I've made a fair amount of progress. Here is a picture from last night. Hopefully tonight I'll get the rear wheel and suspension done.

So much for that... I went ahead and ordered some parts. I got: Brake shoes and brake pads. New dust covers for the forks. New clubman handlebars. New grips and throttle. Total was about $150 w/ shipping. It turned out that I didn't need a sandblaster. Advance Auto has a heavy duty paint remover, I ...

Well, it looks like my plans may be getting set back. My car apparently needs about $1300 worth of work done. I don't even know how I'm going to pay for that, much less where I'll find extra money to buy parts for the bike. So, I'm going to try and do as much as possible without actually purchasing ...

So, family friend does not have a sand blaster. But he has some other tool that should apparently do that the job. I'm not sure exactly what this tool is, because my dad was explaining it over the phone, from a description given to him from family friend. Sooooo, it's up in the air whether that will...

I can't stand trikes in general, but I love the Spyder. There is a car dealership on my way to work that always has one sitting out front.

The whole ugly bike article was pretty funny. Buuuuut, the author is a moron. He has a serious vendetta against sport bikes. See: http://hubpages.com/hub/Ban-Hayabusa--CBR--ZX--YZF--etc-From-Roads-Now He wants sport bikes banned. His argument is that more people are killed on (or by) sport bikes tha...

Cool, I'll try that when I get home.

I have a family friend who owns a body shop, so I'll ask him about the sandblaster. Thanks for the tips!

Thanks for the tips guys! I was able to get them off using a method similar to what Big B described. I just took a drill bit that was just a tad more narrow than the screw, and drilled out the head. As soon as I started drilling past the head, and into the screw itself, I was able to tap off the hea...

So, I've run into two complications: A) the steering tree thing won't come off completely. Why? Because I need a c spanner, which I don't have. And apparently neither does anyone else in the state of Georgia. The only place I can find that carries them around here is Sears. So, I've got to find time...

More updates: Sold the ZR-7 in September '08. I needed a car and had to sell the bike and put the money towards that. Then, yesterday, I bought an '80 Suzuki GS450. It's a lot like my old Nighthawk. Buuuut, I plan on completely rebuilding and restoring the bike. I plan on doing it cafe racer style (...

That sucks man, sorry to hear. I was just reading in another thread about your new bike, and then I read this one and learn it's already wrecked! That really sucks. Good thing you weren't hurt more though.

I wouldn't recommend it, and I'm someone who thinks SV650 are doable for beginners. SV650s put out 65 HP (maybe not the new ones, but my friend's '99 does). That's a lot less than 85. 20 hp on a bike goes a long, long way.

The 7 is naked and the 7S has plastic. As for the front end diving, the most common solution for that is to swap in stiffer fork springs. Yep, the 7s has fairings around the headlight. The nose dive when braking is going to be harder to fix. Like I said, no aftermarket parts really. Evidently some ...

Very nice! I love how it looks. But after maintaining shamefully high speeds on the highway, I've decided my next bike most definitely needs fairings. I love how bikes look naked, but the wind is just terrible at high speed.

I just bought a 2000 ZR-7 (not an s), with 13k in perfect condition for 3600 (after dealer fees, taxes, etc.). I think I overpayed a little, but it was worth it for such an awesome bike, and the piece of mind that the dealer ran full service on it before I picked it up. Be aware of a couple things o...

Take an MSF Course to help yourself get acclimated to riding before you learn anymore bad habits. 90% of people involved in motorcycle accidents are taught by friends or family members. Only 10% of people are professionally trained. Not to be a jerk, because I completely agree with you that an MSF ...
