I'll get moving on this lol. They will be words of joy to Jason's ears, but the truth is we are close to engine assembly. I'm still working on the rods, but not far away. Once that job is done, it is just assembly.

The delimer regarding the oil pump-alternator drive could not be resolved without the proper works kit. So I have turned the alternator drive into what is essentially now an idler gear, and we will actually end up with better oil pump flow, and I think less drivetrain friction loss due to less acute chain angles.

I'll sort out the lost photo's and we will get moving on this! Cheers.

Con-rods have been resized, each available bearing size was purchased and plasti-gauged. We have settled on a size, and ordered bearings for the remaining 3 rods. Unfortunately they don't have stock locally, so they are on their way from Japan.

I've updated the photo's FB deleted, and will have some updates on this build in the next few days. Cheers.

If Aussie is anything like here they will arrive faster and cost less than if you bought local :lolno:

Jason is getting them through the dealer, so there will no difference in price.

The Kwaka parts on the other hand are about 1/2 the price of Yamaha, for the same sort of item... go figure?

It's (was) Jasons ZX7RR M1.

ex-Team Kawasaki Australia

Has a Hallam Bros full kitted engine, mag marchesini's, reworked WP front and rear, FCR's, carbon airbox, Alloy tank etc etc. :drool:

It comes with all the bits to build a kitted ZX9r (950) engine as well. Pretty cool!

I think it is Kawasaki kit, but will confirm. I'm looking for an Akrapovič full system for the 950.

Because it is what is termed as P7 here, the rules are pretty loose. As a 94 750, it competes against 1000cc 2000 year GSXR1000's etc.

The bike and all it's 750 providence will be retained, restored and stored. It will be fitted with a kitted 955 motor, and it will be interesting to see how it goes. :drool:

Speaking of Team Kawasaki Australia... I've added another ex-TKA bike to the pile.

This one is Josh Waters 2005 ZX600N. it's a ZX-6RR, and is like the ZXR750RR M1, this is also a homologation special.

Probably only 20 came into the country, and this one is the factory bike.

It came 4th in the 2005 Australian super-sport category.

For some reason all my photos are munted when I resize them? Anyway you get the idea? :crazy:

They are a nice looking thing!

They sure are porky to sit on though Tim!

The M1 photoed is probably the sweetest handling bike I have ever ridden. Just takes some getting used to.

I don't see any photos of an M1 Ralph?
