Rides fantastic, well untill lately, its started to vibrate pretty bad so Im re doing the rear mount!
Suspension is no where near upto the job, with the extra weight the front end goes very soggy and soft and the rear becomes too hard, so because of this it runs wide in every corner, its took 2 weeks of suspension setting up to get it right, Ive got a fully adjustable rear shock on now and fook knows what weight oil on the front end!
Dunnmo about brakes as I never tried the std ones, but to give you an idea Ive got a 6 pot pretech caliper, ebc prolite disc and a brembo radial master cylinder and after a few hours riding hard up the lakes I boiled the fluid to the point where there was feck all braking! lol
Radiator turned out to be a nightmare, had to flip it around which leaves me with f*ck all clearence between the wheel under full load and the rad, infact I could of swore its hit it at least once! Cooling became a major issue, Ive ended up fitting a fan to try and keep it down, removed the thrmostat aswell, seems to be ok now but took 3 weeks to sort it!
Yep spacers have to be made for the all the mounts and swingarm, depends if your going to use the swingarm pivot as a mount as to whether how much detail you have to go in, I didnt so I can just use a plaiun spacer!
Its a cracking bike to ride and I love it but it can be an arse, p**s easy to get the engine in and running buy very hard to get the bike in a state where you can use it everyday and not have to worry, like I said Im not happy with my rear mounts so its getting redone this week!
Oh yeah modifying the plastics is a nightmare! lol
