Sounds like full steam ahead there Will. You`l be on the road in no time!You probably got better weather than UK to go out and play when its done, although I did manage all day out in the tR1ke yesterday, not bad for October!
:)Cheers Paul, Question for you guys, the engine I've got is a 2004 injected, manifold comes under and through swing arm, please tell me after all the designing of the new frame the manifold doesn't need altering, its only that went to fit it tonight and seems to hit frame when trying to connect to engine??? Thanks a lot. Will

Mines a 2007 and had no problem with manifold.Are you trying to put the manifold on complete with catalytic converter ? With mine I used yamaha exhaust down to exup valve and rtr supplied Y piece to split to twin cans. Had to alter the Y piece for mine but it should fit straight on yours with a 2004 engine
Yep its the same manifold which came of the engine Paul, yes it still has the cat attached, is this where the problem is? It also has a y piece which is not connected yet, on the bike the exhaust exited through the centre of the swing arm then in to two muffs, would like to keep them if poss. I may have a good look tomorrow mate or give RTR a buzz. Cheers Will.
I just wondered why the frame might not have a selection of mounting holes on the side brackets for a number of different engines maybe? After all my engine probably won't last forever, so it would be nice to be able to choose a different engine knowing I could easily fit it in the frame should I no longer be able to source what is now a 1999 engine.
Hi there, would like to add some pics, can't see where to attach them, any ideas lads?? With the Harness being injected, is there any parts of this harness I can ignore as there are some connections that don't seem to go anywhere? Cheers Will
Hi Will if you open a dropbox account (free) you can share the link to your photos. there are instructions somewhere on here about how to upload photos. I would reccomend you search online for a wiring diagram for your model R1 and do an a3 print out so you can check each wire as you go. Dont remember there being any wires on mine that were unused. there are quite a few sensors and swiches on the clutch, brake and side stand. side stand switch makes a useful immobilser which can be hidden somewhere in the front. Clutch switch will stop you starting in any gear except neutral, which is a pain as the tr1ke is quite easy to stall. Mine only got tested for ten minutes up and down th back lane before coming back in to connect thee clutch switch.
Thanks Eric, being a plumber I know all about nightmares!! Its very tight to under side of engine 5-10mm max clearance, decided to get a pro in to see what can be done ant I will mention that idea mate thanks. Erik what did you do by the way with your stand sensor along with the cut out switch that's on the harness, any ideas ?? Many thanks, Will
The cut out switch do you mean the fall over tip sensor? If so the one I had on a Kawasaki ZZR1400 engine needed to be set on a flat surface and make the engine run making sure its running fine. Then crack open the sensor and silicone it in place. If you don't mean this then I will shut up ;-)
Hi Will, the line of your exhaust looks about the same as mine was. I used a stainless piece from rtr which kicks it up to run through the chassis and splits in to two to run along the swing arm either side. If you wanted to keep the original exhaust route and the cat you would have to make up an adapter from sections of a 90 degree bend. Im sure rtr could email you a picture of how that part is made up. I have taken a picture of mine which should show you the general shape. Hope this helps www.dropbox.com/s/5afl1n1arox6vqx/IMG_0469.JPG www.dropbox.com/s/5g3aggg1jq70hmz/IMG_0470.JPG
