I love the shape of the front of the frame in conjunction with the tank. Just perfect.

Love the bike...

Any reason you didn't lower the forks internally instead of pushing them through the clamps? Please tell me not laziness bc that thing is beautiful.

Hi yes there is a reason for pushing the forks through the clamps...

I wanted a bike that had a very good Chassis and handling - and the R6 fork has exactly this position on the original bike (the clip-ons were over the clamps original). I tought that lower the forks will have a bad effect on the handling!

Bye

It's already been said Peter, but your build is of factory standard. If Yamaha reproduced your bike, they would sell them by the bucket load. Congratulations from Titan Performance on a fabulous result.

Thanks for your comments...

if Yamaha had this as factory Standard (I only used titanium screws...) the had to sell such a bike for 25000 Dollars...  8)

Hi all...

as you all know a bike like mine is never ready... you find always parts to replace... So I did some things over the last months... The biggest Thing was to repair the forks... the are now 28mm shorter and is completely overhouled.

Will see tomorrow if the bike drives now how I expect...

Some pics from today...






... fork-details...





... some more Gimmicks on the clutch and the YPVS...





Bye

Peter

I'll deffinately be using this bike as a reference for my rz350 build. But will be a bit less opulent.   Lovely bike!
