Re: ZX7RR Build.

Jason is wanting to paint the bike in Kawasaki France colours. So it would make sense to paint the steel and the alloy tank at the same time. This the scheme we are going with, Jason? But with saturn black wheels. Personally I like the green, but either will look fine. Edit: Jason has decided to go ...

Re: ZX7RR Build.

On good advice, and notepaded, (if that is a word ) here is a rough spec of what we are building: - OEM ZX9r crank is being (further) balanced, with a crank specialist here in Melbourne. -Rods are being re-sized, balanced, and shot peened. -We thought we would use a M1 close ratio trans, but the box...

Re: Hi, long time no see

Hi Stig, yes unfortunately FB is taking it's toll on forums. After a week posts are lost on FB, we have Tim to thank here for keeping this one up and running. I still often go back or search here for something I remember reading, or even some info I have posted and forgotten the details of :crazy: I...

ZX7RR Build.

Okay here is an introduction as to what we are doing to JasonL's ex Worksish Zx7RR M1, and why! We are currently building a Zx9R motor for it to make it more competitive in the P7 class, as it runs against up to 2000 R1's GSXR's ect. And it struggles. The last meet I went to with Jason saw the M1 pa...

ZX7RR Build.

I just put up a massive introduction to JasonL's ZX7RR build here, and when I clicked submit, it asked me for login, and the post was lost, even though I went back to try and find the bloody thing. I guess you will all have to wait, I'm going to have to go through the grieving process. :lolno:

Re: Ultrasonic Cleaner

Here is the lower after cleaning... You can tell I'm happy about this addition to the shed :thumbup: And only 400 au or so pesos! I can promise you that no scrubbing was involved. The fact that corrosion is actually mitigated is outstanding! http://i1177.photobucket.com/albums/x347/pandoras_bits/IMG...

Re: Ultrasonic Cleaner

Yes they are! Here's a comparison the upper crankcase washed, and the lower unwashed. They were obviously in the same state. I use a dishwashing liquid called earth first. It's cheap and know to have an alkaline PH. I put a fair bit into mine. Otherwise I would use truck wash. Anything alkaline is f...

Re: Ultrasonic Cleaner

The best thing is no elbow grease required, and no chemicals, Just water and dishwashing detergent. Dry out parts in the oven afterwards at low heat. And then CRC. I heat the water to about 50 degrees C, and do bursts of 5 minutes so the transducers are not stressed (over heat). Probably 30 minutes ...

Ultrasonic Cleaner

Using my 30 lt Ultrasonic Cleaner for the first time in anger. It's a beauty, It is large enough to clean all engine components including crankcases. Here's Jason's ZX9R cases being cleaned, and a sump that has been through. The cases are cleaned in two haves obviously :thumbup: http://i1177.photobu...
