So this is where we stand. Since the last update we have

  • Chain and sprocket alignment
  • Rear shocks spacers and bolts sourced and fitted
  • Footrest hangers fabricated and fitted
  • Additional frame bracing to headstock added
  • Brakes and gear linkages connected
  • Clutch checked and new cable fitted
  • Front wheel bearing support fitted
  • Rear brake torsion bar fabricated and fitted
  • All engine mounts in place
  • Coils (albeit two different ones) fitted
  • Exhaust gaskets sourced and exhaust test fitted

That’s a period Harris exhaust being test fitted. Pretty sure it will work …

… and that’s the Mikuni VM29SS flat slide carbs of a Slingshot GSXR750. Should be enough for the 1100 motor for now. If we tune this motor then we’ll need something a little more meaty.

Not sure next steps just yet:

  • Spotted an issue with the carbs that needs solving (think it’s a sticking float bowl)
  • Exhaust hanger needs fabricating
  • Electrics need laying out with under-seat placement.
