Thats the basic kit yes. I wish this bike were coming along fast, seems to take forever waiting on brake lines, master cylinder parts, tires and everything else. Not to mention doing all the research to get parts that will work together! Its been fun going though, my favorite part is finding a new part in the mailbox and running to the garage to put it on!

Tech is down to each track, very little consistency here. But no one will have a problem with that. I never did, after my 2nd year of racing, I always ran my kill switch on the left bar.

That said, you WANT the kill switch on the left handlebar. Why? Because when your throttle sticks, and you're holding on to the brake lever/bar on the right side with a death-grip, going 150+ down the back straight at Mid-Ohio, you'd really want to be able to just reach up with your left thumb and turn the motor off... But you can't....

Not to hijack the thread but for those who changed the forks to ohlins and others what did you have to do for triple clamps? I have a 2004 ss1000 race bike and would like to put a 1x98s front end on it. I would think this would be a great upgrade for forks and brakes.

Paul, You would probably be better off starting a new thread with a tech question like that...

More updates and a question about brakes:

Got new brake hardware to secure the front calipers and the bracket that ataches to the bottom of the engine that holds the rod securing the rear caliper, for some reason all of my brake hardware grew about a 1/4 inch and was to long before contacting the rotor...

1st question... which way does the bracket go on? For some reason I feel like I have the bracket that secures the rod to the engine on upside down (one side has a nice rounded edge and one side has more of a 90 degree edge, kinda like a stamped washer does). With exhuast pipes, the only way I could get the rod back to the rear caliper was with the bracket facing up (look at the pic), this routes the rod behind the horizontal exhuast pipe. With the bracket facing down it would have to go right through that pipe.









2nd question... How are you guys with SS/SP rear brake routing the brake line? The bleed valve and brake line holes are on the rear portion of my caliper facing down. The brake line for this set up that came with the other parts and pieces just does not want to fit... Pictures would be best if anyone can provide me with one!!

Finally, a short crappy muffled iphone video of the bike idling... Its pretty cold in the garage today and it was a cold start, so the FCR's didnt really want to idle smooth at all (that will be taken care of soon).

Its been a couple weeks since I posted any progress, because progress has been slow I got the brake line on and bleed, had the suspension set up by a local suspension genie and finished up the dash. Got my race front fairing in last week and fitted the bodywork. Decided on a paint scheme last night and laid the paint down on the side fairings, will do the nose and tail tomorrow!
Now for some pics...

The dash is done, aside from a ducati decal or two:



The body work mounted:


The layout of the front number plate, I have a similar one on my 916, I dig the one sided look:


Finally the paint on one of the side fairings, design stolen from the D16rr:

Here's a pic if you still need help. Bracket is correct. Brake hose goes back and up over the swingarm. Nice paint job!

Thanks for the help Joe, thats how I routed mine so I guess its right!

Got the fairings painted and wet sanded. Had to mount them up to get an idea of what its going to look like

If it's only a track bike and you won't be using a tail light, you should consider changing the radius of the curve that goes from the bottom of the solo seat section up to the cutout for the tail light. Easy to do and really improves the appearance. Look at the pic for a better explanation.

I normally don't like white paint very much, but I really like the paint scheme on your bike. Great job!

when I masked off the tail I thought it might be to much white, but after seeing it on the bike i really like it too!
