i would say you are likely correct on the clutch lever. I removed it and put on a new one that came with the bike. also changed out the left hand controls that had been melted for a spare set along with the fast idle cable, cut back and extended the stator wires and used a new deutsch connector at the voltage reg ( i had one missing the plug anyway). I changed out the burned over flow tank for a spare late model unit. Changed the front sprocket for one in much better condition sticking with the 18 tooth size. cut off the chain, and found a used ek zzz i got from a bike at work that got a new one just for the sake of having a new one before a race. found a nicer foot peg assembly and will be setting it up for gp shift like my race bike to avoid the relearning curve each time i switch bikes. also have passenger pegs and decent shape stock seats. I also noticed that it still has the kleen air system so that will need to go too.

Definitely a worthy cause! Congrats on taking on another rebuild! Reminds me of Tex's "Pigpen" rebuild - he did Pigpen proud, and I'm sure you'll do the same for Skip!

Any twelve people who can't get themselves out of jury duty are not my peers.

Tonight I removed the kleen air system, added block offs and changed the spark plugs for a set of cr10e gapped a little tighter than normal in case I ever feel the need to turn up the power. We run 18 thou on big power turbo bikes so I went middle ground at 22. I dont have the factory plug tool but have been using this combo for years. A cut ratchet, short extension, an oldschool universal and a regular plug socket. Works like a charm. I used a bolt, nut and a couple of thick fender washers to seal off the frame. My spacer is just a 1/2 in nut sanded a bit to be the correct thickness. Ideally i would machine up an aluminum spacer but this is functional and saved a drive to work. I really miss the lathe when doing small projects at home. This spacer determines the crush on the rubber and let's the bolt actually snug up with proper tq instead of just grabbing rubber. It has some permanent threadlocker and a nylock so it's not going anywhere. This is obviously over kill but since I was in there I made it good enough that it never needs changed again, even if the bike gets a turbo... which it might if it stays in my possession long enough.
I pulled the rear wheel and will swap the burned tire out for an old spare in have here that's not good enough for a race bike but fine for a stocker on the street.

Got the tires swapped, pulled the arm and shock, replaced with spare parts from my collection of junk/treasure, installed oem suspension links. greased the 3 rear wheel bearings, they feel fine but looked like they may be running on factory installed grease from 2000 lol. Ill do the front the next time that wheel is off. the fire sure did make a mess. i think it will be easier to blast and paint or pc the arm vs cleaning it. next is the cat and an o2 bung. Ive just recieved some "code" i purchased that will allow the 00 ecu to switch maps on the fly instead of having to cycle the power for the change to be made. ill flash a different fuel map into the second set of maps and should easily be able to verify the change is happening based on the o2 reading. this will be great for running different fuels or for nitrous applications. you can change the fuel map and the ign map without anything added on but a switch :) the goal is no add on boxes and less things to possibly go wrong.

I like this idea of having two maps to be able to change on the go. As you say, less to go wrong with add-ons.

Yes, that's my aim too, which is why I bought the Woolich set up.

Well done, and just for interest,

For Tech Questions Bike Model letters and Country are more useful than saying the year, for UK owners anyway, as registration year is not always the year of manufacturer model.

The work Im doing is just putting together the work of others (testing it) and paying them for services. the real magicians are the computer programmers. once they do their thing i can use the programs to do the tuning and turn theory into reality. I have a very promising additional fuel table i need to verify works this wknd ;)

Easiest cat removal to date. All one chunk. I think my welds are slightly nicer than what mass production makes.

the subframe came today, poorly packaged and busting out of the box, but miraculously unharmed. got that cleaned up and swapped into the bike. changed the burned up rear brake line out for an oem. mounted the oem tail light that came with the bike and found a spare harness and bulbs from my collection of junk/treasure. i then had to fix the front brake switch as it was not working from sitting for so long. a nice little trick to make contacts like that work again is to just squirt a little penetrating oil into it and work the switch a few times. its a lot easier than taking the switch apart to clean the contacts manually. Im still waiting for a master link to show up to put the chain on, but its getting closer to being mobile. im going to dyno it just to double check that the motor doesnt need rebuilt. if it only makes as much power as a hayabusa then theres something terribly wrong and it will need to come apart.

Masterlink for the chain finally showed up, so I got that on tonight and the oem chain guard that came with the bike. it had one of the huggers with the guard built in i assume as thats what the melted bits appeared to be.

Ive struggled to get an aftermarket fiberglass body kit to fit and have given up trying to make it look nice. it can get cut up for a race bike someday (thats what it was originally bought for anyway). So ive rolled the dice on abs injection moulded fairings on ebay. Ive seen a set look decent on a bike Hibs worked on, so hoping I have good luck too. I went with matte black as they look like a dark silver or charcoal in the pics. I hope they actually show up that way and not black!
