Given the expense and effort gone towards reducing unsprung weight with the titanium spindles, why put some of that weight back on with the paddock stand parts? It seems something of a retrograde step to me?...

wasnt all about reducing weight overall, but definitely was about the wheel spindle, i just did the rest at the same time.
saved a total of 3.07Lb so the addition of a few grams from the paddock stand lifters (which i wanted anyway) wont be a big deal.
i was wanting the Martek paddock stand lifters, but i think i will be saving weight/matching over them with the Gilles lifters when you see how "sturdy" the Martek ones are!!
if Mark sends me some i can always compare them for weight.

spent a little time shoving bits back together again to check fitment if new bits.

fitted wheel & swing arm spindle, fitted spot on. wheel still needs to move 5mm (machining of wheel spacer required) to the left for 100% wheel centering and sprocket/chain run.

had a test fit of m-unit and Ignitech, happy with their placement, fitted hose to catch tank breather outlet.

went to work on fitting the Gilles GP paddock stand lifters and crash bungs

made a cardboard template, transferred the dimensions onto a piece of 8mm alloy plate, which i have drilled and

ruff fitted, needs more shaping yet before being a full blown "pattern" for making out of some strong alloy, as the stuff i have used is soft as shite!!

then will get them anodized black to match the lifters.

slight bit more work done on the paddock stand lifter bracket, removed some metal, shaped a little more to the swing arm outline, smoothed off few of the edges.

need to do some radius work on couple of the corners yet.

but i think it is getting there *

having sat and thought about it, MDM was correct, the idea i was using was overly complicated, i needed to simplify things which would also make it neater, there was two ways to go.

1) drill swing arm and fit Gilles lifters

2) find some other lifters, that will fit the mountings on the swing arm!

I went for a look see on the web, found all sorts, but none seemed to fit the bill, then came across these fine lifters of rather good breeding and pedigree, they also have the same mounting hole center measurements as the holes on the swing arm. ordered a set but in black anodize.

see how we get on with these.

thanks to Nick at SPS (suzuki Performance Spares) for the swift service, i received the throttle spring that i needed to finish off the throttle conversion

on my TMR's.

just a few small things to do, like dust caps on the throttle bar end openings, throttle stop screw and "bench"balance.
