So i have had this bike about 3 week's now, and have been slowly getting through a few small problem's with it. I've ordered a new windscreen for it to replace the cracked screen ex china, should be here soon. I had to pull the ignition switch out and grease up the steering lock rod so it could be locked. And i punched in some marking's for the key while it was out. Horn didn't work, i tried adjusting it but couldn't get a peep out of it so i pulled it apart and the internal's were rusted up, i ended up borrowing the horn of my '85 IT200L for the time being. Will have to find a decent 12v low tone horn for the FZR. Bought a new battery for it and fitted that (didn't come with a battery) The FZR was hard to start from cold so i thought i'd check the carby's out, found a heap of red dirt sitting in the bottom of the fuel bowl's. Grit blasted the bowl's inside and out and refitted them (will bead blast them when i change the grit for glass bead's when i empty my blasting cabinet next) Got it back together and was still hard to start so a couple of day's later i took the carby's off and gave them a better clean out including removing the jet's and jet tower's, slide's and needle's etc and gave it all a good blow out with compressed air. Found someone had swapped the main jet's over between carby 3 and 4 so swapped them back into the right carb's again. Pilot jet's are #10, Start jet's are #42.5, main jet's are 97.5 on the outer's and 100 on the inner's Needle clip's in the centre slot's and mixture screw's are all at 4 turn's out atm. (Waiting for my Infared Pyrometer to arrive to set them up spot on) The standard reg/rect was a bit iffy (had a few blackend bulb's) the battery would sit a 12v at idle, and rise to about 12.5v @ 5000 rpm. I found a post here re upgrading the reg/rect, so i lengthened the wiring to mount the R6 reg/rect up off the left side of the pillion seat under the fairing The battery negative cable felt pretty hard so i replaced the earth lead with some 8 gauge ofc with new terminal's. Started the bike after the reg was fitted and wiring done, and it now idle's at 12.6v and peak's at 14.2v @ 4000rpm's. I also pulled the ignition coil's off the mounting bracket cleaned up the light surface rust on the coil end plate's and smeared them with dielectric grease to stop it from coming back. Seem's to have helped the spark a bit as when i was trying to start it before it would start on 3 then all 4 would fire after a couple of second's Today i dropped the exhaust off and cleaned it up in my blasting cabinet only to have my compressor play up half way through. Ended up hooking up my small compressor and finished the blasting but took a fair bit more time to do. Going by the very fine/light spot's of rust i'm guessing that the pipe's are magnetic stainless ? I was looking at the weld's inside the pipe's at the flange and thought i may as well grind them down a bit to help out the exhaust flow. After blasting them i gave the pipe's a coat of high temp Duplicolour silver Checked out the EXUP and found it was all good, no play in the butterfly and cable's didn't need adjusting Here is the bike after my first outing on it, i took it out for a ride about and got about 20 min's from home and the sky's opened up, so i turned around and headed home in the pouring rain. I had my Dririder jacket on with my Draggin pant's, MX helmet and goggle's and MX glove's so i got a bit wet. Rear end slipped a few's time's on the slick road's. I have only taken it out 4 time's so far, couple of time's during the day and a couple of time's at night. I'm starting to get used to the bike a bit more now, pushing the left bar to turn left, and the right bar to turn right is a lot different to riding dirt bike's. And having to keep the rev's up above 5000 too, i'm not used to that (tuning?) On my last ride i was on my way home at night when i come around a roundabout and accelerated away, i saw a branch and leave's in the gutter up ahead, as i got close the branch turned around and looked at me, then decided it wanted to cross the road in front of me, it was big fat a koala !! lol Had to swerve a bit to go around him but it was all good.
