Man Eric,

When you said your body work might be up for sale because of a fairing you weren't kidding.


What are you doing for the suspension. Are you doing springs and catridge emulators like you mentioned or are you going with new forks?

Looks great. I have a .28 6061 bash plate and skid under mine (for sliding over rocks, fallen trees and the like).


The one problem I had was cooking my water pump. My plate flares out as it wraps around to act in place of crash bars. I created a little oven for my wp to simmer in and after installation, could only get a few thousand miles between repairs. I vented plate and wrapped the exhaust pipe to cure my problem. btw, your layup work is awsome (mine sucks). Did you use vacume bagging, wet out, or vacume infusion?

Impressive work!!

I am wondering... What is the exact procedure to mold the body parts? I guess you have to start with a block of solid material that you sculpt to obtain the desired shape, and then you lay the fibre\resin on it? Does this become the final panel, or do you use the resulting part as a pattern for the final piece? Could you explain a bit more on the procedure and material used, maybe you have some extra pictures?

Will,
As it stands now I am going to put in springs and emulators and see how that works.

The rear shock is still in question.....Does anyone know if it can be rebuilt with an emulator? If so I would likely give that a shot before dropping $800 on an Ohlins

Eric
