    Re: latest project - '87 FZR1000

    Thanks - that is part of what drew me to this. Hope I don't screw it up.

    New (Brembo) vs old front brake rotors... keeping with the gold theme I guess

    Now you have me thinking about new rotors....
    Those are really great looking!

    Re: latest project - '87 FZR1000

    Some progress this wknd, but I ended up with a slight dilemma.
    - Got the front & rear rims back, balanced and with new tires! (michelin PR3 - the rear is an odd-size so limits tires choices).
    - New brake rotors mounted (both Brembo)
    - Have front tire mounted...
    - New seals and pads in the ('03 R6S/compatible) rotors and soft-mounted those
    - slightly different shade of gold, but I think I can deal
    - Removed front/rear brake and clutch hoses
    - all date Jan/Feb 1987
    - and I rode it this way???
    - replaced master cylinders in front and rear brakes

    The issues is the clutch master cylinder. The part I ordered (2KW-W0099-00) doesn't fit, not even close. Upon further inspection, I have the right part, so - only conclusion I can come to is, this is NOT an 1987 cluster master cylinder assembly I have on here. Not quite sure how, or if I can, figure out what it really is. Thoughts on that? Or is my only real option to ebay the correct assembly, thus my cylinder-kit will then fit?

    That or replace the entire assembly with master for $125, part #1: https://www.partzilla.com/catalog/ya...ter-cylinder-2

    For piece of mind, a NEW complete assembly, no internal pitting, etc may be the way to go..

    That and you know it'll fit / function as designed for THAT bike.

    Re: latest project - '87 FZR1000

    I've seen many bikes 13-15y newer than yours looking much worse, so yours was definitely taken care of.

    If everything ends up like those freshly coated rims, it will look great!

    Always liked these vintage sport bikes...

    In reference to that clutch master cylinder. I know it's a long shot but I'm wondering if someone put a Suzuki master cylinder on it? The SV1000 uses a hydraulic clutch.

    My old Honda, (1985 ((totaled)) and 1986) VT1100's had hydraulic clutches way back then.

    Had many parts way ahead of it's time...

    Wondered about that. No visual clues currently on what it is, but I'll look again tonight. This was on a Sunday evening around 9pm, and I was kinda' dumbfounded... just did not see that coming.
