I know it's not an EXUP, but I'm pretty excited to get her out on track!

dude,

Doesn't need to be Exup at all, you had me at TZ! Let alone that's a properly aligned intake/exhaust engine, and boasting Marvic wheels. Whenever you're done with that one..... Pick me please, that is if you move it and yourself to Canada.

Are those the stock calipers or brembos of some sort? The carriers don't look stock either, although I honestly can't says I know nearly enough about TZ's

I'll have it out at all (4) of our events this summer in Canada, stop out and say hi! I'm the guy with the clipboard yammering on at the rider's meeting. LOL

Those are Sumitomo calipers, actually the exact same as the FZR1000 I believe. They were an upgrade from the originals.

I don't think CSBK is coming to Edmonton this year, not sure if they're down in Calgary either, that's assuming you're even playing with CSBK at all this year.

Super Sweet!

Here's one of mine, no longer have it, I think it lives in a glass case somewhere in Western Australia.

No CSBK this year. Obviously I'll be at all 4 VRRA rounds, but I also just launched the re-vamped version of the Am-Can Series so that'll eat up my extra travel time this summer.

Nice 125 spook! I live in fear of the glass case prison...

86, first of the alloy frames. :thumbup: You could fit a second disc and caliper to them as there was provision to do so.

All four dates are in the East, "the" holy land in Canada so to speak. Yes, there is quite a large dislike between Atlantic, and Pacific Canada, mainly due to the idea that Toronto believes it to be the centre of the earth.

I would love to come out to the one of the races, but alas the locale negates the idea. If anything happens to any of the dates and you find yourself out west, lemme know, if not this year, maybe next.

Not sure now with the theft, but I used to have enough parts to build two machines, I wanted to make a FZR/YZF hybrid machine for the track as well as the street and take that one racing with the EMRA. We lost our really good track, although it was more of go-karting track, good for 400's, Castrol Raceway is a little scary with a very limited run off in several areas. There's a concrete barrier in Calgary's track that's claimed waaaaayyy too many lives, tough to maintain tracks(and roads) in our climate
