Edward: I am in the process of ordering the "R" Eco kit through Exomotive based near Atlanta. My donor bike will be a low miles salvage 2007 Burgman. I am aware of the body changes in the nose of the 2007-2009 and some engine/CVT internal changes, but I do not believe there is any external mounting issues that would pose a huge problem mating the engine and associated parts to the Eco-Exo kit. There is one exception, the dual disk front rims. I am not sure how wide the Eco Exo wheel mount is. Other than that, I am all set to dismantle my donor and do a little custom paint work to the engine and start rebuilding calipers. I will post pictures as I work. Good luck with your project.
Well I found someone to build my tank. I should have it in a couple weeks. I also added some fluorescent fixtures above the work table so I am ready to start building. I also have a friend that will tack weld all the tabs I need to add and finish welding just before I get it reblasted and painted.
Things are looking up and with everyone in place I can start moving along.
Thanks Scott for getting me the parts from Ebay UK.
I used all the parts in the build as the original steering column would let the shaft move back and forth that I did not like. The new OMP steering boss fits well with the new steering column and steering column switches you got me. Thanks!
I also had to redrill the mounting hole as they were to far back by about 3/8" .
My steering wheel will be here Monday so when that is installed I can set the proper distance for the seat.
I think I will have the frame painted silver with the GRP, Alloy floor and rear fire wall and fenders painted British Racing Green. The headlights are chrome and the rims are silver so this should look pretty spiffy here in the states. Or I could go with a black frame.
What are your thoughts on where I am going on this?
Good job Ed, I'm still plugging along (on the body plug). Finally made it to the point where i made a template which to work from. Its taken 5 gals of Bondo to create the plug on the chassis. Hoping to have it all in primer later today.
I have Fenders !!! And a steering wheel with a quick release hub mounted. It works very well and am pretty excited about the seating position after mounting the wheel.
Here is the code for Wisconsin.
Trans 305.40 Fenders and bumpers.
(1) A fender over each rear wheel is required on every motorcycle except those originally manufactured without a rear fender. A front fender is required on every motorcycle manufactured after March 1, 1996. The fender shall cover the complete tread width area of the tire and lengthwise from 15° to the front and 60° to the rear when measured at the center of the axle to the top of the tire on a vertical plane.
They were pretty close in size and after trimming them down to size tonight they should work well. They are made from GRP so pretty light. they are 26.5 " long and 6" wide. They fit the curve pretty close after being trimmed down so I am pretty happy about them.
The radius was a little larger that I liked. Also 6" was a little too large for my taste.
I ordered some custom 5" wide steel fenders that may work better.
