Building 3 1125s this year,2 will be mildly modified stockers. But a bit lower than last year,hopefully be able to get the rear suspension working at last. 3rd bike will be heavily modified, new front subframe to carry all electrics and lower fairing about 4". Trim panels made to hide the electrics. Rads removed,to be replaced by a single rad in the tailpiece. New air feeds cut through the frame,into the pod area. To allow some proper ram air to start with,but also give me a route to get pressurised air from a turbo or supercharger. 1125 motor is too tall to fit in the chromoly chassis that I have,so I'm going to make a swingarm to take the 7"slick and bars.

Cheers Dude, so bright it glows in the dark. It'll look even better with a little nitrous bottle squeezed in the arm.!!!! Finished all the electrics today. 750cc injectors fitted,only chainguard and race numbers left to do. Just need the snow to F**k off so Albert can come fit me a sidewinder. Looks nice in red too!!! Don't know what colour to do for no3. lol

Nice, it looks like you managed to get a straight line between the front and rear sprocket! This is going to be interesting to see how it handles at the race track!

Lowering the rear also had a beneficial effect up front. Loads more rake,should be much more stable. Hopefully now she'll stick and I can get the 60's down. If not I'm going slick n bars until I can do a complete redesign of the rear suspension.

No1 ready to roll! APH sidewinder prototype fitted on std headers. Adjustable 4" either way. Also going to compare nose and pods vs full fairing. Cheers Al,above and beyond the call of duty,thanks mate. Oh sounds awesome!!!!

New swing arm works so well the bike is now bogging on the line due to so much grip. Back to 1.50 60fts on standard clutch.
