Pipes are the next thing.. Spoke to James at Alonze today, he's going to make me a set of pipes but not weld the rear bracket or stinger so I can get them fitting correctly for my yzf arm. I can bolt them up then tack the bracket and stinger to fit. Then I can get them TIGed up locally.
Engine well on its way, the clutch basket was knackered but I had another basket but gear numbers didn't sum up. Split the basket and got some rivets, took it to a local engineering spot for them to press the rivets....got a phone call a couple of days later..."sorry we've dropped it and snapped 2 arms off it" FFS
Anyway there going to pay so I've ordered a mikita billet unit and new rubbers 😁
Well, that's a day of my life I'll never get back, swing arm brass wheeled to get the black off, then 180 DA sanded, 400 then grey scotbrite to get a brushed alloy finish, just waiting for some etch satin laquer to turn up now....
So on the the clock bracket, I found some ally plate I've had kicking about for years so used that for the bracket. When I was mocking it up, I wasn't feeling it with the standard MT bar clamps, they just seemed too chunky with my clock mounted fairly low so I had a look (again) in my stash and found a set of drag bars and risers I was going to use on my vmax but never did..
These clamps seem to look better to me even though there not for 28mm fatbars. Looks more balanced in my humble opinion.
So the bars and clocks are now mounted but nothing wired up yet !
Painted the switchgear and got a decal kit for them so next job is to build them up and I've got a clutch perch/lever coming. Using the standard yzf 125 MC so Hopfully I should have the controls sorted at the weekend....
