Holee cow shepa, you certainly make us look like lazy idiots.
Cool.

I've followed this whole post and thats exactly what I kept thinking, in the time it took me to figure out and place my Petcock and a few wiring and electronic items on my Street Fighter project, this Hurricane stuffed a CBR engine into a GS and made it look damn nice, Does anyone have any High Grade Coke so I can up my output levels....

Nice work man, truley nice work.

Can I get moved to the project section?
 
And all the noteworthiness is to Shepa on this build since he smoked my a** in finishing it first.  Ok, much respect to Tesla, but still.:bowdown:  And as soon as I get my bars in from xunedeinx  I'm going to get back on track.

The top case?
It's a Givi, although I forgot the exact model (some old 30-ish liter model).
It comes off the mount (Givi Monorack for GS500) in a second, just turn the key and press the lower button (the upper is for case opening).

Got them in today xunedeinx!  Thanks again!  Amazing the difference in position.  Haven't done anything, just eyeballed it. 

Today figured I really needed to swap my oil pan.  My old one has a slight leak from a small hole.

Okay it really has a hole the size and shape of Idaho in it!  In order for me to mount the headers and get on with it I need to fix this so got to it today.  Didn't finish but felt good getting back on the GS!

Today finished my oil pan install, then started on wiring.  Went pretty well.  Test routed the harness up to the front and then figured I'd swap to the clip ons and see how the wiring would fit.  Was good to get back into it after all the time I spent disassembling my old van.  I seem to have lost my fiberglass air box that I started so I'm going to pick up an F2 lower air box and then go from there instead of making my own lower piece.  I really like the clipons.  Thanks xunedeinx!!!!

Going to get on it this weekend,...picked up an F2 airbox off ebay, and I'm really hoping it comes in today so I can sew up my airbox pita this weekend.

,...Air box didn't make it in so I got back on wiring.  Put on the coils, figured out where they would mount best, did plugs and wires then worked on the clipons, put on the controls and grips: need some decent bar ends.  Rerouted some wiring, trying to get the components mounted right and save a nice spot for battery.  Pulled off rear tire and mounted the new sprocket and stuck new sprocket on the front, wrapped my clean new chain around and called it a day.  Tomorrow will cut to fit and get it lined up, more wiring and maybe start figuring out my undertail idea.



Thanks for pointing that out xune! :icon_lol: Didn't get as much done today (Sunday) as I wanted.  Finished up the chain and had to pack up.  Little disappointing cause I wanted to sit out there all day, but one step at at time is better than no step at a time.

Finally got my airbox!  Funny how getting a part in will make the day better!
Planning on using this bottom piece of the airbox to mount to the carbs, figure out a lid/filter or seal the top and add on some pods or other configuration.  I'll have to see how much room I have and what I have to work with.  This has been a big stumbling block for me, so I'm hoping this'll help get things moving again.

Go to the local wally work, see if any panal filters are approx. close... then glass up the edges and make it work. when its done slap in a k&n high flow for whatever model panal filter you used, and have fun!

Messing around with airbox this afternoon and the small base, which still wouldn't fit under the tank.  I didn't want to cut the base.  I was hoping it would fit and I could seal the top and use a pod off of the base or a flat filter on top like Xune suggested above.  Of course it wouldn't fit.  So being peeved and frustrated with this airbox pita I grabbed my die grinder and now the whole airbox will fit just fine.  Someone else was talking about this idea awhile back and I thought I might try it and see how it works out.

no fit


In case you ever wanted to see the inside of the tank,...

would love to weld that maw up where the airbox could fit too,...




Not my first choice of how I wanted this to go but using the tank as a cover and figuring out an auxillary tank set up might work.  Tank was really clean inside.  Oh well.  If I was an ace welder I might try to weld it back up but I'd probably ruin it.  The airbox in the pic isn't the one that I'll use, just an old cracked shell.  Didn't get to do much else except this today.
