It's been sitting in a barn tore apart for 2 years, covered in dust! But once I finish putting the motor together I'll role it out and wash is down and take some pics, before and after tires and wheels. I got some bald flat itps on there bc I sold my backs.

Thinking about getting the big gun exhaust though I have a hmf now but I hate it

And I'm probably gonna order some 30" silverback x lites

Yea boy sounds good!!!! I never hear to many that like the hmf pipes but everyone I know likes their big gun. X lites or those mumba lites would do good.

That's great news. After a long tear down and dust collecting period on mine I know how satisfying it is to finally get it running. Now get it right and go ride, enjoy the hard work.

Man nothing like FINALLY getting a long term project done.
 
Speaking of which, I really gotta get this Rincon done.  It's been a work in progress for over a year.

Yes I know! It's so easy to just forget about, especially when everytime you fix something you run into another problem, but anyways I just ordered a big gun exhaust and clutch kit

Well put the new sensor in and reinstalled motor. It runs, smokes a little and has a valve cover gasket leak. But hey it runs. Here is where I'm at with it. I am currently installing cv axles witch is a absolute pain in the ****, you gotta be houdini or something to get them to go in. Or just completely disassemble the front end...

Front ends all buttoned up.

Di-electric greased every plug on the bike.
Plan on making it a submarine is there any places I should pay extra attention to, I don't wanna get any water in it this time I siliconed airbox and replaced all the clamps on the bike with hose clamps, gonna snorkel this week.
ALSO WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT MY DIFFS? Every time I go they get water in them, I heard you can put grease in them is this true



And now I need a new valve cover

That's awesome you've just about got her done man! As far as the diffs go, I ran my old 420 with grease in the rear diff for several years before I traded it off, never had an issue aside from one time I ran higher speeds down the train tracks for a few miles and when the grease got hot it pushed the pinion seal out of the diff. I replaced the seal after that ride, refilled the grease and kept going. On that I never had a need to do the front diff, I don't remember ever getting enough water in it to make the fluid milky.

Found the thread I made way back when I did the grease in my 420's rear diff, brought back some good memories.

Yea sorry I never posted what happened until now, I drove it down the street and back and something came apart and now it's ****ed. It turns over and the valves cycle but it doesn't fire.. well it does... just back fires, acting like it has no compression and or jumper timing or something

Do a quick finger over the hole compression test and see if it pops your finger off of it.
