Well it's time to knock the dust off the old vmax since money is tight the zx14is going to have to wait I'm ordering the remaining parts to finish the vmax today so the old lady can have her bike back and quit complaining about not having a bike to ride. I'll get some pictures of some of the parts and post them soon. The bike has been down for almost 5 years
And I have had most of the stuff to finish it but never got around to it. I was going to have the chain conversion done but never did so it's going to have Ross 12:1 forged pistons Carrillo A beam rods heavy duty valve springs ported head that flows 130 cfm and for a vmax that’s a shit load stock is like 95 cfm all I need to finish it are the bearings for the Crank, Rods and Balancer shaft a shift cam and all the gaskets I’m also putting the wet nitrous kit back on it with a progressive controller and will be going for a 100 hp shot. With all the stuff that is being done it may get in the 9’s on a good day in Roswell with a slick and Wheelie bar.

Sounds as bad as my 750 Turbo. It's been way too long since I have ran that bike. When quit effing with the Busa then I will get back to the old Kawi. Besides, this was really my street/strip bike anyhow.

I hate it when these nice parts have to be sealed back up in the engine and are no longer viewable. What a waste of nice machining and/or handwork.

I cant wait to take the bike down.
Every time I raced the bike I lost but I had a slower bike at the time.

All motor when its done then we can do spray runs.See if our motors hold.

Lots of cash being throw at it cant wait to see AND hear it on the road again.
Yeah like $2,100 but every thing that is needed is on order so now it's just a waiting game and it's better than the $8,000+ to finish the zx14 and I can't wait myself it's been a long time coming.:)
