Ah right, I get you now. TBH, I've not had a chance to. The bike has either been stinking or its been too dark, or its been in bits getting something done. Hopefully I'll get some over the weekend.

God damn that NEC bike show... Just home from it now and I'm a little bit lighter. Got me a set of PVM's (same ones as used by Ten Kate) and they should be delivered in a few weeks.

These ones,

There is a sprocket supplied with the rear wheel that will be +2. The chain will be a Tsubaki x-ring and the front sprocket will be upon the recommendation of B+C. Can't wait for these wheels to be delivered Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Are you going to go blingy on the disks or keep oem which are iirc from my 05 model, are pretty much bang on once braided hoses are on?

Yup, the best 3 people fettling in the garage. Me, myself and I LOL

Yeah, I do commute on the bike and she's just clocked 10K on Monday evening just passed. As for the discs, I've though about new ones and the PFM 'Full Race Kit' really does it for me. Was told by the Harris guys that the AP stuff is top quality for the price too. I think this'll be the last of the spending though as we ( the missus and me) are actively looking to buy a house, so bye-bye disposable income Thumb Down hello to my own house and garage Thumbs Up

PFM sounds good, bear in mind if its their full floating discs, they're very rattly over bumps/potholes on normal roads. The ones I had on the 929 drove me crazy to the point of swapping them out for some oem discs but without looking I suspect the "full race kit" might be a different design

I was hoping for them before the new year as I'm in for more knee surgery on the 30th Dec and would have liked to have had them fitted before then. Oh well, like a man with a wheel-barrow, its all in front of me.

New Tsubaki chain and front sprocket sitting ready to go on (rear wheel is coming with one fitted and +2 teeth Grin ) once they arrive. Ho-hum, I guess all the good things come to those who wait.

Excellent, thank you. I've just got off the phone with Honda and ordered a silver one and a black one. I'll be fitting the silver one to the ****** **** that's coming from Japan Grin

Did we get to the bottom of that and I've somehow missed it or is it staying a mystery for now? Tongue

Feck me, I wish. Actually, I had a look at the Japanese site again and the weave isn't the same as the stuff I've already on the bike. Their CARBON WRAP is twill weave whereas mine is plain. I'm going to contact the people I got my upper and lower infills and hugger and chain guard to see if they can get/do swingarm covers too.


Was looking at Magical Racing's site at their swingarm carbon wrap but it'd mean I'd need to replace all the wee carbon bits I've already fitted and I can't really be annoyed with doing that. I will be buying their headlight cover though,

Another 3/4 weeks for the wheels to arrive Sad

But I did get a carbon swingarm cover ordered today though Grin If the weave matches the rest of the bike then it'll stay, if not then its back to source Thumbs Up

Any thoughts on the swingarm covers? And would matching carbon frame protectors be too much?

I'm not sure tbh think

They look like nice kit and I'm sure they'd save your swingarms paint and metal in a fall, but Im not one for carbon for carbons sake were it adds to the bikes weight rather than replaces a heavier item with a carbon version even though the weight is negligible - a carbon front mudguard yeah as that replaces a plastic version.

That said, its your bike and up close and personal its probably looks nicer for it, but its not something I'd spend much cash (if i had it) & my bike does have carbon frame protectors but it came with them and who knows they're possibly there to cover up something I'd prefer not to see Laugh

I'm getting really angry and frustrated with Harris/PVM. The wheels are going to be another 2/3 weeks and it's starting to give me a bit of rage...
