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
Love this picture

Got lots more parts on the way and look forward to getting it complete ASAP. I wanted this build to be tastefully done using the best quality components available.












Currently has the following parts fitted:
- Akrapovic full Evolution system, titanium headers & Y Pipe with carbon end caps
- OEM Yamaha rear seat cowl
- Belly pan off 50th Anniversary GP edition
- GYTR carbon fibre tank panels
- Evotech pillion footrest removal kit
- Evotech fender eliminator
- Rizoma Action indicators (rear)
- Rizoma Rev rearsets
- Rizoma Sportline grips
- Rizoma bar ends
- Rizoma pick up spools
- Rizoma engine protecters (left and right)
- Rizoma fuel cap
- Rizoma front and rear wheel sliders
- Rizoma oil cap


Parts which I've got but not fitted:
- GYTR frame sliders
- GYTR air filter
- Power Commander 5
- Rizoma front and rear reservoirs (changing when brake lines arrive)




Parts which have been ordered but haven't arrived:
- Clever Wolf carbon front fender
- Clever Wolf carbon rear hugger
- Clever Wolf carbon tank pad (these items have landed in Australia, just waiting to clear customs so should have them this week)
- ASV C5 shorty levers in black
- Spiegler brake lines in carbon/smoke colour front and rear
- Graves smog block off plates
- Galfer wave discs front & rear
- PVM forged alloy wheels 7Y spoke in gloss black (arriving late December / early January depending how PVM go)
- DID ERV3 520 chain & Renthal front sprocket (these will not go on until the new wheels arrive as I will do this in one hit)
- Dunlop Q2 tyres (these will go on with new wheels)
- GYTR carbon airbox cover (available mid January)
- Lightech chain adjusters in black (should be arriving this week)
- Watsen flush mount indicators (order placed but may take a little while as Roger needs to see a 2013 in person to get a perfect colour match)


I'm sure there are some other little bits and pieces I've missed out, can't wait to get all the parts on and start enjoying it. I'm sure once this is complete I will want to do even more further down the track!

I'll keep you updated with photos as some of the goodies arrive.


Matt
Great looking bike, you've done really well putting your ride together!

It's on the "to do" list for after Christmas, going to get a set of the Rizoma Tomok mirrors in black.

I got the PVM wheels fitted with the Galfer wave rotors front and rear along with the chain & sprockets. Also fitted the Dunlop SportSmart tyres at the same time to make things easier.

Put a Renthal 15 tooth on the front and a AFAM 44 tooth on the rear which is nearly the same colour as the bike, topped off with a DID ERV3 520 chain.




Will clean the bike up and take some proper photos over the weekend. Still a few little bits and pieces I am waiting on but nearly how I want it now!


Matt

Looking sexy! So what do you do for a living?

Isn't stock tooth count 17/47? You dropped 2 in the front and 3 in the rear? Let me know how it goes!

Need a flash tune! Let me know if you wanna use mine, for a small fee can flash your Ecu

The gearing change is fantastic, definately makes the bike more rideable and combined with the new wheels you can tell when you flick it from left to right.

Got the bike dyno tuned on Saturday, bike now feels much more crisp throughout the whole rev range.

Took a few photos today now that a few more parts are on the bike.

Just waiting on the Watsen flush mount indicators, Cox radiator guard & the GYTR carbon air box cover which should keep me happy for the time being.

I fear that will be one of those things that once I start I won't know where to draw the line and stop!

Any dyno charts?, I would be interested for a comparison to my similar setup but with a bazzaz unit made 168hp and 78ftlbs for what it's worth.

Why stop now, all those expensive parts need expensive (and very trick) and very light hardware to complete it. Stock hardware looks like rusty bolts in comparison to Ti. Bike looks awesome! Good job !

Fantastic job mate. definately one of favorite bikes in a while. Your color choices are perfect IMHO....very subtle...but jump out when you know what you're looking for. It reminds me a lot of my '09 before I destroyed my oem plastics at the track although I'm very happy with where mine's at now. I love the PVM's!! Great choice...very few have them so there's some exclusivity there. Besides...everyone has BST's now. Any plans for the calipers? That would be a perfect place to throw in a subtle dash of color.

You need to throw it up for BOTM soon.

Thanks for the kind words burn-z.

Your bike has definitely been one of the many that has given me ideas on things to do and made me go for the PVM 7Y's! Got a few more little bits and pieces to sort out but have a wish list of a few items (not sure if they will happen, but never say never). Ohlins front forks / rear shock & Brembo calipers front and rear (underslung).

This forum has been great for ideas and looking at builds like yours certainly makes things much easier.

Thanks Dai, the aim was to keep things looking classy without going over the top. Very happy with how it has turned out and can't wait to get the remaining few bits to have it finished... Well V1 anyway.
