Greetings from me and Rusty Rita
Hey all, picked up an 87 interstate this weekend 32k for 1625. Haven't even had a chance to test the current stator, so it may be a-ok for now. Either way still planning to do the poorboy mod. Got a buttload to do before I get there though. Tires are ancient and shot. Forks don't have any oil in em. Yadda yadda

Wanted to ask, what is the general timeframe it takes to put one of these on? Presuming you don't puncture the radiator, snap something off in the block, have all the parts etc.


Since we all like looking at these things, here is Rita.

If you have all the parts you can do it in a day.
Take your time, if it takes a week it's all in a good cause right?
You could do with a manual.

Engine bolts...... lefty loosey.... righty tighty.

Plenty of wd40

When installing stuff I use easy off paste on nuts etc, will prevent extra rusting.

Change the front fork springs to progressive

The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.

Thanks. Yep got the manual.

I'm hoping to get her on the road fairly quick, and pop in the progressives as it gets colder. I love my burgman, but I want to ride the new girl before the ice shows up too.
Providing the stator isn't a pile of melted slag, same with the alt.

And then.... then the rust. groan.
