As of 17 Nov.

Like ducks in a row.



Waiting on some cam followers.



Snazzy new side stand.





This must be boxer heaven, even the cars have horizontally opposed engines.

Would have been nice to have a few steaks on the BBQ there this morning Dave, even though I waited till the storm was over I still got wet on the way home.

I had a cuppa with them while Ray had lunch and the sun came out along, with the humidity.

Won`t be long now, nearly there. Waiting on a muffler to arrive, then have to get a bridging pipe made to go from the collector to the muffler. The seat will have to be raised, hopefully John Moorhouse can do it for me. The engine was fired up for the first time today, a couple of sessions of heating and cooling so the heads can be torqued down correctly. That horrible red spring will change colour to black if it is the correct weight. We're going to fit genuine pannier racks as support for my Andy Strapz bags; the rear guard flops around as it is so the cross brace will support this..... I`m excited.

A very neat sidestand, far neater than my own 'Surefoot' copy. I intend to make a better version.

Looking great, a vey neat build. I like the dash it looks like it will be easier to read than the vapour units.

When I ordered my rear r80g/s shock I asked for a black spring - it came in blue !
(in fact would have matched your frame)
When I Had to replace the 1200's shock (wilbers again) I asked for black - it came in Orange !! Doh!

The rear shock is a Bitubo that Ray has had hanging around for some time, just thought I`d give it a go. The bike won`t be getting too hard a life, but if it looks like it won`t do the job I`ll go for a Hyperpro. Ray got me one for my Xchallenge via one of his UK suppliers, a bit cheaper and damn sight quicker than ordering from the Australian agents ().

3rd picture in Post #112

You have what looks like a wire coming from the speedometer takeoff out of the gearbox. It looks too thin to be a mechanical cable, but anything is possible I suppose.
Looking at your speedo in the Lynx fairing, I had been thinking it was all electrical.

Could you give a bit of info on what your have done here?

Great looking paint , by the way.

You are correct, It is an electrical wire, but it does the same job job as the mechanical gearbox drive and goes up to the Acewell unit.

Do you know where the part comes from that holds the original switch for the heated grips ?

Not really sure what you mean, my friend; maybe your translator programme has let you down . The switch, which is on the left of the Acewell unit, partly obscured by cables is mounted in the dash that comes with the Britannia Composites fairing. There is a cutout that the cables go through on some other bikes, so putting the switch there was a good way of covering it up.
