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

Street fighter notes

Post by Jameshambleton on Wed 12 Apr 2017, 10:05 pm

Dumping my notes here as I can't think of anywhere to save them. Any suggestions will be welcomed though. 

Upside down front end
stem length to lower bearing shield 245mm

CBR600RR 2007 - 2012 yokes (top bored to 50mm) 
Triumph Speed Triple Front wheel  pirat
GSXR k4/5 forks
CBR1000RR 2009- 2016 calipers = CBR600RR 2009-2017
VFR750 RC24 standard steering stem 

1994 gsxr 1100

Rear end 
vfr800 gen 5 swingarm, hub, wheel, disc 1998-2001 
955i rear axle
Triumph Speed Triple rear wheel  pirat
order bearings to fit the swingarm to the 86 frame bolts
The OE 01 bearing needs to cut down in length to 45mm and the ID was cut to match the OD of the 86 left pin

Yamaha V Star 650 rear shock with custom dogs 

The sprocket (front) needs to have a 5/8" / 15.875mm offset - may have clutch slave clearance issue 

The wheel is off to the right 1.5-2.0 mm so the wheel or possibly the hub will have to be milled to correct
17 or 17.5mm wheel offset is needed - if wheel is not milled can the hub be milled?
Honda civic has the same lug pattern/offset 

Other wheel sizes 
3rd gen wheel 5.5
4th gen wheel 5.0
5th gen wheel 5.5
6th gen wheel 5.5

Modification ideas 
Relocate ignition switch 
7" naked headlight - cb1300 
relocate the oil cooler behind the exhaust headers and cover with a custom grill to prevent stone damage 
twin under-seat exhaust (may stick with single) - possible cbr600rr5 
rear sets 
bar end mirrors 
custom seat cover 
single sided paddock stand. 
spare set of clocks for loom, custom dash and fusebox relocation 
Spare subframe for making brackets for the underseat exhaust fitting and rear mudguard 

Parts bought 

BikeYearPart name 
Triumph Tiger 10502008 Nissin Brake Calipers and master cylinder 108mm between mounting bolts 
Triumph Speed triple SE 10502010Front (with discs) and rear wheels
Triumph Street triple 675R2009Bottom yoke
Knights notes 
Measure your headstock and then find out the measurement for the bike you want to donate from. 
If they are the same (obviously as well as bearings) then that part would be a straight swap.
