Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Build of two cb500 race bikes/tracl day bikes. From the ground up

Post by l.t.racing on Thu 26 Jan 2017, 2:35 pm

Raced cb500 in 2008 with new era, think came 4th in championship missing a total of 9 racers were could get points. 

Sold that bike on, built another for the first round of ts championship. Won the extra race on satday, and 4th on tv day cutted lol.  Then that was it till about 2010. Built another but was not 100% done. Then built one for the 2013 season. Only did few track days on it then sold on. Then came few month ago watching last ts round and thought want a cb again. So brought one from down sout 480quid. Then brough a s modle for 250quid about 30miles away, once sold bits off that stood me at 120quid. Both running bikes and all there.

I dont do what most people do and buy the race stuff, slap it together and away i go. Bikes are fully stripped, powed coated, all bolts plated or chromed, all new bearings, seals, all new parts for calipers. New rads, forks rechromed. Bikes like brand new after.

This is for my dry bike but still have to have one fitted, was hard to find one in a shop, what would run of own battery and fit right. Tryed my stores in doncaster, but was in linconshire, waiting for the gf to finish work and found this so was a good day for me lol. Few holes below are to tirwrap the cdi to on inside

I see you are using Goldfren brake pads. How do you rate these in comparison to EBC that most on this forum favour ?

I have never used the gold fren yet. There are 3 types s33 gpr and gp5

I always ran the ebc pads when first started in 2008, gave off lot of brake dust. And really had to fit new set each round. The gold fren alot of people use them and front runners are running the gp5 so must be good.

2008 round cadwell was able to win my self doing 1.48 laps now they in to the 1.41 8 years late. So got to try what eva the front runners are. Pads wont make the mush but each bit helps. The 2nd fav pad people use is the dp pads.

I sell the s33 at 16quid or the more race ones for 20quid.

I'm using the S33 on my CB and also on my Tiger. I like them. Also they are a good deal cheaper than the equivalent EBC pads.
