my bike SHES ALIVE!

muhahhaa

oh man, talk about a minor rebuild, last year i crashed, big deal, but the issue was i cracked and distroyed the coil pick up cover, once i got her home and took it apart, there were small peices inside the housing which inside back falls right into the pan/gear/oil pick up etc.

so i decided to take the safe route, removed everything, and checked for anything.

WELL, NOTHING got in there thank god, the filter screen was clean, sifted the oil nothing!

put it all back together put some oil back in here and BAM she started pretty dam good for not turning her over in 4 months!

now i am making a decision today, and i think its the best choice.

gut it and sharkskin it and make it a total track whore, i was thinking of getting a gsxr750 and making it a track whore and putting this back on the street.

BUT i want a chopper and a NEW sportbike for the streets.

i have lost the carefull love for this bike, i treat the parts as if they wernt new anymore. i think the carefull love is gone, dont get me wrong i dont treat it like shit, but i dont baby the stuff anymore, not to mention i have so much race shit on this bike, that i would NEVER get close to what its worth, so why not just track it, and deal with it eating tires up?

thats my issue right now.

It's not easy to let her go...kinda like putting your pup down. It's what is best for her though. Be gentle. It's the right thing to do.



































But seriously...
Im in the same boat in a way, I decided to hang onto mine for one more season. The difference though is that my bike doesn't eat tires and is a good trackbike. You've got a beast there and now you want to spend another grand+ on Sharkskins and paint? You're digging a deeper hole than you're already in. Leave it as it is and ride it to the ground, or sell it.

Plus I bet Shannon would buy some off those 9 goodies you got.

talked to jim, my mentor, he suggested to keep it.

i have to much into it, and set up to race, then it is a street mechine, not only that, i am not out to break and track records. i am there to have fun, and get better. not to mention even 04 750 valves are shit, and the engine is really unreliable. my bike has 32k on it, and the compression is still TOP NOTCH! 160PSI last we checked all across the board. "thats impressive"

"mainly cause i take care of her"

so at this point, i am gutting it TODAY!

anyone wanna buy 9r parts let me know.

this bitch is finally getting race prep'd!

Sping is here! Have fun. It makes sense to me. You are way comfortable on that beast and like you said, you are not racing. So why not?

Time for some new street toys...

I'm as guilty as they come in the indecisiveness department so I can't comment on the three years it took Ken to make this decision.

Hope it doesn't take that long to decide on a street bike. I'll miss ya out there bro

yeah i just have way to much into that bike, not to mention once i gut it, it WILL be dam close to the gix1000 if not dead on, i will junk as much shit as i can.

also too yeah tire eater but ohwell.

price i pay for hpr, maybe this year i can learn to trust the tires more, enter hotter then rolling the exit like a fucken nut case spinning up the back.

i am gonna work alot harder this year, and i know i will crash again.

which reminds me i need my leathers fixed and maybe a new helmet.

Hey Ken,
I just saw the neatest chopper in cycleworld. It also has a pic of you in it.
Do you get a copy? Would you like me to toss it in the mail to you?

Don't thank me yet. I got distracted this morning with my 4 year old and spazed it. I added it to my to do list and set a bloody alarm this time. Monday...

Unless I turn into Super Spaz!
