Hey whatsup gsxr.com
My name is Mace. I like to work on motorcycles. Today, its a k5 gsxr600.
I received the bike in non running condition with 17k on the clock. I never heard it run, because the previous owner and about 20 people could not get it to fire.
The bike has been sitting for about 5 years in my estimation after digging into the beast.
The previous owner cut up the wiring harness trying to get it to fire and also destroyed the Secondary throttle valve actuator and the front brake master cylinder.
A list of other things were destroyed as well, including but not limited to; the headlight wiring harness, the rear brake master cylinder/ rearsets/gas tank, fuel pump, etc.
So, I get the bike and begin teardown, Removing the rear fiberglass race tail, I notice that the tip over sensor had been removed from its perch, so I place it back where it belongs.
Then I begin to rewire all the connections that have been cut off like the crank sensor etc.
No neutral light is showing on dash, so I assume its safety lockout preventing him from getting fire and preventing him from having the start button/fuel pump prime.
So, I turn on the key,pull in the clutch and put the kickstand up, and I hear the fuel pump prime for the first time in 5 years.
Dropping some oil into the bores to let sit for a few hours to lubricate the rings, I grab the headlight wiring harness and the the headlight flickers on/bad connection.
Clearing out the bores a little, with some cranking, and then replace plugs and drop a few drops of raw gas in the throttle bodies
The STVA is disconnected, and now I have to find a way to make the bike run proper without that crap on there.
Follow me as I bring this bike back from the dead and do A complete makeover from fuel delivery to bodywork and paint.
ROD3NT GSXR BUILD
more pics to follow
good; compression/full system/rearsets/fiberglass race fairings
stripped down for maintenance
fuel pump sitting for 5 years
fuel pump cleaning
tank cleaning/ rocks and sand
fuel pump done.
If anyone can help me delete or get the STVA running properly that would be cool, otherwise Ill figure it out .
Thanks for checking it out.
Plan to build a street / endo killer.
Cleaned and bench tested pump.
ready to move to next step.
I am calling this the ROD3NT build because a rat ate the neutral light wire which prevented the bike from firing for 5 years
here is where I am at
which wires go where?
