Mulitangle valve job, degree the cams and put some huge flat slide carbs on it !
JK - put it together and ride it !
Right now everything is completed broken down, labeled, bagged, tagged, and boxed up in the garage. "Bike in a Box" is what I like to call it.
I've thought about getting into the motor but.................
1)Aftermarket and replacement parts are all but non-existant (unobtanium).
2)If I screw something up..................refer to #1.
These motors if maintained properly are known to be virtually bullet proof. So why mess with a good thing to get a few more horsepower. Max I have seen on VFR/RVF400 race bikes is 72 hp. I've got the race can and I'll rejet and rebuild the carbs which should yield a few (ie: 1-2) hp but I'll be aiming for a bike that runs smooth and clean throughout. Going to rebuild the forks with Race Tech valves and springs. Rear shock is not rebuildable but is great shape so I'll try that initially. Have rear ride height shims ready to go. Can't drop the front because of limited clearance issues. Rebuilding front and rear master cylinders, CRG levers, doing something with the rear sets.??? Already have Renthal front and rear sprockets, 520 conversion. Found EBC HH brake pads on Flea Bay. Stainless lines front and back. Need to strip, sand, and repair all the body panels before paint. Still dealing with the rusty tank issue. Trying KBS Coatings tank kit this weekend. Have all new hoses and clamps. Going to clean and re-tape the wiring harness. This bike is really simple in design, not much to it compared to modern bikes. The entire electrical system includes the following, basic wiring harness (lights, guages)battery, generator connection, starter relay, rectifier, CDI, and ignition coils. That's it. Fuel system is the same, tank, fuel line, breather line, carbs, throttle cables, choke cable. No other connections. Clutch is cable operated, lever, cable, and actuator. It's amazing how much more is on Fuel Injected bikes. It's going to take the next 2 months to prepare everything for re-assembly. Everything, and I mean everything, will be cleaned, inspected, repaired, re-finished, and stored until then. Trying to work on a logical order for re-assembly in my mind. But I want to have everything ready to go and then it shouldn;t take long. Goal is to hit the track in late September. Ok, now where was I.....................................
