The basic idea is this but it'll get changed a bit for the final seat unit, lights are going and a racefit Zorst system I think.

Yes front lights going too, looking at a race day R6 fairing but will worry about that when the back end is done.

Did you have a look at that Aprillia one in the loft GB. It has three headlights would make your HID look like they ran on parafin

What's required to fit the oz aprillia front wheel, have you used aprillia disks or do the cbr ones fit? Did you have to change internal collars and bearings also? Also do you know the weight of the front wheel before disks/ tyres? Sorry lots of questions Smile
