as with all things i get involved in, i have changes of mind that interrupt proceedings, My latest change of mind is whether to stay with the Supersport 34.5 depth discs or change them for the SBK 30mm discs that better match the race calipers??

I have sent a question off to WRS about wheel fitment, see what comes back

Tank is now in Customs clearing in the UK :)

WRS say SBK discs will fit no problem, so was considering sending the Supersport discs back and getting them exchanged, but then thought that i can always fit them to on of the GS's :thumbsup:
so might just order the SBK discs anyway :rock:

thought i would chase up the distributors/makers of the parts i still have on order, as i haven't had any contact from them for some time,

Performance Parts have just received my Gilles adjustable rear sets, so i have payed for them and they are in the post soonest,

BikeHPS are sorry but when they contacted Braketech a couple of days ago they got the usual story of "just about to do a batch" not a lot different to when i last got a rear disc from

Braketech then!!!

Warp speed Racing have received my block and pistons (main thing i was worried about), they are behind doing some engines they have on order, but will be doing mine soon(ish)

Mick Gardner Racing have forks done and are just waiting on a part to finish off the shock, should be ready for next week
Things are still moving along​​​​​​​

as the bearings and holder nuts came through the post, i did a test fit of the yokes, happy with it so far, need to do some small adjustments

and might need a thinner bearing seat washer, but not wanting to remove the bottom bearing in case i cause the bottom yoke any damage

Brilliant fast service from SPS, ordered yesterday, received this morning, now fitted*



fitted the crank cases together to do a gear box test, all good, so back apart tonight for some case sealant and re assemble and torque up.

wasnt sure if i had enough or the correct length of bolts required to fit all the engine covers/sump/generator.

so test fit was called for, found out which bolts were in need of ordering. now ordered.
