It is mostly covered, but it was painted white before, flaking, bubbling and looking terrible. I just wanted to get rid of the white paint. If the black paint flakes and stuff, than it will reveal black plastic underneath and be MUCH less noticeable.

Yeah plastics are from a newer model. The guy had them shoe laced to the bike, but while I was already welding the frame, I figured I'd throw in some custom mounts to keep the newer generation plastics. Anyways, I'm half way through this finals week, and haven't gotten much done. I got the front end assembled and airbox in, but that's about all I've had time for  :( I'm waiting to go pick up the crank bearings, but my car broke down (go figure). I'm also waiting on my wallet to regenerate money so I can buy a swing arm bearing kit, and then, aside from a top end, the bike will be (hopefully I don't stumble across anymore broken parts) done.

The plastics look like they are from a KTM to me...

Your good! They are from a ktm. Or at least the rear and front fender. The shrouds might be too.

Progress thus far:








All I need is the engine and the swing arm in there. I'm picking up the main bearings and seals and all the gaskets Friday and will hopefully have the bottom end reassembled and in the frame. I now need swing arm pivot bearings, and a top end kit. Oh and the rear fender is not mounted in the pics, I haven't picked the best looking angle for it to be mounted yet.

Yep shrouds as well, just cut off at the bottom.

The shrouds look a little iffy, but I'm to antsy to ride this thing, so I just wanna get it running and then I'll worry about ordering in stock shrouds or something.

Ran the vin through a decoder. The engine is infact a '93. I'll see if I can return the parts and swap them out for the correct ones. This SUCKS having my car broken down, it took me all week to get a ride to pick them up... To bad my bike isn't registered  :(

Alright, the correct bearings are in the freezer getting ready to be installed tonight. But now I am confused. The gasket that goes between the cases STILL doesn't match... The 94'-02' one didn't, and now the '93 and down doesn't. I'm tired of swapping parts, so I'm just going to use liquid gasket I guess... It odd because the inner clutch cover gasket lines up perfectly  ??? ??? Is it safe to use liquid gasket? I want to do this right, but it seems as though there is no gasket that can match these cases  :<img src=" title="Roll Eyes" class="smiley"> Anyways, I am hoping to get a hold of some liquid gasket and putting the bottom portion of the engine in tomorrow. All I'll be waiting on is the top end and some swing arm bearings and she'll be good to go. I'm kind of hoping this bike will turn out to be a good track bike handling wise. I like my YZ for the woods...

How doesn't fit? Screw holes don't line up, extends into the case or sticks out of the case?

Dark pic, but you can see it is way off...

Got the main bearings in no problem so far. The left side seal was rubbing up on the bearing causing friction, so I tried to push it out a little and ended up putting a hole in it  ><img src=" title="Angry" class="smiley"> Guess I'll be ordering one of those AGAIN...

Damn, that sucks. The other gasket fit just as bad? Problem with not having a gasket in there could cause a clearance issue, not to mention that's a lot of surface area to try to seal with a liquid gasket, any leaks in the crank area and you're scewed.

1990,91,92 use gasket 11482-28C01
93' gasket                     11481-28C00
94,95'                            11481-28E10
96',97',98                      11481-37E01

Not sure what gasket kits you are using but the gaskets don't match from 94'-02.

Have a look at this http://www.alpha-sports.com/suzuki_parts.htm  and check the pictures to find your year.
