update: got everything on it sorted and fixed and she's purring along nicely.  taking her on short spins while I break it in.  Still not a 100% certain on what year it is, but I got it registered as a 78.  allowed me to avoid having a title and actually get one on it (in GA).  wether or not it is....who knows.

LOL. Can't be a 1970's bike as production of the MT11 didn't start until at least 1984, and some sources state 1987.

That's all bye the bye now. Congratulations on getting it sorted and I hope you have many happy hours together. They are Fun with a capital F. Enjoy.

granted, thats considering its 100% a MT11...which I dont doubt, but they didn't doubt me telling them what i told them and titling it/insuring it etc.  its got a fresh new tag on it and its road worthy so I dont care ;)  Some people said it could be as new as 2000ish and theres no way I'd get a title if that were the case.

also, i know we talked about trying to date this bike.  I posted some pics, is there anything else i could post to help?  I'd like to nail it down closer to a true date within 5 years.

I still think it is a post 2000 bike but that only matters in a couple of ways. All the parts are MT11 as far as I could see.

Whether your bike was built in 1984 or 2011 does not make any difference as most parts are interchangeable and didn't alter much over the production period. Your crankshaft and timing case area is different from most of production and cranks are specific to the types of engine ( with/without oil filter) if you ever need to replace it you will have to remember that as the later engines like yours were too new to appear in most of the parts books.

You have a title now, that's the very important bit, just enjoy the bike.

Very well done on sorting it.
