I knew some one else, if not many more, would want a speedo delete.

thanks for taking the time to research and develop a really cool part.

The bar is here 8)
Made speedo removal spacer so you can dump the drive mechanism if your using electronic speedo or it isn't a requirement where you live
It goes from this

to this

to this when it's shined up

and this is how it looks with CBR600 disc

The shiny one is a spare if anyone want's it cheap?

Ho Hum, tried making a mold today, first time I've used fiberglass for a few years
Total disaster :eek:
Forgot to take into account, Florida is REALLY warm, local news says temp is 83 degrees. (Last time I did glass it was 'winter', upper 50's)
anyway, catalyst should have given me 15 mins working time, nope, about 3 mins, maybe less
At least its going to be rock hard really quick ::)
I'll try less than minimum catalyst and hope it cures
back to the drawing board ;D

Also try to minimize your UV exposure, keep it out of direct sunlight until you are ready for it to cure.

Tried again today, it rained almost all day but I'm under cover so that wasn't a problem (strung up a blue tarp ;) )
Well, using less catalyst would probably work if it was as hot as yesterday, much cooler and high humidity. resin wasn't cured when I checked, about 7 hrs 'cure time'
Hopefully sun will be out tomorrow, I'll leave mold in the open to harden
Good job this is only practice run

OK, the weather cleared up, it got HOT.
Used about 1/3 of the recommended amount of catalyst and got much better results, reasonable working time so mat would 'wet out' properly.
I'm real busy fixing stuff up for wife next few days, she has some friends 'visiting' so cleaning is in order. ::)
I'm modifying steering stem for Neevo to fit GSX-R forks to his 350/400f so thought I may as well do the blue ones I've had licking around for a while (page 3~5?)
I'm going to fit them to the 'Brat-tracker' thing I'm building with the blue wheels
Buying some quite expensive dies, shortening stem and cutting new threads (my lathes are too small and don't do metric threads so I can't do things that way)
Here's a pic

Here's the latest little 'jem' I've come up with to make throttle plate adjustment easier, quicker and just generally 'better' ;)
Basically, curved the washers ('domed' really)
I've been making brass washers to fit under spoke nipples and wondered if it would be an improvement for the carb adjuster screw - it is 8)

Here's pic of where it fits, this one isn't assembled correctly, the washers go either side of the adjuster

yes, cause I remember that little thing sucks! I think even in Honda manual, its not real clear, it might show both washers on one side. cant be sure its been a while. But putting that together sucks. your new washer will be much friendlier.

Had to mke some throttle shaft end plugs, realised I haven't posted pics of them BEFORE fitting
I make them with a hollow inside so it won't rub on end of throttle shaft
made two so here's front and back in one pic


They fit 'hole at about 3 o'clock position

I think you just work on bikes as an excuse to machine stuff. ;D

These caps, do they stop vacuum leaks? What's the purpose of them?

They seal up the end of throttle shaft, prevent air, dirt and water getting in and causing problems.
Air leak is the biggest problem, can cause all sorts of intermittent running issues (problem doesn't happen all the time, sometimes bike runs good, sometimes runs crappy)

Decided to get my ass in gear and do rear wheel to match front.
While I was at it, weighed the rims.
All are 18", 36 hole
Stock 360 WM2 steel rim, 6.05lbs
Flanged alloy WM2 rim 3.78lbs
Flanged alloy WM3 rim, 3.88lbs
Moto-cross WM3 rim (no flanges)4.48lbs.
The blue MX rim is noticeably thicker material but I'm still surprised the same size flanged rim is over half pound lighter
Just weighed a genuine Boranni WM3 x 18 40 hole I'm going to fit to CB450 drum, 3.95lbs

And TZ250 rims made by DID are also lighter than other DID rims. 1.885Kg versus 2.150Kg for a 2.15x18 rim (both flangeless). I didn't weigh the TX750 alloy rim lying under the bench for comparisno. I'll do that when the heat drops.

Damn... I just went through all 60 pages of this build and I'm thoroughly jealous! I wish I had the skill, tools, knowledge and patience that you have!
