I think Motostrano sells the radial adapter plates. I know someone makes them because I've seen them on supermoto bikes. I'm 99% sure Magura sells some.

Bike is still looking good. At this rate it'll be ready by summer?

K2M - if your using VE as a barrier layer make sure you use a layer of tissue 1st with the vinyl and a neat layer second. Make sure the 1st cures properly - add a little DMA if you can to speed it up if your in a cold area.

Thank you Pete. We really appreciate your advice. You are the professional fiberglasser.

I was given something called "wax in styrene" to add at 2% is that the DMA you are talking about?

Man have I been busy. Trying to fit a later model g/box to my car. Car drivers are slack assholes I don't think this box ever got new oil. It was black inside, and some of the bearings were fucked. 4th rebuild. The bloody thing ways about 70kg's. Very hard on your own off the floor. Makes an oil change on an LC8 seem like a walk in the park.............................

Fuck I hate working on cars. I was nearly condemned to do this for life. As an apprentice I could not afford a car so I got a small bike for transport a 125 Yamaha (rubber pads on the tank) YS or something. Rode it to see a just realest movie "On any Sunday". The beginning of a life time obsession

If it lasts 2 years I'll be happy. It's not a good idea to buy a g/box on the Internet. Next time I'll look local and pull this rear cover off/or use these photos to blackmail this very popular dismantler to do the right thing by me or I will expose them through the forums, which is where they came recommended Mmmmmmmmmmm

At last ................back to the bike

No Wax in styrene is just that - parafin wax diluted in styrene solution. Its added to styrene based resins to remove the "tackiness" when it cures. Eases sanding so you dont get clogging or used to finished layers that are not being coated by paint or flocote. Do not use this in epoxy resins....
In styrene based resins there is the gel time (time it takes till the resin turns to jelly) and the cure time (time taken to achieve curing) Cobalt octoate affects the gel time and DMA (Diamethylanaline) affects the cure time. Tech data sheets will advise % of both to give a gel time based on ambient temps for certain resins.
Epoxies have a different base resin and the hardener dictates gel/cure times. You dont get to adjust epoxies as easily as you do styrene based resins for variances in temp. You just get fast med and slow hardeners.

Thanks Pete I will have to learn more about the technical side of polly-resins. Those data sheets are a great asset.

So I took my time looking at the various options of mounting the oil tank. One tends to think of it resting on a steel mount. Such mounts are not necessary with carbon as its structural strength will support from a couple of mounts. So with a minimum of weight increase I used two of the existing rear fuel tank/exhaust/pillion peg mounts, and one frame mount up high.......... there are no frame mounts, and I did not want to start welding. So I made a wet carbon wrap against nylon/non stick.

First I made the mounts on the tank having determined their approximate position. I made them much bigger than necessary, then grind them down at the end before mounting.

Wrapping the tank in carbon will be done in one go, so the mounts will be chemically bonded "Strong" 8mm thick.

That is simply awsome K2M. Love your work. Your skills are really cool, keep it comming. Help me keep this thread alive. 8mm. That will be the last thing to deform in a frontal collision with a truck.

GO...

Update:

Texted Søren yesterday if he had time to help me complete the right fork. And yes right away this morning 0830 he stepped in and helped a lot.

Scrap.









All this work made it possible to see if the radiator would fit. A bit nervous because it is way longer than the original.











First test looks great. The fit seems ok and some measurering where done and full compression with 21" should clear fine. Though we will do some more test a long the assembling. I still have a 2.5cm(1inch) i could move of the front exhaust so the radiator could come further back.

Begins to look like a bike. I´m thrilled.

Thanks Mate.
That tranny was not designed for that motor so I accept it's shortcomings. This Outback tranny is stronger to match later more powerful motors so I will fit the 3Lt 6 cylinder motor next with turbo and start the breaking process again

Mounting the oil tank.
I welded tabs to the existing rear tank/exhaust mounts





The top mount was made by by wrapping wet carbon around the frame



I used a piece of nylon to keep them apart. This will allow the rubber grommet to have space.





This mount bolts onto the pillion peg mounts on the frame. I can attach pillion pegs if i need them.

I got this idea on how to finish off the oil tank. I thought why not spray a little gloss clear from a can........... Carbon can be hard to finish. usually I wipe some wet epoxy on with my finger, but it does not give the best results.

From this :-



To this :-













I must say that I very happy with this result, and it's simplicity
While not being perfect it sure is easy

Looking good Mikael. I'd be concerned with vapor lock in that location, both from the proximity of the header as well as the hot air blowing in that direction. At the very least I'd go with some quality reflective foil and maybe ceramic coat the exhaust system inside and out.
