Atleast parts are readily available.

Kids (and you) are going to be in for quite the experience

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

Agreed! I've got the rest of the fairings that go with it including the whole front assembly it was just loose so I took it off and put it in my car rather than have it fly off at 80mph on the freeway

I also have 2 engines to go with it. The engine in it is seized, but there is a great looking replacement that the guy gave me to go with it as long as a halfway decent looking engine that the PO (previous to the guy I bought it from) bought, but wasn't right for the bike.

Anyway, it's certainly going to be an adventure and a learning experience and probably a lot of other things as well. We will just have to see how it all goes - which sounds just fine to me

Well, yet again, it's been a long time since I've posted...we have been doing a little bit of work here and there on the bike, but my personal and professional lives have both kept us from working as much as I would like. However, we have made some good progress.

We have been able to get most of the bodywork sanded and ready for primer and then paint and I will have students finishing up with the last piece getting it sanded tomorrow. Then we are going to attempt to build a PVC paint booth so that we can paint in the corner of my classroom (there's a door to vent). Thankfully, I've got a few old, really busted, pieces of bodywork that I'll be able to have them practice painting before doing the real stuff.

We have also gotten most of the electrical issues straightened out... more of a challenge than I was anticipating, but I think we've mostly gotten it figured out - we'll see when we start really testing, I guess... We may still need a bit of help mostly figuring out what's going on with the wiring we have and don't have with regard to the starting system. I'll post on that specifically when we finally get around to it.

We were able to get the brake calipers torn down, replaced all the seals in them, rebuilt the master cylinder, and will be putting that all back together as soon as I get my hands on a new fluid reservoir.

One of the things we are actually struggling with right now is the rear wheel. The bike has a swingarm swap from a 2002 R6 (all of which seems to be mechanically good in terms of solid connections and modifications), but when we torque down the rear axle nut completely, it stops the wheel from spinning freely. It seemed like maybe we were missing some kind of spacer or something, but going through the manual and the wheel, we can't find anything missing. Are there other problems that could cause this? It spins great when the axle isn't fully tightened, so I wouldn't have thought it would be the bearings, but maybe I'm wrong about that? What do you guys think?

Finally, we got a donation of a Vortex chain and sprocket kit through Sportbike Track Gear which we are very excited about, so a big thanks to both of those companies for participating with us!

We have a little less involvement from members with any experience (I mean any experience at all...like any experience holding a tool) this year so things are going a little slower, but we are doing pretty well all the same. And really, that's what this is all about anyway - getting tools in the hands of kids who may have never held them otherwise. If it takes a little longer and they break a few of my parts, well, that's the cost of teaching I guess.

We got some fun stuff yesterday. We haven't done anything with any of it yet because we are still working on getting it running, but it will be fun to make it look nice once we have it running!

Bike/Parts Donations to School Club?

So, brief update and some pictures:

We got all the bodywork done, the decals on, and everything mounted so we could display the bike last week at our school's fundraiser event. It looked fantastic!!!

However, we are still having issues getting it running...we think, at this point, that we have a bad starting circuit cutoff relay or a bad ecu though, so hoping we'll get it all worked out relatively soon
