I wrecked...So Doth I rebuild - July 25, 2007, 11:10 AM

Just making a bit of an online journal and build thread for my bike,
nothing too special going on. I'm upgrading a few things, redoing a few things at the same level, and in some peoples opinions probably down grading things.
But none the less here it is

I believe July 14th I wrecked my bike into a guard rail on a group ride and this is how she came out




Mechanical damages: Gearshift Shaft cracked @ the motor
phyiscal damages: both fairings were cracked, front hugger was shattered, nose cone was shattered, and right ram air tube was shattered.

so work begins
taking the body off the bike


stripped nasty paint off fairings, possibly fixable but probably need to order new ones


Brought the bike inside to my shed and with Audi's (john) help drained the fluids and removed the motor


I took off the right side to see parts that i had to work on in order to replace the gear shift shaft

yay for my clutch...looks clean in there

so since the motor is out to fix the shaft I decided to clean up the frame and replace some parts that are starting to wear

Using ENGINE BRITE gel to degrease the 7 years of junk
this is the result


(the bike stays on bike stands, but we had to carry them back to the shed first before we could bring the frame back)




the wheels were removed to be cleaned, painted and sprocket upgraded.

plans are to get SS brake lines, RK quick accel chain kit which is 16/42 setup with vortex sprockets, new brake pads f/r because mine are looking a little thin and old (7years) replace the brake fluid with better stuff, make the frame black, fairings will be white, and wheels a bronze (subi STi type)
probably cote the calipers in color as well.

If anyone has tips on removing a chain that would be great
also have to check my valve clearances

to remove a chain you use a cutting wheel or dremel by cutting the pins out of one of the links then you use a chain breaker tool to push the two nubs you ground down on the link out the back.

If the chain is a 530 you wont be able to use it with a sprocket setup (520) so you need to get another chain anyway.

Ben I'm going to be ordering an RK KIT...which comes with 520 RK chain and VORTEX sprockets

RK 520 Conversion (steel) Quick Accel Kit for GSX-R750 00-03

? Feature lightweight wave design, 520 pitch steel sprockets
? Made from S45C induction hardened high-carbon steel, shot peened and zinc plated
? Slightly heavier than aluminum, these rear wave sprockets last 3 times longer than aluminum
? Kit specs:
Chain: 520XSO-110
Oem Gearing: 17-42
Kit Gearing: 16-42
RK Chain with Vortex Sprockets

I think this should work rather well for me

And yup I'm doing things with the help of John

Removing chain...

I have a chain breaker tool, it is a handy item to own if you are keeping the chain.

Bolt cutters work better. Handy to own, if you are not keeping the chain.

I'm not a street fighter nor naked bike fan, but she will look that way for a few while the fairings are being fixed/painted.

Today's update:
We'll John and I were able to get a nice amount done
I dremel cut the chain off and removed the swing arm

Step one:
scuff/sand the frame


Step two:
degrease and clean the frame


Step three:
tape


Step four:
suspend/dry/make sure its clean and ready


Step five:
first coat of truck bed liner down (use Q tips in threaded holes, John's idea)



Step Six and Seven:
more layers and let dry
