That extra pound is unfortunate but negligible for most mortal men.

This or OZ's painted in white is my desire.

So, here's where I'm at at the end of Saturday. What all I've done since the last update:

Finally settled the rear tank mount. Earlier in this thread I talked about how the 1199 and 899 rear subframes are just a bit different and so are the tanks in the way they mount to the subframe. So, it took some engineering but I was able to design a bracket, and 3D print it from some of the "strong" filament. I had to cut away some aluminum from the subframe to keep the OEM bracket from hitting it. Take a look: The first pic is the bracket being fitted, and you can see I've marked out where I need to remove material. The second pic it is all finished.







I've also managed to replace the spark plugs. Glad I did as these were certainly the original plugs. Has anyone seen a green electrode before? I grew up building and running Top Alcohol Dragsters and learned how to "read" plugs from the best,... but this one is new.



I am pretty sure its oxidation of the alloy as a result of high temps. Just wandering if any of you have seen the same thing.

Oh, and what a bitch it was trying to get the "thin-wall" 14mm socket to go into the head cover. I purchased a new socket thinking it would be more of a thin-wall than my old one.... I was wrong.

So, I took the brand new socket to my lathe, took .040" off and now it works perfect!! Doesn't look pretty, but it works! lol







Also as you can see, I've mounted the radiators and started on the exhaust. Headers and "Y" pipe are on. Removed the DB killers from the cans and am waiting for my belly pan and fairings to get here before mounting them up.



Thanks from Twistedracer

So, I do have to ask any of you who have woodcraft clipons and are using the woodcraft steering damper bracket if you would mind posting pics so I can see how yours are configured. For some reason the way mine is configured its all out of whack. The damper is crooked as hell, and I cant turn the bars fully to the left before the damper hits the woodcraft bracket.

Any help or images of how yours are set up would be greatly appreciated. Here's a few images of mine how it is currently so you can see what I'm dealing with.

It's hard to believe this whole thing started from a used 1199S engine in an old wooden crate......

Anytime buddy. I certainly wouldn’t say talented though. Lol. My fiancé would probably prefer “not talented with money”. Haha.

But seriously, I just love tinkering, and fortunately I grew up building race cars and street rods. This is the first motorcycle I’ve built from scratch, but seems pretty cut and dry.
Thanks from youngR and oracle462
