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
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
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.
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.
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.
