    As for the sprocket cover it's there more to keep your foot from entering the sprocket, give some support to the shift lever rod as well as being a protective cover for the neutral sensor. Feel free to grind away the bits you don't need as we normally do that anyways when we do the 17 tooth upgrade.

    Well I was expecting a SV650S upper...what I got is a race upper styled after the K1 GSXR's. It's alright, though...I kind of like the look.

    So do I stack the headlights like originally planned, or do I utilize the "ram air" duct openings? I'm kind of leaning toward the latter. I don't know how I'll make adjusters that are easy to use that way though...

    Modified the ZR7 stay to work with the SV fairing today. It's not 100% what I was expecting, but I'm pretty pleased with the results.

    I don't think I'll be able to make the headlights work through the "ram air" scoops, though...the lenses are too big. They cut through nearly a third of the lens area. Going to have to do the center stack.

    Ever feel like maybe you missed a step when you reassembled your forks?

    I can't find the thread with the mystery pin...

    But a question about it...Does the pin move when you shift to Neutral? I thought maybe it popped out and hit something to apply the neutral light?

    When you added the mount for the rear shock, how did you do this, or did you try to match the leverage ratio of the gsxr when you built it?

    I like headlight option 2. I'll bet it throws a better pattern at night as well?

    It doesn't move as best I can tell. The neutral indicator is a sensor closer to the sprocket.

    With the rear shock I essentially mimicked the GSXR600 geometry as closely as possible. The stock ZR7 mount didn't allow me to make it identical without chopping up the frame more than I cared to. Basically I got very close to the GSXR geometry, and then I made the upper mount long enough to move the shock to where the forks are sitting at a 25* rake...the GSXR rake is 23.5* and I wanted to be close to that but I was afraid of maybe overshooting it.

    Not much of an update...got the screen setup properly and I braced the fairing stay pretty heavily. The stock ZR stay is a pretty lightweight piece since the fairings also bolted to the frame. I wanted it all strapped to the stay...a piece of 1" box and some small braces made it pretty rigid.



    But I did get some recycling taken care of...

    No way is the black bike your bike???? WOW...Thats come a long way, and looks great.

    I cant imagine growing up on land like that. Looks like a kid could ride a dirt bike in any direction and not get in trouble.

    All the open land is gone where im at.

    Same bike...it's pretty easy to do when you have all the stuff! I have to get the headlights sorted, a speedometer (the universal one was broken, replacement on the way), tail light installed, and then some small odds and ends and then she's golden.

    I also still have to build another one to sell and pay for this one lol.

    We recently moved out here from inside the city. It's only three acres I got but it's plenty for playing around on and shooting occasionally...only have neighbors to either side, nothing behind. A lot of the fields are plowed and planted, but there's some playa land around us and some FM roads...stuff we can play on. I don't really do dirtbikes (I'm not mature enough), so I play around with this thing:

    What's new? This ****ing thing...



    Looks like ****. It was a huge ordeal of cut here, weld there, measure again, adjust, and so on. Next winter I plan to essentially cut the whole thing from scratch using the mount points of this one as a template. I bet I can shave 10lbs off it if I do it right.

    I forgot to get a picture before I slapped the fairing on, but it looks much better at least all painted. Luckily the thing is 90% hidden. I'll also be making a fascia to cover everything except the clocks so I don't get glare off the lights.



    Quick walk around...









    I was concerned that the lights wouldn't be visible enough through the intake ducts...but it worked out pretty well.



    I wired the low beam to come on with the key ignition (bypasses Kawasaki's headlight module). High beam is operated via the switch. This means both lights can be on with the high beam.



    Low beam has a very nice cutoff for how much light is there.



    ****ing high beam is unbearable.



    Low beam:



    High beam:



    In case you're curious what a ZR7 sounds like with an eBay car muffler...



    Lastly...I HIGHLY recommend these bulbs. I was skeptical...very skeptical...but they are awesome. I'm running them in the projectors from a 2nd gen Bandit 1200S.

    It's this one.

    I cut the pipe off just before the muffler flange and the the car muffler slips right over it very snugly. I'm going to put a small slot on the underside of the muffler and use a band clamp to secure it to the pipe a little more firmly, and then a proper hanger.
