Proj3ct z3ro

Hello. my name is Mace.
i like to fix things.
Today i have a total piece of sh1t .....Its a k4 gsxr that has been sitting for about 4 years and is almost too far gone to bring back to life.
In this thread, I will rewire the harness, and try to bring it back to life.
first step. get power to the matrix.
first step achieved. I will have to create a skeleton key for the bike using a 100 ohm resistor.
Then I will get a stock header from ebay and a radiator to make it run.
I joined back in 2005 and have been bringing bikes back to life since then,
Please follow my build and lets see if I can resuscitate another neglected gsxr

Thanks for checking it out. After some thought, I began to part the bike out. I was thinking i could sell some parts, and keep some parts, and then buy another parts bike and build one from all the free parts. Im not sure if it will work, however there is a large supply of this model lying around everywhere so I will attempt to build one for free by selling parts from one bike and keeping parts from another. Im not sure if it will work or i will have a backyard full of junk but its worth a try.
ill keep this thread updated on the Frankenstein build.

engine was locked up from the flywheel hitting the stator and probably some rust inside one or two of the bores. I poured some two stroke oil down the bores and removed the stator and plugs and now the engine is rotating by hand. Im not sure if it will run or not, it was crashed pretty hard.
Tried tapping out the flywheel dent, dont think thats gonna work it still rubs. But the engine turns over now when i jump the solenoid.

gonna be a slow build. Good thing is, a whole set of plastics is like 140 to the door. unreal. used to cost 5-600.

It lives.
tapped out the flywheel so it wasnt binding and put a new case cover on just to see if it would turn over with the plugs in. It did. So, I run up to the store grab some oil and throw it in. The bike would only turn when I jumped the solenoid but the fuel pump would prime ....so I figured it was the clutch switch. Ran an old piece of wire between the two leads and the old bitch came to life. Sounded like a bag of hammers for about 20 seconds and was blowing smoke from all the two stroke oil and I almost turned it of because I thought it was gonna blow....then all of the sudden the oil made it into all the passageways and the smoke stopped and it was running good. I checked the battery while it was running, and I am getting no charge, so Ill probably need a new flywheel and stator but I didnt want to buy parts for it if the engine was trash. I warmed it up to operating temp and it began to leak from the radiator cap and oil from under the water pump which I hope is just that oring that goes around the shaft. The 05 garnered enough spending cash to invest into another bike and I still have most of the 05.
I will build one bike for track and one for street. the one for track will just sit in the garage and look pretty because I dont ride track.
Cliffs; it runs
it needs a new rad cap and an oring for the water pump shaft.
also a new flywheel and stator/rectifier
battery
fairings
enough talk
picture time
