I bought that bike about ten yrs ago for next to nothing in dusty, non running original standard condition. I replaced no hard parts- this is how it cleaned up. It did not have a mark on it. Wish I still had it

Some genius dropped off a GPZ750 Turbo ENGINE to have us put a new top end on it. He supplied the brand new Wiseco 12.5:1 pistons for it.

The few time I have permitted customers to drag their own parts in, they always fuck it up and bring the wrong shit. Just tell him to use Nitromethane.
With the 12:1's and Turbo? Youtube star in the making.

I get dumb asses dragging in cylinder and pistons all the time that don't work because they thought they knew something. But this is top ten.

That's the water cooled breaker box I installed in my garage. The mud daubers were kind enough to cover the wire junction in the box.

Zero grounding Good lord where do you begin?

way too small gauge wire some look burnt
mudndaubers
wire nuts

fucked up color coding

common neutral bus with hot wires appearing to come from it

water of course

unprotected wires running external to the box

looks like they took a branch circuit and Divided it up into 5 new circuits with way inappropriate breakers.

Cables not secured within 6” of box entry

wires running out of box but it protected by gland nuts or connectors

Zero grounding/bonding

That is the exact engine we had on our washing machine growing up. When I was about 10 I made a minibike from wood scraps from my grandfathers cabinet shop and I would take the engine off the washing machine and bomb the dirt roads around town on it. One time I took the engine and my mom wanted to do laundry, When I got back she kicked my ass for playing around with her stuff.

Back when washing machines had kick starters!
