The Bodywork of my GS1000 was raced by Dirk during previous times. Also the swingarm was braced by him.

Dirk did that swingarm as well its from 3 different bikes 

Although I think he is still trying to rebuild the yellow school bus

Allways loved the srad endurance tails. What rad you using on the srad? 

Hi I believe the rad is from a gsxr 1000 Lo8 /9 so new model is also comes with a proper oil cooler the rad does require some mods

Had a bit more time to start getting the srad ready to race at first outing this season at donny and my sprayer  managed to speed up a lot and sort my tank

so following a bit of advice from dupersunc on how to stick it to the tank 

Now looks like something from blakes seven 

Carbs ultrasonically cleaned oil catch tank and electrics sorted tail unit down and stickers applied to the pearl white paintwork which was a pain to apply on the compound curves think I will get image works to do my spare bodywork

Few more pictures of the bike with its clothes on the upper fairing brace still needs to be made and some odd spacers for the brembo rear brake torque arm and add the top stripe to the fairing

its paint not a sticker so unfortunately not part of the sticker kit and it would be a nightmare to fit 

The big race radiator first nicely inside the fairing and I won't bother with the fan 

I have fitted a cut away sprocket cover and some concentric swingarm bushes that allow adjustment the swingarm pivot position

Coming on nicely now Mark.

Not looking bad is it thats the silencer that nine w managed to weld the ti and oil catch tank and a friend made some braided hoses for me I think he tests them up to 100 bar so should be fine

Had a Bit of luck i have been looking on the webike website for a set of fcr downdraft keihin carbs but they are quite pricey and then added possible import tax gulp

this is because I had almost given up hope of finding some used ones and the added problem is they only sold the gsxr srad 750 wt for one year with carbs before going injection route and i wanted to avoid buying some r1 yzf zxr etc and having to take them apart to adjust the spacing to my gsxr 

A notification popped up on a slingshot forum for some 39mm fcr carbs and the picture showed some downdrafts a deal was agreed and

6 days later I ve got them, very happy probably not enough time to set them up for my first race at Donington in three weeks but should be alright for combe in June
