Well this is the official start of the build, and I would appreciate all comments, As this is my first real build, Yes I put my VS1400 together (check out My Photo). But it was nothing like this. i Saw the Ardcore sight and fell head over heels in love with the xs 650 and and had to have one. I found a guy who had a motor and we trade parts, i had a frontend he wanted, so i got the motor. Here are some pictures of what i have so far. As you can see I've painted the engine cas satin black, and I love the Ogbobber so i found a MRD fuel injection system ( thanks John At Jet Ski Haven)10827

Tell me you used a high heat paint? It will require more touch up as you go along if you didnt. Also just from my opinion i would have waited to save up for powdercoat with chrome accents as to not hinder with the anything that needed to be hooked back up again such as exhaust

yes I used high temp primer and high temp satin black. and I dont plan to have any chrome at all. but I hadn't planned on what I was doing with the exhaust. Any non chrome suggestions?.
