Okay, all wired up. I ran the wires into two and increased the guage a little on the primary leads where they'll connect to the power and ground.




You can see the blinders doing their job.

I like the style of the top triple clamp on the first Busa because it hides the nut. It took me a while to find another clamp with the same style but I finally got it, thanks to Amazon. This should be the last major aftermarket part I'll need :lol:

Polished frame

Got the frame all polished up this Friday. Have to round up the nuts and bolts to put the motor in the frame then attach the suspension pieces.

Got a couple of caps for the top of the forks to go with the top clamp.  Got to coordinate!  Picked these up from Ball Z Motorsports on ebay.


Got everything polished except for the wheels.  I'll get to those soon, working on my buddy's GSXR 750/600 frame issue...

Got the frame on the motor.  They're back together again :wink: I'll be putting the suspension on it next.

I gave in to the dark side and bought this 2006 Yamaha Raptor 700R a few weeks ago :bike:  I upgraded the stock front shocks to fully adjustable gas shocks, tinted the headlights, put handguards on, and installed a power tip on the muffler. Later on I might get ignorant and stuff a Busa motor in it :twisted:

Got a little more done, still have to do the wheels.  I've got a Viper alarm on the way I'll be linking with the air-ride just as I did with the last Busa.  Adding some different features this time; dual zone perimeter sensor and motion/tilt sensor. Right now; I'm putting the controls together, doing some of the wiring, then installing the air-ride components.  The new grips and bar-end mirrors will be last.  The new resevoir caps will go on after my new braided steel brake lines come in.




Dash panel with air-ride controls and Power Commander USB connector.  Lowering spools installed too but fork caps will go on after fork adjustment.

Okay. About half way done :|  I found that the easiest way to send power to the rear is by connecting a positive lead from the solenoid to a disribution box in or near the trunk.  A ground lead is connected to the engine breather cover and run to a negative distro block.  This way, there aren't a bunch of wires being run to the battery.  I'm sure there are a half dozen other ways to spread power around on a bike but this is just what I did. 


I've got the alarm sitting where it will be permanently mounted and I'm running all the wires that will connect it to the various sensors from front to rear. To the right of the alarm is the cut-out for the fuse box that will be going in.

The door lock/unlock signal from the alarm is a negative pulse I had to convert to a positive signal with the two relays mounted towards the rear.  The relays trigger a set of up and down time-delay relays for controlling the air-ride lift and lower times.  The bike will raise when the alarm is disarmed and lower when armed.

This is part of the idea I've got to eliminate the excess slack in the chain when the bike is lifted.  It's a chain tensioner that came with a roller but I have to switch the roller with a gear and fab it all together, somehow...

Well, got all the sensors installed: The 508D, 507M, and 516L.  Just have to finish wiring them all together and then wire up the starter kill and remote start. Yay :|

Polishing wheels
« Reply #37 on: July 22, 2012, 12:41:03 AM »
Been busy but have to get the wheels done so I can roll the bike onto the trailer for the move to Florida where it will sit in storage until I find a place to live there :cry:

Thanks! Glad you like it :D It might be a while before I get the body work on, unfortunately. I'll be working on the bodywork a little bit before I put it in storage.

Finished polishing front wheel lips, have to prep it for the paint next. The inner part and spokes will be painted red and clear coated.

Started on the back wheel last night, had to strip the old paint off and go over it with 180 grit compound. It'll be shined up like the front wheel then painted.


To stay within my budget I'm rattle canning it! The clearcoat I'll be using is a 2-part, just like the kind you would mix and use in a regular spray gun. According to the manufacturer, this clearcoat is tough enough to stand up to gasoline so you can use this over most paints with no issues.  This is the website I used for the clearcoat:

I bought the primer from this website (cheaper :tu:) http://www.kolorhouse.com/ususchsp2kep.html

  It's been a busy day!!  Finished the wheels, got the tank fixed and primed, and gutted the calipers for the bead blaster. All this got done despite my phone being blown up by my wife and girlfriends :?
 I found out my gloves don't like acetone very much...

Another first for me is painting wheels! I've polished the whole wheel and sometimes the edges but never painted and polished a set before. Here I've primed them with the Max 2k primer for metal:

I found a tank with a fuel pump on Ebay for a great price! When it came I found out why it was so cheap...  Had 4 dings up to a half inch deep and the connector was cut off the pump :td: No biggy, I haven't done body repair in a while so I could use the practice :)
  The tank's graphics are clear coated over so I had to break out my trusty heat gun and peel them off!

All primed up! Just have to wet sand it and start painting it. I'm experimenting with fish net and two different colors :grn: I hope it turns out the way I want! I envision snake-like scales in red with the metallic black underneath on the upper front part and the rear of the tank will be all red, fading into the scales.

I kind of liked the gold calipers but I'm going bead blast them and paint them metallic black. The front ones will be accented by the bolts, I'm not gonna paint over those. The rear caliper is going to have a special touch of customization 8) If you didn't notice it already in this pic you'll see what I'm talking about when it's done :wink:
