The "A" bike is almost complete. Waiting on slicks for the carbon Dymag wheels, adjustable shock linkage and an Ohlins steering damper. Engine is stock except for the Ti Akro system. 1299 tank and subframe and woodcraft rear sets

I blew the engine in the B bike...It has the GP10 scheme.

Very nice!! A and B bike. How many race miles on B? what's your opinion about it?
The B bike engine had about 1000 miles total. I but about 200 of those on it before it broke. It was tuned with MR12. There was so much soot built up I've been told that caused the piston to hit the valve or the crank bearing failed. I haven't had the motor apart yet. It screamed though and the 959 is a great track bike.
