You'll probably find that once it's 'done' you'll find a whole bunch of little things that could be modified/fixed/tidied up. Builds like this aren't ever finished. At least that's what I've found with the cars/bikes my dad and uncles have done over the last 30 years.

Richard,

Ummm. I think you took it 100% the wrong way. I'm saying that it's a great idea to take the best bits from various models to make your ultimate bike. Similar to what Singer do with Porsches. I meant it in a very good way.

I think your build is great and would love to do something similar at some point in the future (i.e. when I could afford it).

So... yes. I do like your build.

Sorry if you took offence as none was meant.

ive had a busy day with the bike today,

first i got to worrying that i mad a mistake, considering i had a major engine failure i cleaned every part, i started to think i hadnt cleaned the flywheel stator!! so i took the engine casing and stator off again and found lots of metal bits stuck down deep in a recess right at the back of the stator, a stupid mistake but at least its done now no damage and very little time lost

so with that out the way i put on the timing belts and covers, and found this to be a really smooth job to do the belts were cycleworks belts

i then set about the wiring harnesses they are all plugged in and made neat and tydy, also put the new airbox rubber on the airbox added the airbox, trumpets, seat and tank to the bike, im hoping for the last time. and added the 996r rad to make shure it fits nice and snug (it dose)

i also came across a problem with the sprocket carrier when fitted catches the swingarm so i need a slightly thicker sprocket spacer not a major issue but i cant put the chain on until this is done

the exhaust is done!! wooohooo!!!

firstly a huge thankyou to Lynton at Norfolk mobile welding svc. (uk)

hes done a fab job on the 1098 exhaust i had and cut and shut it all within 9 hours, to look at it you would never know that it came from another bike.

i prepped the bike by removing anything that i thought would be in the way, like the right hand rearset, wiring and the seat unit. and using a ratchet strap to hold the mufflers in the correct place, lynton set to work by firstly cutting allong the to just behind the joint near the shock, to get the header collector to sit in the right position, using another exhaust i brought (just for the cans) he cut out the section on the spare mid section where the two exhausts come together, it was just the right shape to fabricate the first part of the trumpet needed to join the header to the new exhaust.

usung me as a clamp he put the first tacks in place, i should add ther was a lot of taking the exhaust off and putting it back on to make sure it was a good tight fit.

once tacked in place and with very hot fingers(me) it all came off again and lynton fabricated another section for the underside of the header and set about closing it all up. first bit done.

the next problem was..... with the exhaust being bigger the fairing would not closeup due to the "u" shaped part of the exhaust standing proud by about 25mm so lynton cut out 25mm or so and closed it up, at one point the earth lead slipped off the pipe and lynton shot himself with god knows how many amps in the hand, (this was not the last time) anyway this part was very quick and it was not long before that part was closed up, while that was being done he also cut off the button from the back of the exhaust valve and welded the valve open. second bit done!!

Now at this point Lynton should have been going to another job that he had booked but he carried on (thankyou)

pretty much the same drill on the front header as the rear, using the spare mid exhaust section he cut and shaped the part that was to form the first part of the trumpet, i should add that when doing this we had to be sure that the nuts that hold the exhaust headers on would fit, it was tight but i can get a spanner on them anyway it was the same thing again making sure there was plenty of room from the exhaust and the engine (dont want to boil the oil) lynton set about tacking the first part in place, whilst using me as a clamp, very hot fingers and burning leather, once tacked off it came and the last closing piece was shaped up and then the whole thing closed.

all this work and skill cost me 250 a bacon role and a few cups of coffee and again i would just like to thank lynton for all of his hard work and for putting himself out to help me get my project moving

now the only problem i have is the bellypan fouls on the exaust under the engine, but i knet this would be the case and a couple of minuets with the dremmel should sort this out, but on the whole to look at the exhaust the untrained eye would never know that the exhaust on my bike belongs to a 1098 and not a 996

i have loads of photos of the process from start to end but they are on my phone and i cant put them on the computer yet so for now i have a few of the end product for you to look at, enjoy
