So after taking the plunge and buying myself a track bike back in 2011, I decided on a 929 as they were very good value for money, probably as they're one of the least popular of all the 'Blades! I've seen a few sub frame mods, mainly on the earlier 918's, but have also seen a couple of RR8 rear ends on 929's, so thought I'd give it a go meself!
After blagging a pal of mine, who just so happens to be an engineer, to basically carry out the mod for me around 6 weeks ago, the project's progressing nicely.. He's not been able to take the bike into his place of work, which has added time and complication due to him basically working blind, but the results are good
It's a little rough round the edges but this is in affect a trial run for something more permanent to come at a later date.
Since owning the bike I've only ridden her on three occasions due to the crap weather and general lack of time, the last ride being back in October 2012, but since taking her on I've added a full Akrapovic system, heavier KTech fork springs with track grade fluid, Ohlins rear shock, PCIII
, Armstrong front discs, EBC track grade pads (can't remember the exact name, but they cost £95!!), Renthal 520 conversion (one down on the front, two up on the rear), Harris rear sets, YZ250 motocross gear lever for reverse shift, and a new set of Pirelli SC2's..... I'd love to comment on what a difference it's made but I've not ridden her since installing any of it!! I'll get back to you on that one..
