  1. Working on the Impulse at the moment, ultrasone cleaning carbs asdjusting valves. I havent got a manual but i do have a manual for a gsxr 400, i am wondering if tolerances on float height and valves are the same ? Or is there someone here who has a manual for an Impulse ?? Thanks in advance !
  2. @rich2302the upper rearmount is indeed bolted through the frame left and right side

    Happy on both sides of the pond !
  4. Bike has been repaired months a go, it's up for sale. Check out the up for sale section.
  5. Back in Holland Had a blast, book behaved good although front suspension is still not stiff enough so back to the drawingboard. Got free lessons from my mate wich resulted in better bodypostion, better lines and lower laptimes. So happy man !
  6. 15 till 18 januari @t Almeria again to escape the cold weather in Holland. Been at the dyno and got af sorted nice lineair curves and 148 BHP at the Wheel very good imho for a 16 year ook enige wich stood for a couple of years. Installed four other injectors, now fault indications are past time. Installed heavier front springs and a laptimer and got a bigger rearsprocket wich i will install at Almeria. So the bike is ready to go !
  7. Circuito de Almeria Aftermath From the 1st till the 4th of October I went to Spain for some tracktime @ Circuito de Almeria with Focused Events Rain and 12 degrees in Holland so it wasn't a punishement to fly to Almeria where the sun shines and 15 degrees warmer. Still when you land and step out off the plain the heat hits you like a brick wall, dont get it wrong we are not complaining. Day one was all about getting used to the heat and get the feel of the track again, bear in mind that I crashed at Almeria last year so for me it was quite a challenge to overcome my fears. After a few laps i felt comfy and suddenly had my first near highsider on the 1000 Srad. Time for new tyres, And remind a 1000K4 is not the same as a slabby 750.... Day two was all about trackinstruction under the guidance of Steve Brogan wich was very helpfull. At the last session of the day the air valve of the rearwheel decided not to cooperate wich left Me with a flat tyre while i was braking at the straight with 250 kmh. Imagine a bike braking out to left and right with that speeds luckily i managed to keep the bike under control and didn't crash. Whole day long it was a problem to do constant laps the bike was misbehaving in high speed bends downhill, wich ment there was work to do, Day three was a perfect day, after getting some suspension advise from Bob Stöpler and put into use sorting the rearwheel I was back in business. Finally hitted the apexes like i wanted so managed to get the laptimes like i had last year. The bike started too behave wich gave confidence. A while back ik fitted the k7 slipperclutch and i can recommend a slipperclutch to everyone it’s awesome ! Day four was all about getting home in one piece so no rush to get better laptimes. Riding lines lines lines lap after lap. Skipped the last session to load up gear and bikes into the crates. It was a perfect Track Holiday superb weather, nice hotel, good food, and friendly spanish folks. I can recommend trackdays abroad to everyone !! Back in Holland now rain and even colder 9 degrees. Hopefully next time in Spain Team Banana will be in it's full form accompanied by @Rene EFE and @Jelly A big thanks to everyone who was there with Me and offcourse Focused Events for the perfect organisation and hospitality
  8. I seem to remember Blair Mccaul is running an 11 slabby draw through without notched frame his tb is mounted under an angle to clear the frame
  9. It wil fit i had a gt 2560r on my slabby, just put it real low and off center you’ll be fine. Yes low on space but it fits a 17 inch wheel wil help too
  10. The whole experience on the thou was quit interesting Croix is not the best track for a thou your better of with a 600 there i reckon
  11. I get your point, the alloy sprocket is still usable but never had that kind of wear on a steel one before. Friend of my does about 5 or 6 trackdays with an alloy one hes a thou too Croix is a start and stop track so that doesn’t help either. The chain i am using is not brand new and might not be up to the hp the thou has, for example it could stretch to much wich causes the Wear. I Bought a few 520 chains from a raceteam that stopped racing with 600’s. Gonna put on the steel sprocket and see what happens, it needs to last 4 days in Almeria after that i might buy everything new. Going for diff gearing also cause Almeria needs more topspeed
  12. I did it this way worked for me, plan B was ultrasonic cleaning but not neceserry.
