I also pulled the tank and found a pinhole...:. but i found a interesting solution..i will let u all know how it turns out...then i figured the tank was pretty dirty inside so i went ahead and hooked it up with some RedKote...tank liner and sealer...so now the pin hole will be sealed on the inside and the outside!

Re: My practically free 97 750! (build thread)

lol. in all honesty the srad section is quite possibly the best section on here. seems to have the most knowledge, most posts, and even though the only things on my bike that are left srad are the frame and top of the gas tank i still seem to be in here the most.

oh nice score on the bike btw

You think you will get a positive reaction by declaring us as practically dead, wise move....
For practically dead; I have 8 srad carbs in the shop, and just shipped several sets to Spain, the UK, and to a racer in Australia. I have 16 orders for air trays (air boxes) and a motor going to a member here, but but yeah it fucking dead here.....

Re: My practically free 97 750! (build thread)

Oh.... And in this dead area, you might just find that there are members who have srads that are worth more than your house is worth... For this was the golden era of superbikes, where the factories spent stupid amounts to win, and suzuki had no limits, before Superbikes became dumbed down street bikes with special parts...

Yes this isn't as active as the newer bike threads: well let's compare it to the forum of the OP'S other bike, a K6 1000
On this forum, the last thread on the bottom of the page was yesterday at 12:42
On his newer more current forum, the last thread on the bottom was Oct 13th...really active forum........

No, we certainly wouldn't have...in fact, the members here would have been perfectly happy to spend their time helping and if you get a Red R, providing parts to you.
Clearly we are all no help whatsoever...

Also, as an adult i would like to apoligize for any hurt feelings from the dead thread comment. That was my bad. I hope i can still get some sound advice and info from the knowlegeable srad guys on here.

Thanks,
Matt

I won't discourage you, I will help you in any way... You would be shocked at the resources myself and a few others on here have, both in terms of knowledge and materials and parts. But, you are blowing in here the wrong way. And so far, you haven't needed anything......
