    frinesi2 Phase I Build Thread

    Well folks, the time has come. I've been gathering up parts for a while and I finally got my bike over to my parent's garage to start Phase I of my Master Plan.

    Here's what's going on the bike:

    Basic Service
    I mean come one, it's been sitting for 10 months ...

    Front End Swap
    06/07 GSX-R 750 forks
    06/07 CBR600RR caliper & 310 mm disk (probably going to run a single front brake)
    CBR929RR wheel & axle
    ProTaper Pastrana FMX bars

    Controls & Such
    ProTaper Profile clutch perch & lever
    CBR1000RR radial master cylinder
    Trail Tech Vapor/Striker dash
    Custom lanesplitter mirrors

    Rear End
    Ducati Monster S2R800 eccentric, cush, sprocket, spindle, rotor, caliper mount, rear wheel, etc. with a custom spacer made by behindthetimes, courtesy of slo1
    Brembo P32 rear caliper
    Whatever little custom piece I need to make to secure the caliper mount to the swingarm
    Fox Twin Click with Hyperco spring (1400 lb/in)

    Other Bits & Things to Think About
    Frame sliders courtesy of reload
    Cleaning up the install of the choke relocation lever from wildwhl
    Getting some new brake lines ordered once I figure out what I actually need/want
    Powder coating my new wheels & rear spring bright freaking orange because why not
    Figuring out what kind of headlight I want to install
    Cleaning up botched wiring from the PO
    Wiring up pressure banjo switches to the brake lights
    Remove the clutch handle switch from the starting circuit
    Deciding if I want to keep the horn to toss it
    And much, much more!

    So, that's about it, for now. Pictures will come as I do neat stuff. This should be fun!

    How about decluttering and opening up the shock area and relocating the fuel pump ??

      Oh yeah, forgot about that, haha. I like the idea of relocating the stock fuel pump for now. Pods, stage 3 jet kit, mikuni, etc. are all Phase II, but since I'll have everything pulled apart I can do some clean up too.

        Looks like you've got a solid plan, Eric. I've got BTT's Duc rear wheel setup also, so if you have any questions, I can take some close up pictures of how it all goes together.

          Actually that would be really helpful. Did you use the stock Ducati brake mount? I'd be curious to see how you mounted the caliper.

            I drilled and tapped a second hole below the stock mount in the sssa.Used a piece of 1.25 x..125 304 SS flatstock to make a brake stay. Ends up using the Duc caliper mount in the Duc position....

                A single 310mm disc should be plenty to stop a Hawk, so I don't see the point of the added weight and complexity of a dual disc setup.

                  Agreed - but you can get a 320 or 330 in the same holes.

                    I run a single 320 w 6pot ,had Carrozzeria remove the rotors mounts on right side of the wheel....Hawk should have one rotor unless you're racing.Agreed.

                        There have even been some pretty quick racers running with one rotor. Scotty Ferguson comes to mind.

                          Hit a minor setback. The CB1000R steering stem is 20 mm too long. Gotta pop it out, stick it on a lathe, and shorten it. If I'm feeling lazy I'll just add 25 mm to the upper bearing surface. If I can get on a lathe that can do metric threads I'll chase the threads longer and cut some off the top for the "factory fit." Guess that would save me having to make a spacer too.

                            Or, press out your original stem and replace. IIRC Honda stems are the same width.

                              That's an option too. I discussed it at length with some other members in chat and some friends of mine who know a thing or two and honestly I think turning down a short bit of bearing surface is the most straightforward option for me.
