5. can a quikshifter fit on a carb bike as i see they all plug into a pc .
6 finally has anyone made a newer fairing fit this bike ive done the rear end but not front .
cheers cuys ..
1- I guess as long as the correct set of warning lights is there and the RPM signal is the same frequency it should work. Thought about Vapor or other aftermarket clock sets?
2- The original RWU forks aren't very bling, but they are quite good. You can stay with them, fit a 17" from a CBR400 or CBR600f3 for the tyre choice and you can also use the gold brakes off a 929/954/600rr3-4 and these are every bit as good as radial stuff on the road.
3- I wouldn't even try it, fuel lights are generally notoriously inaccurate anyway. Just get good at flicking the (quite easy to grab) nob while moving.
4- looks great, but I can't see how it would handle any better. If anything you'll be swapping a good rear brake for a known crap one, and a relatively flickable 180 for a wider 190 tyre. We know it works but we do not really know if it gives ideal linkage rising ratios. I'd still consider it anyway as it looks wicked.
5- not tried it but I think yes, as the shifter interrupts the ignition not the fuel. Is it worth it though, for the road I doubt it?
6- there's at least one on here with an '08 race fairing. Anything fits anything with a few brackets and such. Things like engine cutouts won't be lined up nicely though. What tail have you done, and where's the pics please?
Got to ask, if you like this old bike so much why are you trying to turn it into a later one?
