Cosmetic Mayhem, mechanical bliss...

I'm the new owner of this ugly puppy. Picture is after loading it on the trailer at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky Saturday.


It's a 1996 CBR600. Except for a blown right front fork seal the bike is in great mechanical shape. Cosmetic mess.





After stripdown, two rounds of engine degreaser, three rounds of simple green, and one wash job it now looks like this:



The bike has to weigh at least 15 pounds less with the loss of all the dirt, bugs and grease. I think it was last washed in 1997.

The side fairings, engine covers and front fender are in the trash. It did get a fresh oil filter and oil change after the pic.

I have plans. Long, slow developing plans.

What type of plans? Track bike, streetfighter treatment, turn it back into the ugly pup it once was? How much did you pick it up for? I would like to find a beat up bike for cheap to setup for track. I have always wanted to do a track day, but don't want to risk my daily rider.

BTW....Looks MUCH better without the purple fishgills, IMO.

I like it, especially since I don't have to do the work. The f3 was a nice little street bike. All day comfy.

Sooo much potential there.

Maybe just put the seat and tailpiece back on. Put little dual headlights on front. Throw a bucket of yellow paint at it and ride the wheels off of it.

Not a track bike, not a stunt bike, not a resto. Past that, it's open season. I don't have to be in a hurry. I've got plenty of other stuff to ride.

I'm not going to do a whole lot until I get the title transferred. Hopefully Wednesday. Then the fun begins.

So that leaves us a blinged out pimp ride and offroad weapon to choose from. I wanna see lotsa chrome flying over that triple and the spinners going like mad in the whoops section.

Called Monday and asked what I needed to transfer an out of state title. Although I had already done my homework as far as title signed and a Ky Transfer form filled out and stamped by a notary, I mainly wanted to know about the inspection. "No problem, they will check the VIN and the odo reading to make sure they match." Okay, all that's good to go.

Fast forward to this morning. I'd already taken the battery out, hung the key on the workbench, pulled the nosepiece which contains the light and turn signals. Anyway, at 9:30 AM it goes like this:

Hi, I want to get a title transferred.

"Okay, go over to the other office. They transfer there."

shuffle...shuffle... Hi, I want to get a title transferred.
"You need to have them inspect it first at the office you just came from."

shuffle...shuffle....The lady over there said you need to inspect it first.
"Oh, that's right. Yesterday was election day and I'm real tired. Now just ride the bike around to inspection parking."

It's on a trailer.

"Then it has to be able to start. Will it start?"

No, the lady Monday said all you need to do is check VIN and odo.

"No, it has to be just as it is intended to ride on the street."

I've got no battery, no key, no light or signals.

"Let me get the sheriff's deputy."

Dep - "What you need?"

I go through the whole story again. He says let's take a look. We walk out to the truck and he's real quiet. Then he says "I used to have one of these. Blah, blah, blah."

15 minutes pass. I hear about every bike he's ever owned, where he's ridden, how he just bought a new GoldWing, etc.

The title is transferred. He never even looked at the VIN or the odo.

I love it.... good story!

I had a 97 F3 and was a realyl nice ride. I had that thing dialed in nicely... my last carb'd bike! Red/Black.and white... sexy thing. Ran like a clock...

What are the plans... or are you still contemplating?

My vote is for some new sprockets and a chain.. track body work, new rims and suspension... sticky slicks, and ride the ba-jesus out of it at the track!

I LOVE Tig Bitties!

I had a 97 F3 and was a really nice ride. I had that thing shortened about 8 inches so that I could just BARELY touch the ground, the suspension was dialed in nicely even after they had to cut the springs down to about the size of a ball point pen.... my last carb'd bike, as now the only carbs I get are from the beer on poker night. Red/Black.and white I like my women any color size, even sex changes... sexy things. Ran like a clock...since I no longer have a bike I only have wet dreams of having one....oh well I'll stick to riding fat Wisconsin chicks for now.

Fixed it for ya

Yup....:09's
On a piece o' junk F3!!!

The East course ain't about much more than "riding through"....riding through all those bumps and riding through whatever semblance of a set-up you have.

I used to go pretty damned good there dude

Going fast is way more about the rider than what it is about the bike.

I good lap time is not about who went the fastest, but who slowed down the least. An F3 with a good rider is nothing to be taken lightly. Also, some times a bike and rider just click.

I believe him.

Bike is now minus the front brakes and dash. Down to the frame and motor.

Micron system is cleaned up. Came out pretty nice.
Sliders are off.
Motor/frame is cleaned up. I swear I dropped another 5 lbs. of dirt/grease/grime off the thing.
Probably pull the valve cover this weekend and adjust the valves, replace plugs, etc.

I haven't looked yet to see if this thing has the same valve adjusters as the Hurricane. If so I may need your pretty little valve tool.

Our original 600 Hurricanes were the last of the screw type adjusters. Your 96' is shim under. When it is time to check the Hurricane you are more than welcome to borrow the Honda tool.

Not much has changed from the picture. The valves checked out within spec. One exhaust valve was .001" tight, but within spec. Had something that has never happened before, and probably never will again. I pulled the plug on the side of the motor to rotate the crank, and low and behold the "T" mark and cam index marks were lined up perfectly for the first set of valves to be checked.


Changed the plugs. I don't think Autolite plugs were original equipment. Got some nice NGKs in there now.

Most everything is stripped down and has been cleaned. I've thrown away one pair of clothes, and the second will stand up on their own. Still have to strip the wheels, tank and disassemble the forks. I'm starting to seperate stuff into piles of paint order. Pictures don't do justice as to how filthy this thing was. There are pieces I thought were painted black, only to discover they just hadn't been cleaned since leaving Japan.

$392 parts order picked up at the dealer yesterday. FYI, $392 worth of parts can be carried out to your truck in one plastic bag.

The odds must be a million to one. I all my years that sounds like a 1st.
