So far to get it running has cost as follows (pretty much everything sourced from ebay):
Replacement air box and air filter as old one was damaged - £30
Wiring loom x2, both were bought with a degree of damage such as connectors missing / corroded wires etc so had to strip them both back and make one good loom from the pair - £60 total for both looms plus approx an extra £10 for heatshrink/solder/tape etc
Carb inlet rubbers £20
handle bar controls (kill switch, indicators, lights etc) - £25
Starter relay - £27
Oil, filter & spark plug - £33
In the end i managed to charge the battery ok. Charged it overnight in the house instead of the cold garage and it seems to be holding a charge ok so didnt need a new battery.
So, in total to get the bike to a stage where it now runs has cost a total of £205, plus the £250 purchase price brings it to a total of £455 so far.
However...its still a long way off being ready for an MOT yet, not least of all as it needs a new frame and I havent been able to source a frame with a V5 yet.
It also needs lights,(going to go for aftermarket parts rather than original Yam bits),indicators, new chain and sprockets, a silencer and the brake calipers completely overhauled so still a fair bit of work (and money!) to go yet but as i took a gamble in buying a non runner im really pleased now that ive at least got it to a stage where it runs so i know that the mechanicals are all fine and ive got the rest of the winter to hopefully source a frame and get the rest of the bits i need to get it roadworthy for sometime in the new year.
When I first bought the bike I had a budget in mind of £800 inc purchase price to get the bike roadworthy. Im not overly bothered about the cosmetics and am just going to paint the tank and plastics myself (satin black) so hopefully if I can eventually source a frame for a decent price then i should be able to come in somewhere around that mark. For the exhaust i'm considering just buying a cheap silencer from another bike and some flexi pipe and making up some brackets to make it fit (saw it done on another thread on here).
Im not after a show winning bike (although i do want it to look half decent), just a fun hack that i can sometimes do a bit of trail riding on as well as use during the winter while my ZX7R is tucked up in the garage and that if it gets dropped,scratched or dinged im not going to be too bothered about.
I know I could have probably bought a road worthy bike that didnt need much work for not much more than the finished cost of this one (or could I?) but I work offshore and do 4 weeks on and 4 weeks off and wanted a project that would give me something to do during the winter months when im not away at work and as the wife has a horse I have plenty of time to myself to tinker about with the bike during the day whilst she is at the stables.
So far ive really enjoyed getting stuck in and actually getting the bike to this stage so just have to hope that I can manage to source a frame now!!
