Hi!

The work on the trike is still going on. There are a lot of small things to do in the moment - but nothing that's worth to post some pictures of it. Here a bracket, there a bracket - most of you will know what I'm talking about. I'll let you know if somewhat happened that's a little bit more interesting. So long...

Best regards, Sebastian.

Hi!

Today I've made some pic's of the things that happened over the last weeks.

Image
I've removed the oilcooler, and have connected the both openings.

Image
This is the original -folding- footpeg...

Image
...and this are the new -not foldable- (left side).

Image
(right side)

Image
The brackets for the rear brake line...

Image
...and a detail of it.

Image
Image
Image
Then I had to fab a new bracket for the coils, because originally they were mounted outside of the mainframe behind the panel and I don't want to mount the panel again. I like it much better naked.

Image
This is the originally connection for the brake fluid container on the rear end.

Image
I had to fab a new one, because of the new rear frame there is not enough space to go out of the cylinder in the original sharp angle.

Image
This is the new home for the radiator filler pipe. The reason for this expenditure is the same as for the coils. If you know the FZR you know also, that there's not much space behind the mainframe for all stuff.

Image
The new cooling circuit shown from underneath. (left side)

Image
(right side)

Image
Because of the expected heat from the exhaust, I have cutted out a part of the water hose in this area and replaced it by a piece of aluminum tube.

Image
Because of the better arrangement of the connections I have installed a wattercooler of the FZ 750...

Image
...the only thing I had to change, was the lower brackets. They was too close together. Everything else fits perfect.

Image
This week the airshifter system was delivered.

Image
I've started to mount it and the first things I had to do was to fab a mounting point for the cylinder on the frame...

Image
...and build a new gear lever.

Image
And this is how it looks mounted.

Best regards, Sebastian.

Hi!

Yesterday I had finished the new fuel cell. The breather valve is still missing - I'm waiting for this since three weeks now.

Image

And this is how it looks mounted. As you can see, I have decided to use the originally rear frame because for the other one (shown a few posts earlier) would be a new panel necessary. In the meantime I had made some experiments with fiberblass and I recognized that this stuff is not made for me. Maybe later I give it a new try...

Image

Best regards, Sebastian.

Hi!

In the past few weeks I've fabricated a new fairing for the front:

Image
In the inside is still some work to do:
Image
Killswitch:
Image
In these two plastic boxes is the electrical system housed. The lower one is for the air shifter and the upper one for everything other. Everything is connected with plugs. In case of maintenance or repair it offers the possibility to remove all the wires very fast:
Image
The air shifter bottle has also find its place:

Best regards, Sebastian.

Hi!

Everytime I've looked at the "number-plate-solution" at the front end, I was not 100% satisfied. It was ok, but not that what I really wanted. So I've decided to fab a complete new fairing. Well, I think it was worth all the work. Now I'm satisfied:

Now I just have to find someone, who can built me that of Fiberglass.

Best regards, Sebastian.
