The new chain in today! Some reworking of the sprockets tomorrow, put the electronics back together and then we go ride! Hopefully after many delays this could be it.

Just a fyi on chain links. #40 industrial master links and half-links fit 420 o-ring chain just fine. (but are a bit wide for plain 420) So If you're really hard up for a rivet master link, get a #40 rivet link and shorten up the pins a bit. #41 also cross-fits, but the side plates aren't as strong as 420. And if you're really desperate, bicycle chain has the same pitch and roller diameter as #40 and 420. Bike-chain also has some slick snap together master links. The rated braking tension is 5-8,000lbf on most bike chain so it should take the load. (might wear a bit fast though...)

Yes, its 3am. this is the reult of trying to reroute someone else's bike that has a modified wiring harness and more control cables than you can shake a big stick at. And that big space behind the headstock where they all went through is not empty anymore! Then add in a bit of, oops, forgot to make a final version of that, and a few days later and here we are.

Well, its mostly together and I've got to call it a night. I think all the routing is done, now just put the carbs, cables, tanks and bodywork on and its off to the dirt lot behind the shop!

FYI, yes, they both spin! We'll start testing at 75% uderdrive.

How do you upload a video to this thing?

Okay, I got it to play through a converter - very funny. Now make yourself useful and convert it to a format mac users can see and send it to me and I'll host it so everyone knows how funny you are.

The sad part is I could probably still ride faster than you with Chris pushing me...

90% done, 90% to go

That's what putting this bike together feels like!

After hours repairing wiring loom problems the bike is finally assembled!



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.

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!
