    Back to the future...

    Well a wee green FXR has taken up residence in my shed. Cheap, virginal, unmolested with 7900km but has been on it's side a few times. Bodywork is pretty tidy, mirrors stuffed, both clipons bent. Still has reg & WOF so will be doing commuting duties for a few weeks. Serviced and checked it over today. Battery flat. Put it on the charger but it won't take a charge. Don't need that - binned. Uh oh blinky dash - found the microfarad capacitor Mike told me to get for the last one, popped it in and all good. Made up a mirror from a broken KTM one and had a blat around Rollyberg. Goes well enough but feels gutless compared to the wee red rocket.

    Plan is to keep this build simple, cheap and just have some fun - Akunar 30mm flatslide knock off cos it worked so well last time, header and good alloy muffler and some slicks.

    I have a RS tail and a hacked about RS top fairing that I picked up for nix a while ago but am tempted not to bother and just leave it looking like a tidy street FXR.

    Looking to debut at Methven.

    A bit of fun today thanks to the generosity of Mr Ling....
    I hopped on the FXR and tootled over to the YLR MotoFXR factory where we popped it onto the dyno.
    So.... a factory standard FXR with 8000km is good for 13.5HP
    Mr Ling was impressed by the tyres it was wearing and said that they would do fine, so that saves me a few $'s in keeping with this being a cheap as chips budget build.
    I was allowed a bit of time in the shed this arvo so have been busy with a hacksaw and file....
    Cheers.

    Sweet, I've got by with 13.something hp for awhile now so you will be sweet as Tim......the power delivery will make it easy to ride and you will surprised how well you will go on it.
    sometimes I wish for falling
    wish for the release
    wish for falling through the air to give me some release
    falling not the problem
    when I'm falling I'm at peace
    its only when i hit the ground it causes all the grief!

    Hi Tim,

    Sounds like your are nearly ready to rock and roll, I'm thinking about coming over for the CAMS meet on the 26th if the weather is any good, will you be giving it an airing then?

    Cheers
    Muzz
