Initiate the full frame-down strip in order to get the bike ready to paint the swingarm and frame as well as grease all the chassis bearings, and do a valve adjustment with the motor on the table. (that should be fun).

Just to test out the bike (noticed some gasoline under the bike--overflow perhaps?), tried to start it--wanted to see if the carbs were acting funny.

Wow, no go. The bike started to turn over, then I hear a loud *clank* and it refuses to turn over.

I tried again several times, now all I hear is a quieter *clank*, followed by the lights dimming: the starter circuit is obviously charged, but the electric motor isn't moving.

*sigh* Looks like it's time to break out the tools again....
Be sure and check the crankcase for gas in the oil, if a float leaked it could
be hydra locked.???
Put the bike in gear, forced it to move forward a few feet, tried to start it again. No dice. Put the bike up for the night. Fast forward to 5 minutes ago: got on the bike, tried to start it....and it turned over!

I have no idea why....

While there get set of steering stops from DEcosse, they look better than door stops ;D
That is great race track on the wall :)

What?!? You don't like my doorstops? What is this DEcosse you speak of? I'm very interested.

I have no problem with your door stops, good idea :). I have seen people using toilet seat bumpers in same place ;D
DEcosse is screen name for guy that has those nice stops. See front end sticky, I have set of those and they are great. You can probably attach your door stops to them if they are sentimental value to you ;D
Seriously, he has nice solution that works and looks in place.

here, found it for you http://forum.svrider.com/showpost.php?p=1675272&postcount=1004

DEcosse (and Zoran) can come up with a solution for almost any problem. Trust me, he knows his stuff. I was conversing with him about doing a GSXR front end swap on my 1st gen and that is when he made the stops. Now, I just have to save $$ to do the front end swap. He can offer more technical advice than anyone I know. You won't regret reading his posts! ;D

If it were that easy and inexpensive (well, at a manufacturing level) to extract significant performance gains without affecting emissions, noise, etc, wouldn't the OEM's be doing it already?
