Hi Guy n Gals. Since this Bike was purchased wrecked and stripped I've going forwards then backwards on harness and nomenclature getting things sorted out. Today after testing the ebay speedo headlight and tip sensor II removed it all. I also tested the harness tip delete Jumper. Everything checks out. Removed the airbox installed a set of plugs that I didn't like ( champion race) only thing available while on my parts run. Hit the button she runs. Removed radiator mounts to straighten them up gotta put it all back so I can test fit my Auctmart plastics. Still in the box. As you can see there is tons left to do..

You did check that the frame structure is not bent or compromised in anyway, I hope.
I did that before I spent the first Dollar on ebay. Somebody likely the original owner loved on this machine. It was obvious by the kind of remnants I found in addition to the chrome lower tree clamp this frame and swingarm are powder coated. Once I'm done fitting, I will have to decide how I want clean up. Choices redoo the P.C. or frame skins. It's a straight bike. I'm surprised these carbon fiber coated wheels were still on it. Likely because the tires are shot. Even the chain and sprockets are 90%. She's a keeper.

Ive noticed this Flame thing is quite popular.. is this a by product of valve timing or some kind of add on?

I know nothing about Honda tuning, but it is tuned (Expert v2.0).

It has a full Ti Akro exhaust with no catalytic converter, so straight pipe from header to muffler.

On my 781 rwhp Camaro SS, my wife was behind me once and said she seen flames. Also LT's, straight pipes to mufflers with no catalytic converters.

So I'd say it's partially the tune (how it's fueled between WOT, shifts and deceleration) and having straight pipes.

Catalytic converters are there to burn unburnt fuel basically, so I'd think the flame from burning fuel wouldn't make it out of the muffler as a result.

Finally got the work done in the shop for the day. Mounted the adjuster brackets to the projector beam adapter plates. I could see paying $100 buck for a couple small pieces of sheet metal. Just gotta clean em up and prep for the powder ovens.

Been spending a good bit of time fixing up my '05 1000RR after a 100mph track lowside last season. All things considered it did pretty well. The Sharkskinz got worn through in a few places, the (brand new) rearset got screwed, and a clipon bent.

New Vortex rearset installed, upgraded to Bonamici clipons, and I plan to do some fiberglass work on the fairings when it warms up a bit. Also need to bleed the clutch. Should be back to her former glory in time for my next trackday in April.

Also, is there a preferred section for build threads? Not sure if they just go in general or what.
