    Sorry to hear.
    Does it need a new tank? (you can get tanks resealed with the 2-pack resin mixture things if you are concerned about the internal surfaces...?

    I thought of you last weekend as I was doing a clean out.
    I have a workshop manual for the ZXR if you want it?

    That was the plan but the tank badly dented not a issue but it wasnt fixed properly and started to rust under the bog so tank isnt fixable

    Dunno where this project is going a bit. Maybe the heat is making me go crazy.
    Thought I might type my plans out and maybe by the end i'll have made a decision or at least someone might give me some feedback

    I'm in two minds, either to make a period piece endurance race bike

    or

    Make a custom endurance racer

    People have shown me this from ICON 1000



    I don't like the classic endurance bug eyes look so was going to install some ancillary LED lights and this rig from ICON looks pretty integrated, so that maybe the way to go.



    My OEM headlights are cracked, so swap them out for a halogens with a LED halo ring. Why, dunno. They look cool



    And then to retrofit a new "icon1000" like light mount in front of the fairing to add these



    why square - i'm not sure but everything in the 80/90's was square so why not

    But its how mount them is the question?
    Taking the current headlights off to show the mounts 330 x 90



    So perhaps a plate fitted here to mount the new headlamps and provide a base plate for struts with threaded ends both ends to punch through the fibreglass nose to form the light rig/protector?

    Im gunna try and draw a CAD drawing up to mock up something.

    The other thing i don't like is my OEM speedo, tach, and oil temp cluster. Its a gotta go.

    I like the minimalist lines of race bikes that use lap timers, like this



    So that's where i want to head. The down side is that lap timers are like speedangle.com.au are $500
    and lets face it - im no GP rider so why spend that.

    I wonder what the downside of using a smartphone and having a GPS speedometer running would be. Is there is a electronic ignition like DYNA 2000 but that has bluetooth that could rely revs etc info to a smartphone
    display?

    Last bit is bit of a bugger - metal polishing.

    I had a quick go at polishing the swing arm with a sisal pad on a drill and then buffing. Yeah it works but....



    There is no way i'm going to achieve that finish all through the nooks and crannies.
    So i don't know what to do now.....

    I've seen show bikes with mirror like frame and swingarms. They must have been sandblasted and polished. I wonder how much that costs?

    On the upside i can probably polish up my rearsets. So i've bought some replacement adjustable pegs



    oh, and some lever protectors to emulate what icon1000 did



    thats where im at.
    Ill post when ive cadded up the light mount. cheers
