Score!!! Lookin forward to seeing your progress!05/14/13 at 12:01 pm #33139
Another hold up in Shakira’s restoration….. I painted her case covers with high temp paint, but I wasn’t impressed with the the results. So back to the powder coater’s for some more work….. I did get the swing arm back on and the exhaust reinstalled. Should have the radiator hooked up this evening, but can’t fire her up till those covers get back.05/14/13 at 1:00 pm #33141
@DubV, it totally sucks that you lost a motor due to an oversight, but then again, losing a motor for any reason is no bueno… anyway, I hope the new motor you picked up is going to work out!

The rest of my goodies from the powder coaters. Tomorrow I finish putting her back together.
05/23/13 at 8:18 pm #33498
So when are we gonna find out how she runs?05/23/13 at 9:06 pm #33499
SOON! Hopefully I can get her fired up tomorrow. I’ve only got a few things to button up, but with resent events I just haven’t had time to get to her.
My plan Tuesday was to have everything ready to go so when the case covers got back all I had to do was put them on and start her up…05/23/13 at 9:47 pm #33504
No doubt .. I figured woth everuthing going on that was not a priority thats a given. Now that dagan is ok I assumed u woukd be right back to it.05/24/13 at 10:41 pm #33543
So today I got the 12 o’clock labs speedodrd installed, the radiator on and hooked up, and the rear tire back on. I had one of the case covers back on… and realized it’s a different color black. All of my first run of powder coating was done in matt black. Apparently the second run was done in semi gloss. Not too big of a deal…. but I’m a bit of a perfectionist. So to me it looked like shit!
PISSED would be an understatement! So instead of firing her up tonight I’m stuck waiting till Monday. I assure you I will be sitting at his front door waiting for him to arrive!
On a side note here’s a sneak peek for ya’ll

Woot woot looking sharp06/01/13 at 12:02 am #33750
Ladies & Gentlemen may I introduce you to the new and improved Shakira… With her rebirth I have decided to change her name. She will now be known as ShakiRRa. Why you may ask? Because 2 R’s are better than 1!
Here is a quick video of the first attempt to start her.
This build has been problem after problem after pain in the ASS! I was soooo surprised when she fired right up!
I want to give a BIG thanks to @02gtfl for sending me a copy of a shop manual without it there’s no way I could have done this! So thanks again Rich! Also my Dad… This man was with me for late hours and a few beers. With out his vast tool collection I would have been screwed! And last ALL the RideCBR members who took interest in the rebuild of my bike.
There will be pic of progress and finished product in a few.
LOOK AT THAT SHINE!!! this is after the @AMPP Motosuds and the Motobuff. I haven’t used the Motoquik yet!
