    Looking good, and I'm enjoying the build notes - elec-trickle problems, don't get me started ;-)

    Can I ask where you bought your fairings, etc, from, and what you think of them.

    And, why is the clutch fluid always discoloured after (or even before) the first ride ??

    Thanks, Gren

    The fairing looks to be too high, clip ons will probably foul on the fairing so check your lock.
    Don't use the the carbon air runners as a datum to the nose fairing, there is about a 15mm difference between road and race parts.
    Stuff I hope you already know and have seen, move the rectifier and mind the seat on the tank.
    Have fun.

    Hi Gren,

    The fairings were bought off ebay from Ricambi Weiss in Germany. They are very good quality and easy to work with, and very reasonably priced. Thanks.

    Nice racer project.. looks good !

    Curious if you have clearence between front tire and flat radiator during serious breaking ?
    (my 888 barn find had a flat radiator with tire rubbing, almost all the way through)
    Just a heads up before steam production makes you loose a golden trophy
