      Sorry, slow on the trigger. I was responding to the previous one:

      Anyway, I'll ask Eric. I'm talking to him anyway on his brake hanger.

        Lol - that's never happened to me.

        So - it's raining and flooding - and early on Sunday but WTF? Maybe I ought to have a few beers

        If Eric isn't doing anything soon PM me - I think I *might* have a really decent OEM slider left in the stash.

            I could fire up the other box and start drafting custom parts...or finish the CAM on some that are ready to go.

              Do that and have a brew. If you're at home and you're the boss, why not? BTW, when you sent the box of goodies, there was one engine bolt and two swingarm pivots. That's why I'm in need of one. Must of not had your glasses on that day!!

                Quite possibly. There is a 5 gallon orange bucket full of engine and swingarm bolts, all from NC29/30/35 and RC31/36.

                Launching F360 now. Seems we were in the middle of a PM somewhere so I'll find that and stop shitting all over this thread.

                  Ok carry on. Let me know too if you have any of those rearset adapters left. You posted those on your WW store but didn't see if you sold them.

                    Ahhhhhhhh yes swingarm sliders. I haven't done much with those yet. They kinda got lost on my list since I didn't need one right away. Too many irons on fire or however that goes. You might want to acquire a good condition used one for now. I'll start that project up again soon though, I promise.

                      No problem! I won't need it for awhile.

                      So, a few updates are in order:
                      1. Drilled and tapped the 6mm set screw.


                      2. Got the brake line kit from Hord. Thanks JD.


                      3. I milled down the left axle spacer 0.5mm on my lathe. Put the lower triple clamp, forks, wheel, new 320mm rotors, calipers, new CF front fender on.



                      I fitted the top clamp to check for fitment, straightness, etc.


                      I should get the new WW offset insert in the mail Tuesday.

                      4. In the back, I got a new quick change carrier and sprocket in aluminum 520 sized. It is actually half the weight of the stock steel part! (1.4 lbs vs 2.8 lbs).

                      I've been weighing everything prior to assembling it to keep track of the accumulated weight. The rolling chassis as you see it is about 130 lbs.


                      5. The back wheel is off waiting on a prototype brake hanger. I've kicked off a new design with Frinesi2 and will be checking the fitment when it arrives Tuesday.
                      Lots of parts coming Tuesday!
                      * WW offset insert.
                      * WW rearset adapters, adjustable positions. I can finalize the rearsets.
                      * Frinesi2 brake hanger proto
                      * brake pressure switch
                      * kickstand mount

                      6. Lastly, I ordered a NSF100 tail from Webike. The Kitaco version(+50mm). Luckily, it was in stock so I got in a week!




                      I got a surprise coming soon. It's a graciously donated part from Slowpoke2. Stay tuned.

                      That's it for now until after Tuesday.

                        what Ducati spindle/hub assembly are you using? so all your rear wheel assembly are Ducati? Any modification to the rear caliper required?

                          #42
                          Yes, completely Ducati except for the custom hanger. No mods to the caliper. I'll post updates to the mounting once I get it. It is missing a spacer between the sprocket and the hub. I'll probably end up making that myself.

                            Last week, I got a few packages in the mail. First to open up was WW's custom top clamp nut that he designed! For the triple clamp, I attempted to mix a bottom Monster with a top 600rr and found out the offsets were off by 2.5mm. So, WW's top clamp insert adapts the top clamp to use a different offset using an eccentric design. Nice work, WW!




                            He also threw in bunch of bits for my lathe! Thanks again!

                            I also got his rearset adapters, chain slide and the engine bolts I was looking for.

                            Here the top clamp is on. Now, most of the front end is on. I'll need to design some steering stops since I shaved them completely off.



                            Next package is Frinesi2's prototype hanger he is designing for me. He made it in acrylic so I can check fitment before he cuts aluminum.




                            The only adjustments were to offset the caliper a little since my hub is smaller. I wanted the overslung just so the caliper was more in view and it would help in bleeding it. Also, the stud he made had the wrong thread pitch. So, I tried my lathe to make my own. I'm geeked cuz I made my own stud! It's the first thing I made from scratch off my lathe. I'm such a nerd.

                            Anyway, I'm excited for the caliper hanger. It looks awesome! Thanks, Eric! I can't wait.

                            Next package is tank. It was graciously donated to the project by slowpoke2!! Story is that it was repainted black over red and the front mount was re-welded on. Also, it was previously owned by BTT. Many many thanks, Mark!






                            Finally, looking like a bike! In fact, the wifey just noticed it. She went down to do some laundry and she said "is that another motorcycle"??? Ha, I told her, it's been there for 2 months already!!

                            Next up, is the electrical system. Big job as I'll design it from scratch and only reusing the connector shells and maybe the wires. It will have new terminals and new layout. The handlebar switches are from 900rr. I have a full 900rr and a Hawk harness. So, it will be a hybrid.

                            Question for the forum. Are all the electrical harnesses the same for all the years? What are the differences, if any? I have an 88 service manual and an unknown year harness.
