    750sx Barn Find

    Saturday while on the lake I was visiting one of my neighbors and long time friend. He advised me that one of our mutual friends had an unknown make, model, year stand-up sitting in a barn. Yes, yes I did send him a message that night asking when he could meet up. Sight unseen I hitched up my trailer and headed back down to the lake. I found a '92 Kawasaki 750sx sitting on the red Alabama clay / dirt floor of a tin barn. After a short conversation of catching up I was on my way to storage. I can't find any registration on the hull, maybe it was under the red hood... I did very little with it but its at least a few steps closer to living again.

    Nice Jet Dynamics ride plate. What are your plans with this.... build it - or - part it?
    Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    Hey BL, planning on building it. For a price of $0 investment so far I think I'm already ahead. The end goal is a RN SuperJet. So I can build this, play with it and have a good return on investment when I do sell. I have an engine on the way now. Hope you are well!

    Re: 750sx Barn Find

    The end of August is upon us. The temps have shown indications that cool weather is coming. Here in Alabama 90s are still sticking around but there was a week of 80s with nice cool mornings. What has been getting my attention lately? Some of you are familiar with my other build threads. The answer is simply nothing has been getting my attention. School (college) has returned session, and that has been where the majority of my time has been spent. I have also invested in a 3-D printer which takes a varying amount of tinkering model depending.

    So what has been done you might be asking? You last saw the 750sx in a very dirty state of being. It has since been cleaned up with a washing and internal hull cleaning. Additionally, I have taken note of the parts and hardware that I have. I picked up a full engine package from New Mexico, it was a little pricey but it should prevent me from having to parts hunt (I'll pay more for less hassle). Other than those notes everything is the same. More parts will be sourced and I aim to get this thing into my legal ownership since it seems subject to abandonment.

    I opened up the engine box a little more to reveal some goodies. Here's what I found. I have no ebox, I will have to find a clean way to mount it all.

    Re: 750sx Barn Find

    In the past month, little work has taken place. I ordered a reduction and steering nozzle to complete the pump. At this time, I need to sandblast a few parts so that I can throw them in. One being the bedplate... I think. And a few other items need to be figured out such as sourcing a start-stop switch. This is a weird one because its running 650 electrics, and I honestly don't know anything about them. After that, a throttle lever will be required. Then it can go together. Exciting stuff here. Pictures to come soon, the SJ build is distracting, both need love.
