If someone wants to do this mod they have one in stock. ends up more expensive I think but you get a tubeless rear which is sweet!!!!!

WR 450 from what I know. Its road legal in OZ has the same E13 marking as the light on my bandit and has the <-> insignia . I liked the look of the JVO style so that seems the direction I'll go at the moment

Ok. Here is the final plan for the nav tower. I cut the entire side plate out of delron and fitted it up along with the side plates that mount the light. Its going to need a few tweaks but over all this is the finalish idea. I have attach a few pics of the design.
Tomorrow hopefully I'll get the stem pressed out of the DL triple and swapped into the YZ triple. From my measurements the steerers are the same diameter in the lowers. If correct the swap should me pretty easy.

Also the measured the front wheel and axle and I think the existing wheel may just bolt on so to speak. I'll need spacers but thats a pretty easy fix.

This may allow me in the future to use another YZ lower with disc carrier if I need to go back to a dual disc setup. Its pretty close but no worse than the bandit I also have. This way I can keep the 310mm disc I have and adapt a different caliper. I looking at a 4 pot something and then sort of the right size master cylinder to run it. Maybe by christmas I'll have the front end fitted, then get the nav parts machined, hopefully it may be taking more shape by the start of Jan.

I am putting of the fairing build though .......

been a while but there has been progress.

Making a new fuel tank to fit into the rear subframe. Got it partly mocked up and maybe soon it will be finished enough to present pics. That way I can remove the front tank which will make the fairing a lot easier to complete, should also lower the CoG of the bike as its pretty top heavy with a 3 inch lift.

I've also shortened the YZ forks. Removed the damper rod and re machined 70mm shorter so the overall travel will be about 8.5 inches which is about 3 inches longer than stock but with the lift and the different axle position won't be a problem. I have got new springs with a different rate coming from Sonic in the states with a approximate rate after conversations with rich from sonic.

attached a pic of the current CAD drawing as I still plan to build it on computer as symmetry is easier that way and I am having MAJOR problem planning all the different dimensions.

It may look like that but as I agree with you no. Hows the front end going?

That tank will crack,,,no doubt. Have a look at your standard tank.....rubber mounts all round...there is a reason for that. Any car, or bike has rubber mounts on the tank, it aint by accident.

Wont the rear tire hit the bottom of your subframe tank when loaded or when it hits a bump? Looks really close on your mockup picture.

Maybe my last post didn't make sense. The tank is NOT going to be welded to the sub frame, and yes it will be rubber mounted similar to the standard tank with a gap all round.

The way we are making the tank is to make the overall shape and then cut out the section for the rear wheel. As you have said the wheel would hit and end up in a mess.

HeHe, dont drink and post...forgot that for a while last night.More pics please. Are you confident your new subframe will hold pillion, luggage and fuel? I am scared of changing mine, but if I was to, it would look like yours I think.
