Many thanx for the pix / measurements. One final - if I may be a PITA.  ::)

Here's the point I need the drive sprocket to rear sprocket alignment measurement from. IOW - I need to know how far out from the casing the sprocket c/l is. That's just so I can roughly position the rear wheel and sprocket to get spacers made. I'll allow for shimming for true alignment once the "real" engine is in the chassis. Your second pic down showing the drive sprocket from above is virtually it, but you can see on my dummy engine - I don't have that outer case where the drive sprocket is !

 I replied over in your thread as well.  I'll get you that next measurement this evening.

This is a pic of the measurement I PM'd you on a few minutes ago Beach.  I think it's what you need.   1.5 inches from the main engine case edge to the outboard side of the drive sprocket.

I got the 30 day thread reminder of shame again.  I got the rearset mounts cut and I'm just about ready to drill them out and fit them.  I think it's one of the biggest blockers on the build so far.  For now, this bike has been taking 4th or 5th place for the YZF750 maintenance/upgrades and stuff I have going on at my new shop in town. 

For folks still following the thread that don't already know, in December, two friends and I rented a 4000 sq/ft garage in Nob Hill, one of Albuquerque's more colorful districts.  I've been splitting my tools and time between my home shop and the new place in town.  Duplicating some stuff but getting some new tools in the process too.   I needed to get out of the house and a change of pace.   I live on the mountain in the trees only 20-ish minutes outside of downtown and I love it but to most of my friends in the city, they seem to think it's like another planet.   The new shop is in a great location and we have plenty of space to work in and hang out.  It's a creative space that even our wives like.  A few steps out of the shop and our favorite watering holes are right there.   We took a 1 year lease with options for much longer if we decide.  It's a great experiment at this point.  We are calling it The 505 Garage.   We are setting up an area up front for a hang out lounge.  I even made bumper stickers.. :)   

More on the 750 twin build soon.

Lol, thanks guys. I'll get some extras done soon.  I only had a few made of the first sticker run.  My first thought is that we put on them on our vehicles because parking down there is a pain and we only have two tenant spots and we have to wrestle for those on some days.  I'm working on a better design for more stickers.  I'm trying to work out tshirts too.

So, I finally solved the rearset mount plates.   Test fit is nice, I'll clean them up at some point.  The brake master actuation will be interesting.
