Installed the new rubber gaskets and triple checked everything. I put a thin coat of Yamabond 4 around it too. 馃

Race fairings should be here tomorrow.

I took the Hawk BSB subframe to my fab guy to make mounting brackets for the SBK tail. He also re-welded the back portion to make it look nicer.

It should be back from powdercoating this week. I ordered Ti bolts to hold the subframe on. All that stuff gets covered up by the tail, but it will look cool naked in the garage between track days. :)

No reason, that鈥檚 how the subframe came. He actually made a bracket to replicate the one that was missing.

I think I fixed the small oil leak from the valve cover too. Wasn鈥檛 too hard of a job at all.

Very nice build you are doing. I'm itching to find another decent gen 1 to tinker with.

I noticed you removed your rubber air deflector. Was it broken? It's an important part of the cooling system. Is your lower V fairing open, exposing the header to airflow?

Is that the rubber flap that goes over the motor?

Yes, the lower front portion is exposed.

you should be OK. It serves two purposes, help dampen noise and vibration and prevent air from going up and over the motor after exiting the radiator.
