Hey Dan, if that rgv had been in a vacuum bag and was such low mileage, why the rebuild?
I would have thought it would have been spotless.

It was lol. And it ran like a dream. It's the usual thing I wanted a Swantz Lucky Stripe Rep. I will probably spend the next 10 years building it, and then finally agree with you lol!

Basic answer is I want it like new.

Very nice.

However I wouldn't have resprayed the plastics. If they are only subject to 5000 miles then they must have be near mint and I don't think Suzuki make them anymore. I would have found a set of used and abuse plastics and sprayed them...

But out of interest Billet Power Valves, where from? And are you doing any other work to the engine?

The plastics weren't my cup of tea. They were purple. I don't intend selling the bike so I took the plunge. They look the bollox now, much more to my preference.

The billet valves were from the Sean at thetuningworks.com. I am also fitting Cougar cylinder heads, 470., silicon hose kit., 90, Top end replacment, 340, New Valves 460, Lomas Titanium Race system 700.

As you can see it has become a bit of a labour of love.
