There is a yzf750 for sale not too far from. It's soooo tempting.....

Is there any magic to be had in swapping the head from say a FZR1000 while maintaing the yzf750 6spd gearbox? And what does the displacement come out to?

Na, he didn't buy mine. But there will be a few pics of them together. From 20ft, his will look a lot better than mine because of my miss matched fairings. But I have an OHLINS.

I'm not planning on doing anything with mine for a while. I'm starting to think about fairings and where to get them from. Place in the UK is the only one left that makes road version of the stock body work anymore. I can get the front, sides, and belly pan for about $400-500 shipped. I've heard that they are a little slow, but very good quality and fitment. Although I may decide to go after a new front end first. I have to see how the summer work schedule goes. I'd love to get an Ohlins front end for it.

I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel....Then I realize that it is the train coming to run my ass over....

OK, I've been wanting to do one particular thing since I got this bike, So I got a package in the mail today that I've been waiting on for a while now. Here are the pics.

Now I have a full Ohlins set up for the bike. I was going to just do the drop in cartridge, but the shop wasn't too thrilled with the condition of my original forks. So I decided to go all the way instead. This set up is for an 07/08 R1. I had them do the "race" prep on it to lengthen the forks 10mm so they are only 25mm (1 inch) shorter than the stock ones. Which when I set them level with the triple, I will only be about 1/2" shorter than the setting I was originally running. My original forks are fine, and the shop is a little anal about suspension. But I don't mind one bit. I love these things. Got a major chubby as soon as I opened the box.

I've already got the front fender, axle, and calipers. I'm intent on using my R6 front wheel because it uses 310mm rotors just like the new R1 does. And it will fit into the stock triples. I only have to get a 1mm thick bushing made to take up the difference in overall diameters. The YZF750 uses a 56mm dia fork bottom while the R1 uses a 54mm. Once I get that sorted out, I'll be on the road with full Ohlins suspension.

I'm going to put my original forks back onto the bike until I get it ready to go. 4 weeks without riding is killing me right now.

So now I needed to take everything else apart to work on the front end.

Image

Image

I originally wanted to have some 1mm thick bushings made to take up the difference between the 54mm forks and the 56mm triple. But I was having a hard time with this in my head. After talking to a few people about the item, I started re-thinking how it should be done. Then I finally realized what size the material really is. Billy had tried to explain it to me before I started down the road of machine work for the bushings and I decided to give it a try. So I found some .04" aluminum sheet from a local place for $2.65 and a $0.43 PVC pipe fitting to give me some basic shape. Cut out a section and bent it around the pipe. Trim to fit and bend it over to create a lip. All done. I still might try the machine route, but I need to rethink the size of the material given the pain in the ass it was to get the fork tubes in there. Going below 1mm wall thickness on something 56mm DIA may not work.

Tubes are in.

Image

R6 rim from my 600 build works as it uses 310mm rotors just like the R1 does.

Image

6 Pot Radial mount calipers. Only bad part about them is the cost of replacing the pads. Going to be over $100 for new brake pads.

Image

Love the look of the caps.
