Thread: NZ Pop Up

  1. #11
    Hi riffer i'm sorry to hear about your accident.

    It's worth spending money keeping these bikes to keep them on the road in my opinion. Are you using any particular colour for your gold parts?

    I might pull my engine down for a long term build at some stage, first I need to get my baby Kat back on the road

    I don't really have any recent photos of my bike but i'll attach something.

    Replaced
    -Hel clutch hose
    -New cycleworks 4 into 1
    -New OEM fuel tap and fuel cap
    -New accelerator cable
    -Reproduction black plate
    -Replaced clutch sleeve, hub nut and washers
    -New starter clutch rollers and gasket
    -Replacement front screen
    -Replacement tail and dash plastic
    -Second hand r/side plastic to replace trashed
    original
    -Carbs stripped and cleaned. Replace float valves
    -Replacement headlight cover and dash plastic to replace those pictured

    So was all this work done before you got it? What did you end up paying for it? Where in NZ are you? Cheers and Im not a policeman, just wondering.

    Hi Murray

    Not sure why I would think you're a policeman...

    I purchased the bike last year for $2500 and rode the three hour trip North. Once home I was looking at it thinking shit this is rough as guts. The fuel cap was broken and painted over the dash plastics all broken.
    Replaced the clutch bits pulled the lever and the hose split, new rollers in starter etc. It still has a clutch rattle due to carbs needing synced.
    Im not going to bother balancing the carbs, i'm just going to get flatslides.

    Accidents and motorcycles seem to go together eh? Such is life.

    I'm using VHT SP736 for the gold. Cool paint, but damn, I've had three cans and they have all been different. Either my luck is shit, or their quality control is.

    Urgh. Flat slides? You sure that's not more work? My damn Vertemati dirt bike only has one flat slide (FCR39) and that's a right pain in the arse.
    Hey Murray - I'm in Upper Hutt mate.

    Cheers

    My airbox seems to be on the piss too so brand new flatslides will be the go i think.
    I was watching Andy's motorcycle Obsessions on youtube and I seem to have the same problem as he did wth his basket case yammy. No matter what I do the thing overflows, he ended up just fitting slatslides.

    Just had some work done on 900 Superlight with FCRs fitted. The fuel was passing through the carbs and had filled my sump!
    Bit beyond me so got a great mechnica contact to sort them out. Runs sweet as now! He is self employed and works from home mostly in the North of Auckland / Rodney region.

    I used Duplicolor 1604 for the gold. Frame, valve cover, engine covers, brakes. All the gold. This paint has worked very well and a 99.9% colour match.
