    ok where was I?

    oil leak sorted, bike overheating like mad. ordered the following parts:


    and fitted em:


    dont new shiny parts just look so fuckin lovely?!
    but fuck how they look, the main thing is that they work properly. Temp gauge now reading, and the fan was coming on properly. no more overheating!

    time to put her clothes back on![hr]

    RE: Mean Green- ZXR750 H1 rebuild

    so, i finally got to put the fairings back on:




    And she was good to go!


    since then ive had the carbs out for a proper strip and clean. ive had a dynojet lying round since forever, but wanted to get the thing running properly before i fit it. she was still running a bit rough, wouldnt tickover, would hesitate when given full throttle etc etc. no amount of fiddling with the pilot screws would fix it. so i decided to fit a spare set of carbs i had aquired a long time ago, just to see if it was any better. Stripped these to clean them, and fuck me if they didnt have a dynojet kit already fitted..

    put the new carbs in, holy fuck she was sweet. pulling like a train. so i fitted a K&N filter and it only got better.


    next installment: the breakdowns, the alternator issue, and just what the hell is a Gunson Colourtune anyway?!

    H1 are a great bike sold my one some years back, had only 18k kms from new. Rock hard rear suspension, hitting a bad bump was like getting kicked in the arse.

    Wish I had the time for a project, everyone seems to be working on something as the weather is getting warmer
    All funds are currently being channeled into useless yet necessary shit

    best thread ever ronski!

    very interested in who did the head work and rad/oil cooler. were the prices reasonable? i have my ever looming zx7/9r project all around me and as i have the 9r lump out, may aswell do some head work so i'd be interested to know.

    RE: Mean Green- ZXR750 H1 rebuild

    Orange, youre in cork right? I left the head, block and pistons into cawleys on forge hill. He charged me 500 euro. Hes out of business now, and i feel he overcharged me anyway. I asked him to polish the inlet ports, and when i got the head back it looked like someone had just stuck a dremel into them and waggled it around a bit. As far as i know, he outsourced most of the work to murphys engine reconditioning. He got the piston rings for me and fitted them, but im sure i could have managed that myself..

    dont have a number for murphys but everyone knows them i think. Cork engine centre in little island will do that kinda stuff too, i got my valve shims machined in there and they were good to deal with, none of this 'im better than you' crap.

    got the rad and the oil cooler done in lee radiator services in the marina business park. that was kinda pricey too, over 80 euro i think. But the guy there knocked a bit off the price when i moaned a little. And when u think about it, theres a fair bit of work in sitting down and straightening out every little fucking fin. And i was really happy with the result. Even tacked on a homemade 'fender extender' onto the front mudguard cos i couldnt bear seeing that lovely oil filter getting all clogged again...

    your project sounds very interesting.. will the 900 engine go in alright?

    Yep, in cork alright, for once i know of all those places!
    Great stuff, funnily enough i was looking at cork engine centres business card the other day and was contemplating giving them a buzz. Good to know bike stuff isn't beneath them.

    Cawleys went out of business alright. I used the dyno a fair few times with different bikes, he was decent in that regard. I remember doing 3 or 4 runs in 1 day with the Tuono - I came back with different mods each time to see the improvements - I think he only charged me for 1 run, which was sound. But yeah, can't say much about his other services as i never had the occasion.

    The 9r engine from the b1/2 model fits pretty easily - some small brackets are required - thankfully I have a BRG fitting kit, so no messing about.


    For some reason I thought you were in Galway? Did you move to Cork recently?
