Well you won't be able to tell, but since the last photo I have replaced:

Forks, Mudguard, Radiator, Throttle, Front Braking System, Clocks, Front Wheel, both Clipons & Exhaust.

I'm a bit concerned that the throttle doesn't snap back quickly enough. Have checked the free movement & routing of cables, tube etc so it can only be something on the throttle body.

I may try it before changing the bodies (I have a spare set).

im thinking of trying an r6 throttle on the blade, quite an easy mod (with a dremel) and mucho cheaper than an HRC throttle, about £15 all in smile

All finished.

Made up from the best bits from two bikes. All road legal but not very comfy with stiff suspenders & no seat to speak of.

Will give it a better paintjob at some point.

Thought you'd been a bit conspicuous by your absence the last few days but looks like you've been a busy boy.

Looks very nice, very little looks dirty or not right except for maybe that pazzo sticker and that well used crash bung but over all 9.5/10

Well done Thumbs Up

Thanks Kerm

Its more function than looks at the moment.

I will be removing the silly tail tidy soon as it makes it look, er...untidy!

Don't want it as a road bike as such; just wanted a bit of a project.

Didn't like riding without mirrors etc so took the Blade out instead; she feels quite sweet after a winter rebuild.

You are right of course Dave.

But I wanted it to stick out like a sore thumb to help keep the rozzers off my back; no lights etc.

Get that suspension set up ffs, then you might be able to get rid of that strange pattern on the rear tyre. Wink

Read this and ask me later. Wink

There isn't a quick reply to that question. smile








Plus, I know f'k all. smile


But a good starting point is to take some measurements with the suspension un-loaded to expose the full available travel of both the forks and the rear shock, everything else relies upon you knowing those figures. smile
