    Lapp them valves!!!

    Pardon my filthy clothes, but it's always a dirty job in the garage.
    Lapping the valves using a tap wrench, spinning the valve on one side,


    lightly pushing in the valve on the other:

      Looking good. I was about to say that I've only ever used one of those wooden handled suction cup things, which slides off the valve, and you end up spending half the time just getting that tool seated again. I see that tool in one of those pics. LOL

        I watched a guy use one on car valves, but these bike valves are so small, the suction cups had no leverage, and would just slide and spin, not enough grip to spin the valve.
        I got the tap wrench idea from http://www.dansmc.com/indexindex.htm good old school tips.

          Changing the tail…

          Ok, just received a 93 Yoshumura superbike tail.
          Will work it so I can swap the stock tail for street riding, and Yoshi tail for track days.
          This is the 1st fitting


          Last spring I installed a 93 gsxr 750 rear frame, as you can see.

            Ah, so you are going to be doing street riding. Go ahead and throw that 6 speed GSXR gear box in there while your at it. I'm sure they're only $1000

                But thats what track bikes are for... "Racing Development"
                No seriously, I'm not going to bug you too much more about it. But, if you've got that old 750 motor just laying around, could be worth trying.
