Just a few updates:

Fitted my pod filters (and I'm happy with the clearance for the new tank):




Since the front coil was attached to the air box I had to make a new bracket for that, I also wanted to relocate the ECU to in front of the battery rather than beside it and same with the relays. The ambient air pressure sensor was also tucked in behind the headlight so I shifted that onto the new bracket too:






I made another bracket at the back for the rear coil and reg/rec and got rid of the oil breather catch-can:






Been a lot of loom rerouting to achieve all of this and I've tried to hide the loom as much as possible. There's still a lot more rerouting required but will get to that eventually..


Got some new front indicators and wired them up. Still got to tweak this wiring a bit because it's a bit weak for my liking at the moment.






I have been planning how to make the mould for the belly pan next and thinking about the approach I will use for the seat and tank too. I had the belly pan tool planned and ready to build before I realised I wanted to add a roll-over on the top edge to try and make it look a bit nicer. Adding the roll-over means I can't just cut the edge of the part until it fits (which was my initial plan), I have to actually design it to fit perfectly before I mould it. To do this I needed a better 3d scan of that part of the bike. And while I had my scanner out I took the opportunity to get a better scan of the top of the bike with the tank off and with the new pods. This is the new scan with the roll-over edge on the belly pan (the seat and tank still need some work):



This was the initial plan for the belly pan mould. 16 layers of 9mm MDF (per side), covered in a layer of polyester bog and CNC machined back to a smooth A-surface. This needs to be redesigned now for the roll-over but once it is done I will use this as a test/experiment for making the seat and tank moulds using the same process

Haha agreed! It'd probably take me a year to figure out how to make a CNC cut a triangle.

Making some awesome stuff here man. I havent had access to a CNC or laser rig in a few years now, its killing me  ;D. Just a waterjet but pretty limited to what you can do on that.

Not that I don't love making things the old fashioned way, but when I work most of the day in CAD/3D its nice to just be able to hit send and have a perfect part at the end of the day.

Will definitely be checking in on this. Keep it up mate.
