Rad. and screen cleaned and repainted.

Pulled the header off and hit it with some Works bowl cleaner and a green scotchbrite pad.
Before.

After.


The black tank just looked to out of place to me so hit it with some gray primer.

After that got out for a little ride with my buddy Dan

Yes it's stainless.
As far as faster don't know yet we haven't ran them but Dan's is stock with a pipe,
pods and a jet kit and should make mid. to high 90's hp at the tire and I'm thinking I shoud be about 130 + hp at the tire.

Wow that header looks awesome! I have a super crusty stainless Yoshimura exhaust I need to clean up Ill give that stuff a try. Its so oxidized in places it looks black, I think it had header wrap on it at some point.

I've read about using it on stainless and this was the first time I tried it.
Using rubber gloves I poured some on the scotchbrite and scrubbed the pipe then a water rinse. took about an hour's time.

I was curious, so I looked up the MSDS for The Works Toilet Bowl Cleaner. I just thought I'd mention that the active ingredient is Hydrochloric Acid. I don't have any opinion about that, but I figured maybe someone else might be curious as well. Using gloves seems like a good idea, as well as a thorough washing of the parts after cleaning.

I think I've posted about how the lower shock mounts on the swing arm are in to far and pull the
bottom of the shocks in so tonight got to looking at what I need to do to fix that.
Simple fix cut them off and make new mounts and have them welded on arm's cro-mo I don't have a Tig welder

Got to thinkin and came up with a way to use the mounts that are on it and make some adjustable mount's.
Cut a 2" thick piece off a 4x4x12 piece of alum I've got and fired up the getto mill.

Had this thing out last Sunday for a little ride to do some launch practice time to learn how to ride it.
Cold street so a good burn out to get some heat in the tire for the first hard launch bring the rpm's up to about 5000 rpm
slide the clutch out and pin the throttle and it's all I could do to fight the wheelie.
Second gear more wheelie's but could ride it out hit third gear it's still trying to lift the front tire and is flat hauling ass.
