  1. I think I might have devised a remedy I have an engineer/ fabrication mate I’ll get to weld a treaded insert on the bottom of the r6 shock to run a rose joint?
  2. So I’m now looking to change the rear shock out on my slabbie 1100 ive read about doing a swap with an r6 shock that’s relatively straight forward. having discussing this with a friend of mine who races r6s he replied I have one that’s never seen action as it came off a brand new bike in 2017 to be replaced for a race shock. struck a deal obtained said shock. Having now compared this shock to my stock slabbie shock the bottom mount is completely different and is too short anyway. the question is. is there a bracket that needs making to make this work or have I got the wrong shock?
  3. So I’ve been abit quiet for a while on here I’ve been busy with other none oss projects but I’ve managed to get on with the slabside abit. i was going to run clip Ons and an endurance style fairing but I just couldn’t get on with it so back on with the drag bars and a pair of cibbies . ive added a pair of triumph 6pot callipers and wavey discs too and I’ve been back out and about on it
  4. Yeah that’s what I thought, was reluctant to alter the yoke, guess I’ll have to man up and get the grinder out
  5. How did you get on with ignition barrel clearance to the fairing mounts on the frame? because on the L front it hits.
  6. Thanks for the advice all. ive managed to acquire a 750L frontend as that’s what budget allowed. I’ve polished the yokes and got it mounted I’ve decided also to run clipons and restyle the bike in an endurance style. I’ve got a janky old fairing mounted on the wall in my shed I’ll slap that on for now just to see how I get on as I’ve only ridden streetfighters for the last 6/7 years if I like it I’ll tap up Mr Fibreman for new fairings and make it look pretty.

    I like that tail unit, Bought a 750 slingshot roller with a 1052 I plan on starting properly in the not too distant future not sure what to do for tail unit, maybe rgv or German fighter unit? im definitely running twin cibies up front though

  9. Is that to go with the 1000 front end ? I know the 750 slingshot fronts are shorter but the 1000s seem considerably shorter?
  10. Thanks for the tips, my mates running k2 1000 front end on his slabside reckons it rides well. They just seem a bit short so I didn’t know if that would be a hinderance

    Nice stance, I’d change the headlamp if I was being fussy ( iam being very fussy) did you build the bike yourself?
  12. Morning all. this is my daily ride 1100 slabside with a 1127 in it. The other day the fork seals blew on it and I’ve taken it as an excuse to maybe upgrade the otherwise soggy front end I’ve been looking into options of maybe running progressive springs in what’s already there or converting to an upside down set up I’ve stumbled across a complete 750L front end ? just wondering what other people have gone for and what might be the best option before I start spending money? thanks in advance Steve
  13. Lovely pair you have there, that 1100 is fully my bag nice work
  14. Tell me about it think I’m going to need a copious amount of mr muscle to get all that blue off it’s not just Levers they’ve done haha
  15. Thanks mate, Its only 20mins up the road from my workshop I shall pay the man a visit see what’s what at least itll be a starting point
  16. This is what I’m up against.
  17. I might have an 1127 pick up would that work?
  18. Thanks I’ll post up progress when there is some
  19. Thanks the problem I have is that not only has the plugs been thrown in the bin but they’ve also cut out a lot of the original wiring and replaced them with all red or all black wires so nothing makes sense, what I’m after is something like top left terminal on the cdi goes to coil etc ?
  20. I’ll have a check tomorrow I know there’s 2 wires come back from the pickup to the cdi I just don’t know where they’re meant to plug on to it
  21. Help I’ve just bought a 750 slingshot with a 1052 in it and someone in they’re infinite wisdom has cut the plugs off for the cdi unit and thrown them in the bin then put a shit tone of odd coloured wires in with blue crimp connectors on for good measure. i need to know what wire goes where from the cdi unit. I’m hoping someone has been here and can tell me the sequence or know someone who can. I’ve got some pictures of the cdi unit here. thanks in advance Steve
