Some updates on my K2 750 I crashed last year
So this bike has undergone surgery a few times since some of you last saw it. Everything was done by myself and friends who I work on cars and bikes with. She's got a lot of character but has had over 5000 miles out in her since she was crashed with very few issues. Originally I was going to put everything in a 600 frame since I bought a k3 for cheap, but someone offered me sufficient money for me to part with it. So since I already had the 750 torn down to just the engine, frame and swingarm I decided to prime paint, and clear coat it. Came out pretty good.
So a gear in the electronic STVA motor went(my fault), so we just removed the secondary butterflies and called it a day. Runs fine just needs an extra minute to warm up before it has power.
Went with a vortex -1/+6 steel sprockets for 16t/48t, black EK 520 chain. The 750 keeps up with my K9 1000 for the most part until you shift into 3rd gear, then gets roasted, tops out around 160mph.
For paint I was limited with what I could get locally so rustoleum high heat black for the frame and duplacolor red for the subframe and wheels. The front wheel has formed a bubble recently after riding on a 95 degree day but isnt too bad. Clear coated with 2k high gloss. I did 1 and done coats on everythinf since I couldn't be bothered with this bike, just wanted it rideable for now.
Reason for wanting to swap frames is after the crash this bike wants to go right ever so slightly when you take your hands off the bars. Isn't much but it is there. Ride's fine and haven't had any issues. And believe me those 5000 miles were hard, on the rev limiter, using all of the tires miles lol. She had 19xxx at the time of the crash now closing in on 26000.
Only real complaint about this bike is it has some hesitation around 4k and 9k RPMs, so if you don't know how to tame the bike and try to power through it you'll find yourself in a wheelie or off the road once you hit like 4500 rpm. Still working on that. Pump tested fine, I have another set of injectors I'm going to try. Still have a spark plug stuck in the head if any of you remember. The hex on it is completely rounded out. Hoping it lasts the life of the bike if not I have another 750 motor.
So now is time for the pics. The stickers add 1 horse power each. Has a yoshi slip on that was on the 600 parts bike. Friend dumped the bike a month ago in a parkinglot and the label broke off. Sounds great though lol. Even thought the bike is fairly shitty somehow I get complimented on it pretty often when I ride it. Have to say the powerband with the sprockets makes it much more scary than my 1000. Lol
