I got it home and looked everything over and it is surprisingly good shape. Flushed injectors and it seems to be running good, needs new fuel and oil lines. So it looks like just some maintenance stuff, tires, fuel and air filters, oil change.

I am debating if I want to paint it. Paint looks to be polishing up OK, so other than some clear coat issues on the left side of the tank, it looks pretty good, I'm kinda digging the character of the little nicks and dings. I may try to carefully repair that without getting into the base paint. Engine needs paint as most of it has faded to nothing on top. I'll likely remove the rear suspension, clean and grease everything. Same for the front.

Here are some pics after a little rubbing:

A belated welcome to the forum Russ! Looks like you picked up a fine example. Have you ridden it yet?
First to 200mph (2006) and still the fastest (211mph)

I've been quietly working on the project off and on for the last few months, but with spring, I need to get it done so I can get it on the road.

So far:
Engine disassembled, cleaned, resealed, and painted
oil pan mods
clutch damper replacement
installed zr7s oil pump and pressure relief valve
turbo rebuild by Charlie with the billet compressor wheel
new chain and sprockets
rebuilt brakes
rebuilt forks including anti-dive assemblies
new Michelins
painted rear wheel, still need to do the front
painted all of the tins (plastic in this case)

Needed to finish:
re-assemble body work,tank,
fix fuel petcock (got the wrong part, waiting on new oring
small oil leak on lower sump pan (BTW, square section oring from McMaster Carr does not work)
Get it tagged and ride it

Will post pics soon.

I think Charlie has the O rings?

Did you ever find the correct oring for the petcock? I am in need of one now as well.

Thanks,
Rob

I did get the correct kit, but I can't find the info on it. I likely got it off of ebay. Sorry I'm not more help.
