Maybe you could machine a little out of your hub and run these?

This is more than a loose running fit, not acceptable, so I had to fit some brass shim to take up the slack this worked ok for now.

Can anyone help with a metric bearing 47 x 22 x 14 this bearing is not listed here at my bearing wholesalers but it has to exist I just know it does

Isn't that the standard bearing size for a Honda VTR 1000??

i don't understand wanting to use the dr wheel. aren't you better off, at least tyre choice wise with an 18 inch rear ? and would it be easier to knock up a new axle ?

Yeah, he says in his last post if it works, he'll lace the hub to an 18" rim.

Bluhduh waiting and other jobs

Well I have been waiting for a heap of bits for ages. I have got some mounting brackets for the foot pegs coming on the slowest boat from the states once these have come I can set up the rear brake master cylinder and brake pedal. This will almost compleate the rolling chassis, the fuel tank needs to have some brackets fabricated but it is aligned and all is looking good.

I am also waiting for a heap of yz parts, Four gears for a yz 450 gear box the dreaded 3rd and 5th. The yz's are renowned for not holding 5th gear once the dogs wear out. This is a rebuild that is due as soon as these gears turn up because this bike is for sale (Will be a good buy when its done)

Then there is my yz

I have the exact same problem with my yz 426 after a 500km trip in the desert no fifth gear Although there is a silver lining in every cloud I found an almost new wr 426 gear box on ebay for $112 with $35 shipping considering each gear is over hundred bucks here it also came with a heap of other bits counter balencers kick starter assy and a full shift drum and forks this was an awsome find. This yz has easily done 7000 km plus per year since I got it as a wreck in 2003 just a small list of the parts replaced over the years.
-two new heads
-one set of cases
-three new barrels
-two new rods
-pistons/rings (who knows)
-timing chain every 50 hours (who knows how many)
-one compleate crank
-all brearings (Twice)
-WR flywheel, stator and Vortex ignition

This is the fourth major rebuild I have done to this bike!!! some times feels like im flogging a dead horse but I love to ride her and she feels like an extension of me im so comfortable riding/racing her and will continue to do so untill it falls apart under me

So this time it gets new gear box and associated bits, rings a few bearings oh yeah and weld up the stripped sump plug.

So a bit of work ahead of me in the next week or two
so be paitent with the main project

awesome job you have far more talent then I'll ever dream of.

what about added braces on the sub frame? it appears made to hold up to stock kit fine but with a added fuel tank in back and going across continent some bracing would help avoid trouble in the bush.

build on !

Talking Busy buyin parts

Well my little presents have been turning up quite stedily



I won this pair of footpegs from ebay $70 bucks and The brackets and pins $45 bucks for the footpegs from MRcycles I have only put them on to get a feel for their location and they feel good they are actually almost perfect compared to the yz measurements. I have to find some plate to make up the brackets and rear brake mounts.



Just got an oversize GYTR front disk and extender bracket in the mail Going to have a look at a front master, hose and caliper on sunday

Laugh I love the Cardboard CAD method

I got some more bits tonight and started on the brakes for the machine!

I patiently sat down and started to work with some thin cardboard, scizzors, ruler, level and a marker



This is what I have come up with! I am going to make it out if 10mm plate and add 3mm under the footpegs.



Here is a rough mock up of how things will look after I make up the plates The original foot pegs are mounted on 1/2 inch plate and are so bad in looks and design that they will not grace the pages of this build. They have to be spaced out so far to allow for enough room around the motor.





I collected the front brake master and slave cylinder today as well as a set of renthal tapered bars to replace the skinny 7/8 bars. Haven't mounted them yet because I need to get some bolts for the mounts. I have been searching through my spare barts bin and found a cluch lever of an old Pusskvarnah which will do the trick on the build up.

Laugh Rear brake mounted

A heap of cutting with the grinder and a quick linish. I have now got rear brakes.





Once I had the bottom bolt of the footpeg mounted, I then just worked my way up the bracket mounting all of the bits. First drill and tapped the bracket to fit the brake leaver and then I drilled the threads out of the master to make them clearence holes. Once I had these drilled out I could work out the radius of the actuating lever on the back of the brake lever and in turn align the master cylinder and drill and tap mounting threads. I have left the top mounting bolt out of the foot peg bracket because I want the pegs to be parallel with the ground when its finished, due to there being no motor the back of the bike is sitting up quite high so this will be one of the finishing touches. Using a mate mill I will be removing some excess metal to reduce some weight and in one section I will take 4mm off the surface to shift the master and the brake lever towards the center of the bike.
