I still have that wire for you if you need it, I'm not sure exactly what I'm doing on Sunday, so I'm not sure if I can make it but feel free to swing by and grab the wire if you need it

The FZR lives!

I spent time this morning reviving the beast after a power outage (yes, this one too). Turns out that I blew the main 30A fuse while finishing up my voltage regulator job in the dark. I went back over all of the work and we are running within specification; about 14V to the battery instead of 18-22V.

I'll have Anders take a peek but this fix will allow us the opportunity to focus mostly on the F bike.

John, no big deal on the wires at this point. The stock harness was longer than anticipated so I used that to finish the job cleanly. If you don't want the wires for your own stock, I'll take them for mine but no hurry at all. Hope you're feeling better.

Treeve, it has been too long buddy. Hope to see you soon.

Excellent! Make yourself a cup of joe and eat an ice cream. If it works for Anders, who knows what problems you will solve next!!

Good news Alex! Best time to ride is now! I was out this morning and could have kept on going....

About Sunday morning- i cant make it at that time anymore but will be around late afternoon (after 3.30pm) if you guys are still at it...i doubt you will be but just in case. Good luck in any case! Let me know if you need anything from my garage.

cheers

And the 750 lives!!

Anders rolled into town just a touch past 9AM with the obligatory greeting of, "I better not have come all this way for nothing". Well he fixed my electrical problem within the first half hour and looked at me inquisitively for the next task. The electrical gremlin turned out to be a burnt up ignition switch and some cruddy fuse connections. I swapped switches and am tasked with cleaning the fuse box as well as some of the other components corroding over the years.

In addition to the electrical, we rerouted the brake lines and I learned where the copper washers were supposed to be placed. A good laugh was had on my expense and as Treeve and Peter arrived the comedy continued as expected. The bike was having a heck of a time turning over and sparking the cylinders so off came the points cover. Anders immediately honed into the lack of grease and nonexistent points gap. Laughing ensued as he swore and cursed the poor maintenance on my end. I stand by my excuse of just riding the bike this season but I should have checked that stuff as routine.

We got everything running and I took it for a quick spin to get new gas and try to purge what Anders thinks is some water in the carbs. I'm not sure how that could've happened but my gas can has been outside, under the porch and likely leaked. My hope is to get on it tomorrow at some point and try to clear it out. I was chastised for neglecting the F in lieu if the FZR and I cannot argue so I'll be making it a point to balance my time Smiley .

Just picked up a new points assembly so that I can actually feel some of the 750 power. The whole NOS assembly from JT Marks ended up being $10 more than a pair of OEM points and condensers.

Now for some proper throttle cables as both have seen their limits. Andy, I'll hopefully grab that push off of you soon!
