  1. The linkage between the 2 bikes is quite different. There are a few ways to make it work, but require a bit of engineering.
  2. There's some well priced stuff appearing for sale again now, seen a few sub £2k il4 1000cc bike in the last few weeks. I love my oil boilers, I've got 2 that 150+bhp, and 2 130+bhp plus 2 Italian vtwins. But if you want go fast with no hassle, a 2005> on zx10r (paid £2500 for mine 18months ago) Gsxr1000, R1. CBR1000rr can't be beat.
  3. To be fair my mates v4r is firmly in the sit down this will take some time category....the cost is in the is there a paramedic on stand by category. Lovely thing though.
  4. All of it. Not in the first 2 gears granted, but once you are upright and pinned it's all there if you want it. A mate has a v4r track bike with extras that's making a real 235bhp. It's fucking mental makes everything else look like it's going backwards on the straights. Still only 0.2 quicker than my 130bhp slabby round Jerez though.
  5. Yean, my comment was a little unfair, but most at the big operators are free for a reason. Then again I've a couple of mates who intruct at classic bike track days, who are both great instructors but they can't instruct everyone on the day, and boy do you see some interesting riding on those days.
  6. You ever used one of the free "instructors"
  7. They're all having fun so who cares how fast they are.
  8. Yep. 1127 and 1157 same. 1052 and all 750 same. 600. Who cares.
  9. They aren't as refined as a modern il4 1000cc motor but have a flatter torque curve. 150rwhp will be an event on a bandit, fast and visceral, induction noise without an airbox makes everything feel more violent than 170bhp of modern motorcycle.
  10. Good spot. The marks on the inlet side do look more like FOD.
  11. I'm going to say detonation, if it was foreign object damage it wouldn't be localised to one part of the piston. The exhaust side is usually where det starts.
  12. Modifying alloy wheels used to be a common practice, but since the advent of cheap wider oem wheels its not a common practice any more. No problem in theory doing it, but you'll need another rear wheel to cut up and donate rim sections. The work won't be cheap. Concept racing gave done vw car wheels in the past, which were polished finish. Another option is to go to someone like Taylormade. If there is material in the right place,you can get rim machined off and drill holes to mount a spun alloy rims.
  13. Would a 2t detonation counter do the job? https://www.Eblag.co.uk/itm/192438540664
  14. What have you guys done about the chain line? The sprocket on the srad/tl/busa wheels are 10mm further out than bandit.
