Well I’ve just purchased mine 7 days ago. The previous owner deferred a lot of maintenance so I have been catching up on that.

So far:
Wheels sanded and repainted.
New air and oil filters.
New brake and clutch fluid.
New brakes pads all around.
New Bridgestone Battlax T30 EVO’s.
New rear disc.
Brake pistons cleaned.
Chain and sprockets cleaned, degreased and lubed.
Bodywork removed and repainted stock metallic black.
New graphics ordered.
Fork oil changed.
Swingarm pivot regreased.
New brake levers.
Wheel bearings inspected.
90 deg valves stems installed.
Stator cover repainted.
Heated grips with built in LCD voltmeter.
New OEM key blanks ordered.
40mm lower foot pegs ordered.
Thorough clean and detail.

You've definitely been a busy little beaver! What's next?

Ride it before the weather turns. I’m on the western slopes of The Rocky Mountains, it shows up early.
Haha, yes, it does.

Hi Sikorsky,
Congratz on purchase. FYI if it's got the original exhaust you may not have enough clearance for 40mm drop. Some of us max out at 25mm/1" without aftermarket pipes. Worth a quick check just in case you need to tweak your order?

I've owned two identical 1997 blackbirds. The first one I got sideswiped on. Total loss, kept the bike, motor still ran.

Bough another identical bike that was actually assembled early in 1996 and sold in 1997. Took the 10k mile engine out of it, put the 30k mile motor in from the crashed bike.

The 30k motor I have done some work to.
+4 advance reluctor wheel
6Sigma jet kit
K&N
Delkevic tri oval with 4-1 header
Exhaust side porting
Single shim 0.008thick head gasket
Updated tensioner
Aluminum chain guard
Euro gearing (higher speeds)
Lots of arp fasteners
Removed center stand
