Trying to restore a neglected sp1
I got the but of a lifetime in 06. Bought an 04 Nicky Hayden edition with 348 miles for 5k. Put 7500 on it and traded it for an new 07 zx10r. It was my only vehicle and I wanted a warranty. I always missed that bike and ran across sp1 for cheap (after repairs I could have probably bought a clean one for the same or cheaper, but it's hard to cough of the 1 lump sum). The bike appears to start and run fine. The chain was maxxed out to the adjusters and came off the sprocket on the test drive. The head lights are HID and poorly wired in. 1 fork is leaking. Front tire has tits on the edges but cracks in the tread and side walls. The rear is bald in the center.The blinkers are aftermarket and only some work.I don't k ow if it's the sticky controls or bad wiring. They arent firmly mounted as much as loosly poking out of the fairing.The head lights are stuck on bright only. The throttle had aluminium grips the caroded the throttle so It doesn't return properly. It does have Jardine cans.
For the fun part.
I just received my forks with 20mm valves and sprung to my weight from Kyleracing, 15 and 41 sprocket kit, 520 mrvs(?) chain, speigler front and rear brake lines. I think I order kyle' s flapper valve plates too. A front headlight harness from eBay, new break and clutch reservior, handlebar controls, throttle from honda. Progrip oversized grips (I wear 3xl gloves), and Pirelli angel gt 120/70 and 190/55 tires. A speedohealer and pc5. I hope this gets is roadworthy. Somethings I'm sure will co me up. I just want a fun bile to ride on my days off no track warrior here.
