss black heat paint. so kind i used on the Vette engine.

finally got a chance today to get some work done on Bevo. went to work on it early & by the end of the day this is how she is sitting now out in the garage. got the engine up on the work bench. gonna start cleaning it tomorrow & get it prepped to be painted. i need to fix some of the gaskets on it from where the engine was rebuilt a few years ago because they are starting to leak. i've also got the 2* ignition gear that i need to get set up in the head to advance the timing on it then install the new stator into it as well.

did a little research earlier on how to change out my old analog gauges to a F4I set off a an early 2000 model 600RR. once i get this thing back together its gonna be a great bike again. its been neglected the last couple of years & all the money has went into other bikes.
