Another productive day, removed the swingarm and took it, the rear caliper, rear caliper hanger,and suspension linkage to Nils at Restocycle for vapor blasting and bearing and seal replacement in the swingarm pivot and linkage. Just like most other things on this bike, the bearings, seals and bushings were shot, no grease on anything, and the bolts were all loose and corroded. Just so happens that I had all of the stuff in stock........will be interested to see how it turns out. Nils (a member here) and his boys are top notch bike guys and the restorations they do are pretty cool. Funny thing, when I pulled the swingarm off I found a Proto 14mm long socket inside the swingarm....some mech in Tokyo is prolly still looking for it...... The rear master cylinder was basically destroyed, the only thing salvagable was the casting itself. I had all of the parts for this in stock too, so I gutted it and threw all of the original stuff in the trash bin and dropped it off for vapor blasting as well. Got the exhaust all checked out and marked to be dropped at the cerakote folks tomorrow. After all the stuff was dropped for vapor blasting, got on with getting the frame off the engine, which went smooth as silk. Frame is getting dropped at Restocycle tomorrow for vapor blasting and clean up, then I have to get going on the bits and pieces that get replated and powdercoated and start the process of cleaning the engine exterior. Once the engine exterior is cleaned up, I can pull all of the engine covers and get those blasted too, then they are off to get powdercoated. I'll update tomorrow at the end of the days efforts.
