My zx9r project

Recommended Posts

Okay ive started already, got the bike mechanically sound, but few marks looks like someones hit the gravel on a track day, a crack by intercator, and on top by screen of fairing. but some cleaning etc it will be fine.

however i am painting it, and going to get it looking nicer.

so this is how i got it



ive took the scott oiler off as i dont like it, bike so oily needs a good de-grease. and ive took the rear rack off, not my cuppa but kept it for it i come up north to meet you guys or if i go germany next year like said etc, be handy to have.

i am going to paint it, at the moment ive got this at mind

trying to imagine it on a road going bike thou, but time will tell.

first stop new exhaust asap!

anyway heres it current state. minus rack in first pic

Personal taste.

Although nearly all my bike are/have been black,
I really do like the 9's original blue paint.
The only bike i've had respayed recently went a similar blue.

Having said that, I'd love a Kwak in the green / white / blue colours thumbs

bit of progress ive scotched all the panels down apart from the sides ones, and tank as they need a da to remove paint ridges.

and the mudguard is stuck to the bike, no rust, just been done up so tight it gets to a point i could chew the screws up, might come to taking the risk and if all goes wrong cutting them off Sad







my friend has done some good work on the nose cone,

from this


to this


to this


and this


also painted the purple exhuast, but im not happy with it. if i can get it to sit at a better angle ill get it polished up nicely if not it will do for now



also thought this was funny, thought i would see if i could get 25 miles home on reserve, well i had 140ml of petrol left

why not bin the sleeve on the can, buy a carbon or stainless sleeve? I think carbon can would look perfect with that colour tbf thumbs

yeah mate dont know much about them. maybe youll be able to tell us one day, but i think their bikes look really nice, and its rare, so its nice to ride something that not many others have. never seen a zx9r in these colours, and never seen a hayate rep in the flesh

Looking good.

Is it normal to do it so quick ?
The guy who does mine always lets it sit
for a while, not sure if that's to harden/cure?

Hayate means Hurricane in japanese thumbs the team decided to use the name rather than kawasaki because there wasnt much involement from the factory support thumbs circa 2009 thumbs

primer you just need to be hard enought to sand. base you can worth with very soon. then clears the killer basically, does ideally need bakeing but ill let it sit for a day or 2 and then will be fine.

high flow bodyshops dont take a week to do a car? need it in an out asap. thumbs

saying that my fingers and arms are acheing from all the rubbing down Laughing

ive gone lighter as it brings the black out more etc.
Doesn't really matter mate the bike was all black carbon but a splash of grey wont hurt thumbs

thanks everyone

and stue do you think the belly pans too much?

people saying hayate didnt have that many they did but my pans half the size so its more of a squeeze, but not sure if its too much?

any opinions welcome, as rather move/ take them off before i laquer sturday.

Personally I like the Belly Pan as is Chad but really it depends on whether your happy or not. Great work on the respray and choice of colour by the way and +1 for the carbon can! thumbsthumbs

set back!

coolants got orange crap in. hoping its not head gasket, going to flush it see what it brings, looking at it its hopefully rusty water. someones put shite coolant in it, aka the last service £550 one, bat motorcycles i believe. if not would be ardvark.

aye tony if you are putting decals over fresh paint you should let it cure for a few days otherwise the decals can trap solvents which causes micro blisters. chad should be ok though as he put his decals over the basecoat which cures quick and then he will clearcoat over the top. i prefer to clear the base let it cure then flat,and apply the decals wet as you can sometimes mark the basecoat or pull some away if you have to cut or work the decals into awkward shapes then clearcoat again. but hey everybody does it there way.
