Awesome project, love the kawak 650 twin. Really hoping they make a punched out, 270-degree crank version with top spec components sooner rather than later.

Won't the R1 shock be way short and prone to over-heating? Its designed to damp <5" of travel on a super-light bike on smooth roads I think.

10" of ground clearance and 12" of fork travel may end badly. I'd want at least an inch or two of clearance with both ends totally bottomed out.
