Had the seat bracket that I made done in green so it blends into the frame where it fastens to the main frame. Head cooler return to the cam cover didn't fit any moras it was touching the frame rail. Once it was on its wheels I slakend all the engine mounts, engine then sank about 5mm at the back enabling the return to fit. Put the renthal bars on which have also been powdered black, fitted the side stand & wheeled it outside for a walk round it. IMG_20200907_183128.thumb.jpg.40dbfaaf5d1d5cd61249bc0e2fab3343.jpgIMG_20200908_155527.thumb.jpg.f7695267ad21aee33325d66eafae67a2.jpgIMG_20200907_184749.thumb.jpg.9ddad74ce3fcf2956ea1bd93946f689d.jpgIMG_20200908_175427.thumb.jpg.238214a9ef5e6beb199564e1f10bd008.jpgIMG_20200908_173726.thumb.jpg.628f00083155494bf6d498abda05b7a0.jpgIMG_20200908_173700.thumb.jpg.e071c33799c805f3457f1c37ab4e9f4b.jpg

Disided to use b12mk1 carbs, gave them a good buz in the ultrasonic bath converted them to a mushroom pull choke had the mounting bars re-zinked fitted 117.5 main jets & replaced all the bolts with stainless steel allen head items. Fixed them to the engine along with the plenum. IMG_20200917_181243.thumb.jpg.d6f0ddfcd50a66269fccd6901009fac0.jpgIMG_20200917_182003.thumb.jpg.528c90bf717168369aff0f8fbb9ba340.jpg

Got some heat resistant heat shrink belive it or not to cover the stainless braided oil cooler lines from the main cooler up front. Didn't want to use the black braided stuff near the exhaust as I have had it melt on the exhaust on my old b12 which resulted in the engine emptying its oil allover the back wheel. Anyway hears a few pics of what I've been doing. IMG_20200918_162206.thumb.jpg.94f05262ac733cb8f6080315d8c742bb.jpgIMG_20200918_173610.thumb.jpg.cafdfa88bc711e6aa3d98f6418964e89.jpgIMG_20200918_173621.thumb.jpg.560d7fb7ff4e8116ce31259c28bd1ac9.jpgIMG_20200918_173828.thumb.jpg.7264f6616778e1eeb33509dcc6b3851e.jpgIMG_20200918_173839.thumb.jpg.51c902db65e6f77a611593ef3993a7fe.jpgIMG_20200918_173902.thumb.jpg.1ba946a9fe8c3662fa2cbc2190a41975.jpgIMG_20200918_174131.thumb.jpg.88b6f2acc0cbcddb4a5d0b535779c89c.jpgIMG_20200918_175459.thumb.jpg.51a92a0d97a9c7d6bc398b2b0a62991d.jpgIMG_20200918_175357.thumb.jpg.d342fa76401da49c663fdf9b9a47795d.jpg

Hi @clivegto, what is the threads/tap size you put in to the clutch cover ? Looks like an option I could go with rather than welding fittings in.

M16x1.5  case is only very thin that's why I also made the 2 washer nuts up to secure them on the back of the case, will also use a dab of J. B. Weld to secure them.

That was a few minutes well spent catching up with this build. :tu





Thanks man, I will take that as a compliment. 

Got some miniature dyna coils & taylor leads from Mr Upperton. All I have to do now is figure out where exactly I am gonna fit them. IMG_20200929_170350.thumb.jpg.01980b106a871cb8f36c36021568ce97.jpgIMG_20200929_173037.thumb.jpg.fb8974d15537a718085cb412b596b3bb.jpgIMG_20200929_170634.thumb.jpg.9163bb3ea2242eeeaf472331f90c5fe1.jpgIMG_20200929_170016.thumb.jpg.bd41fb12d33b9f73802497e3b766adf7.jpg

Got a couple of little red reservoir pots for the front brake & clutch. Started to make some brackets to mount them directly over the inlet to the master cylinder (no bendy pipes) out of a old r1 swing arm. Not completely happy with these one's so will be remaking them, but you get the idea. IMG_20201001_180057.thumb.jpg.79a9db505c9b7ab7e6dc1c682609f1e5.jpgIMG_20201001_163634.thumb.jpg.1d258457b7ca8978135fe703ac3215a2.jpgIMG_20201001_165327.thumb.jpg.73ce691dc5252477938583382ba4b273.jpgIMG_20201001_172424.thumb.jpg.c184e8e158a73c6b805856e42691b413.jpgIMG_20201001_180302.thumb.jpg.f2449e91e636e0450a3d32b0490255a3.jpgIMG_20201001_175006.thumb.jpg.d609f87d35aae853adb63f2fa7b61434.jpgIMG_20201001_175049.thumb.jpg.92478994c4e2cd070a53dab1a2fdc941.jpg
