Looking forward to seeing it.
You finally buy a big wheel bike?
Oh ya. Was riding a Honda 599 (naked CBR600) for a while, and now on a Yammy FZ6. partially explains my scooter absense
As promised here's some of that weekend progress:
1st order of business is getting a workable bottom-end. this motor has seen a lot of time uncovered outside apparently, and with a completely frozen crank outlook seemed bleak. piston was fuzed to bore too, bonus. try as I might to free things up, I got nowhere and ended up smashing my index finger with a hammer. Swelled up like a summer sausage and hurt like *. First setback.. ugh
Luckily, I got a lead on a nearby backup and in short order (2hrs later) managed to source another jog based donor: A mostly complete yamaha vino that has also weathered some outside time, but kicks over!=spinning crank. So there is hope. Scooped the whole thing up, just in case. More spare parts! Thanks to Jason at The Motorcycle Shop for this one.
Rest of the weekend consisted of pulling engine #2 and thoroughly flushing the bottom end of any junk, plus degreasing rest of the motor and prepping intake surface (no before pic, sry).
Additionally, the stock top end received the same treatment. Cleanse and prep to running condition. Gorilla epoxy'd the cracked stock intake mani, and pieced together a leftover 17mm Vento carb. Vino uses funky dual pull throttle, no bueno. I repurposed a stock spree cable using a hammer (being mindful of my hurt finger..) hacksaw and locking pliers. Seems like it'll work the slide! even if its only for a test. These things will come into play for Goal#2
(^no pics of this yet, will add)
Goal#1 is to achieve spark. Crossing fingers stator n electrics are intact.
Goal#2 is to get it to run, in stock form and assess how well crank operates. Greatly hope to be able to use existing bearings, as splitting cases and deeper engine work will delay progress almost guaranteed.
