    Awesome bike Doyle! I haven't been on the Org for a while and when Pacemaster told me what you've been up to, well, all I can say is WOW! If I see you on the truck route, or any of our favorite mountain passes this season, I'm gonna pull over to the side of the road and give way to what will undoubtedly be the fastest thing on two wheels this area has ever seen! I hope I'm someday privileged enough to see/hear your beast in person. Again................WOW!!

    I hope you have a discount on tires........ Especially rears! The front will probably have 5% wear to each rear tire that is worn out! Bikes with big power goe through rears tires like a bad habit.... Especially if you play with it!:rulez: which I expect nothing less from you!:poke::rofl:

    nice color! I'm thinking of that sparkle black for when I change color to my busa. Or perhaps some dark grey...

    Not a whole lot in the way of progress, but little by little we will get there. Going to put in a lot on this bike this week to get a large batch of parts to the powdercoater. The cast iron turbo housing was pretty rusty, but thanks to some Navy Jelly and a brass wire brush I was able to get it clean.

    Pulled this off of Doyle's other bike and am going to clean it up and have it powdercoated.

    I'm in Taos and Santa Fe doing some amazing bicycle riding (roadie), it's fun to see things are still happening even though I'm out of town!

    Did some work last night and I dropped off some stuff at the powder coater this morning.

    First thing was to remove the passenger peg mounts, lots of guys just remove the pegs, I got rid of the tabs as well. Now one side will be a license holder and the other will be exhaust.

    I painted them before I sent them to the powder coater to check my work, looks good.

    Did the same thing to the rashed up stator cover, she will look great in powdercoat.

    Here's everything that's getting coated and yes I told them not to powdercoat the fins, we will give that a nice coat of paint to make it match.

    this thing should rip, I loved that bike before, but I guess you found a way to make it better.

    Got the parts back from PC today, they look like dam paint! This guy is so good at PC, definately will be using him for future builds.

    One doesn't realize the cosmetic improvement of the innercooler and radiator going black until you look at the industrial grey pics of before!

    Got the radiator reassembled and ready to bolt up.
    IMG_20130427_143210_943_zps501f9cf0.jpg


    Pulled some block offs out of inventory and replaced the self tapping screws.
    IMG_20130427_143227_980_zps4a5ac6b2.jpg


    Reassembled the stator and cleaned the back side for the new gasket once it gets here.

    Sprocket cover and stator cover installed

    Looks like someone did some porting work, last I heard Yoshimura did the work and the cams on this engine.
    IMG_20130427_164738_361_zps621f9ce7.jpg

    Got most of the new fuel lines run, looks like I need one size bigger for the fuel pump and the fuel rail.

    Finished off with the plenum and some polish work.

    Just curious, does painting the radiator fins reduce its ability to diffuse heat by much?

    Not at all (unless you lug it all the way from Kadena to Schwab on a hot day!)
