Race bike build

As the fork porn thread was moved to Suspension and Tire tech, I'll keep a running log of my race bike assembly. Please don't move this as it will have all manner of updates to it and this forum slow enough as it is.

Before...




After...




Proper tire wear...



Nifty rizoma fill plug I picked up from Al and Design Corse. Easy to safety wire.



Keyless cap, also from Al @ http://www.designcorse.co.uk/



closeup of the GP cartridge caps.

Does that crank case cover on the right do enough to pass scrutineering. Over here I have to have a bolted on guard over the clutch cover too, pain in the arse.

We'll see, as I haven't raced it yet. It's not really prone to being cracked as it doesn't stick out and the carbon guard does. I have the Sato on the other side as well, with the delrin block. I'll post some pics of that, too.

If they bitch, I'll have to get the other carbon piece, but my gixxer doesn't have one on that side and it isn't as protected

Today was a Ballistic lightweight battery and Samco hoses. As a side note, that stupid rubber boot for the positive terminal that never fits right actually fits perfectly with the Ballistic battery.

Looking good, don't stop just because we're watching. That water overflow will need to go to a catch tank too I think.

Negative on the added catch tank as the OEM catch tank is in place. Nice to have extra eyes looking though! THanks!


From our rule book.

All water-cooled motorcycles must use either plain water or plain water with an
approved coolant additive in the cooling system. Currently approved coolant
additives are Maxima brand Cool Aide, Redline brand Water
Wetter, Silkolene brand Pro CCA and RC-20, Motul brand MoCool.
Any other coolant additive must be submitted in writing to the Referee and
approved prior to use. Anti-freeze may not be used. The use of anti-freeze
and/or any other unapproved additive is subject to penalties and/or fines
per Section N. All radiator caps, drain plugs and petcocks must be safety
wired. D-Clips are PROHIBITED.
All four-stroke water-cooled engines must have a coolant overflow reservoir of
at least 8 oz. capacity (no glass and it must be made of heat resistant material)
securely attached to the machine. The coolant reservoir is to be a separate
container from any oil catch tanks. The inlet line must be mechanically clamped
to the reservoir, unless it is OEM in which the existing clamps will be allowed.
The coolant reservoir will have an outlet line which terminates in the belly pan to
avoid pressurization. Any modifications made to an OEM coolant overflow
reservoir must be made in a safe and workmanlike manner
