Bloody brilliant build. Favorite quotes from your vid: "f*ck them, they're not building it, I am" and "shut up if you're a naysayer." :thumbup
Thanks for the updates, good luck and keep posting.

Thanks!

I listened to 311's "All Mixed Up" a lot as a youngin and the line "**** the naysayers cause they don't mean a thing." really resonates with me!

Entering the home stretch. I'm about to leave the shop to go find a suitable overflow tank. If I find one the cooling system wil be fully operational. It has what I believe to be a nice, rich, baseline jets in the carbs, carbs are rebuilt. I made a bracket to hold the speedo sensor. It looks better and awesome in person. Phone flash ruins everything, then without it phone camera picks up zero detail. I'll get some real pics later this weekend. The wiring is getting close. If all goes well it should be running in time to celebrate two stroke Tuesday on Twitter. Wish me luck!

I don't have any of the turn signals on yet.

I fixed the leaky clutch cover with a new clutch cover so all is well there. I also filled up the Radiator. I wish my excitement to finish this NOW would rub off on my brother. Oh well. It's supposed to be chilly this weekend so I missed this season anyway.

YZR389X in HDR


It's sort of done-ish. Obviously not paint and powdercoat but the fabrication, wiring, plumbing, etc. is all done. El fin! I spent the day double checking everything! Tomorrow, my brother is bringing a second set of eyes to double check all the wiring on the bike. So maybe at this time tomorrow I will be uploading a video of the bike running. Fingers crossed ladies.
