found out the blade battery is 8AH and the R1 is 12AH so does this mean the R1 will have better cranking amps? if so looks like i will be going for the R1

an 8 Amp hour battery will run for an hour powering 8 amps and the 12 will be able to power 12 amps for an hour. even so they could still have different amounts of cranking power.
it normally tells you (on car batteries)
12v... obviously
62AH,
A480, Cranking power

it's most likely that the R1 battery will have a slightly better cranking power having more amp hours but its not always the case.
tbh either battery will probably be ok .

That black connector is for the prop stand connection.

Looking good Clive.

Hi MB thanks, have just come in from the garage and sorry to say it cant be for the side stand as that has a green connector on it and connects under the seat next to the alternator connector in that clear plastic cover

Sorry Clive you're right the green connector is for the stand prop, the black on pre96 models was for the petrol pump and post 96 models did not have a pump.

That could be the speed senor but colour codes dont match.

Rear brake line arrived this morning, so had to have a go at fitting it. after seeing what cbrrrt did by threading it through the arm i thought i'd give it a go!. Took subframe off to make drilling the front end easier, took the shock off so i could use the holes either side of the shock to pull the line through easier, the hole job took about 2 hours suprised how easy it was to do. going to leave connecting the master cylinder until i've got the exhaust link pipe sorted as i don't want to cut it to short, got to leave enough slack to allow for suspension travel.





sorry about the picture quality, had to use my phone as camera's knackered.

Don't seem to have done a lot lately, just lack of time, but here's a few more





have got the subframe mounting brackets finished now and are all bolted in place.

Have also made a bracket to re-locate the ignition barrel and got it in place, had to move it as a mate is making me a new billet top yoke, so thats gonna make it easier to drill and fit the handlebar risers as it will be solid ally ( hopefully get it early part of this month )

Been thinking about the wiring, in particular the rectifier. As it's gotta be mounted on a flat metal surface i'm struggling to find one on the R1 subby as it's alot narrower than the blade one. This is where it mounts on the blade



So got thinking about this 'x' shaped brace



then thought of this



Then ended up with this. Result me thinks! As its copper it should also disipate the heat quickly

Have fitted cdi unit to top of centre cross member, now just got to cut & re-route the rest of the back section of the loom and buy and fit a battery. Then should be able to attack the front section of the loom

Replied to your PM mate. Make sure you have loads of metal/metal contact on reg/rec and add another earth wire direct to battery. Reg/rec runs very hot anyway so worth insulating from exhausts???

I like what you're doing with the rear brake line, that's looking very neat Smile

Regarding the reg/rec I do recall that when my bike was first built, when it still belonged to my mate Al, he just made up a bracket to mount it on and it burned out in no time so he welded a bit of 6mm ally into the subframe to mount it on and dissipate the heat sufficiently. How thick is the piece of copper you plan on using? What I'm thinking is that if it's not thick enough although it's a very conductive material over time the heating/cooling it will be subjected to will harden it so it may snap. Ally is actually nearly as good a heat conductor as copper and a piece of that, maybe 6 or 8mm thick might be better. If you wanted to be really flash and have access to a milling machine you could even make up a block of ally with cooling fins machined into one side that would do a good job of dealing with the heat, fit nicely into the space, and look very impressive too!

That front mudguard on mine was just an off-the-shelf thing that I bought online, can't for the life of me think who supplied it but it did come from the same place that supplied the carbon hugger.
