cleaned up my shed and got things sorted ready to start on the frame

only thing that i have done so far before the Nov 1st start date was fit the swing arm, have the seat re covered, pulled the motor apart so i could send the barrels away to get the liners pressed out, test fit some bits and order lots of other bits.
I am doing the polar opposite of the other two entrants, i am doing a build that will take as much cash as i can realistically spend, and make no apologies for it :D

parts and bike as of today 3rd Nov

Hahaha, I really should stay away from the interweb, i now have a new shopping list of bits to go with the other engine upgrades
Looking at Yoshi stage 2 cams with yoshi valve springs and retainers (set of Kent SUZ1 cams now up for sale), APE stainless oversize valves and HD cam chain.

looks to be the same set up that SPS classic endurance race team use​​​​​​​ :D

Still on holiday in Cyprus, so no "WORK" done on bike, but still managing to buy bits to add to the build from the web. Found some of the calipers that I sent back for sale on Ebay, excellent condition and half the cost of new ones, also both calipers the same colour which is a bonus 🙂

I know it's not yet a "build" thread for real, I will get round to some work sometime in the very near future ( back from Cyprus on Sat)
In the meantime I have managed to spend lots more dosh and have ordered the Bits from my new shopping list.
now ordered,
Yoshimura st2 cams with yoshi springs and spring retainers.
APE S/steel oversize valves,
APE valve guides,
APE cam chain,
APE adjustable cam sprockets,
Valve stem oil seals,

Looking forward to getting started on the frame, although I am still waiting for the last main order bits to arrive (forks & shock) that I need to allow me to plan the bracing and mounting.

Changed my mind about the Brembo SBK discs! contacted WRS and asked if i could send them back and exchange for some "T" drive Pistabassa discs.

they are happy for the exchange, "T" drives now payed for and on order from Brembo :)

called into Racefit this afternoon, put order in for full Legend system, twin tank filler (with fitting, breather welding on, plate under tank welding & pingle adapter fitting)*and a Ti paddock stand.

Jon wanted the tank and offered to buy it off me! told him i wanted it modding, he said i was mad.

well every day is a skool day!!

purchased some pads for the P4 calipers, they are listed for both the P4 and GP4-RR calipers, so i assumed they would be ok for both,

Not so!!

when fitted to the GP4 calipers there is a very large gap between pad faces, no problem with fitting 7mm thick discs (Pistabassa's) but

when fitted to the P4's there was only 4mm between pad faces,* couldn't even fit a worn stock thickness disc,

so did some investigation and found out that Brembo do two different thickness of pads, stock fitment are 10mm+,* the other ones are 8mm thickness,

both to fit the same calipers, so i now know i need the 8mm pads for my P4 calipers.

other problem is the compound, so far i have found 3 types mentioned

1) Z01 race wet

2) Z03 Endurance

3) Z04 race

have sent messages to see what the best compound is for fast street riding, waiting now for an answer.*

managed to pull my finger out and actually do some work on the frame today! (given Yan enough of a head start :) )

cut and shaped front head stock bracing, made one of the shock mount braces too,

would have done more but i ran out of tube, i will order some more tonight.

Continued stripping the motor last night, got it down to the bottom end, then found i didnt have a clutch holding tool to fit the B12 Mk2 clutch!
that too had to be left on the bench unfinished, so i could get one ordered along with the bar i need for the frame bracing.
