I learned from a guy at work that 530 chain to 520 conversions are very common to get more rear wheel horsepower in the sport bike scene...so that simplifies the jackshaft issue. I can put a 520 sprocket right on the Bandit, which gives me much needed room for the idler sprocket...I just about have it figured out. I should be within a few weeks of riding it. Going over to my paint guys house in a minute...fenders are done, I can wrap up the subframe and gusseting this weekend.

Rob, I'm impressed, no matter what all happens with your project, really.

Killer stuff, man.
I didn't know you had such a talent for cobbling together and thinking out weird sht like this.

I also like the old school stuff aspect.
