    Alrighty then... Performance parts have started to arrive. Still waiting on the camshafts, pistons and rods as these are fabricate to order parts.

    We don't even need to see your face to see the kid on Christmas morning grin. That much new fun in a pile of boxes, I'll bet for a while you forgot all about the Visa bill that will follow them home. Yes I'm jealous Ohlins and Keihin are two of my favourite words.

    Small detail, but when you go to replace those studs, keep in mind that the rear ones get very close to the main oil gallery that goes across the upper case. It isn't unheard of to have a bit of porosity in the case in that area. If so, oil will find its way up the threads of the stud and down the front of your cases. That could spoil your fun seeing it happen on a fresh rebuild.... plus some folk assume its the base gasket leaking and that can lead to further heartache. It was common on the first batch of the DOHC 4's and the CBX as well. The factory started using thread sealant and the problem went away. So... make sure you use thread "sealant" not thread locker. I use stuff from Loctite, if I can find (and still read the # on the tube), I'll post it. All I remember at the moment is what it smells like and it stinks.

    this stuff does make me smile. but i'm pretty jazzed about the new electronic ignition system you see there. and yes, that CR Keihin... looking that over and noticed a lot less of the bullshit you find on the CVs; no drain plugs, hoses, etc. The big grin, however, will come when I unbox those shiny pistons and rods.

    Last build ?..... sorry for repeating myself. I didn't realize you were the fellow that tackled that 900C. How did it end up BTW.... as far as the chain part goes?

    Chain conversion turned out "ok." chain travel is relatively unencumbered, and I've installed a chain guard on the pivot point to protect everything (in place of a chain tensioner). put newer wheels on and have put about 50 miles on it without an issue. overall, i'm happy with the outcome, but right now, it sits in front of me to remind me of what NOT to do with this build. here's a picture of the finished project.
