So I found this site hoping to get some pointers and good advice about rebuilding my k6 gsxr 1000. I've honestly never worked on a bike before but I am very mechanically inclined and always believed if someone else can do it the so can I... You know fixing things wise. Anyway I traded a $1000 trailer for this bike, clean rebuild title. Dude Said it had 30,000 miles on it and needed a valve adjustment and new plastics. Once I drove the 5 hrs to pick it up I was informed it didn't have any back brakes and he lost the key. Oh and he thought it needed a new starter clutch. So after poking around the bike and removing what plastics where left I figured out that the starter clutch is fine but the splines on the starter where obviously stripped out so that's one easy fix. Its got a full Yoshi exhaust and a power camander 5.Also the breather is out and wires are everywhere but I'm slowly figuring it out. All the valve cover bolts where in a box except the last one in the far right hand corner thats wallerd out but I can get her out lol. One thing that concerns me is I can see red rtv silicone along the bottom case so I'm pretty sure someone has been in them guts haha. Sooo.... My plans are to get the owners manual on the way. Then replace the ignition lock set, replace the starter, check the stator, rectifier, replace the battery and go ahead and do the valve adjustment myself. Also while I'm in there replace the timing chain tentioner with an oem one and just double check my timing. Of and re wire the radiator fan. If I can get her to fire off I'll sink my carbs and fingers crossed she sounds right then I'll start replacing plastics, brakes, tires chain sprockets and all the other things I can think of. But I'm sure I'll have a bunch of questions and was hoping yall could lead me in the right direction along the way. Thank y'all very much.
