Lost my job today so I was back at home for 8:10am, got the frame and subframe and bolted them together.


Since today is my mum's day off work we sorted out the back end of the shed (her things) and that took most of the day. Managed to move some of my stuff to make better space too.

Managed to finally get my vfr frame into the shed onto a bench that hasn't been free in months, just gave it a quick wipe down with some TFR. Somewhat mocked up the swingarm and it needs a bit of trimming to make it fit the frame - not much but it does a tiny bit.






Oh and I bled through the front calipers and mastercylinder with new brake fluid.

I used some alu tube to make spacers for my front axle... 25x35 sounds familiar, I can check what I have left over. You need about 50ml of spacing total?

Sorry about the job, hope you get something else fairly quick.

Thanks cookie, I'm back working at the biker cafe (route 59). I worked here before I worked at the butchers.

Thanks for the offer of the tube but yantosh is sorting me out with them ( I dont have access to a lathe)

Done a tonne of cleaning of parts today as well as measuring up, good and bad news... atleast for me. Might be needing custom yokes unless I can manage to somehow claim back a few extra mm on the front.

To claim back a few mm (I'm thinking of spacing out the front discs which is less than ideal, or somehow finding some discs that have the same bolt pattern and pitch but I've got no idea where to start looking this up. Discuss pro's and cons with that please. I think custom yokes will cost more than new discs?

Here is a photo of the mocked up rear end that I took before the build off (thanks to Cookie and his thread for the details)


I wasn't happy with how rusty the rear nut, axle and rear disc looked - also a pre-build off photo


Video won't embed so here is the link https://1drv.ms/v/s!ArP4grxhMWOpnhO3YhlTyi8c1GV0

I started with cleaning up the nut, look at them bubbles go (and that is real time as you can also hear from the song)




A bit better than before




Still not 100% happy with it but it's much much better than what it was, just the inside of the axle letting it down now.



So onto the front end... The axle bolt came today



fitted the axle bolt and pumped out the pistons in the calipers to make sure they were centered and on the disc correctly.


Poor photo but this shows that I need a 5mm spacer for the caliper to clear the disc.


And this one shows how much of the spacer needs to have removed to get the alignment correct. 4mm


With the current spacing I'm roughly at 204mm but to get the alignment correct for the disc I lose 8mm, putting me down to 196mm and there isn't any yokes with that eye to eye distance. Lowest I can find is 204 (08-10 cbr1000rr) so it's either spacing out the discs, somehow finding some offset discs or buying some custom yokes.


Here is a load of measurements for the rc24 frame, axle points, swing arm pins ect.I don't want to clutter them all on the thread as they're kinda irrelevant for now - that and this thread isn't lacking in other photos

This website can help you search for discs by bolt pattern etc, but also, handily, offset:

Thanks cookie Rep'd for that. Turns out they don't even have my size as a standard disc but always handy to know.

Turns out... don't do measuring when you've got a headache and you're very tired. Measured up the front end wrong yesterday.


I've remeasured it this morning and with the custom front spacers come the fork eye to eye should be 204mm, meaning I won't be needing offset discs and that the cbr1000rr yokes (or any 204mm yokes) should fit.

It's the radial caliper to disc offset that I'm trying to correct enough to keep the disc off the calliper body.

Just been speaking to Yorkshiregooner and he says that the Gen 3 and Gen 4 cbr1000rr yokes are the same dimensions meaning the 2008-2016 yokes are all interchangeable with each other. So I'm picking them up on Sunday at a bargain price too!

Picked up some cbr1000rr yokes this evening for a bargain price, went to meet the guy instead of getting him to post them (making connections) even though it for me about 7 in fuel and 2 hours of time. He also pressed out the stem for me so I can just get mine pressed in.

I was in a bit of a rush so no photos of them loose but here is them mounted to the top of the forks, I could have got some suzuki parts but urm... suzuki... Moving on Loving the look of these.




I did some measuring and some remeasuring and got the spacer sizes figured out. They're not exactly ideal for the caliper alignment but it's close enough and besides the pistons can take up the extra few mm.

Between the bottom of the forks there is 160mm of space. The wheel with bearings is 107mm, this leaves me with 53mm of space. I need x2 spacers so it means each spacers will need to be 26.5mm

Noob question incoming....
With the read end, should I align the swingarm for the best chain alignment or the best shock alignment, or best wheel alignment?
