Oneway would like to thank - March 16, 2009, 09:54 AM

in no particular order and this is not meant to bash, degrade, undermine anyone or place, just a list of Oneway's experiences over the past year.

TPG - for being a cool group of dbags(except for ARC, he's not a dbag) haha that are always ready to lend a hand(or not) haha....for leaving me when I crash, but they did make sure I was ok (I told them to finish the ride, so it was cool) that had to be longest most crooked front end ride home ever

my ex - she'll prolly never see this, but every crash, every time the bike goes in the shop, if it's just to icy out to ride - she has been there, regardless of AM/PM

Devil Dawg - for workin with me and figuring out the charging issue which resulted in a new stator, R/R, and wiring harness. They kept it real with me and informed me that if there was a cheapo way around it, they would have done it, but the system was just too far gone and hacked to try and replace one thing. And the guy that hid all my wires, I suck at names, I think it was Aarron.

Champion Motorsports - for forcing me to learn about my own bike by missing the simple things. Which forced me to get a 2nd opinion. Now that Dieder is there...hopefully he can turn that place around. (Search that place on Craigslist, I'm not the only one)

RNR - for the 60% leak down test results in cylinder 1. Which forced me to get a 4th opinion.

Baileys Crossroad Cycles - for flushing my fuel system over and over and over again and telling me my issue was fuel related...then charging me $750 and handing me back a still crappy bike, which forced me to get a 3rd opinion

Colgan Powersports for the awesome customer service and getting me my 530 -1/+2 sprockets with great pricing. Looking forward to the 21st.

Ccastle28 for taking the time to run over here and look at my headlight with me...even though it turned out to be nothing, thanks dood.

gixxer.com for the awesome search results and overall awesome online help

Suzuki for making an evidently rock hard engine....just a shitty cam chain tensioner

and of course, the best for last - a member on here that asked to remain nameless and I can respect that .... took the time to check my valves, explained to me the specs, pulled my cams, and while putting everything back, he noticed my timing was way off. Explained/showed me how everthing was supposed to line up...pulled my cam chain tensioner and explained/showed me that is was shot to hell. Took the time to walk me through everything step by step, even the sprocket and chain install. It was also VERY awesome to see a mechanic not afraid to crack open the manual. Good stuff.

Needless to say - Oneway's GSX-R750 is back. Now, since the money pit is all closed up, I can finally start modding this damned thing

if you are wondering...yes...a shot-to-shit spring loaded cam chain tensioner caused my timing to jump after a jerky bump start in March of 2008 and it was now off by a few teeth. A year's worth of drama is laid to rest.

As it was explained to me, there still maybe some very slight leak down due to riding it with bad timing for so long...carbon build up, etc etc but honestly...I can't feel a damn thing but smooth acceleration

I can say with mild confidence lol, that I know my shit about the 99 GSXR 750

When I started reading this, I thought you were going to off yourself or something.




Glad you're bikes ok now.


Right up the 1 hole.

It sucks you in and before you know it you look back and are like, WTF I could have put a nice chunk down on a new one or whatever.

It is the same thing with my animals. Everyone thinks I am just some animal freak. While I do care about them alot, I dont think if you said, Sir your animal is going to cost you $17K or it is going to die I would have done it. Since it comes a little at a time over a period of 2 years it is what it is! Don't regret it for one minute however!

Good job sticking with the problem when so many on this board just said sell or get a new engine!

The ultimate cost is really based upon how much you value your time at. Buying a new engine would have been substantially cheaper once his time was factored in.

In either event, congrats on getting everything working Oneway!

Thanks NR

engines were running around $700...then we have to talk about shop costs and $/hr to take out the old one and check out + drop in the new one...considering the problem wasn't directly engine related...I like to think I made a good decision overall, except for the time part (but all I do is work and sleep anyway lol)....seeing how a new-to-me engine would have come with the same shitty cam chain tensioner...I think I came out even or slightly on top lol.

and I agree n2sport...i wasn't able to drop money like that at once on a new engine and shop costs....but having it spread out over time...I was able to manage...
