It looks real tidy. If not for the front driveshafts it would be hard to tell its a 2WD bike. Here's some detail shots, not of Gregor quality:

















Its all ready to go.....except for the dead battery. Its been on a tender for a couple of days and the green light was on but I guess it's just past its useful life. New battery tomorrow then I have some fun!

Maybe I should stop saying that as it seems that I keep jinxing myself.....

At this point I'm happy that everything came out as intended and any changes will be minor tweaks so I'll start on Tony's frame this week.
Jeezo my head has just exploded looking at those chains........mummy...mummy.

You guys are funny fighting for the 1000th post! I just want to comment that it is great to see this project come through to fruition. The work looks very professionally well done and the end result is beautiful engineering.

Now go get some test rides on it to shake out any bugs and get those chokes worked out! I don't even run FCR's but I love the work, engineering and thinking that you guys are doing for our 950's.

Congratulations Gregor and Chris. Flanny, you've done some great stuff to your past 950, but I think you may need to concede this battle!

The saga continues

Now with a bad fuel pump. Its like the Ben Spies of motorcycles. Is this pump the same as anything I can get from an auto parts store?

Fp

I have not seen the OEM pump at the corner parts store, nor have I seen the Facet 40171 there either.... If you need a pump, let me know, I have 3 Facet pumps sitting on the shelf

I thought someone posted that the Yamaha 4x4 quad pump was the same one.. NAPA carries the Facet.

If the pump just stopped cycling, the problem is likely the points, and much like ignition points, they can be filed to make them work a little longer.

That way you can at least have it running until you can make a proper fix.



Edit: I just saw your request for opinions. I went round and round about what fix would be the best, and finally just replaced the points in the stock pump.

Many will say that is not the best choice, but I am happy with it, and I didn't have to modify anything to do it.

The OEM Mitsu pump was used in several other applications, there were some Kawi street bikes and several others that were fitted with the same pump, however they all suffer from the same issue... the points erode and the pump quits.

Yup, just did that and after a bit of shaking got it to run. Hopefully something soon.

And now its not. I think there is a short in the coil as my power supply current limit light lights up with the meter maxed out. I'll just swap it out tomorrow with something solid state. Or maybe tomorrow i'll just stay in bed.

Gregor, Chris - even though I participate quite often in Some Assembly Required, I had not gotten wind of this thread until Chris posted on MC_Chassis_Design. All I have to say is that damn it, my productivity has plummeted quite severely in the last 3 days, I read it cover to cover.

Brilliant, all of it.

My hat's off to both of you: Gregor for having the vision, Chris for having the technical chops to make it happen.

Perhaps I'll get to see it at the next One Show. Chris could you be convinced to make the trip for that event?

btw...

I deeply appreciate the exchange about the pin spanner. ;)
