That's a bit more my speed. I was also thinking that the over/under combo seems to be in fashion. If I can still get a single round headlight in there, I'm also considering that option.

Let's change this from Race Rep to Race Prep. Get this thing sorted and safety wired and come play. AHRMA and WERA have classes this will fit into nicely and they are competitive bikes with the right rider.

Thoughts on aluminum rims for this build?

H section shouldered rims of course!  I've bought them pretty cheap from Mike's XS, but on occasion had to re-angle the spoke holes and massage the bead seat where the ends of the extrusion are welded together - not a big deal.  I've used their stainless spokes as well - very nice, and also very well priced.

Brad collects high shoulder rims, so you could reach out to him as well.

I got her home from my friend's place. Looks like I have some work to do.

Also, anyone make their own top triple before and care to do it again? ;D

Yeah, I'm hoping it will sand/buff out.

DO you know for sure that the GSXR triple won't work?
