Got some more work done on the bike. Got the front upper bodywork mounted. Lots of messing around because the bodywork didn't match up to the stock mounting holes all that well so I had to "adjust" the stock mounts a bit.

Also put the frame sliders on and have started bleeding the brakes. I don't have a vacuum bleeder unfortunately so it may be a few days of fighting to get the air out.

Kind of bad lighting but you get the idea. The tank bodywork is also put on properly now, not just laying there as in the pic.

Woot! Figured out my wiring issue.... ended up being something stupid of course!

When I swapped the stock harness back in I didn't swap over the chunk of harness that has the starter relay and connection to the positive side of the battery. Didn't think much of it.... BUT.... this peice also has the PGM-FI fuse in it on the stock harness and feeds power directly back to..... THE FUEL RELAY grrrr!!!

After head scratching and looking in all the wrong places for a long time I finally figured it out.... now I can get on with putting the bike together for it's first test run :D

Front brakes are still being bled..... once they are done and I've tidied everything up it will be time to give it a test :)

Here's the offending bit of wiring :)



Took it for a quick ride to check for issues... found a coolant hose I didn't have hooked up right.... figured out my mistake and fixed it tonight. Also wasn't shifting quite right so I made some adjustments to the shifter... will test out again.



Still working on the darn brakes.... might have to go buy one of those mityvac vacuum brake bleeders.

Thanks for the awesome thread! Great job I'm always super impressed by people who can do this type of thing themselves.

What do you think you are into it for at this point? For comparison sake, I just picked up an ex-AMA 2006 campaign race bike which I think I'll be into for about $4500 once I sell off the stuff I don't need (extra Penske Triple, Extra Traxxion Forks both setup for 200 lb) and go back through with a complete professional refresh including engine.

I've lost track at this point but I'd guestimate around $3500-$4000.

In the end it would have been cheaper to buy a track bike that was already done but then I'd miss out on all this fun haha It's easier to put it together bit by bit as well rather than coming up with all the cash at once.

Probably less expensive, but it'd be an awesome feeling to know you built it and have a better understanding of the bike

Cool, once again congrats it seems that either way comes up about the same $$ wise for those of us with the "ability" to turn any hour job in to 4+ hours! If you can DIY thats awesome, plus you learn so much in the process.

Will do for sure. Going to order a Mityvac brake bleeder tomorrow I think and then I should be able to get it all buttoned up. Will get some pics of it moving for sure :)

Mityvac brake bleeder arrived! Made bleeding the brakes a 15 minute job :)



Next up a quick test ride! Ran well, just went down the street and back. Still have a lot of adjustment in the levers, bars, shifter and brake to do so everything is comfortable.



Uh oh, pulled in and water was leaking like crazy.... checked it closer and it looks like the metal coolant pipe that goes across the front just behind the headers either cracked or was cracked already and it let go. Will need to replace that piece for sure. Hopefully it's not expensive.



One other issue I have is the oil pressure light won't go out... not sure if it's because I don't have oil pressure (I hope not) or because the sensor is not working or something else. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot it? (the manual calls for a Honda test tool that you hook up to the sensor location)

Well I think I figured out my oil pressure problem.... looks like they sold me the wrong oil filter! Should be a 15410-MCJ-000 or 003. Will take it back tomorrow and get the right ones. Hopefully that will be the end of the dreaded red light.



Also got my street bike washed up today... it was all full of bugs from a late night ride and looking horrible.

Wrong oil filter that seems to be the best possible outcome of that potential nightmare :-)

Well turns out it is the correct filter.... just the updated model number that has replaced the original filter #. I had the dealer double check and it is indeed correct.

So ya.... that sucks cause now I'm back to no oil pressure for an unknown reason. Drat.

Did you sort out your Oil pressure issue? Have you checked the sensor? I would probably start by testing and making sure the sensor has power to it with a multimeter. And then maybe a continuity check as well on the sensor itself?

My baby currently looks like yours did sitting on the table with just the engine it it. In the process of reshimming my exhaust valves. I bookmarked your build to use as helpful information.

Sensor checked as per the manual and it checks out.

I found a post on another forum with a guy who had a similar issue and it ended up being related to his coolant temp sensor of all things. I tested mine a few weeks ago and it did change the behaviour of the oil pressure light but I don't recall exactly how lol

Going to get back at it this month and see if I can track down the issue.

Did you ever sort the oil pressure & get it on track, Greg?

This build is being featured in the BikeBuilds.net directory here: '06 Track Bike
