Here you go Pauly...loads to choose from...

And don't throw that clutch lever away...you can get some alloy putty that goes as hard as steel...just form a ball bit at the end & file to shape. You don't need a full length clutch lever anway.

well has been a quiet week but have made some progress
i have bought a yzf single seat unit and a fzr 400 brake light
have made most of the fairing brackets and have cut and positioned
the ow01/yzf pannels in place
stripped out the back wheel and the swingarm is in some state so
have ordered a polishing set off the net with 3 soap bars and mops for the drill
am still looking for a lhs pannel am watching one on evilbay that finishes
on friday so if all goes well i'll have the nosecone preped for fibreglassing together
will post some pics in the morning
i have also got my hands on a zx10 shock i've offered it up and it looks ok
will post that mod later in the project
my forks are knackered and need re chromeing so am weighing up my options
so i'm looking into a set of r6 2009 forks to slot strait into the yzf yolks
but need to get some more precise measurements
i'm gonna take my veniers steel ruler and measuring tape down to my local bike shop and take some notes on different front ends

first i had to change the front fairing stay - i have fitted fzr genesis headlights because the exup ones have slightly curved lenses
i cut off the end of the bracket where you would origionaly bolt the yzf
nose cone from the front and then ground off the clock stay and cut a
slit in the stay to reposition the clocks slightly forward and downwards





then i cut off the end of the mirror top stay and have fixed the ends to a straight bar which will be welded back on to the mount on the tank

as you can see the ow01 nose cone falls short of the yzf bellypan
but i'm surprised how both fairings follow almost the same contour

It's coming together nicely Pauly...hows about doing a few photoshop colour schemes on a mockup of the bike...just to let us see what you have in mind.

i think someone somewhere has fitted a zx1400 shock but not sure what they fitted it to
i remember reading somewhere they had to turn the reservoir towards the engine and there was a big list of shocks and the length and rates
but cant find it again
anyway this is the zx10 conversion
why the zx10 you may ask
1. the OEM shock is 340 mm from center eye to center eye and has a
stoke of 70 mm
the zx10 shock is 338 mm from center eye to center eye and has a stoke of 69 mm
the top and bottom bolt eyes are identical

on the yzf 750 the reservoir cant be turned towards the engine because the frame brace resricts the shock movement so it has to sit outward
on fzr's and thunderaces it might work better because the swingarm has no bracing



as you can see i will need to cut away a small part of the thin ally this will in no way afect the structural integrity of the swingarm as this thin sheet is decorative more than structural

i will run a rubber screen strip around the newly cut shape to make it look tidy

job done
a manky peice of 15 year old shite from parts unlimited on ebay for a yzf / fzr / ace will set you back 40 - 60 quid
this shock from a 2007 5k mile zx10 cost me 48 on ebay
and has fast and slow compression / rebound / preload adjusters
seems a good upgrade to me
once i get it out on the road i will post my base settings
it might be ok as standard because although it will be set up stiffer mainly because the shock had to deal with 180 bhp the lack of horsepower but extra weight might mean just minor tweaks to the setting

although after reading this post zx10 owners might wonder why
the price of a rear shock has doubled
