He's going to watch you from afar, when you stroll down the road... waiting with his red rider bb gun. Watch your back, the garden hose may be lurking to take advantage of you... :rofl:Forgive my ignorance, but other then the Kennedy ordeal what's the significance of the grassy knoll?
If you're wanting to ride then it's a yes.
Keep us posted on your progress...Aside from the drama I have missed...
I stopped in at the local Yamaha dealership over Christmas break, and found out I can make my bike road legal in Alberta. As with most states, it depends mostly on who you talk to and what kind of day they're having. So, my goal is to have this bike fully built and reassembled for some road action by the end of July. My student budget gets in the way of fast progress, but I'm free at the end of April to fill my wallet with that greasy oil money. So... yeah.
A little bummed out, I went home for the Christmas break and they managed to get a few dyno runs done while I was away. Except, with the rig set up the way it was, the airbox fell onto the exhaust and melted a hole in it. I'll add that to the list of parts to purchase. Not overly upset about it, since it's a minor thing. Theses are just preliminary runs so almost everything is wired up and jimmy rigged just to get some runs done. The full, professionally built setup is done with our custom ECU, exhaust, intake, fuel tank, etc. so we can take pictures for our competition.Fun project! Always interesting to find a project in a state such as yours. I don't think I would've passed it up either!
They are keeping basically the rotating assembly. I purchased everything else, but have to wait until the dyno runs are completed on the stock engine before I can take it. So, technically, "on loan" to the dyno is the wiring harness, fuel tank and pump, exhaust, airbox, ecu, intake and injector, handlebars, throttle and clutch cables. Everything except the actual block, head, starter, etc. Which is what attracted me, since it's basically a brand new complete bike, that I can build an engine to suit my needs.So they bought this bike complete, stripped it of all it's necessary running equipment, and left you with the rest. You aren't getting the running gear back right? You mention having to buy an airbox because the original melted upon testing... Aren't they keeping all the running gear?
