Oil tank should be made of polypropylene and should withstand fuel. As you know the standard breather twins out of the front of the fuel tank and goes down behind the battery box. I think we can come up with a nicer and more elegant solution than that.

@jusutus I loved reading this entire thread, especially how you were able to source parts from all over the world. Needless to say your bike is gorgeous. Where in Finland do you live? I go there (Vantaa) frequently for business. I hope to get to Lapland this year.

Thanks dude :)

I live on the southwest coast, about 170km from Vantaa.

What wheels are those? They're gorgeous. I Google image searched them and only got clocks. Maybe Rolex makes them, lol.

Hiya,

got some Swedish billet porn a few weeks ago. These were 2nd hand but never had brake fluid in them, also priced noticeably lower than new ones so I bought them despite the silver color.

Had a quick fit on the bike and they looked like shit with the new black triples. So something had to be done.

A whole lotta parts in a single master cylinder...

Aluminium parts anodised black, screws replaced with Ti, new bearing sleeves:

:love:

I have been using the same ISR masters on my R1 for a while. My only small complaint is the levers are a bit squared off and as a result are slightly uncomfortable on the fingers. Way cool though. The looks match the performance !!

Dang those look incredible! How do they compare to the master cylinders you had before??
I currently have the original semiradial master cylinders and these are not yet mounted, so can't comment on the functionality.

On the stock brake master the bore/pivot distance is 18/19mm and the ISR has a 15.87mm bore with an adjustable 3:1-6.6:1 leverage ratio. According to ISR it should work well with dual 4-piston calipers (I'm running the Brembo HPK 30/34 calipers).

The stock clutch master is 15/18mm and the ISR is 14mm, yet again with an adjustable pivot. I'm hoping I can find the "sweet spot" with the adjuster, I have an Oberon 29mm slave cylinder and RS clutch pack with quite stiff springs.

I need to raise my hat to Ecke @ ISR - even though I did not buy anything from him (this time) his customer service was perfect. He even let me know the alloy types used on each part on the cylinders to make sure the anodiser can do his job properly!

I have been using the same ISR masters on my R1 for a while. My only small complaint is the levers are a bit squared off and as a result are slightly uncomfortable on the fingers. Way cool though. The looks match the performance !!
I always ride with quite thick gloves so hoping this won't be an issue :) I'm a huge fan of the looks as well - very industrial, love it.

I love squared levers. I find them more comfortable than any oem lever. They are just more delicate to adjust them so that you don't feel edge of the lever

According to the LV owners it sounds epic, much better (deeper) than Termi. Here's a slip-on:


I have the LV for sale... ;)
A license plate will unfortunately spoil the look of the back. In Australia we are luck to have tiny plates and no tax disc, unlike the U.K. where you are required to bolt on a small table top and silly round saucer to the rear. (I know your not in the U.K.)
I've always thought the motorcycle plates in the UK were fugly, but from an LEO's point of view, they are beautiful. It's difficult to read a USA plate chasing a rabbit at 120mph.

There's no kool like old skool



Not that a 999 is old, but the cool thing about Isabella is she reminds me of a Yenko/COPO Camaro from back in the day: most people would just go "Ooooh, that's a nice 999 (Camaro)..." these days and keep walking, but those in the know catch a detail here or there, stop for a closer look, then realise they are looking at something very special.

Great to see her out and about Jussi.
Ditto, great comparison. I was going to say, only members of this forum can truly appreciate what their eyeballs are feasting on.

The stem nut isn't exactly the same shade as the Speedymoto triple but I guess it will do >:) All the colors in the pic are f*cked regardless.

Your 5D and Photoshop/Camera Raw can fix that.

Hi Jusutus,

I started to ride with the sheepskin seat. It is quite comfortable when compared with the seat support bracket.

I am joking.? Your build is the most elegant I have ever seen. Gorgeous bike.
