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

Yowsers Brodie.  I saw your post.  Heal up ok?


On another note, I got more neato bits for the YZF.  These are cnc'd crank covers for each side of the motor.  Added protection in the event of the big oops.   YEC used to make something like it for race teams.   These were made by http://www.b1racingproducts.com/   Nice guy, great service.

Healing up well so far, still a long road ahead.

Those crank covers look great. Good idea as well.

The crank covers will be a snug fit if I install them under the stock plastics.  They will wait for a bit before I decide which bike to put them on.

Meanwhile, new front and rear brake rotors are here.  These aren't exactly name brand but I'm willing to roll the dice for the price.

I did the same on the intereceptor. I couldn't justify $500 for a pair of nos or oem Honda discs, so I went with the Chinese ones. Worked like a dream. Who knows how long they will hold up, but for the money, couldn't beat them

Yep, under 200$ to my door for all 3 rotors.  Hard to justify not trying it. 

I got the front rotors done and prepped the R1 calipers with new pads and a good rinse last night.  I'll get the calipers and another flush done tonight.

So....wrong blue dot calipers after all.  My bad.  I'll sort that out later.  I rebuilt the stock calipers with fresh pads and slapped it all back together.  The new rotors work great.

Man, I really dig that bike. Sucks about the calipers but at least you have the originals.
