Thread: Years with Yamaha SXViper

    Bulkhead is okay, if front shocks bottom that causes bulkhead cracks. Most biggest problem is front cooler and sump shield rivets. All rivets are loosen or off. I think i'm going to replace them with long 6.4mm steel rivets and add some aluminium profile.

    But today i finally get engine running, that feeling was awesome

    One exhaust flange is leaking a little, but i think that i'm going to put some heat silicon, i don't want to cut and weld those pipes anymore. It was pretty annoying job to get everything fit and build those silencers.

    Next step is build exhaust gas temperature meter and paint some YAMAHA logo to seat, like original seat. And also i need to find some motivation to create a code for arduino, i already have a 4-channel egt-k "amplifier" and all connectors ready!
    I think that it would be most easiest way buy some, but i wan't to make everything by myself.

    Little update, i bought another viper! Or actually i change those speedwerx pipes to viper frame. I thought that i put 780 on frame that i bought and then i fix my modded yamaha`s frame. I think that i put stock 700 with bender 4x4 pipe and finally build rack steering on it. What do you think?

    Whenever you get those 2-speed HeelClickers, insure that the pivot pin update has been done. Or needs to be done. I remember someone saying something about that. I think in another of your threads. I don't want it to fail and wipe out your clutch.

    If it's the donut you're talking about ..... I have cut up long strips of steel wool from a batt. Then I wrapped it around the donut. Finished it up by working RTV into the wool. Install it wet on clean surfaces and it will adhere.

    Hi,

    Finally started to do something special. Many hours of fabrication and designing. But now it is fitted! I'll post some more pics when it is ready and also some story of my riding trip when chassis rear brackets broke down...
    Bumb steering problem is now solved, next weekend going to test how it works. That steering problem was pretty bad cause i used those long fox float and "stock" steering.
