    Hey all! Long time no update, didn’t have many good things to show.

    I got the bike running last year, but since insurance and registration as going to cost me quite a bit I put aside the bike for this year. While I wait I decided to fix a couple things that I ignored/didn’t do right the first time.

    Unfortunately when I started examining the bike this year, I noticed one of my engine mounts snapped. I dropped the engine agian, took it to ‘a guy’ and he rewelded the broken part and made a nice ‘cacoon’ around the mount so everything is secured. I then found some paint that wont allow rust to get at the welds and painted it with paint that is 98% color match, so almost perfet.

    -cleaning up wiring a bit better
    -getting rear break pedal mounted (I have woodcraft rearsets so I need a special screw)
    -bought new passenger sets (wanted a helmet lock, mounts for suspension pressure can)
    -powdercoating passenger sets, rider sets, front fairing stay, light brackets (in black to match everything nicely, look super clean and rust free)
    -made new wiring for my fancy F4i speedo (and maybe a backplate to cover the wiring)
    -new screw on engine mounts (mine were beging to look shotty and I ripped one of my threads)
    -mounting DAI back to original

    I do need some assistance from F3 Owners. Can someone show me how the tubes are run? especially the one that goes to the fresh air “whistles” under the headlight.

    I’m sure there will be F3 owners chiming in when they see this to help.. or feel free to post new topics in the forums for each issue for a faster response and more eyes on it. Good to do list so far.. can’t wait to see how she looks when she’s finally done. I bet you’ve been itching to ride her.

    Electrical (these were done partially because I wont have all my fairings for a while.)
    I think I mentioned it before, but I have a F4i speedo, I changed the wiring on it though and made it possible to detach the cables without dismounting the entire speedo.

    I put the RR on a plug, to make it easier to remove if needed.

    Orginized the wiring coming from the engine.

    Esthetics:
    Headlight/Fairing stay and taillight has been cleaned up and paitinged black to match nicely to the frame.

    i have a rear brake pedal! first time since 6 years :O

    Cleaned up or replaced some misc. things that were bothering me

    Next week I’ll be giving my powdercoater some parts to paint for me those include;
    – Original unmodified passenger stays
    – passenger handle bar
    – Woodcraft rearsets
    – Original levers
    – tank
    – some screws and bolts (the engine bolts I’ll spray pait, I don’t want to risk tchem warping or changing in any shape during baking.

    I am ordering a new fuel pump and new fuel lines. I didn’t have the original pump but one from a car so I want to have a proper one finally and never be bothered by it again.

    I’m getting to the point where I’m running out of things I want to fix. Once I finsh up the powdercoating I think I’ll start her up for the first time this year.

    excluding = excellent. Stupid phone text and no edit option?

    I’m thinking that before the next season begins I’ll get to painting the wheels, I’m in no rush and I want to get on the bike.

    The color will be blue, both wheels
    this blue

    Great News! i’m one step closer to having Gosia ready to be legal :) Unfortunately I’ve been unable to work on the bike for a month, I had a nose operation and didn’t have enough strength to do anything.

    Gosia is up and running! Everything is good and dandy. I’m hoping to register the bike by the end of the month, and hopefully start riding.

    Bled the brakes, front is good. Started to bleed the rear and kept getting air, I finally found the problem, the banjo on the brake lines rusted and has a micro-hole which was catching air… which means the line needs to be replaced.

    Battery is dead, and seems to have gone bad. I bought it 14 mths ago, 2mths ago warranty ended :\ so a new battery needs to be purchased :\

    I found all the front fairing, for a good price :) all I’m missing now is the rear center, fender and one of the service windows… and some misc fillers (ones from turn signals, and mirrors.)
