Congrats! Looks really clean.
Thank you (I hope I haven't ~over hyped~ it's condition!). I believe it can actually be cleaned up even better. I knew about the surface rust on the stock pipes, but that's such a minor issue. A little steel wool (or the like) to remove the little bits of surface rust, then hit it with high temp exhaust paint (flat black). I'm interested in removing/selling the Termignonis and replacing them with the GPR set in the attached fotos. I realize those pics are of the later model SS/CR (the "Pierre"), but I'll correspond with GPR to see if they'll fit the '96CR or if they offer a set that do. I really like the "S" pipe and how they tuck right up under the stock bodywork. And of course those "DEEP TONE" mufflers are just the shiznik ... made from "INOX" material. I'm guessing that may be an offshoot of Inconel. Stainless "S" pipes as well. The whole set sells new at $600.00 ... right about what used Termis sell for! Sweet.
Also, are there new hose kits for the oil cooler and the other external engine/oil lines? I'd prefer stainless braided. I've been eyeballing "Galfer" stainless braided lines for the fr/rr brakes and the clutch ... maybe they have the other external engine oil lines as well.
... I got zero records with mine...that's really cool. You have a fun day ahead of you...xmas in June.
There's WAY WAY more docs with it, that one I posted is just the latest service doc. The seller put a lot more info on a thumb drive that he included with the bike. There's the full-on service manual on that thumb drive as well (the actual factory service
manual) along with the actual small operator's manuals that fit in side of the storage compartment on the bike. As well as the original purchase invoice (the original owner actually trekked down from Madison Wisconsin to buy the bike brand new from a dealer in Phoenix Az !!!) and of course the Az registration. I'll be attaching pics of all of that now that I know how.
I'll check those tips for that seam as well.
Ok, we're out to unload the new member of the family. I'm dreading that, it's a bit tricky to do, takes three people ... one in the bed of the truck, one guiding it down the ramp and one more as a spotter and anchoring the bottom of the ramp by standing on it to make sure it doesn't slip from the tailgate. We make sure to place the truck ~just so~ to where the end of the ramp sits in an expansion joint in the cement driveway.
Ok, I'm just stalling now!
.... more coming in a bit ....
