That's the beauty of technology today - you can get stuff made if you can take the time to design it. I have on the way machined moulds for carbon rear sets which utilise a set of universal mount CNC Racing foot pegs. once I get them out of the way I will be making up drawings for different mounts to move the pegs back a bit for those that want to use them for racing.

Cool! I look forward to seeing your design.

Mike, this is the rear set setup on mine. It has the same pegs and adjustable eccentric as my 916/996 corsa rear sets.

Hope this helps.

The frame is back and I've started the initial assembly. I added an upper cross brace, similar to that on an 851/888 frame, and completely changed the rear set mounts in order to use Sport Classic rear sets.

I am really pleased with the way the mounts worked out! I now have much more adjustability, access to a wide range of rear sets, and the set-up is more solid/stiff than any of the 900 SS rear sets I've tried. Currently I've got Bonamici rear sets which are very nice.

For now the bike is sitting on OEM wheels while I wait for a new Pierbon swing arm and new OZ Gass wheels.

The motor should be done in about 2 weeks, as well. It feels great to begin seeing progress!

More progress. The motor should be together by next week. While this started as an ie conversion, the project grew to include a 1000 ds crank. Of course, the crank was lightened and balanced. It's been combined with the Carrillos and 94mm Pistals that were already in the motor.

The next step is to port match the ie inlet manifolds to the much larger inlets that were created when J Precision welded and re-shaped the ports in the heads during the last build. The o-ring grooves in the inlets had to be welded prior to port matching. This stuff is never simple.

LOL. I refer to the shop as Team OCD. They're also known as Boulder Motorsports. Great guys and a great shop.

Nice job going with the DS crank. I don't remember what you said you were doing for pistons?

Looking good

Lol - this started out as a Winter project. At this pace, it'll be a two Winter project. In any case, more (slow) progress....

Currently working on custom spacers to fit the 999 OZ Gass wheel into the Pierbon swingarm. Unfortunately, OZ doesn't make the Gass wheels for the SS.

I've also included some more pics of the rear sets. I'm pretty chuffed with the way they've come out.

I'm re-using the Pistal 94mm pistons I already had in the motor + a thicker base gasket.
