shuish... Nice Ride Man.... Thats it, ave saw enough, ave been contemplating changing my stock dommie now fur 4 months... yes I do like yours... watch this space........:thumbright: what spacers if any did ye need when fitting the wheels... ??? and did ye have to alter much to get the wheels to fit?? does the drive chain line up ok wi the sprocket on the cbr600 wheel ? mabozzar.
Getting wheels to line up was worst job,had to make spacers and mill down front caliper mountings on fork leg to move wheel across enough and had to make a bracket to mount front caliper as disc is much bigger than stock one.
Rear was easier and got chain to line up ok but as cbr sprocket is wider i had to fit a wider front sprocket and a 530 chain from a Gixer 1000.
Weird problem here in Spain is that original spec tyre sizes and axle to axle length are on registration doc. If you have non-stock sizes, then your bike ain't legal, will fail its ITV (MOT) and insurance is invalid.... unless you pay for a full engineer's inspection and Single Vehicle Approval at a specialist test centre, with a new reg doc....
That's why 70% of bikes up here in the sierras have no ITV or insurance....... anarchists
As for back sprockets, I've used "Supersprox" before, they'll make any centre section in alloy with your choice of steel teeth, mine was for CBR600 centre with a 520 chainring. Not expensive.
Moto looks great, I am building one at the moment which is very similar. I would be interested to see the bracket you have used for the front caliper and larger disc. I have fitted some 17 inch wheels from an FMX650 and need to make a bracket to accomodate the larger disc. Could you post a pic showing the bracket to give me some idea of what I need to make.
I will try to post some pics of mine tonight (it's not yet finished but nearly there)
