Re: newbie with a gsxr powered quad
During some dissassembly I found out the thermostat was stuck open so i went looking for one but the 2000 model thermostat housing was different from mine, WTF?? This meant i didnt have a 2000 model motor!?!
I got the engine number and called my local Suzuki dealer... After some research i was informed that the number matched up to a 1998-99 bike. So this started a whole new parts seach. The same day i found a guy who has a 99 gsxr 750 he is parting out! Talk about luck!! I needed several parts like a radiator, speed sensor, exhaust, and a few other small parts to get this motor running like it should. I talked to the guy and he has all the parts i needed and is asking very fair prices for them so i am very excited!!!
If all checks out good i will be getting his speed sensor to get the tach and speedo to work, His custom Yoshimura exhaust with header, and complete radiator (with fan, sensors, all hoses, overflow container, thermostat and housings!)
Once i get all these parts i can finish the fabrication on the frame, brackets, and motor mounts. Once everything is hooked up and mounted perfect i will take the motor to the Suzuki dealer to get it all checked out have the valves adjusted and whatever else it needs. hopefully there wont be any serious problems with the motor!
I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! i cant wait to get this thing running!! wish me luck!
