    That's it for today, gonna be ordering parts tomorrow. every bearing in this motor is black, with the exception on one rod bearing (brown). questions for you pros: do these pistons look like they could be stripped, cleaned and reused? what is the best way to clean the surface of the head? regular paint stipper and a wire brush? what site sponsor has the best deal on bearing packages and piston ring packages? last but not least, who's gonna hook me up with one of those fancy starter clutch covers ( only one with a plug that is removable?) let me know what you think, and by all means let me know if you think i'm missing anything!

    Hopefully one day soon I'll be able to build one. I'm in school to be an aerospace mechanic working on c-17s (I'm in Air Force). Always wanted to build a motor myself so maybe that day will be soon. Seeing your posts really got me interested in just buying a stock blown motor to experiment with. Good luck on your build!

    Had to rebuild my ZX9 motor a couple years ago. My race partner builds motors so he helped me with it. It was alot of fun to learn. Bought alot of parts from guys on here. Lots of knowledge from these guys. Good luck!!

    thanks for the feedback! this motor looks like it could have gone another 50k and been just fine, but it is nice familiarizing myself with as much of my bike as possible. im going to end up with stock bottom end freshened up, fresh head with some work from local machinist, studs, a nice gasket and stock everything else. even the rings are going back in. mic'd everything and it all falls perfectly into spec. pistons sat in kerosene overnight and a little toothbrushing those bitches look brand new. really all i want is to keep it reliable and ready for boost this spring!

    Shouldn't be any different on a gen 2. I got to little bastard out with a 10mm socket lol. It's directly underneath the counterbalancer assembly.

    I just had APE gears installed, with intakes cams on both. The guy who did it could not get mine off either. He used a punch, and loosened it that way. I got a new one from the dealer for $13 and change.
    It is better to let one think you a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt....

    Couple questions for y'all before I start putting her back together. This will be 90% street bike... Would you advise with or against removing the counterbalancer? Keep or throw the oil cooler? Remember, street/ strip turbo bike. Thanks!

Size:  33.4 KB Just wanted to update on some progress, if very little... Going to be doing some head work, nothing major, just lapping valves in, clean it up, new valve seals, and while i have it apart im going to have a go at smoothing out the factory casting marks and a few other areas i notice that could use some attention.
