My '96 YZF750R

Postby BMiller » Tue Feb 01, 2011 10:47 pm

Sorry for the novel, but it was a LONG weekend!

I got off work Friday at 6PM and headed down to Rob's house in Georgia. I arrived around 11PM. We headed to bed a bit after midnight (12:30AM -ish). Alarm went off at 4:45AM and we were on the road at 5AM. We went to Oviedo outside Orlando and picked up the bike and then shot across the width of the state to Tampa to pick up the engine since the bike supposedly had bad compression and would not run. We arrived back at Rob's house at 10PM after 17 hours on the road. We unloaded, had a beer, headed to bed. Got up Sunday and hung out with his kid for a bit till she was up and mobile, then we started tearing the bike down to really get an idea of what I was dealing with. Let me just say this......while the guy I got it from was cool and honestly probably had never turned a wrench on a bike in his life.....this bike was in the hands of some cheap, ghetto, moron before him. The guy had a fuel pump (not stock) wired in all kinds of nasty underneath the tank. He also apparently had some long bolts, but instead of buying proper length bolts to attach things he just put spacers everywhere.....let's not forget the exhaust. The header is a D&D, the can is some OEM Yamaha can with a Yoshi and D&D emblem riveted on. The headers, mid, piece of mid from stock Yammi can, are ALL WELDED TOGETHER!!! Even though it's all welded, he put clamps on, like 4-5 of them???? The front brake res is some homemade ghetto thing with a zip tie. There are zip ties everywhere. There is a chrome rear brake reservoir cover as well. There was a cross bar under the windscreen for some reason. I'm SURE I'm leaving stuff out, but WOW! Well, we did a little trouble shooting and came to the conclusion the fuel pump was garbage and the starter was fried. Swapped those out and BAM!!! She fired right up! We of course removed most of the garbage off the bike and tossed it. Took the bike around his neighborhood with no issues, went to take a short ride after but it died at the end of his street. The battery isn't charging so I just bought another generator and I'm getting a new battery. I headed back to TN at 6:30PM and got in around 10:45PM Sunday night. Next weekend when I go back to Rob's house we'll slap those on and see if we can't go for a ride! I'm sure I'm leaving a lot out, but I've already wrote a novel. On with the pics! More info to come later!

This sign was to hilarious NOT to take a pic of.....yeah, it's like I'm 12, but I thought it was funny!

Some more updates:

The following weekend I was back in ATL at my buddy's house and we did some more work on the bike:

We swapped out the undertail battery tray for an unmolested one, the wiring harness, generator, and put fresh radiator fluid in along with swapping out the brake lines:

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Then I got it home and took off the old junk exhaust (and boy is it heavy!):
Image

Got my Hindle headers in:
Image

Diagnosing the speedo issue(the stupid rubber hose they added over the cable collects water):
Image
Image

Got my new Hindle can in and completed the exhaust and went for a spin (I also removed the stickers from the back of the tank and the swingarm):
Image
Image
Image

My Goodridge Kevlar lines:
Image
Image

I love that "sock/sweatband" even though they serve no purpose:

So, that's what a D&D Yoshimura exhaust looks like.
FZR400 (1WG): Purchased a perfectly good FZR400 with Yoshimura slip-on/EXUP, Yosh jet kit, Factory ignition advance, Racetech springs and emulators. It even had great bodywork. Like some diseased maniac I had to mess with everything good about that bike. Well, at least I have better brakes now.

FZR400RR (3TJ):Yeah, it's pink.
