    What did you go with for a clutch lever, I haven't found anything that's a direct cross to the FZR/YZF600R setup yet?

    Mike sells the YZF600 levers which apparently bolt right up to the FZR perches. Here's the part number for the clutch perch: http://www.boats.net/parts/detail/ya...911-01-00.html

    If you'll notice at the bottom of the page it's used on the FZR 400, 600, and the YZF600. The clutch part numbers don't match but because the perch is the same the levers should swap between them. I think mechanically the levers are identical but maybe they were a different color or something which made the P/N change for the YZF

    Wow, really coming together!

    Any particular reason you didn't go as far as walnut blasting or doing something to clean up the engine and such?

    Those rims were PC'd from the factory. Stripped bare. Acetone bath. Baked at 300. Acetone bath again and then PC'd. I doubt he'll have a problem.

    I actually cleaned up the engine quite a bit from where it was. I thought about doing it but figured it was hidden behind the plastics so who cares. In a year or two it'll be right back to being dirty anyways. Walnut blasting would just expose the bare aluminum which would form an aluminum oxide surface layer on the first heat cycle which would just get stained again from dirt + grime pretty much putting me back in the same situation as before. The only real solution would be painting the engine but that would require a full disassembly which was a bit outside of the scope of what I wanted to do.

    Yeah I get it - Just surprised you didn't go for it. Could have cleared the alum to help keep the oxidation at bay, no?

    either way its coming along, hopefully you don't crash it when you get it roadworthy
