Engine – Completely stripped engine, new bearing throughout, high compression forged cnc wiseco pistons, new valves, guides and seats and Hydroblasted cases while apart. Gear drive cam from Joe Caruso installed. Machined up from billet some velocity stacks which have K&N filters attached. Exhaust pipes has been handmade by Noel at Pipework Techniques (who built the original Britten pipes). Machined up the exhaust flanges. Reflashed the ECU to suit the engine mods.
Suspension – Wilbers 631 fully adjustable shock fitted out back and Andreani adjustable fork inserts for the front.
Discacciati cnc radial masters, helmoto braided brake lines and Metalgear disc rotors at the front. Machined headlight, triple clamp nut, footrests and seat subframe. The subframe is 2 x 6mm sheet rails running from the frame to the back. The ducktail is actually 7 profiled 6mm sheets which look like a ducktail side on but are almost visually nonexistent from behind.
A handmade aluminium hugger has been fitted to the swingarm.
Electrics – Completely new wiring throughout, with an electronic control unit at the heart, stainless steel button switches and LED lighting all round by PBM (Purpose Built Moto). The seat is also PBM.
Overall the improvements can be measured with an additional 15% more hp delivered through a flatter torque curve beginning just off idle. The handling has been a vast improvement with the adjustable shocks and then theres been a weight loss of 22kg from the original bike.
Moreover, its an aural experience that big V-twins deliver and a great fun bike to ride.
