No, it has to go back to stock. I talked to russ the other day and he was telling me about a recent H2 that he striped off a perfect flip flop paint job that someone thought would be cool about 10 years ago. I will probably sell this when I finish it and a stock bike is worth a lot more that a custom painted bike.

That would really be a shame to do a cafe build on a h1 or h2. s
Sell it to me and go buy a 650 yamaha and cafe away on that.

Picked up the frame from powder coat.
Looks great, pressed in some new brass swing arm bushings, now the fun starts putting it back together.

Nice looking!

Something to check on now is the fit/size of those swingarm bushings. It is not unusual for the bores to be distorted after pressing the bushings in, and subsequently find that the pivot bolt doesn't fit properly. If the pivot bolt does not pass through, or binds when you try to rotate or spin it, then you need to re-ream the bores.
Better to check it now while the components are not yet partially assembled. FYI.

Well its starting to look like a motorcycle.
Installed new steering stem bearings, races. Put new seals and new dust covers on the new polished fork lowers and and put them on.

Installed the new brass bushings in the swing arm and installed it on the bike, Then mounted the new rear shocks. Its starting to look like a bike again.

Also dropped the tins off with Russ at custom classics yesterday. Going with the root beer brown with the yellow Kawasaki stripe. Technically it's called Candy Yellow.

I'm really excited to see the paint on this one. Russ never fails to amaze me. The paint on the DT400 was just beautiful.

(Look at the "Prices" option list)
You'll need to paint/preserve the end caps yourself, but they should work. Take measurements of your pipes (O.D., tube length) then call or email. If they'll fit your pipes you'll be in good luck. They work like they should, and sound righteous.
Also called and got the silencers on the way should be here monday. Jim Hobs at Lakeside is a super cool guy, really knows his stuff and kawasaki triples are his thing He also helped me out with the jetting. Thanks again for the lead and link.

Nice. Jim's a good guy.
You going to start with your main jets at 100, or 97.5? Stock airbox, or the K&N copies in the first photo? If the latter, keep a close eye on them. They've been known to come apart.

Hey DM,

Do you jet the middle cylinder richer than the outside cylinders? Just curious, as I have heard middle cylinders can be a problem. Have zero experience, but just asking.

I bought a set of 102.5 /100 / and 97.5 Jim said 100 is a good place to start I might start there or the 102.5 they say start on the rich side run it wide open if if blunders drop it down until it cleans up that way you are running on the rich side vs running it to lean. We all know that's not good.

Right now it's got a set of 95 mains in it and looking at the specs it should have 90 from what I can tell. It did seem to be flooding out on the low end and a bit Rich on the top end in the short time I spent riding it.
