Cheers Lambchops, had a look at your build, impressed with the 800 arm, alot more involved than the 750. So thats an R1 rear ohlins? didn't realise they fitted. look forward to more pics. Say 'hello' in the new members section there's some great people on here.

Yeah 800 arm is more work but I hope its going to be worth it in the end, the r1 shock was another gamble I hope is going to work, it wouldnt clear the subframe but as im fitting a gsxr k3 rear undertray Im sure I can make it work with some mods Smile

Hi anyone know if this will fit the rrw forks? will the rrw discs work? thought 3 spoke would look good with the vfr rear wheel

How did you do the rear brake line Clive as the hole doesnt look big enough to fit the banjo through? Do you have an end to make yourself?

It was suprising easy to do mate. Got the line ( 1200mm) to be on the safe side from a company called Venhill, got them to fit the caliper end banjo fitting but leave the m/c end off,( its a compression fitting so pretty straightforward to fit). Took out the stub axle & hub then drilled the arm through the raised 'square' at the back (caliper end) ( as in pic) then took the shock off so i could get into the holes inside the arm where the shock fits. got some elec cable and pushed it into the hole i drilled at the back and started to push it through the arm untill it came out the hole on the inside of the shock, then drilled the front of the arm ( as in pic) then the fiddly bit was getting the wire round th inside of the shock mounting hole and out the new small hole i'd drilled, once it was out i then taped the m/c end of the brake line (end without fitting on) to the elec cable and slowly pulled it through, pushing the brake line at the same time until it eventually came out. I have left the cylinder end long until i get the exhaust link pipe made so it doesn't rub or i cock up and cut it to short I think it only took a couple of hours max to do but am pleased with the result. To be honest i 'borrowed' the idea from a guy called cbrrrt who has influenced me alot with this build, feel free to ask more if the above is as 'clear as mud'

No idea about the mot ! guess i'll find out when i eventually get it there As for the grommit, the brake line came with 3 rubbers on it, i suppose to hold it in place in clips, but as i didn't need them i pulled them of the bare end and cut 1 in half, bingo 2 grommits!

This is how i found the RRW looking very sorry for itself !!!
This is more or less what it looked like apart from no tail plasics,exhuast or front discs.
That was 12 months ago, so its getting there.

Done a bit more today,

Click here to view the original image of 800x600px and 205KB.

decided i need to cover the gap between the R1 tail plastics and the frame, so i found some old perspex and made this

Click here to view the original image of 800x600px and 349KB.

Then with a hot air gun did this

Click here to view the original image of 800x600px and 238KB.

and ended up with this

Click here to view the original image of 800x600px and 245KB.

Then had a go at fibreglassing, think its the first time since i left school:Embarassed



Click here to view the original image of 800x600px and 364KB.

have to see what happens when it sets!!. plan is to go over it with filler and smooth it into the original tail section. Have done both sides now so hopefully tomorrow i can get the filler on

Quite pleased with how its looking for a 1st time attempt at anything like this. Not sure yet about the front end where it meets the tank but its deffinately nearer than before i started. Need to get some more foam to cover the front sides i've extended, then think about re-covering it, whether i have a go myself or take it somewhere & get it done professionally. got the original off in one piece but have either got to make a complete new one or extend it to cover the longer sides and where it meets the tank. Hopefully get it sanded and fitting better 2moro

Looking at the kits available on ebay approx £60-£80 inc shipping found this site

http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Custom-Exhaust-Parts?_trksid=p4340.l2563

Got me 1mtr length for £18 inc post.



going to re-use the original wadding
