Ohlins forks, Brembo calipers and discs, JL GP pipes, NK Racing silencers, NK footrest hangers, NK yokes, Zeeltronic CDI and YPVS controller, Chris Ambler Racing tank, King Carbon bodywork from my modified OWD3 YZR500 fairings - R6 2CO swingarm - R6 2CO wheels - Harris pegs and gear/rear brake levers - Brembo front master cylinder - Brembo clutch lever, Brembo rear master cylinder, Mikuni VM28 flatslide carbs , SPA tacho and temperature gauge, Dyno work by Krazy Katt , electrics and build and LOTS of detail work, including dozens of brackets ,radiator design, sub frames , brake lines, clutch cables, frame bracing, etc. by Martin at M.E. Motorcycles who bought all the components together and made them work - a lot easier said than done!
The bike weighs 150kg dry - 170kg with half a tank of fuel wet.
Suspension is now with Maxton and the many parts are with painters, powder coaters and anodisers - so sadly it will be many weeks before the bike goes back together for completion.
PS:- Electrics are temporary to prove everything works - they'll be tidied up
That is absolutely stunning. Is it how you pictured it?
Pretty much - I would have preferred a brushed bare alloy finish on the frame and swingarm, but it was looking doubtful if that would have worked due to the welding attaching brackets and extra frame bracing.
Very nice indeed, top draw. Why did you change from the 34's to the 28's. Over carbed?
Hi Mark - the 34’s were physically too big and didn’t fit the rubber inlets very well - they also snagged each other and the engine - We also thought that it might well be over-carbed for the engines state of tune
Should get the bodywork back from the painters next week and fingers crossed I'm hoping to get my suspension back from Maxton next week as well - then the bike can be finished off - if there is such a thing as a finished special!
That looks absolutely awesome The black frame and swinger look much better than silver I think, especially with the KR paint scheme. I'm not usually a fan of 500's but I love this one ! All credit to you on a beautiful build
