86 GSXR 1100 project start to finish.

Alright so here I go with the starting process for my 86 1100. Its going to be blue and white 86 1100. 01 Bandit motor, carbs and wiring harness. yosh full exhaust, 06 GSXR 1000 forks, Yamaha r1 calipers. Ducati master front brake cylinder. Aprilia wheels. O7 GSXR swingarm. Theres alot of parts I got for the build but missing some body parts. But my goal is to get a roller first and the motor installed. I cleaned the frame and swing arm today. I used grease lighting and sand paper and steelwool. The frame is fabricated and took pictures so you can see how it was done. I had 2 frames done and this was the first attempt. The second came out much better. The frame is going to black or darkl grey. Maybe even silver. The wheels will be painted homo white as some members referred to if your rolling white you aint right! My girlfriend's 38 double dds knows better. So whatever. Heres some picuters of whats going down and how to build a bike from a bin of parts.

Re: 86 GSXR 1100 project start to finish.

You can see I got a pair aprilia forks for this build but after all the pro and cons. Like it doesnt just slide into 91 GSXR 750 Fork clamps. I would have to use a new lower clamp and press old stem. Scratching that idea and using the one I know works. 91 GSXR 750 triple clamps with 06 GSXR 1000 tubes.

I like it - who did the fab work on the frame? I wanted to build an adjustable upper shock mount on my street bike but ran out of time.

Keep those pictures coming - you can never have too many pics, and there may be one or two of us who get tips and ideas from what others do. (And a pic is always worth a 1K words). Will definitely keep an eye on this thread. Very nice, Oz

Re: 86 GSXR 1100 project start to finish.

Great project!
Thanks for sharing and please keep us updated.
I don't think white wheels are gay, just a bitch to keep clean.
Do you plan any modifications for the engine?

Nice project, and white wheels rock!

How much of a pain is it to install the Aprillia wheels?


cheers

Re: 86 GSXR 1100 project start to finish.

yeah, keep us posted with fotos.

tip: you have to be thick skinned and not worry about other people's comments. especially when you post fotos. paint your wheels whatever color you like. not sure how white wheels are homo...if you are gonna worry about other people's comments, we all should be riding/working on new bikes.

like eric stated in the other post; at least you build your bikes.

Re: 86 GSXR 1100 project start to finish.

I have an odd request:

I need your plastic!
LOL

-----------

Ok, since thats not gunna happen, Im painting my bike and have a full sticker kit of your same paint scheme- my problem is, I dont have a Tri-Blue and white 1986 1100...........

The plastics Im using are from all different models of 1st gen 750s and 1100s. But oddly I dont have one piece of plastic thats off a Tri-Blue and white! So as it stands, when I trail-fit my parts, the bike looks like a patchwork quilt.

The odd request I have is: Would you be able to Post pics of the parts you have (including the tank) perhaps with a ruler held next to the edges where the lines are to help me in masking the dark blue after the white is laid down, and also help with sticker placement?

I have seen some REALLY bad paint/stripe jobs when doing google image searches of different Tri-Blue/white 1100s!!!!

I know its a pain in the ass, but it would help greatly, and I couldnt think of a better source! LOL-
Pics like this:






I'm sure anyone else that has a secret stock/hourde of 1986 Blue/White 1100 plastic could help as well........

GEE! come to think of it, we could make an all new "Painters reference" thread and people could submit pics off ALL models and years of oilers like what Im talking about for everybody to use? For starters I could post all the rest of my parts for every body else? Let me know what you think?

Re: 86 GSXR 1100 project start to finish.

Quick question for oiler crowd, I have 1052 motor and Bandit motor. Miles on 1052 are 30,000 miles. It feels like a one piston has lag but the motor was running good. The bandit motor has 18000 with a new valve job. I dont want to be tearing into either motor just want to slap them in and ride. Which one would you use? 1052 with 38 carbs or bandit 01 motor with stock carbs??

Re: 86 GSXR 1100 project start to finish.

Alright got back into building my oilers. Scavaged the good parts off my crashed 87 711. The forks and wheels wasted big time. But I got it all broken down and started on my 86 1100 blue and white. Frame came back with 07 gsxr 1000 swing arm from my boy over at Duraglo with nice looking black paint. Cost me 150.00 I didnt want to go the power coat route cause when you heat the frame to certain degress it takes the strength out of the metal. Is this true? Thats what my welder friend told me I put the bandit motor in. I ve got a list of shit to do. I have chrome RC wheels going on the bike. I have 2 sets of 86 blue and white 1100 plastics getting done in 2 weeks. One is Canadian tank and one is USA tank. I like the Canadian model better cause they harder to find but it dont matter cause I got both! ha ha I purchased a decal kit from RDdecals. Show you how they come out. I using a new painter and he promises quick results and professional work. I saw some work on a TL1000 that was dropped off a motorcycle lift and had to be repainted. Came out like brand new so I giving him a try both sets of plastics at 800.00 each. Heres is a photo of the work so far. 1100 frame 07 swing gsxr 1000 swing arm and 01 or 02 Bandit motor

Re: 86 GSXR 1100 project start to finish.

looks good! like the black frame.

put the 1052 cams in that bandit motor though, the bandit cams really hold it back.
