Ah, come one now. You can do the same thing. All you got to do is be willing to sleep in the dog house for a few weeks till the wife gets over the purchase. LOL

Something is lurking, waiting, wanting to be built......It calls to me from the darkness....

I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel....Then I realize that it is the train coming to run my ass over....

Simply because they are Ohlins. I don't view the Racetech as being on the same level as these. Don't get me wrong though as the Racetech stuff is good.

I feel you man, its like I tell my rice rocket friends, no matter how fast they are, the badges are still "toyota, honda, nissan," and not Lambourghini, Ferrari, or even BMW
You can dress up a dog like a lion, but its still a dog

-no disrespect to the ricers, mad props to your fab skillz, I had a 240sx that was held together with zip ties :thumbsup:

Well, it has been a while with the YZF750. I had to sell off the Ohlins front end. I'm still not over that. But some times ya got to do what ya got to do.

I got tired of the miss-matched body work and my plan was to paint it the entire time. So I finally got around to doing it. I thought I had developed a coolant leak or a blown head gasket so I dug into the bike a little but it turned out to be a small weep from a coolant line. That gave me ample time to paint. I used aircraft stripper to get the factory paint off the tank. There was bondo one one spot from the factory as the tank had not been repainted before I got it.

Anyways, here is a reminder of how it looked when I picked it up.

And here it is now.

Since I had to sell off the Ohlins, I wasn't going to go back to the original YZF calipers. They suck. So I did the R6 brake upgrade which also required some Duc rotors so I didn't have to shave down the pads.

Later.
