I have been busy with spring time obligations, but have found a little time to tinker with the project.
Just a few things happening:
I have a friend who has access to a machine shop making me a top clamp. I wanted to use clip-ons, but don't think the geometry is correct for that unless I push the foot pegs back some. So I will have pro taper bars instead.
I also have a complete front brake assembly coming to me in working order. I don't want to use the anti dive mechanism, so I will simply remove that side from the circuit so I will only have a single front disc. I like the idea because it allows me to shed some weight. I will also drill holes in the rotors (front/back) to aid in braking and also to shed some weight.
I located a battery tray for a good price and have installed that.
A free Ninja 250 tank is now in my possession. While it doesn't really fit, I like the shape and will try to 'make' my own tank by cutting this one up and shaping some new pieces. I'll tack it in place, but will have a professional weld it up. (This should be interesting)
I need to figure out which rear sprocket to use. The only thing I know right now is that it needs to be .100 of an inch thinner to match the one on the YZ engine.
Adding a clutch perch so I can use a stock clutch cable should not be a problem, but I need the front brake handle assembly so I can figure out how to retrofit a stock throttle cable to the YZ's carb. I may have to have one made if it doesn't work together.
I also have a stock YZ400 kick starter coming my way. I think it'll have to be heated and bent a little to make it miss the foot peg, but only by an inch or so.
