    An details on the new clutch system? Very interested in that. Would an average mechanic be able to do the work?

    It does look better now that it’s not raw aluminum, I’ll give ‘em that.

    It looks heavy - what does the scale say?

    I think the forum is better when we aren’t shooting down what other people like. I think that can keep people from posting. Anyway, that’s my $0.02 and don’t feel like I have anything else to add to the subject. Just to be sure, you did see my screen grab from IG at the end of page 3 where Chris Birch liked the bike in question?

    I didn’t “shoot anybody down for liking the bike”. Nice try though.

    Good for Chris Birch.

    Regarding the wiring for the tower above,
    I always thought it is a bad idea to have electrical current running through bearings and always pulled up a ground lead from behind the headstock to feed all my equipment.
    Maybe the black wire with yellow spade connector is just that?
    Any input? Have I been doing this without cause? Or just being overly protective of my bearings? :ear

    Something for certain - there can't be any welders in this thread.

    Yes, the welds leave something to be desired, but race bikes are supposed to look good at 100 mph and look like shit stationary. This one seems to fit that formula. This motto holds true for self wrenching teams of one and small teams as you're putting your time into what really matters, and that isn't appearance.

    I guarantee when their rider is in the middle of a race he isn't worried about how the welds look.....

    Reckon they simply ran out of time before EICMA. As it is it has that hotrod look about it! Maybe V2 will be prettier...
