    The Project has started.

    History: I bought the bike a last month. She had been laid down twice, once on each side (go figure). So she had a flat rear tire, oil in the injection system and she needs paint. So far, injection cleaned and new loops. now I have torn her down to get her ready for paint.
    I picked her up looking like this.

    First she needed new loops

    Checked compression

    So far I have cleaned injection manifold and torn off plastic to prep for paint.

    Nice one bud.

    Not sure about the compression tho. Is it meant to show Zero? (bear in mind i'm mechanically retarded)

    Nice one,

    are you going standard or race rep for the paint or something completley different?

    always fancied doing a bike in the Gulf racing colours ...pale blue with the orange stripe

    Good luck with the project. Take a look at your valve cover gaskets, It looks as though some numpty has used gasket sealer( to match the bike).

    You're right it normally reads 200psi on both cylinders but I took the picture before the test. When I bought it the guy thought there was a compression issue (good thing he was wrong)

    I was planning on a custom paint.black background, with a tribal design in Charcoal, and a custom sticker set. here is a sample I'm not letting the cat out of the bag for the rest.
