Sure is, some of the best CF I've seen!

Over the weekend managed to get the Spiegler brake lines fitted front and rear as well as the Rizoma fluid tanks. The fit and finish of the lines are top notch and the adjustable banjo bolt makes it easier to get them sitting exactly where you want. Bled the brakes using Motul RBF600.

Should have the Lightech chain adjusters early this week and the PVM wheels look set to be here before Christmas.




Also took a few photos of the whole bike

Looking sick! I got the same Spiegler lines, except I went clear with gold banjos and black bolts. Looking good

Thanks all!

Lightech chain adjusters have arrived which now tidies everthing up with the rear end.

PVM wheels should be here next week and the Watsen flush mounts don't look like they will be ready until early next year.

Thanks Knackers,

Just waiting on the top air box cover to arrive which should be some time in January (on back order). It's GYTR which is the same as the side panels so wanted to wait so the match was spot on.

Thanks for the comments!

Well the wheels have arrived (PVM 7Y forged alloy in gloss black) which should be the biggest change visually to the bike.

Got a set of Dunlop SportSmart tyres and a DID ERV3 520 chain to put on. Getting the tyres mounted tomorrow and need to go grab a new rear sprocket so if all goes to plan will be able to put the new wheels with Galfer discs on the bike tomorrow night.

Booked in for a dyno tune on Saturday morning as well.

Not much to do now...







Matt
