Acceleration, braking, cranked over in your favorite bends  and roundabouts. You will move around a lot.

I just think its something that deserves as much thought as you have put in the rest of the bike.

Oh it has been thought through. It will be more obvious once the finished shape of the foam is done 

 

Bare in mind the bike currently sits with no forks in it. The sitting position is flat once the bike stands on two wheels :)

Incredibly slow work at the minute. Work is crazy busy and other commitments are taking up all of my time but I have had a little present.

Chrome seems quite appropriate for the bike (my tassles are on order) rofl

:D I'm self employed and work has been crazy so done very very little for some time now. On top of that, race season started for us last weekend so preparation for that has taken up quite some time. I promise to get back to this asap

I do now have the single carb conversion kit arrive so may start tinkering very soon

Hi Jack

i have in my garage a stock tr1 that I'm going to turn into something very similar to yours, so I'm following your build closely!

im going tu use an r1 front end and the sv650 rear wheel and brake caliper, did you use the 99-02 or the later ones?

is there much difference between the two? Before I go out and buy the wrong bits!

thanks T

Hardly any difference between the two mate. Just bearing and therefore spindle size.

Why are you going to the Yamaha front  and Suzuki rear ? The reason I went for the GSXR front ws to match the wheel to the SV. You will have different shape wheels the way you are descrbing

Hi jack

already bought the front end, most builds I've seen pics of have different wheels. At least the r1/XS have 3 spokes and once they're painted and some nice waves discs only the very sharpest of eyes will notice (I hope) !!!

Just a quick one to say I'm still here but struggling to find any time at all to work on this. I have had time to dry fit the 2 into 1 manifold and 40mm flatslide carb. Looks so much better than the standard twin carbs  [thumbsup]

Sorry for the late reply. I have been crazy busy at work and not touched this (other than stripping it down to bare bones for the umpteenth time. Will be picking it up and running with it again very soon

It's been way too long since I've done anything to this. The bikes has been in bits scattered between my work and home garage. I've got the bit between my teeth again so have got the thing back together again

I've sourced a nice rear brake disc for the SV rear wheel
