I saw your 4th picture in the first post and thought to myself "is that the end of the pit wall at RA?" That was before I looked back and saw the picture (or 2) at Blackhawk and knew you lived in the Midwest.
The master that you got with the bike is def not stock, I believe they are Nissin MC on Gen 4 and Brembos on the Gen 5 (all Brembo braking on Gen 5 including discs).
When you mounted the red chain holder onto the swingarm did you have to add another threaded hole? or are those already there for the rear fender/tire hugger?
I look forward to seeing the progression of the bike, especially when you didnt have a whole complete bike to begin with. Hopefully I can get to see the bike in person at RA or Blackhawk this coming summer.
Yeah, I did RA with the ol 1000RR and then did one last day at BHF before retiring the cbr. I'm in Waukesha so I'm right in the middle of RA and BHF which is awesome!
Yeah, the master didn't look right when I bought the bike so I got a little upgrade for it...
I just drilled a hole next to the oem mudflap mounting point and smacked in a threaded insert in there to secure the chain holder. You could probably get by with just the one that holds the mudflap down but I figured I'd safety wire the two screws to each other.
Just met with the doctor the other day and they are thinking 6-9 months of physical therapy so I'm hoping to hit that hard so I can at least make it to the track by the middle or end of the season. I got "Hoppa" on the back of my suit so if ya see me, come say hi!
Ah, just saw that a few pages back. Do you have to trim the lowers to fit the Graves low-mount exhaust?
Can't confirm the graves exhaust with the woodcraft fairings...however, my buddy had a set of fairings from a different manufacturer and he had to cut a half moon shape at the back corner of the lower.
I have the same body that's how I know. Not sure about the low mount but Armour bodies are pretty good about not cutting or trimming. Hell, even my kickstand would still work on the bike with the belly pan on. The mounting holes were right where they need to be and if you find center with a drill bit this body bolts on very easy. Maybe a 15-20 minute job to mount! If your thinking of going with a Woodcraft body you won't be dissapointed!
yeah, I agree, the fitment was great on these...everything lined up perfectly. I just wish the fairings didn't have a hole to use the middle frame mount bolt. So annoying to have all DZUS fittings and then that one stupid bolt. Also contemplating a front quick release design for the fairing stay since that requires four bolts as well. I tend to work on my bike more than I ride it due to stupid work getting in the way of my fun so quick release is my best friend.
