Weekend update: 5/15/09
Hope it is ok that I start this thread this week, w/rpm500.
The reason I am going ahead and starting this, is that I am outta here for a good week or so. I am off to the mountains and may not have Net service, not sure yet. I am taking my laptop anyway.
So here is what I will get done on my skis........ ______________. Nothing!
Instead I will be all alone in a big house, no wife, no GF , no people to bother me. Just a cat and a dog. Well them and my one toy, my Raptor 700R. Not stock mind you, but also still very reliable.
So go ahead guy, and gals, and tell us all what is going on. Please get some work done for me......as I will have a drink for you all.
Enjoy your weekends!

glad someone else thought it was worthy
bolted a sbn on to the red wr.. scraped off the old mats..repainted the handlebar pad red,to match the seat,hand grips and original red 1988 stripes ( its got a funky dated look now ) 89/ black trim replaced the 88's gray stuff (it was just to weathered to save)
hung the extended plate and a dg grate on this.. found a nos ocean pro vortec f/a for the 34/28 sbn..
I will cut open a cdi this week and try to install that LIMITER upgrade as they show it done on x-h2o's tech section.
hopefully it should be a fun ride with the cylinder and case porting ..
parts so far installed -protec pipe,milled o/e head, tdr reeds, scat ss impeller, grate, plate, bored nozzel, cone extender, f/a..
in the next week... the expected cdi mod and then slap on the hull reg.#'s and give it run.
Have the nos riva(advent) cdi for the gp760.. bruce at riva is going to try to find the specs/capabilitys of this unit for me in reguards to its giving additional advance at the higher rpms???..that's about it for parts needed on the gp.. must set aside time to do it up..(have too many projects under way right now!!, clearing them out)

Sure do,,,, like to follow the progress of others and what they are up to.
As can be seen, I have NET service. Good thing too as it is raining here just like at home.
I do have one thing I could update, got a gasket set, 2 new pissers, and a few other small items in the mail yesterday.
