sooo, without actually cross-posting everything that's already been cross-posted so far i'll start the discussion:

i'm still trying to figure out how to make a seat work....after re-measuring i feel i would be better off making a seat to go with the KZ tail rather than buying the ebay special vietnamese seat cover/foam to cafe out the stock seat pan....

i can make the pan no problemo, but any ideas as where i get some firm seat foam??

also, i'm stalled on progress til tuesday at the earliest....waiting for a big shipment from economy cycle with tires/bearings etc. (haha, all the stuff i can't "make" or recycle)

also can't work on the rear shock placement just yet, the ebay shock i was sent was the wrong one, i bought an 08-09 R6 shock, they shipped out an '08 R6S and the reservoir was orientated differently, so it won't fit.

i wish i had a lathe so i could upsize the front wheel bearing pockets mself, but i'm going to have to go make friends with a local machinist for that.. also going to have to have a rotor spacer made...

speaking of the rotor spacer, would it be better to make the spacer and just use long bolts, or make the spacer bolt to the hub, and make the rotor bolt to the spacer like the automotive bolt pattern adapter/spacers?

RDs are great bikes and deserving of a modernization. Keep up the good work...... I'm following closely. especially the front end conversion ... might work well on my XS someday. Was there any difference in the length of the original RD forks and the new ones?

mocked up the forks.



not digging the tail today.

however, broke down the seat pan and took a powered filet knife to the foam.

The tail is fine, but can you lower the end of it down a little? I think it would look better.

Very few decent tires available for 18" wheels, and there will be less in the future.

That's the reason most of us convert from 18" wheels to 17s.

Good luck with the build!

haha, by most of us, you mean you smoker?

there is no way myself or this engine/frame combination will be able to outride the two commonly available 18 tires, and besides i think a 180/55-17 on the rear of a ~40hp bike is just silly.

Before you machine the wheel for different bearings, can you tell me what's in it now, & what size axle you're converting to?
