The c5 ignition for the Virago is driven off the cam, I wonder if the KZ could have the kit adapted.

Also there is a fair bit of discussion in using a VOES to control the timing maps with these. They are a nice bit of kit indeed
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

Never a problem BC, glad to have both threads moving. 


The YZF project is awaiting carb parts so I can try firing it up.  I decided to finish cutting on my KZ frame.

Next I need to finish cleaning up the swingarm and get a coat of paint on it.  I still need to properly mock up the rear wheel.  I"m considering a final third frame brace in the lower triangle.  It will be functional but it's mostly because I think it will look good too.

I took a que off of Beachcomber and sourced a set of empty cases at a heck of a deal shipped.  I also have a set of jugs and heads coming.  Having a mock up motor made a ton of sense to me.  I needed both of my full motors on the bench to finish mix/matching to get the one I'll run.  This way maybe getting the engine and chassis ready won't stop me from figuring out rear set linkage, exhaust, etc..

Ahh, a project may always be a project and you'll always have many. Luckily you have that gas ang go bike.

CC,

that's a hangover from my Drag Racing days with V8 s !!

Rather than throw away grenaded engines I kept them less innards for set ups and "whatifs".

I'm now going a stage further and obtained a non V5 [non - titled ] frame so I can try out / duplicate any set ups on the bench first without worrying about scratching paint / getting a hernia !!

I picked up a KZ1000 rolling chassis a bit ago and I'm using the forks and mag wheels from it.  Same diameter, I'm going to use the 750 trees and the 1000 forks are a bit of an upgrade, dual disc.  Other than that, my thoughts head towards a nice USD fork off something much newer.   What were you thinking BC?
