    Carbon fibre body work

    I plan to do the seat unit and side panels as maybe the clock back, just sourcing good ones to mould from as mine area bit beat up. Also working on the 8" light bowl for the EFE and maybe more EFE parts but thet are big panels which may reduce the demand a bit

    Hi Guys, i have done some rough calculation on the Kat Top fairing and the rough cost looks like it would be within the £180 - £200 range in full autoclaved gloss twill. Is this something people would be still be interested in at these prices. Just gauging the demand before i stump up for moulding prices and look at the other parts

    Brake upgrades

    I put on an Accossato master cylinder and it made a hell of a difference

    Mark 1 and 2 Bandit 1200 loom

    Mk1 it is then, cheers guys for the advice. Any one got one??
  5. what are the differences between a Mk1 loom from a Mk2 ? I have a Mk1 engine for my Kat and a Mk1 CDI and i been offered a Mk2 loom at a good price
  6. Guys and girls, i have a customers 1100WN CDI that he believes is not working. We only have F,G,H,J,K,L and M and the plug pin config is different. The 6 wire plug on the earlier bikes only use 4 of the plugs whereas the water boilers use all 6. Would anyone be willing to test this for me on theirs in i send it to you?

    Hi guys, my project Kat came with an engine with the barrels and head removed. The camshafts and followers look pretty worn and I have no idea if the bottom end is good. Question is do I through money at the original lump and hope the bottom end is ok, do I do a full strip and rebuild or do I put something like a bandit 12 motor in it. It’s going to be a resto mod so originality isn’t important but I do love the look ok the old lump. Money wise toting it up in my head a bandit motor with a known history is the cheapest option or do I bite the bullet and rebuild the old girl. Any advise would be appreciated

    Just to keep you in the loop we are currently sourcing parts, we have the Kat covered and just finalising the EFE parts. Once I have them I can put together some ball park figures to make sure the project is cost effective (moulding is pretty costly)

    GSX1400 swingarm

    Hi guys. I bought a bandit arm for my Kat but when it turned up it was in a right state. I have now been offered a GSX1400 arm and wondered if anyone has used these before, it has shock mounts so if it fits without major work it’s a winner for me
