Hi I would like to help you.

A little about me,
I'm retired fdny NYC firefighter. I did 2 years of nypd (early 90s) and the remaining years at fdny until I hit my 20 years I took my pension and moved to Daytona to pursue my dream of making bikes with a lot of power. Weather it be building lower compression forced induction engines, cam degree, or dyno tuning. I purchased my first bike from the junkyard in 1990 (when I was 16 or 17 I forget what year that was) it was a wrecked 1988 Honda hurricane cbr 1000r. I spent 2 years and all the money I made working at waldbaums supermarket in Brooklyn ny as a kid. it was then when I discovered why God put me here. Over the years I've restored more bikes then I can remember and parted out the ones that I felt someone could get hurt on even if I restored it perfectly. If I felt it wasn't safe then it want to parts. Unfortunately my dad passed when I was 9 and my mother passed with I was 16 and my sister couldn't afford to send me to Florida to become a motorcycle tech when I graduated high school so I went to work. I did my 20 (retired a few years ago) and finally graduated from wyotech college. With a diploma in Asian concentration Suzuki Honda Yamaha and Kawasaki.
Currently I hold:
Motorcycle technology diploma from wyotech
Wyotech eagle tech award
Suzuki service pro Bronze tech certification (lifetime access to the service).
Suzuki service pro hall of fame induction
Dyno jet dyno tuning certificate

I interned at Lee's word shop in south Daytona and was mentored by Lee Florin who is a legendary master of pulling lost hp out of bikes. Life was good until exposure to asbestos and all that other s#it at the wtc on 911 makes it nearly impossible to maintain any type of employment or even breathe easy anymore.
The reason why I posted this was not to throw my training and accomplishments in anyone's face because there are well more qualified men and women up here that can run circles around my skills. I would just like to help out this community. If you have a question maybe message me. If you're in the Daytona area maybe I can take a look at it. I'm not soliciting anyone here. Not asking for any money. I just want to help you guys and girls get the most out of your bikes. I was known for being a master at electrical and diagnostics. But my love is building hp.

My credentials are available upon request.

I'm sorry for the long story about my hardship growing up. It's therapeutic for me to speak about it.

Thank you for reading and have a blessed day

Btw for a hand full of y'all who know me from back in the day I still own my Brooklyn house so sometimes you may see me selling a bike or bike parts out of Ny. I still go back and forth to sell off parts now and then. So if you see me list a part in ny it's not a scam or anything. I have a lot of bike parts still in ny.

But like I said. If anyone needs any technical help or you need me to look at a bike that you are buying sight unseen as long as I don't have to travel too far from the 32114 zip code. Just shoot me a message and I'll do my best to help anybody here.

Impressive skillset! I've done some tinkering with cars in the past, I had a pretty powerful Trans Am WS6 at one point. But it was mainly bolt ons and trying to navigate my way around a tune set up. At best it was trial and error, but you have to learn somehow right? I'll be sure to bounce Idea's your way when I start modding my bike next year.

No unfortunately I don't. Because of my declining health I would hate to open a shop and leave my wife with the burden of what to do after. I have lifetime affiliation with Suzuki service pro if you ever need to reference anything.

Well unfortunately I don't have any pics of my older builds. I know that In this day and age we live by the (pics or it didn't happen) philosophy which is actually a good thing because it weeds out the bs. When I moved out of ny a lot of my things got misplaced family pictures etc. But also I was never a big picture taker. Back in the 90s you took pictures of the wrecked bike and sent them in with the salvage title application to the DMV dfi unit and they would notify you when to bring it in for dfi inspection.
But I assure you I can do the work. Aside from owning a 2011 R1 that I bought from my uncle when it was 1 year old. I am currently building a 2011 R1 track monster that I bought salvage and rebuilding and my personal bike 10 BMW s1000rr engine as I'm looking for dished pistons to lower the compression so that I can make it a forced induction bike without worrying about overboosting and popping a head gasket. I could take some pics of the engine broken down before I send it to the machine shop. But i could definitely post pics of all my credentials. If anyone needs help in the Daytona area I just sit home all day.

I love doing a lot of projects. It keeps be busy and sane.

The WS6 is that the 89 turbo ta with the Buick 3.8? If so that's one of my dream cars.
I had a beautiful 86 Buick Grand National that I had mildly modded with a maf translator, scanmaster (absolute must have with turbo regard), defi gauges, 60lb injectors with a turbo tweak chip, stage 1 mild built transmission by CK Performance in ny with a nice shift kit(it kicked real nice when going into 2nd gear), 3200 stall torque converter, turbo XS rfl blow off valve ,and the standard alky alcohol injection system that was another must have. It was actually pretty cool because the Grand Nationals were originally blueprinted to come with an alcohol injection system but GM pulled the plug on that because they feared that owners would neglect to refill the alcohol and once they got into high boost "KABOOM". So they lowered the stock boost and just left it out. But getting to my point!!! The dashboard of any turbo regal Gbody has a dashboard light that says "power injection" that is unused because it was meant for the factory alcohol injection to show when if was spraying. But with the alky kit I had it came with a lamp that you could install right into the dashboard so we could use that power injection light when it was spraying. Man it was sick. I used to love driving that car. My next mod was a flowmaster exhaust and a Terry Houston downpipe with an external dump so I could put a larger turbo in down the road.
But In 2012 it was flooded and destroyed by hurricane sandy. Insurance paid me for it and I bought a S1000rr bike and relocated to Florida. One day I'm gunna buy another one.

I have a few pics of that somewhere in my old laptop in anyone wants to see. It wasn't mint but it was a working progress. I figured I would get the power train correct first then worry about the body.

No, but my 2nd car was a 97 Camaro RS with the 3.8L and even non turbo and automatic it was no punk. My Trans Am was a F-body 97 WS6 with the 5.7L LT1, 6speed, and 373 gears. It had full Magnaflow exhaust, cam, roller rockers, throttlebody, and dynotune. She had staggered wheels, 18 in rear 17in front and a 1in lowering kit. 430whp and shifted out of 2nd at 80, 1st gear was nearly useless on street tires unless warmed, but at 19yo who can afford to go through tires that fast. You only make that mistake once haha. I found it was a lot cheaper to have a couple friends sit in the back.

I remember my dad always raved about the grand national. He said treat them with the same respect you would a 5.0 Fox Body mustang, you never know what's under the hood.
