    I made the rest of the exhaust pipe.

    Then decided that I (and the rest of everyone i know) hated it, so it went in the bin and I started again with this in mind

    Looks like it is coming along nicely.

    Couple of questions on the oil tank............

    What is the capacity?
    How will you drain it?
    How will you refill/bleed the tank after an oil change?

    Keep the photos coming!!:clap

    I don't have any photos but I cobbled together a loom from the stock 640 one sufficient to let it run. Would it start? Would it hell! The starter motor span up but the engine wouldn't turn over. This was traced back to the starter clutch and subsequently replaced. This was the first proper engine test

    It's a tad loud but I hadn't finished the exhaust at this point...:rofl

    The capacity is approximately 750cc.
    The stock frame tube is about 600cc and i thought a little extra wouldn't hurt.
    To drain it I will remove it and upend it.
    I don't need to bleed it, both the inlet and outlet are on top, it fills up, pressurises itself and flows out to the standard oil return.
    As for the exhaust, the chain is on the RHS of the bike and I didn't want clearance issues. The standard RS 125 exhaust is LHS exit so mine is too.

    Since the tank fouled the new motor I cut the bottom out and inverted it, I will have it plastic welded later.

    My Father found a link pipe for a bike unknown at a jumble sale that 'looked about right' was a total of £6. Modified it a bit (cut the end off) and rewelded it into this.

    I opted for the koso clocks because they come with their own temperature sensors and they look awesome
