So haven't made any progress until today...thanks to the military and physically beat to death all the time. But same reliable friend made an appearance and we made huge progress. This is from noon till about 8 at which I made him and my wife steaks and grilled corn with a side of whiskey. She should be ready to feed fuel in by the end of the month. Need to put some evaporust in the tank again as the high humidity and spiders decided to ruin my first attempt. FYI, that crap is amazing, if you need rust broke up, buy the Walmart evaprust....great stuff. Anyways, also bought redcoat liner for after. Once I'm done with that and get that front fairing painted she will be complete again. Speaking of paint.....my "professional" rattle can job already isn't holding up well so in due time they will be removed and redone by a friend whom has professional experience and tools to repaint. It looked great when I first painted it (good prep, primer, three matt coats, 2 high gloss clear coats) but with the extremely tropical (Virginia beach hah) humidity took its toll. Anyways was a bit worried about the ebc clutch plates due to how tight they were fitting into the basket but it seems to be working well now that I was able to put her in gear. Little worried about the circlip on said basket as well, as one edge didn't seem to seat quite right hah.....guess we will find out. Worst case new fiction plates, oil, gasket and circlip. This bike has been built purely off whisky scotch and badass so fist ride should be fun. Torn apart and put together in the same perfect state lol. I will attach a video after the first start. I didn't prep the bowl so I'm not gonna start the video when I first start kicking.......after 20-30 min I think people will get bored. Anyways.....enjoy the pics. Also on a Daytona subject, just past 8k amazing reliable miles. in 2k miles there will be a plethora of amazing aftermarket / race parts being installed....stay tuned for that one. After 10k ms Daytona will be a dedicated track bike :), cant wait! Setting her up for next spring season soon.
