It sure is going to be a fun little bike to scoot around on. The FZR you saw is actually an original first gen Honda CBR900 Fireblade. A huge lot of fun that one is!

Ah, the quick glance had me fooled.  Great CBR too.   Your work has me wanting the benchtop style machining setup.  Great work on the little cafe!

My little racer has for the most part gone as far as I can go. All that is left is to make the seat pan and have it upholstered. I will make the pan tomorrow then off to the motor trimmers as it is the only thing I cannot do.


With luck it will be finished this week then off for a full check and if all goes well registration.


Out of all the aluminium work that I did the hardest part was the front guard. The tank has some ripples in it which are noticeable now as I decided to polish not paint. Still I am pleased considering this is the only fuel tank I have ever made.


Now just can't wait for rego so I can ride her.


Oh her name is Pirate Kitty!

That intake turned out really well, it looks like it should have enough length to avoid any major tuning issues
Half the fun's in the get there...

Its actually a pain to tune. I have been mucking around with it all day have found it easier tune with the foam uni filter pod straight on the back of the carb. I am going to order a couple of needles and selection of main jets and keep persisting.

Well I have 250km's clocked up on Pirate Kitty and she is a treat. Such a nimble little girl on the bends and as light as a feather. The Mikuni VM28 tuning is close now, still a little rich on the top end of the mid range. Revs out and can reach 80 kph (50mph) in second gear. Little sluggish at low revs but I can live with that.

I guess I assumed you were running the stock carb, you should be ok with just a filter directly on that VM.  Sounds like you've got it pretty close as-is though

Thanks and yes, did everything except the seat upholstery. I chose to make a lot of parts instead of purchasing so that way they would fit perfectly and suit the idea of what I wanted.
