wont impose at all, im free after 3.00 most days , mobile number is2 give me a ring when you want to come down tommmorw aft would be fine if your keen.
Think i have finally sorted everything, did a 10 mile trip today, thought i had a problem with the gears but rearlised im changing gear on too low revs (i have never ridden a bike ) and was been too gentle . So need to do some more rides to check, when i got the revs higher its amazingly quick.
Yes like the pro race 3 but thought they were 18in + if they do 17in I could get them,less spokes to clean.
Erik has brought the dreaded msva requirements up and it got me thinking, do we need to have warning lights on the dash for anything extra thats not on the yam display, ie hazard warning lights, handbrake warning light, cheers.
I fitted a Hazard Warning light kit, simply setup, 4 wires, power, earth and a feed to each positive indicator feed, the switch flashes, when I operate it, it flashes the indicator light on the Yamaha Dash, Paul has not specified I needed a separate light. Will keep you up to date, but to be honest, its worth asking RTR direct about any questions like these?
You are also more than welcome to come and see my TR1KE, or go and see it at RTR, I didn't fit a hand brake light, wasn't sure if it was a requirement for MSVA, I know the MSVA is not quite as mental as the IVA I had to ready my MNR for.
Switches wise, I wanted to simplify my setup this time, I have utilised all the original switchgear of my R1, all works great, I did fit the Savage range of switches on my MNR, but at £15 a switch, its get very expensive when you need to look at the following needed for the build:
Side Light Dip Beam Main Beam Hazards Start Button Horn (If you go down this route) left/right indicators (If you decide against column switches) Fan over ride (Worth fitting)
Thanks for the link to the wheels nick,I did a bit more searching earlier and found them in 17inch,ill ring them on monday for specs.
your hazard kit sounds like a good mod.
your switch gear from the bike looks great, they must be msva ok or rtr would of said otherwise. I thought you had to be able to use the indicators and horn without taking your hand off the wheel. I read it somewhere, probably the dutch chaps or 4 wheelers.....or can you reach without taking your hand off..... kev
Good advice thanks, its an open offer if anyone else is close by they are more than welcome to come round just pm me, I'm sure slugshot will put up some photos that he finds helpfull.
The dash system has to be within a hand reach, as long as they can be reached with one hand on the steering wheel easily its fine by my understanding. although mine uses the steering column original stalk for indicators and full beam switch, which is a good setup in my opinion
I collected my kit from rtr last night and made a start on the build when i got home.... i did the usual job everyone seems to do first and marked out the floor and bulkhead. I thought about cutting them and drilling for riveting but it was 10pm so called it a day.
tonight cut to shape and drilled for riveting the floor, then disassembled the steering rack and put in a quick rack kit then fitted it to the chassis. next i put the chassis on stands lifted the engine into place with a hydraulic bike lift,then i had to oval the two cylinder head mounts, there was no way the bolts would line up. not too much of a problem realy as there is plenty of metal left. the last job for the night was to spacer the engine mounts.
I have taken some pics as i've been doing it and will post them on after i've done a few more bits.
Its been a week since i last logged on, iv'e spent about 25 hours of evenings and weekend assembling my kit. I made up a clutch cable and used the new peddle stop that's now standard on the kit, i adjusted the stop so the inner cable at the casing has 13mm movement,the same as it was on the bike. i also trued up the wheel camber and toe in. made and fitted a gear change, brake hoses, steering column link, seats with belt slots, fuel tanks,bulk head, i also got my car tyre fitted to the r1 wheel,it took a couple of goes to seat but is been on a few days now and its still up.
ill have to finish early one night and put some photos on site but its getting addictive
