OK I am going for the bolt first. Just have to find my tools to do this with. I guess I will be force to go to the dealer for the bolt. I've got the spring. Anyone know what they need to be torqued to?

Anyone know what oil to use in a 2006 GSX750F?

I tell you one day I was fine and then the next my world changed. I can't believe how hard and how much time it's taking to just get to where I am now.

I am definitely going to changed everything when it comes to the chain and sprockets with the good stuff. I've seen the aftermath of a chain exploding at speed. I have impact tools. Will that work instead?

That would be great if you could figure out what that is. I am also looking for the blinker module to see if that is what is causing the emergency blinkers to run. On a Harley it's no problem.

I've given up on Flickr. All the info is at least 4 years old so I am going to try google photos.

Well snap, that did not work.

Back to flicky

Snap Flicky did not work either. This is crazy. It use to be so easy.

Well that is the only way I can do it. I just thought it would be easier to just put the photo in instead of having to click on a link. Oh well.

Project Kats are fun until you end up with a Frankenstein

1995-750 Katana frame
1998-bandit 1200 engine
1989-gsxr high lift cams
2010-Yamaha R6 shock
2002-gsxf 750 rear rim(possibly)

Throw in a Dyna 2000 ignition system and a big bore 11:1 compression forged pistons from Wiseco.

Kat fever is real.

Congratulations on your new bike, you'll find a lot of awesome people and some good help here.

Can't say what the torque is for a post kat so, check the manual. If you don't have one download it from mechanics 101.

Looks to me (based on the connector and the rubber cover) that the cut wires are for the side stand switch.

http://katriders.com/vb/showthread.php?t=96846&page=2

That said the bike shouldn't start with them in that condition (I assume that they aren't touching each other) so I'm probably wrong....unless someone rigged a jumper in the connector somehow, or the wires are actually twisted together.

Tekgnome!! Update the build thread please!! Long time no see!

Cptn- no idea about the impact wrench. Let us know?
If you meant forced to go to the stealer to order the bolt, ronayers.com or bikebandit.com are generally much cheaper.

Will look at wiring to confirm skjeflo

Tekgnome Yep I'm finding out that they can bite.

skjeflo Not really worried about the cut wires yet. Just wondering what the block is behind them.

shpielers Hopefully I can get the screw out without using the impact but ordered the clutch basket from a stealer on eFlea. He clipped me on the shipping by about $20. It was supposed to be free shipping. He said he had nothing to do with it that PayPal did it. What a crook. He said he would refund the $30 I paid for the clutch basket minis restocking fee but not the shipping. Let me see, I should let him screw me both ways for shipping and oh yea, there is a restocking fee. Oh well lesson learned. I could have gone local to get that kind of service. It definitely would have been better to go to ronayers.com or bikebandit.com. Had a senior moment and forgot about those guys.
Well it will be all better soon.
For some reason I can't get the bike up on the center stand. A girl friend of my sisters came over and the two of us could not get it up on the stand. Maybe we weren't working together. I don't know, she's pretty strong, at least she's a lot stronger then I am. .. lol
Well it will be all better soon.... I hope.. I pray ... I beg... I'll figure out how to use the jack's I've got. Those pipes don't make it easy. I might just take them off. The whole bike needs cleaning desperately. Not looking to polish a turd though... but If I am ridding it, I want it to look like it wasn't just stolen .
Oh should I open a new thread somewhere about my rescued Kat?

Thanks everyone for the help.

Here's a couple of better pictures of what the wiring block looks like. I should have done a better job but my hand began to shake being bent over like that. Scary position to be in...

Then while I was looking around a bit, I saw this.

Ebay/paypal has recourse for the shipping issue. If the listing said free shipping, and he charged you... you can get them to refund it for you.

The center stand is simple once you know how. If you look under the tail fairings, there are grab rails. From the left side, left hand on the handle bar, right hand on the tail grab rail, right foot on the center stand. Stand up on/push down on the center stand and at the same time... pull up with your right hand using the grab bar under the tail fairing. It should life right up then.

The chain adjuster issue is common when someone relies on the adjuster to hold the wheel by not correctly tightening the axle down. The best fix I'd suggest is swap the adjuster plate with another model that uses a better design. The RF models are one example. They use aluminum caps that not only look better, but are shaped to not easily be pulled in.

That is exactly how I tried to do it after reading it on another thread and couldn't get it. I couldn't reach the handle bar, step on the center stand and lift the back end at the same time. I tried it with my left foot and with my right. That is why I tried to do it with a friend.
I should have been able to do it with two people. Like I said I've done it lots of times before on other bikes. I'm figuring it's just that I'm too weak.
What is a RF model?
Parts are starting to show up.
Thanks

Oh you mean a GSX-R model? As far as parts go that's the one I should have gotten. It seems that there is a pot load of them here in south Florida.
Wish I knew what parts fit what on my Katana from the GSX-R models.
Making some progress. Got more parts today.
Figured out that mystery wire box was the fuse box for the started and God knows what else. I will be cleaning it up for sure. Don't want to be stranded because of battery corrosion.
