PMC parts are great. I have a connection in Japan. Rick Degan, runs a Business there. And in California with his brother. He was getting me cool parts 10 years ago. Before anyone in the USA saw them. Rick actually married his Japanese language teacher from Buffalo State College. 20 yrs. ago. Then moved to Japan now. He can't wait to retire and come back to the USA. But, whatever. We had some good deals over the years! Shipping parts International!

Have some time and did some long overdue maintenance on my project bike today.
Drain the oil and pull the oil pan and oil pump for a in-depth cleaning.





Remove the oil pump screen to remove gasket residues



Everything clean now and ready to go back into the engine

After a long try and error puzzling to get an accurate rev signal and a steady needle (DYNA III), i am very happy with my KOSO RX2N+ GP

kzrider.com/forum/4-electrical/607690-de...hometer?limitstart=0

I pay 210 EURO on evil-bay for myKOSO RX2N+ GP
You can get the  KOSO RX2N+ GP three rpm versions.
0 to 10000 rpm /  0 to 16000 rpm / 0 to 20000 rpm 

A cheap Chinese copy of the  KOSO RX2N+ GP called SS182 was sold on amazon/aliexpress/ alibaba sometimes for 45 Euros but no thanks.

To refresh my bike build threat here some facts and paper work of my technical inspection/homologation and the technical report.
The testing engineer was impressed about the driving and cornering abilities of my bike! He said he never think about it and have driven an old modified bike like this!!!He took an 30 minutes test drive with all possible driving conditions with a full safety clothing on a +37 Celsius afternoon.I thought after 15 minutes he wrecked my bike/engine, (high speed highway was 200 meters away).
But to complete my technical inspection for street legal use i need an anti theft steering look. He made a 16 page report with pics of the ZX9R parts for the data base and say i have to come back with a steering lock to confirm my build steet legal for free of cost. It cost me 290 Euros for the 2 hour paperwork and test drive but i am happy with the result. A steering lock, a small step for me, a big step to go on the road street legal,hahahahaha!!!
Pics will follow....

Some little news to my project bike.
I could not resist and have to buy some parts for the long winter evenings.
Bought a mono swing arm/Susuki motor frame conversion kit,Kawasaki frame bracing kit and a gsxr 1100 Motor for 250 Euro from Z-Fever.de.
Does anyone know if it is worth to do a engine swap like this???
I need some opinions.

Thats pretty cool and a great deal. the oil cooled GSXRs are well engineered engines. With some small mods the 1100 will make a real 140hp to the wheel! I imagine the biggest problem you will run into is how the flexible KZ frame deals with that huge increase in power. Frame brace kit is a good start but i would personally would go overboard and add extra bracing. Also, if possible, oversize the engine mounting bolts to tie it all together.

The chain guard is not my work, and the "z K z" is the manufacturer logo of the excentric swing arm.

I was very diligent today.
My heard was bleeding but have to do the final cut off to the hangers for the 4 in 4 and rear break pedal.
I need the space for the new GSX-R 1100 WP/WR (93-94) i have shot for 175 Euro on e-bay privat sells with all
suspention parts, wheel axis, swing arm pivot, chain gard, rear brake caliper with new brake pads.
The swing arm is 600 mm long, (eye to eye) and 60 - 80 mm longer as my excentric swing arm.
The swingarm to frame width is 232 mm and is plug and play to the frame. Only the swing arm chain rubber buffer
need some some cuts. My rear wheel with sprocket hub, rear caiper hub and all spacers fits a little tight in .
My old swing arm opening width is 250 mm and i have to remove 0,50 mm on right side spacer to get an easy wheel in and out.
Wheel is in the middle and sprokets/chain alignments looks perfect. Need a longer 630 chain with 6 extra links.
Don´t want to do a 530 chain conversion now, all sprockets are like new.
So far so good here are the pics.




........and three beers later






more coming soon

Cool upgrade :)
Will it increase performance/handling, or just look cool and give you a new challange?

Have to pull the needle bearings to mill the suspention linkage to the spacing of the mainstand mount brackets.
It was very difficult, i need a lot ot pressure, heat and the right bearing puller to get them out.




Had to mill 10 mm on both sides.



Made some brass tube sleeves for the Z1 16 mm OD swing arm pivot to press and glue into the 20 mm ID GSXR needle bearing tubes.



and have to shorten the stainless steel foot rest bolts to not to collide with my GSXR swing arm.



more to come later this week.....
