Re-doing everything electrical....

From the bucket to the controls, everything. New Reg/Rect, coils. New blade style fuse box. Should of done it last year.

MAYBE, just MAYBE. I'll get to ride it more than 1 mile. Last time I actually rode it was in April. Fucking April.

Got her torn apart, somewhat.

Sad, I just now feel like working on it. By the time I get my parts I'll be leaving on our cruise. Won't be middle of Sept. that it may be done. Looks like I'll be riding in cold weather this winter to make up for summer.

Waiting on the following:

33mm Black Clip Ons
New 7" Headlight & Bucket and new black ears
Oregon Motorcycle Parts Reg/Rect and fuse box
New Handlebar left side controls



Also going to either run a push button start somewhere under the tank, under the seat. Or re-locate the stock switch.

Not much. Just torn down a little more

Can't wait to get rid of the mess of wires. Going to solder all terminals/heat shrink and wrap everything in a nice sheathing.



Engine out





Items to be polished, painted or pc'd

Im just gonna leave that here... Any updates? I've been watching this to see where you ended up going with it and it's seemed to come to a slow.. NICE BIKE BY THE WAY

You seem to be doing some awesome work thats just slightly misguided. No disrespect intended, I really like where your going with this. BUT, you should spend some time or heck even sign up if you really like the "cafe style".. The plethora of information/knowledgeable guys on this board will turn your idea of what makes a "cafe" around.

Please post up your project in there!! ask questions, take advice for what it is, don't get offended when 10 senior members say something rude...they have very blunt senses of humor, but the knowledge is second to none!

AGAIN I REALLY like where your headed man and i think that site i posted could be your new favorite forum if you can take constructive criticism. And if you don't sign up and keep on doing it your way more power to ya! After all it is YOUR project!

Good luck! Keep us updated either way!

Been there many times. Lurk there almost every day along with www.dotheton.com and the kz forums.

My build is a mix of all types. More Brat Style, little tracker. Just doing things I feel see fit. I know a true Cafe' is not my bike....this KZ440 doesn't make a good build IMO. But I'm making it work.

Hopefully this year I'll have it done Spare time for me is rare, I'm anal so it takes me much longer.

I do have some updates.

Got some parts to go on
Starting my new wiring harness
Starting my frame- Cutting off the seat hinges, cleaning up area's where I de-tabbed
Then assembly. Will still need a few bits once I get it a roller. Stainless brake line, new cables

How much work do you have left before you can get it on the road?

Too much

-Frame- clean, prep and paint
-Build new brat style seat pan and have it upholstered
-Re-Assembly with new parts; Brakes, lights, everything else
-Re-wire new controls into new harness

Doesn't sound like much.

Very nice, glad to hear it's slowly coming along. And the one main reason i posted that was your doing all this hard work and no where did i see plans to change the stock pegs. A cafe bike needs rear sets! Love it regardless man, its gonna look good!

Thanks. It has been in my mind to change them out. I may even grab some GSXR or CBR rear sets. As you already know there are many vendors who offer a diy kit with nice parts. Plans can always change.

Rear sets suck. Trust me I had them on my RZ350 and it was impossible to ride after 15-20 minutes. Keep the stock pegs for now.

haha ya but he said he's going with clip ons.. thats not going to be very comfortable anyways! Well see how long the clip on last lol youll prolly end up switching bars and pegs a couple times until you find a perfect setup! But i agree if you want a comfortable riding position, that you can cruise around on for hours, forget clip ons and rear sets.

I kept my clip ons for right now as they aren't too bad, but I have set of used handlebars to put on.

I've ran clubmans, euro bars up-right and flipped. All were decent positions and didn't bother me. Even after extended rides.

Nothing to report really.

Did a spring cleaning on my garage, rolled her outside in the sun. With vacation and travel coming up for work not much time in April.

Not much to report. Not having a lot of time for fab work really sucks. I still need to cut out the metal for my box and tray then have it tig welded together. Will be out of aluminum and will have a brushed look to it.

After that it's finish painting the frame, run my new harness + wiring, new seat pan/upholstery and final assembly. Doesn't seem like much left.

Battery box aluminum cut out. Little trimming up to make everything square and off it goes to be tig welded. Then the tray


Untitled by cafnbratkz440, on Flickr


Untitled by cafnbratkz440, on Flickr

Cleaned up the hub sprocket. Used degresor, wire brush and lots of elbow grease. Started to sand the texture out of the aluminum. Thought about polishing it. But with the color combo decided it needed to be black like the rims. So smoothed it out, sand, prep and ready for a few coats of etching primer. Then several coats of the the DupliColor Wheel Paint.

First light coat of etch, few more and one heavy next

Yes, shoes still in there are the old ones. New shoes to be installed later


Untitled by cafnbratkz440, on Flickr

Wheels after deep clean and paint prep. Really didn't want to break them down again. Took my time on masking them up.

Rear is ready for clear. Pictures to follow
