Cheers Bill, Mmmm that is one of my forthcoming worries! that I may be apprehensive about riding in the manner that it should be ridden for fear of binning it and wrecking it!!

No point in hanging around mate summer is almost upon us Smile

Bit of news thats going to slow the process though! the Ohlins shock I bought was for an earlier model so it's too long!! manage to fiddle with the plates to get it lower but not low enough as the back wheel still touches the evo bellypan :( so on the hunt fo another Ohlins shock for my model.

On the upside hooked up the stack clocks and fitted the airbox properly, believe it or not the carbs and coils fit inside the airbox! I was puzzleing myself as to how it fits thinking like normal bikes the airbox goes on the back of the carbs, after sending some update pics to the previous owner (because he wants to see the finished product when done) he remembered that the airbox bottom went on first then carbs and coils inside and finally the lid goes on, with all this done I fired it up again and the stack clocks work a treat the engine revs beutifully and the new yoshi system sound awsome Smile

All I have to find now is the following:

Fuel pump from early model
1.5 inch carbon box section to fit the switches for the stack clocks in
53mm clip ons
another ohlins shock (or similar)
a few fasteners for this that and the other.

and it's off to the MOT station we go Smile

Cheers

Well guys were getting there, tried the bike today with the fuel pump I bought and all seems well, could do with making the tap a free flow on, res and off though rather than vacuum controlled as it takes a little feather of the throttle to start it due to the fuel tap needing vac to feed the fuel, didn't fit the flatslides today as I want to send them into allens to get a tps fitted to them.

Couple of updayed pics:



And a video of the first test run without fairing fitted:

Thanks guys, just a few more little but niggly jobs to do then it's off for MOT, don't think I'll be able to make Blade day though as I'm already going down that end of the country on the 9th July for an annual rally that I attend near Wishbourough Green.

Well blew the budget again! couldn't find an ohlins s/h shock anywhere (as the previous one I bought was for an earlier model!) so sold that and made a profit on it, have ordered one of these:



I really wanted to stick with the original type spec of the Evo but new ohlins were just far too expensive a luxury for just a road going replica.

Think it's a bit like Ohlins mate and they use the spring colour as there trademark/identity not overly keen on the spring colour myself but will probably change the colour in the winter when it comes off the road for tuning (just want to get it finished and ride it for now Smile )

That's a shame because i don't think there will be an Evo (copy or not) at Blade day, so what kinda rally is at Wishbourough? That's only 45mins down the road.

Made the bracket to hold the buttons that control the features of the stack clocks today as I didn't get one with the bike just the carbon clock surround, made it from 25mm box section alloy with square plastic end finishers/plugs (not done a pic yet) but the original Evo Blade looks like this:



3 buttons but they look a bit far apart for me so on mine I've put one in the centre and the other 2 central to the l and r gaps (if you get my meaning!)

Kaiser that one in the pic above is the genuine Evo Blade set up, this is my interpretation of it below:


Now to decide whether to polish, paint or carbon cover it???
