About the triple clamps. Not too many bikes have the h-bar clamps it that position . That gives you a head start on being different. You're not doing all this work to be the same old, same old are you?

And save the 20 tooth counter shaft sprocket for the trip to the Bub bonnieville meet youv'e been dreaming about. Or is that thought still on the back burner?

Ride fast and be dangerous.

20t - 17t

Not sure what the std gearing is on your Beeza, but that will gear it down a fair old bit.

Me Trumpet has a DR650 rear end, and the gearing is a bit on the low side! Coz the rear sprox is tight to the hub, I don't have much choice in gearing that end up (less teeth), which only leaves the option of a larger front sprox

But as we all know (good old Brit design) FIRST the l/h casing, clutch, allernator and primary chain need to come off to get to it !!!!

Keep posting....

while not 100% certain I think it had a 17t front on it. I know it wasnt a 20t. I cant run a 20t I have all kinds of chain clearance issues with the 20t. I was going to check the stock sprocket too. I was just out to my parents last night where most of the motor still resides in there barn. Shoulda checked while I was out there.

Im not too concerned with too low gearing. It is a riged after all. If I get over 45mph with this thing I will be supprised. Michigan roads aint the greatest. Im just going to take my time riding this bike.

Love the look of all the proper tig welding! It is way classier than just having someone squeeze the trigger on a mig around the bike.

Ya know Ive been thinking about this and I aint coming up with anything. the fender will have to be roughly 1" away from the tire just to maintain an even spacing all around. But then seeing as the fender is mounted to the frame, whenever you adjust the chain the fender spacing will be all wacky.

Im contemplating some kind of adjustable fender bracket mount so that when the chain stretches and I have to move the rear wheel back I can adjust the fender back as well to maintain the visual. But so far I havent found an answer to that one. Once I get my front sprocket in, chain on and chain tensioneer in place Ill have a look at the fender mounting to see what I can come up with.

Otherwise Ill just mount the fender with the wheel all the way forward in the adjustment (for proper clearance) then it will be what it will be as the chain stretches and the wheel gets moved back. I know that this is the way most bikes are.... Dosnt mean I have to like it though.

But then again maybe that chain tensioner will cure this problem by taking up the chain stretch.

These are the things that keep me up at night... I know... If only we could all have these problems

Chaparal motorsports. Bikemaster euro bend. $15

I have been eyeballing the superbike bend as well because of the narrower center section will give me more tank clearance.

But then again, thanks to ebay today. I might have found the fix for the tank clearance issue.

Tail light

Might want to drill a hole in the swing arm frame to run the wires up to under the seat for the tail light. Looks better than zip ties.

Also check the clearance between the oil tank bottom and chain real close. They have a way of occupying the same space once the chain slaps.

I run a piece of 1/4" steel between them.

Yep. Im on the same page as ya. Ive been thinking about wire routing and chain/oil tank clearance as well.

I just read through this whole thing and can't wait to see it done.

I so wish I had some garage space and 1/8 of the knowledge to get into something like this.

Thanks for taking the time to write and post it all up.
