So, regarding the twin exhaust, you know what you have to do!

Do you run in a Supermono class canolman? Your RGV with Husa power? That would be cool!

The supermono class has just started again in the UK, hope to do some of the rounds. I've ridden in many classes, Open (thrashed), Mini twin (thrashed), Super twin (thrashed), etc 😊 I can also race Forgotten Era, pre '91 even though my motor is 2006 my chassis is Jap import 1988.
There's something special about being the only single on a grid of jap 4's ! Grunting off the line at half the revs of the rest of the grid!😁

Yes I agree, I've never had the thought of running a 19T front. But if you look at that pic and count the links, it seems it's about right.... It was over 700cc I believe but still....

There must've been a good reason though, it was a factory prepared bike. Maybe it was a 4 speed gearbox with special ratios or something?

Sounds great! It's the same reason why I like to compete on my Husa dinasour I'm not interested in new, I like quirky and unique.

Plus I'm not sure how well a 450 would carry my ever enlarging girth around a track at speed. Jokes.... Well, about the 450 that is. I like a beer or few afterwards....

Looking forward to seeing your bike built BLUDGE !

got it, now.

Hello All. Now I see what you are doing. Brace your frames all you want. Love Damo`s pic of the Berg ripping sideways! There isn`t really a part number for those Kawasaki axle nuts. Just bring the pivot rod to the Kawa shop, all cleaned up of course, and they will find you some. They gave me flange type nuts with a nice light gold anodized and polished finish! Can`t believe the quality they use for most items. Must be the cost-no-object superbike influence, plus a polished surface tries not to crack. The senior mechanic at our local Kawa shop has for years had a small collection of old Porsches, which he works on all the time. His know-how is very handy! One wonders how many Japanese parts wind up in his cars. Just to raise more eyebrows, while there grab a couple of gallons of full synthetic Kawa oil. It is really Motul, or used to be, with Kawasaki`s additive package to stop cam wear and eliminate clutch plate glazing. Engine wear just stops with this stuff. Usual change intervals please. Onwards always, L

The 1988 Rgv chassis I use has a plain rectangle swingarm, the later models had a very trick looking ''banana' arm which was heavier and flexed more!
That banana arm was purely a styling excercise then - mirroring the RGV500 Schwantz was tearing it up on! It worked on the 18 year old me - I thought they were the best looking (remotely affordable) bike going. If they weren't so tiny I would have had one for sure...got an FZR600 instead, still not sure how I survived....

Alas, will be selling it when it is. Circumstances have changed - going to be moving soon and need to downscale. Hence this, and my 02 550 have moved up the order of my list of projects!

Taffy - out of interest, has your frame got anything else that I missed?
