Looking good. Love the garage space, looks just like mine and even I have to work right next to an XL600R.

That looks sweet! A single sided swingarm would look really sweet.

....yeah - but everyone and his dog seems to have done that ... thats why I sold the Ducati 916 s/arm that came with it



All down to taste I suppose - but I do have a std s/arm for back-up

Looking great so far! What's your plan for the bars, clip-ons or risers?

Good question - one that I cannot answer as I think I'll need to get the rolling chassis together and see how it looks & feels.

I have some 43mm clip-ons from a early GSXR1100 which I'll try out - plus I have some low risers to try out some normal/flat bars.

Sorry chaps - not much to report

The new stem is back & I fitted it with the press at work......

I've shimmed the valves now and put the engine back in the frame to finish off the lower rear engine mounts.....





....and check the chain alignment... :?? I need to take up 30mm off-set, so want to bring the rear sprox in 10mm (to help clear the frame) and have a 20mm off-set front/drive sprox - so I'll be off to TALON again pretty soon


I've fitted a Bandit 1200 front end for the time being to get a temporary rolling chassis...



I think I'll need a chat with TALON when I collect the off-set sprox order!

Here's some close-ups of the Harrison rear caliper & the neat fitting to save having to fit a torque arm....







And heres another mock-up of the rolling chassis - Note the 4:1 ain't so nicely placed now the bulky JMC has replaced the s/s 916 s/arm






I did pick up a low mileage Wiseco 1105cc Hi-comp piston & barrel set for future use

Laugh

Slow progress at the moment........ Now the 5/8" off-set drive sprox are done & collected from Talon......



Whilst there I asked them to make me up a special sprocket adaptor coz I need a total of 28mm off-set for the 190 section tyre fitted on the Dymag.



I need to set the rear wheel sprox in by 12mm, so they will make a plate to fit where the sprox should live and then I can fit an "off-the-shelf" item to the inboard side of that - and voila, sorted !!!!!!

Once thats done I'll get some 530 H/D chain and the drive line will be complete : All in the c&s effort will be just over 200


I've contacted a chap who powder coated my Mk.II Sprinter and he can do me frame, yokes, s/stand & mounting piece for about 150, so should get that down to him next week - 7 - 10 day turn-around

Quick question Pigford, if you offset a sprocket like that (ie move it out) doesn't it put an eccentric load on the output shaft and bearing?

YES - but depends on what motor you're running........... My (K)Z1000A2 is only 1075 Wiseco, making 90 bhp at the wheel amd I've run loads of 1/4 miles & about 10k miles with no problems



My Mk.II Sprinter on the other hand is 1392 & I'm running with a D&G outrigger








But the motor is only gonna be 1105 Wiseco, but I think I'm gonna make my own outrigger plate for this bike

Got the sprocket adaptor from TALON this afternoon..... to be polished within an inch of its life





So thats brung it in 12mm - and the drive sprox is out by 5/8" - Jobs a goodun

The adaptor allows fitting of a standard "off-the-shelf" sprox - in this case one for a VRF800
