Thanks, that one fixed mine, again.
Works for me, too!
Man that is one beautiful piece of aluminum! Was it worth the wait?
Ordered the Ricochet Versys 300 skid plate (hoping to make it fit), Moose XCR rear rack (hoping to make it fit) and Highway Dirt Bikes hand guards w/mirrors. The new shop working on the frame is saying 2-3 weeks. With all the time and money in this project, I decided to have some engine work done. Going to keep the bottom end stock but then port the head, put in cams and have it tuned. People are getting 50-55hp on race gas so 40-45hp should be doable with pump gas. Doesn't sound like much compared to big bikes however that's the same amount of power my 450 had stock.
Front motor mount almost complete.
Gee I am enjoying this build
Have plans to build something very different too later in the year. Need to sell some bikes and make some room
Me Too - there is a link to Google Chrome fix at the above link also - thanks Guys
Now I am going to start over and read this cool build from the beginning!
Looks like you are making some good progress now -
Your rear shock - is that a Ohlins and did you just order it to fit the CFR 450R?
Yes, Ohlins. I called my suspension guy that works on my roadrace stuff and had him build it. This bike is a 2003 so I don't know if off the shelf shocks are available.
I'll post some pictures this week. I've been putting together sub assemblies (forks/triples/wheel, subframe/airbox/fender). The bike should be ready to go to the engine builder in a week or two. I just really want it finished by spring time.
Radiator is in :)
Front end so far.
Subframe so far.
What are you planning for an airbox?
Oh good question. If I was doing any good water crossings, I would prefer to have an airbox or at least something underneath to deflect spray away from the air filter.
CRF450R airbox, remove rubber boot, make aluminum plate to go in place of the boot on the front of the airbox, machined two holes for tubes running from throttle bodies. Just haven't decided if I'm going to try and use the CRF450R air filter or a couple of uni pod filters on the ends of the tubes and inside the airbox.
Like to see photos of airbox when done - sounds like the box will not have to move - that would be nice
A few guys tried that method on the ccm 404 and lost HP. I think the plate on the front to adapt the airbox wouldbe better
MotoZ tire's installed. New wheel bearings. Lightweight rim locks. Balanced. Front ebc rotor on. MSR sprocket. Really need to clean the wheels though.
