Took the day off work to swap out the old foobar'd engine and put the nice ex mss bsb lump in....

bloody hell HOW many connectors!??! only done my zxr400 when i was racing them... I can now appreciate how much more electronics goes into the bike!!

got it finished and started on the button... only forgot to tighten up one water hose.. so i consider that a success ;-)







just waiting for the bodywork to come back from the painters and I can finally get the beast on the road [clap]

You got that bike stripped down pretty far. My bike's been apart so many times the hardware is about wore out.
Got any pics of the new paint?
