    Sleeper MX83 build

    Cause I know Gordo's a big fan of bikes, I'll elaborate on this one. Don't get too excited though. The parts list is fairly long, so I'll just elaborate on what I can remember off the top of my head 2008 SV650s GSXR forks Racetech Springs and compression valves GSXR triple trees GSXR wheels GSXR rear wheel conversion kit GSXR front calipers and rotors Stainless steel brake lines Zero Gravity windshield Brembo master Cylinder and lever Pazzo clutch lever Woodcraft clip-ons and risers Hotbodies undertail kit with integrated turn signals ZX-10R shock Driven front and rear sprockets (steel) 520 chain conversion, with quad-ring chain Smaller smoked front turn signals New tires Complete HID kit I did this with just basic tools, so I had to pay professionals to machine the top triple tree clamp and install my fork springs and valves. I think the $4500 included a lot of the tools I had to buy, since I was just starting out with building stuff. I know I'm missing a bunch of stuff, but that's all I can remember for now. INB4 "That beat up R6 in the background is a much faster and better handling bike". I know that, hence why I'm selling the SV.

    The normal delusion, right? I like it, but it's an undesirable bike that few people will want, even after the work that's put into it, hence the large loss I'm going to take on it.

    I knew that going into it though. Modded a motorcycle before. Bought it for 4k. Dumped like $4500 into it, and it's pretty cool and one of a kind. I'll be lucky if I can get 5k for it next spring. I dumped a ton of money into an undesirable chassis that I know I'll never get my money back out of, but I don't care. I'm having fun doing it

    Yeah I hear you there. Kinda sucks dealing with it, but oh well. If I wasn't keeping my heater core, I would ditch it and chop the tunnel a little more to make more room. I think it's been a little over two years since I bought the car. I would rather take an extra six months to a year to get it exactly the way I want it as opposed to getting it done sooner, but still having stuff bother me that I wish I had addressed previously. If it ends up being a three year build that I can't drive, so be it.

    Lol Zack I live my life in that pidgeon hole. My engine bay is stripped, might as well fill every damn hole and smooth the firewall down. My entire dash is removed, might as well remove all the extra wiring in my harness while I'm here. The list goes on... I have more welding to do on the trans tunnel, so I might as well weld any other crap I need at the same time

    Kinda what I figured Gordo. Finally finished moving all my car/garage/motorcycle stuff to the new place. Having a garage is so damn nice. It's great to not be laying in a puddle in 40 degree weather to build a car. A coworker was nice enough to tow my car to my new place. Getting the china wheels back on it and seeing it sitting on the ground gave me more motivation. Cut the large lump out of the firewall to fit the rear turbo pipe. Before everyone gets upset about how janky this plate looks, be patient. I'll finish welding it all the way around once my engine is back out. The overlapping stuff will eventually be ground flush to a butt weld and will be blended in. I had to trim my condenser box that sits in between my blower motor and heater core, but I'll cover the cut back up with a plastic sheet or something. I bought what will hopefully be the last bit of my wiring for this car. Bought two Milspec connectors for my firewall, which I will install before I remove my engine. That should all be here before this weekend.

    I've heard so much hype about turbo blankets... I didn't believe they made that big of a difference, but they absolutely do. I would get one of these and just cover the hoses with some dark snakeskin/fiberglass sleeving, if you can find some in a large enough size. Probably would keep your bay looking a little cleaner as opposed to putting bright shiny tape on everything, but that's just my preference. Oh yeah, and my car at idle is pretty loud even after putting together my exhaust. I don't have a hks can on the back like you. I just have my cx/chinese racing tip.

    2UZ Pissin me the fuck off.

    Seconding what demesio said. If it's a violent misfire, it's likely ignition. If it's soft and kind of intermittent, I would definitely day it's fuel.

    That's enough to get me off. Our cars sound identical at idle. Good shit

    Eh, a lazy sloppy question gets a lazy sloppy reply, what can I say

    Solid research, you get an A+ for knowing what the fuck you bought before you bought it. There's a part number on the ECU itself, Jesus Christ

    Not gonna disagree about the CD being a massive pain in the ass to fit. Just be aware that the T56 is giant too. Probably a bitch to fit that as well, as I recall gordo saying. I spent like 1k for all the conversion crap between the adapter plate and shifter relocation kit. Any way you slice it, it's not cheap whatever trans you go with

    Got my CD for a whopping 300 bucks, I think that's why I'm so into it haha

    Lol. Cost of a r154: 1200 if you're lucky. Shipping to and from marlin crawler for a rebuild :1800 This is the main reason why I wanted to avoid the r154 and go with the cd009. Yes, the gear ratios are shit, but it's substantially stronger and cheaper.
