kz400 build/entry : part 5

i finished the intake fabrication, which means i will finally get to hear it run for the first time. nothing beats that accomplishment other than the maiden voyage itself.







Craig at Front St. Cycle bent up some tubing to get started on the seat rails. yhe plan is to start this weekend on it, but i would rather not take focus off of getting the bastard running right now.

kz400 build/entry : part 4

got some more work done on the intake over the weekend. unfortunately my angle grinder brushes are toast leaving me fumbling to finish. not much left but the snout that attaches to the carb, so i am pretty stoked on the progress.



also snapped a couple pics of the tank mounts.

kz400 build/entry : part 3


single carb intake in process. i'm in the tacking phase without enough hands, so until i can get my buddy over to be my "holder" it will have to just wait. no pics of it, but i did get the tank mounts tacked into place with only the threaded bungs left to attach to the frame. i hope to have the intake finished and the bike fired up by the end of October leaving me all of November and December to finish tuning and any fab work.
