Other YZ426 Build

I just could not get a break from broken bolts, thanks a lot factory lock tight....

Broke this sucker off even though I used a manual impact with the Philips bit. The threads were all junked. Anyways the head ended up breaking off and luckily this time just used pliers and Hercules strength :D

Then chased the threads with a tap and oil

Cleaned out the engine case and smacked out the bearings, the crank bearing is incredibly tight even with a propane torch. One side is ready for new bearings the other sucks and has one stupid blind bearing I can't remove cause I don't have a slide hammer/bits.... Looks like Itl be a day or so before I go to the shop n get that pulled out.

Also sand blasted my header, muffler, exhaust pipe and heat guard. The new high heat paint (2000 degree resistance) is coming in the mail around Friday) painting it all flat aluminum color with the guard being black.

The covers came out better then i planned I was really happy to see how the pro circuit cover came out. I prep sanded it alot, did three coats of primer, 3 coats of black, and took a tiny wire wheel on a dremmel and by hand ran it over the lettering to rip the paint and primer off and shine it up, looks just like I had hoped! :)

The clutch Cover also looks Great! for this one I also did sanding, 3 coats of primer and black, and then took a tiny paint brush and by sprayed the blue into a cap and hand painted in the lettering and even the magnesium part :wink: 3 coats of blue, it came out well but the paint i used wasnt light enough... i like the look but I was hoping it would "pop" more, i tryed matching the bike's frame paint wich it matched untill i put the matte clear coat on to seal it... it took away any shine and dulled the finish more then i exspected, oh well it still does look cool! :) specially out in the sunlight!
