  1. No I'm not giving up on bikes, I have a speed triple r in the garage at home, I just don't have the space or time for this project anymore unfortunately. I got the welding done at gia engineering in Nottingham, he did a fantastic job on it.
  2. I have lost my workshop, so unfortunately the project has to go in a hurry, thus it is on ebay on a 7 day listing. The bike and then the old YZF750 engine are on seperate listings (obviously the thunderace engine is with the main bike listing) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/302318096730?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/302318110413?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  3. Looks very much like an XJ600 to me, it's not a SRX, they have a box section type frame, not a round one. This looks like a XJ600, but if it's a 400 I'd say XJ400
  4. PM sent, if anyone needs to get hold of me, best to drop me a PM as this goes straight to my e-mail.
  5. Aren't the FCR's usually for track bikes? And also really expensive?
  6. The steering lock is likely to be a worn key or barrel. I'd recommend a bit of wiggle As for the leak, this could be a number of things, best bet is to clean everything up to remove old oil, then run it and tract the oil back up.
  7. Joe, I've only just seen this, but in response to your original question, I'd recommend a thunderace. 1000cc, 145hp, shed loads of torque (more that an RSV mille) and dirt cheap (you could buy an entire bike for about a grand and strip off the parts you dont need to sell)
  8. Yeah, they're all the same. I think you can also fit a thundercat tank, but you need the external fule pump (don't hold me to that though)
  9. Give venhill a shout, they will make complete 1 off specials. I think the banjos are all the same size, they can confirm this. http://www.venhill.co.uk/ I used them for some special cables for my project bike.
  10. I wired a 12V car charge point into my bike a few years ago and it set my alarm off while I was riding along when I plugged anything into it (it was a pont alarm). I didn't realise till my mates flagged me down because all my indicators were flashing, most amusing

    YZF750R front brakes

    Hi Gazza, I just saw this thread, if what you mean by no bite is having a front brake that has absolutoely no resistance or braking for the first half lever travel, then the brakes come on with plenty of stopping power then this is the same for every standard one I've ridden. I've heard the blue spots is the best upgrade, however you do need to change the master cylinder too. Apparently any of these discs should fit, if anyone knows differently let me know, and check the sizes before you buy them as this is just a list I've taken off the exup1000.co.uk website.

  14. I'm going to be making a new rear caliper hanger this week so that a blue spot rear will bolt straight onto the YZF 750 (will probably need a new torsion bar). If anyone is interested give me a shout, I will probably do them for about £25 - £30 delivered (depending on how much work is involved) Cheers Wayne
