    Default My restored and modified '94 600ss

    This is my first road bike and will forever be my favourite.

    I bought it not running from a farmer in 2017. How I brought it home



    With some fresh fuel, oil, timing belts I gave it a tickle and it fired right up.
    I then rode the wheels off it for 9 months or so





    I then had a break from tech school which enabled me to take it apart. The frame paint was thin and it had surface rust, so it needed a freshen up



    The frame was then blasted and powdercoated



    I had the fairings repainted, the wheels powdercoated and re-assembled it for a little bit

    Someone was then parting out a 1000ss, so I bought the forks (TiN coated, revalved, full adjustable), twin disc front brake setup (600ss was single disc) and Marchesini wheels.
    I fitted them, then buffed the fairings to smooth them and put the stickers on.
    I also fitted remote reservoir Brembo master cylinders for clutch and brake.









    It came together very nicely.
    I do have a Superlight replica tail section which I have to make the mounts for and paint.
    I will also do some power mods soon. I am not on my full licence yet so in this country I am restricted on what cc I can ride.

    Here it is at a pizza shop with my mrs' 998. The owner is bike mad and was so excited he named the new special after us. The "Salami V-Twin"

    Hallo.
    Nice little 600.
    Did that 5 spoke rear wheel fit between your swingarm?
    I always thought that swingarm of a 600 was narrower.

    The wheel itself is the same size, however the 1000ss sprocket carrier is larger. So I swapped the 600 carrier onto the new wheel and it fits perfectly

    Nice effort, sweet lil' ride.

    Thanks for the Okumura pic too, every time I see one of those stickers I think to myself "I gotta get me sum o' dat!"
