My how almost four years fly by when you’re hiding a project under a blanket. I really need to read through my own thread and figure out exactly what I’ve covered and where I left off.

I got tired of moving it around and got some time freed up from working on other people’s bikes so time to get back on it. I have been collecting parts since the last update and been daydreaming/scheming on how I want the final product to look like.

Sebspeed put in way too much work (which I greatly appreciate) shortening and threading a Triumph axle for use with a Ducati 916 rim. Using the Triumph eccentric and newer SpeedTriple rotor, I’m able to reuse my custom Brembo caliper bracket. Both the Vfr and Triumph sprocket hub fit but the Triumph unit seems to keep the chain line straight when I have a 3/8” offset front sprocket.

Mounted up a mock-up tire using the zip-tire method. First time trying it and it took 10-15 mins if that. Not sure how removing a tire will be though.






I have bike building ADD and jump from task to task. After the rear I bounced up to the front again. I wasn’t feeling my attempt at a front fairing bracket so I bought a 84-85 piece as it’s different from the 83 and will work better for me.

Kept my attention on the front fairing. I detabbed the fairing stay and zip-tied a couple things into place. Also working on a dash layout.

I’ve been working on the Gpz when I have the spare time. I noticed while rolling it around some thuds from the back wheel. I thought it might the valve stem hitting the caliper like the VFR wheel did with my custom caliper bracket. (I solved that by buying a Brembo caliper with the ports on the side rather than the top.)

I was wrong....





I have a plan but for now at least it still looks cool!

Plenty of meat on that caliper. Shave it down and maybe knock the lettering off the wheel?

I became tired of dealing with the rear wheel and brake so I turned my attention back to the front.

Managed to figure out a mounting setup for the Earl’s oil cooler. The cooler I’ve finally settled on doesn’t have the tabs like most. Figuring out how to mount it vertically and keep the package small (the cooler is 7x3x2) was a pain. I think I got it though. I ended up making the upper mounting tabs that weld onto the fairing stay too short so I have to remake those.

Went about trying to finalize a headlight mounting configuration. I used a piece of 1/4” round rod tacked on so the it could be relatively easily bent to finalize a location and set the beam where I want it. (You can also see I made new oil cooler mountain tabs and have them tacked on as well.)

are you putting holes in the fairing to feed the cooler air?

Yessir! A few posts of mine ago, I showed a pic of the front fairing with a piece of perforated plate taped to it. I’ll be making a hole the same approximate size as the cooler’s core and cover it with the plate. Then I’ll make a duct somehow to connect the opening to the cooler.

I’m going for something like this but with a vertical opening offset to the left, obviously.
