  6. It's still stirring your juices which is no bad thing. Enjoyed the read up, keep going sir
     
  7. I will, but it is all done on a very tight shoestring as I only work part time in the summer and winter is all holiday. Watching some 749r yokes out here in germany but the guy wants 500 for them so they can wait untill they drop considerably.

  9. Thanks mate.
     
  10. Right small update. Flogged my old Ohlins to a friend for more than I could get a replacement that would fit my conversion.

    Personally I do not think my riding warrants a TTX so bog stock 1098 Ohlins ordered from Italy. Arrived withing 3 days so final assembly could commence. Any modifing of the shock I can get my Ohlins mate to do if need be.
    Everything checked and torqued in place.
    So now running; 848 arm & hub, 999 rear caliper, 996 caliper hanger, 996 axle, 996 full floating rear disc, 996 sprocket carrier, 748r rear disc, 520 chain conversion, 1098 öhlins, modified suspension rocker, fabricated rocker adaptor, magnesium 5 spoke marchesini.

    Next thing to finish is the carbon undertray, so hopefully will get the cloth this weekend from a mate. Then stink the house out.
