yeah he had the vfr750 swingarm with a vfr800 wheel. if i can figure a way to get the scratch together in the next 5 days(cough... solo cowl sale...cough) I'll add it to the project list if this falls through its probably going to be Krey's swingarm mod.

I agree but hey, mine are just there because it is the law. I always look behind me and have been used to not using mirrors to do so!

pics as promised.





As i was taking the front fender off i noticed the oil cooler resting against the forks. apparently the mounts broke off there tabs









Then I get to unbolting the cross bar and i look down and find this





I did find another 1127 engine for sale with 17k miles on it from a 89 Kat 1100. It's located in Vermont so it will be a haul to get it but the deal could not be passed at $300. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...d=157419878023

yeah after seeing the wire like that I'm thinking the wire started to come loose and it gradually lost spark until it came completely loose and started to run only on 3 cylinders. if this ends up being the case i'll more then likely have an extra 1127 with carbs for sale unless a deal with thazkat can be worked out.

There is a good possibility that I could be doing a 1127 swap for KatBusa!

So the spark plug boot is all it was? Glad it wasn't worse! Blown engines suck...
