Pics of the bike look great!  How did that 17/34 gearing work out? Trying to figure out what gear to run on mine.

After mounting everything, I went with 17/36. There isn't quite enough clearance for the 34 in the rear. I already shaved the swingarm enclosed drive mount tabs and the front sprocket housing, and while the chain could fit, any deflection would put it into the case and the swingarm.

17/36 is actually just a hair taller than the factory ratio even with the 17" wheels.

I don't feel that it's spinning all that high at all - if I were commuting on it on the freeway for extended amounts of time, I'd go 18. I might try and see what the clearance is like for an 18/34 if I try and attempt anything like a multi state trip. That could make 75mph highways comfortable I think.

The bike looks sweet, the rims with the metallic edge really complete the package, hope it rides as good as it looks.

Thanks - it rides fantastic. Torquey, really tight feeling, and surprisingly flickable.

MMmmmmm......


Mork, where did you get the Upper Yoke?
I think I need that for my R6 2011 front end so I can get the nose of my TR1 up.

Itís from cognito moto. Wonderfully well machined piece. I went with their 1 1/8Ē bar clamps as well if you are looking for real bars and not clip ons.

Winter is coming tomorrow and I needed an excuse to keep a nice charge on the battery.

Also, anyone have any particular battery chargers/tenders they like specifically for li-ion?

Been a while since I allowed some interneting time. Iíve actually posted the bike on Craigslist, but I imagine it will take a while to find the right buyer (everyone seems to like black or red bikes around here) I just donít ride as much as I would like, and I really would enjoy putting some more effort into the BMW (which I canít sell)

nice job! love the colors Iincluding the contrast between the seat and tank. I just use a Genius charger cus I have a bunch of different bikes with batteries that need preserving.  I like the fact that I just clip it on the terminals and walk away!
