    Should be on the throttle hand though. But that bike with a front brake the throttle side is a bit cluttered.

    Got caliper bracket welded today. Fitted up tonight I think.

    Then to my great shame I only added one more hole, sorry @waylongway , my butt puckered :hide

    40 minutes polishing is more than enough for anything, it's ok, don't want to show up the swing arm anyway....

    I think you NEED Ti caliper pistons. Unseen excellence.

    Now I did do that on my Metisse and I'm sure I thought about it for this, I think I split the front calipers for some reason...have to look back.

    I think that's enough polish, the fork sliders and arm balance as hoped without another shiny thing trying to muscle in there.

    Waiting for Ti bolts to fix caliper.

    I will draw this a bit better, a waisted Ti torque arm that puts the caliper in the right place to match front.

    Obscene - but in a good way.

    Thanks for the link to the kill switch, they all look pants in ads but look good on the bike.

    Perhaps it's because your bike is sexual. Not sure.

    My postman is not getting a bad back from this.....
    Even found a company doing m10 half nuts to clear disc.


    IMG_0201.JPG


    Lock wire snapped half way round but as you can't actually see it on the bike I'll live with it. Glued little plastic caps in the lightening holes in the disc mount.

    Fitted up the back wheel and caliper. Treated the rear caliper to Ti thro bolts to replace the st/st, the fronts came with hight tensile so didn't mess with those.
    Sure it will all have to come off again but axle tightens up well, everything lines up and looking good.

    Thanks @villageidiot for the uni offer, I made up card 10x7 and they were too small so I went back and had a look at Kenny's bike, they just got shoved up under the seat so I tried that. Job done :D

    Although a work of art your tacho mount looks about 10-20% too big compared to Kennys.

    Also the above pic looks like his is machined from billet .... maybe....possibly...Got any Ti plate hanging around, at work maybe...:D

    Are you getting 'sparky' decals for the number plates?

    I guess not as it's not a true replica, Sparky was the spanner man I believe?

    The above pic is actually the 2009 bike, the original is in this video I think, has the tacho I copied but also has number plates bolted through the seat at the top. Mine are staying tucked in for sure.
    I only have three weeks exactly to get it ready to send it off to get pipes built :arg
