Re: ZX7RR Build.

Jason is getting them through the dealer, so there will no difference in price.

The Kwaka parts on the other hand are about 1/2 the price of Yamaha, for the same sort of item... go figure?

Re: ZX7RR Build.

Con-rods have been resized, each available bearing size was purchased and plasti-gauged. We have settled on a size, and ordered bearings for the remaining 3 rods. Unfortunately they don't have stock locally, so they are on their way from Japan. I've updated the photo's FB deleted, and will have some...

Re: ZX7RR Build.

I'll get moving on this lol. They will be words of joy to Jason's ears, but the truth is we are close to engine assembly. I'm still working on the rods, but not far away. Once that job is done, it is just assembly. The delimer regarding the oil pump-alternator drive could not be resolved without the...

Re: New family member

I've been thinking about 2 strokes! :shock: The ATK 700 intimidator engines are available to purchase stand alone from ATK in the USA. 700cc 78 rwhp. Chain and kick start on the same side as the Husaberg 501 so a relatively easy fit up? The 501 engine makes 52 hp, so that will probably be enough to ...

New family member

I picked this one up for not much money. It's a Husaberg FE501E 2001. It's the newest bike in my shed! :lol: It's not running, but I think it is something simple. It needs the normal going over, fork seals, shock service, fluids, check everything. It has massive compression. It will have to take a b...

Dunno Kiwi, I don't think he raced that one, he might have been on his 88 Yamaha Australia FZR1000?

Re: Getting things back in order

Woohoo! Missed you Hooli. Let's hope we can breath a bit of life back into this old girl (forum). Facebook is just a waste of time in many respects, with people caustically venting, with nothing good to say. There is a way of getting our photobucket Photos back up, (for those who didn't delete their...

Re: My latest Bimbo

Whist I've got this one under restoration, I decided to build another two. Both are likely to be race bikes. This one is my 'Golden Child' lol. For obvious reasons. The frame has been modified behind the carbs to accommodate 41mm FCR's. It will be equipped with Ohlins front and rear. http://i.imgur....

While on face value it looked okay, it was in fact bloody dirty.
