Rod3nt k5 gsxr600 build

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
and vroom.
It runs.
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
bad; neglected/rusty/lowered.
pics
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
lulz?
here is where I am at
which wires go where?
hmmm

Nice work so far. Looking forward to hearing how it all progresses.

At least the rat left a bit of wire for you - when one of those little ****ers ate the temp sensor wiring on my bike, it was chewed off right at the connector.

Hey Brah.
Yeah there is an infestation of those little critters. At night around here if you shine a spotlight into the trees they are everywhere running all over the place.
lulz
So day 3. The front master cylinder was jammed up, the previous owner mashed the piston inside and left it like that.
So, i tossed it in some hot water and smacked it a few times with a hammer to free it up. Some PB blaster and a few pumps and it is as good as new. front brakes dialed.
The bike was slammed about 2 inches in the front and 1 inch in the back.
So, I hang the bike from the beams and place the aftermarket dogbone into the "stock position" and return the front end to a respectable 12mm drop.
The bike runs and idles and revs well, Im not sure how it will react under load with the secondary butterflies open and the STVA detached, but I can dial it manually with the cam to warm up and idle, although it seems to hunt just a bit at idle.
The fuel pump was the worst Ive ever seen with about a half a cup of what looked like crushed coal inside where the screen is. I completely disassembled the entire pump, cleaned the entire thing, and ran just the pump motor itself in a glass jar of fuel until it was clean. The black housing was also severely jammed up and the pump was partially re assembled with the housing on, and then run again in a glass jar to make sure the passageways were clean before install. Once the fuel system was ready, it fired right up and sounds beast as hell.
Oil/spark plug change
Fuel system overhaul
Rewire wiring harness
repaint case covers
front brakes
Raise bike back up to stock height
Run bike up to temp and make sure fan comes on/no leaks/rev test etc.
That is my checklist so far, I have a way to go on this build.






Im thinking blue and white on the ROD3NT

Are you aware?
Yes, I have had a few bikes in my time, although i usually only have one at a time.
Today, I began to fiberglass the "carbon fiber " fairing stay back together, one of the ears was broken in two.
I also unstuck the piston on the rear master cylinder with a couple of whacks with a hammer, however somebody sourced the peg from these aftermarket footpegs, and so I will have to identify what kind of rearsets they are and see whether i can re-source a peg to fit.....any ideas? anyone?
I also noticed that although the RK chain was covered in rust, it was only surface rust and the chain had some life left, and so I scrubbed it clean with a wire brush on a drill and lubed it, then I re-adjusted the chain to stock specs.
Latsley, I realized the STVA is missing the arm inside that moves the gear. I am hoping to bypass the entire module by hooking up the wires to the stps, and then fooling the ecu/cdi by rotating the inner portion of the STPS until the F1 light is no longer on...BIG SHOUT OUT TO THE GEEK for helping me out a little as to the correct wiring configuration going into the STPS.
cool dude.
Pics
who makes these rearsets?

chain cleaned with wire brush on drill/ readjusted/ dialed
broken fairing stay

re-fiberglassed/better get used to this I have a ton of fiberglass work to do

STVA nightmare lul

Well the headlight had a bunch of spider nests inside of it and it was all caked up on the projector. I baked it, and removed the lens and polished it back somewhat.
Now I am experimenting with Demon/Angel eye type configurations using battery driven led systems. This way there is no wiring or fluctuation of the stock harness/rectifier/stator.
I have read adding HID/demon/angel systems causes your rectifier to burn out.
After I am done I hope to have an integrated demon/angel/turnsignal headlight. I will have the system run off of a watch battery which can be changed at about 200 hours of run time.
The headlight I wanted is 499$ I figure I can make mine like it for 20 bucks, with less hassle, no wiring, and noeffect on the stock electrical system.

@erikfig I in turn am in admiration of your photography and editing skills. The funny thing is, I dont consider myself a mechanic.....Everyone I know does though as I tend to be "the guy" they goto
when their car wont start or their Harley has been sitting for 4 years. Think I have worked on every single vehicle that I see regularly in my immediate surroundings. I tend to just google whatever I need to learn and end up watching or reading information from others with a higher level of knowledge. I have followed almost every rabbit hole from quantum mechanics,thermodymanics,law,Theology,Philosophy,p hotography,Art,car/boat/bike mechanics....I am trying to reach the end of the internet.
Thanks for checking it out, I was going to throw some blue or red or decals on the bike but it just looked too clean satin white.
so, adding some little details...block off plates arrived.
Its crazy man you could be a virtual ASE trained mechanic by just whipping out your phone and spending a few hours a day on youtube.
Every bit of information you could ever desire to know is right there in front of you
Except the truth
Best,

Thanks! Although after some thought, I have decided to just place some small black sponsor decals angled on the bellypan.
I will keep that in mind however, your offer, as I have about 400 photos from a photoshoot I need to edit and may just ask a question or two if I need a tip or advice.
Good luck in the contest, that is one sweet ride you have there.
