Tried to make new brackets for the sub frame with the alloy i bought..

But it sucks dont having a column drill? Dont know if thats the Word.. But a drill when you want it to be really straight:/. And cuting the roundbar alloy to small distances isn't easy with a grinder :/ but fuck it no body gonna see the brackets when i'm done anyway..

Had the perfect friday yesterday
Got My rim with the mail, bought some beer and spent the evening in the garage:)


Like i said before it sucks dont having a bandsaw and a drill press. But i manage to do some good work with my lovely grinder and drillmachine:) im very satisfied with the brakets for the subframe. Only need some fine tuning and then powder coating.

Subframe mounted




Cutted down my leo vince slip on thinking about mount it under de tail.. But Done know yet, maybe its to close to the wheel. And i have to cut of end pipe and have it welded in the right position.








Testfitted the rim and and My radial calipers




The rim has a little crack but i got it for a good price so i can get it fixed later

Subframe mounts look good. You've got a vote from me for the undertail exhaust, looks like the clearance is fine to me

I took messaurments on my friends real cbr 1000 rr and hes bike got much more clearence between the tail and exhaust, i tried to tilt my tail so i hade de same distance like he has but it was whey to high. A nutcrusher for real :)
But i think i will try with an undertail exhaust it looks much bettter.. The thing is im using original swing arm so i have to place it in the hole where the rear shock goes. But iv'e seen it on other bikes so i dont think thats gonna be an issue.

Got some more work done today.. Cleaned up all hoses on the engine and put them back.
Here is the painted engine:)



And i did the airbox modd you have to do when you have Done the carbmod ( lifting needles and change Malin jets.. It's shown in the beggining of My thread.
You have to cut some plastic on the airbox and on the filters plasticitet to. And if you have à newer blade then 95 you have to ditch the plastic in the middle of the airbox, dont use it at all.

Cut of this


And this on the airbox




And then you have to drill 3 10mm holes in the airbox on each side

Need your opinions about My forks.. I'm gonna anodized them and first i wanted to do them red and the yokos gold, but it turns out that the under yoko Will not be in the same gold because it is molded not cnc machined.. So now i'm thinking of doing them red end the upper yoko red and then paint the under yoko together with other parts offcourse in gold? Or Should i do the forks in traditional gold? :/ i think red Would be nice. Dont think i have ever seen red ones.
