boxer racer project



 left the pipes for a couple of day's for the paint to harden off before handling them, tonight i fitted them, swapped the bolt's that fasten the footpeg hanger's for a couple of 8mm stud's,  [cut the head's off a couple of 50mm set screws instead of  getting the die's out] the bolt's were too long to clear the shaft drive without a lot of fiddling about, if it's a pain when the bikes on the bench then you can double it if you're scratting about on your hands and knees in a paddock somewhere, easy to remove now and locked off with a dab of 240 and a nyloc nut for security, job's a good 'un......

  3. hi Ben, sorry you're struggling with the k clutch, what's the problem there? i thought they were supposed to be bomb-proof,we won't make snet, hoping to get bike up and running for lydden, got to get a couple of practice day's in to dial everything in, i'm thinking of bolting a numberplate on, getting some tax and running it on the road to get some miles on it......
