    Rebuild top end of my GSXR1000 engine. Replace crank shaft in my ZX10. Body work and a paint job for my GSXR600.
    Limitations can only be learned by exceeding them.

    A working streetbike possibly for Danhor?? I'm speechless...

    My winter aspirations are currently cleaning up from a mudfest last weekend. Three helmets waxed yesterday and put on a clean shelf in garage. Both dirtbikes to come into the heat for an end of year spit shine, and possibly a long overdue teardown on my 40th birthday present (crated '01 CR250R)

    Ground through the side of the lower fairing on the trackbike, so need to do some glass work and see what happened there. Attached the lower mount down by the shock for my last track day and had a loading incident that moved it to the right I think...

    The RD/Bandit project wants to come to the forefront (it's taking valuable heated space for now), but the wifey wants some drywall mud smeared around and ultimately painted too...

    My updates are limited this year to fixing crash damage from October Barber event. A lot of you are aware of it from FB but I had a pretty good one then, still recovering physically but have the bike mostly fixed, at least it's ready for paint for next year.

    Subframe was toast along with exhaust canister:

    Here is some video of the crash one of my buddies who was behind me got. I was working the Intermediate group and had an old set of street tires on that were about shot. I just had a brain fart and overrode the tires, paid the price.

    Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous. It is, however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence, or stupidity

    Step #1 of winter maintenance complete.

    The hole i somehow got in the back of the radiator down at the gap is fixed.

    Step #2 is going to be ripping the forks off.

    Im also exhaust shopping but like EVERYTHING else nothing is easy on this bike.

    What year is the kx250f for sale?

    So I couldn't make my BST's work from my 2012 r1 without a bunch of work, so I picked up some new ones for the new bike! Cant wait to get them on...
