Hurricane fighter. Almost done for season cuz I wanna ride before winter. Basic black.
Have a few questions.. is there a tip over sensor for this year? And anyone found a convenient way to hide wiring without cutting?

This is how it started btw. Total crapfest

88 CBR 600. can't get to crank!!! Jumped the starter solonoid and it was able to crank, so I figured I needed a new solonoid. Well bought one and same thing?!?!?! No crank. So I figured its gotta be something small and stupid. I just can't think of what it is... Here's what I've checked!!

New battery
Key is good- fan turns on
Kill/run switch is good
Fuses good
In neutral

I can't think of anything else!.. I don't think I have a kickstand switch but who knows.. manual doesn't show. all help is appreciated

Sorry. Not much to update yet. Been working on small stuff... and realized my CCT is making some noise. Not too much so I'm gonna leave it be for a bit. Gotta take off front sprocket today ! OH is there a easy way to put the chain on without using the proper tool? I'm avoiding the shop as much as possible on this build because I'm tired of paying them money!


I wish I could throw up a video of how loud my bike really is. Just idling, people stare down the street at me. Ill post up a pic of the pipe in a sec.. never heard of it before

New chain almost on (also wish it wasn't gold, swore I ordered it black...) just waiting on front pads to arrive so I can take it for a run down the street!

Oh and here's my pipe... All it says is Supertrapp on the side. anyone seen these on a sportbike before? I think they are for cruisers but unsure. WAY TOO LOUD - complete pullover potential. Idk if that's because of the kind of pipe or just because the cap was cut off
