If someone sells 'em I would advertise my dual 41FCRs and call Chris Kelly for a split singles kit!

Well. We are part-way through the process. Here's some progress shots:

Notice the plastic piece that normally sits above the regulator is now carbon fiber (and hidden amongst a tangle of wires currently)


Likewise, the bracket to mount the horn is made of carbon fiber and the bolt is black billet aluminum.


Work in progress battery box and coil/ignition mount:




Shown with back pieces that will "wedge" in the battery to prevent it from moving:

Nice work a m.

Looks great. Looking forward to seeing the finished job.

You've been busy lately that's for sure.

Waiting on Jet Hot to finish up the pipes (intake and exhaust headers) so it can all be reassembled. Have new intake manifold and exhaust manifold gaskets, crush washers for the balancing and vacuum screws, and titanium screws for those ports that get plugged, along with titanium lock nuts for the manifold studs - intake&exhaust.

Playing the waiting game does not rock. The weather is fantastic today, I want to ride. Or wrench. Something with the bike, sheesh. (So I went and made sure the tank and gauges were dust free)

Gday a m

How's it going with the FCR/pods install?

You up to jetting yet?

Interested to see what jetting you end up with.

I wish! I keep missing the FedEx delivery - two days in a row... he's got my various pipes coming back from Jet-Hot where they got ceramic coated. I showed up a half hour earlier today back home from the time of day he came the day before and missed him by - according to the slip on the door, less than 5 minutes.

Perhaps tomorrow!

made progress yesterday and today. some odds and ends to tidy up, but here's a progress picture - its alive:





I'll get some detailed shots of under the "hood" (ha!) soon - still need to solder two wires, and hook up a switch for the a/f ratio monitor. Not really a necessary bit, but it works well under my tail. sometimes you just gotta have a gizmo.  And I believe I'll be putting the belly pan back on, though its fun to see it all nekkid again.

to preempt koko64's next question: i have not yet messed around with jetting. One question though, do you all find it necessary to have the idle control turned "on" a bit for it to idle? Mine will die everytime if I back it all the way off. Wondering if that's correct or not. With it on, I can bring it to a nice ~1000 rpm idle or so, and it feels good. Wasn't sure if it should be able to do this without that turned a bit.

(in other news, I have acquired 851/888 corsa suspension rocker that is adjustable. gotta get some machining done for it to be ready to go... that's a project for another day though)

Bloody nice bike a m!

Lots'a nice bits on it.

Yeah, you definitely gotta adjust the idle knob to get it idling. Wound all the way out, it might not even lift the slide, so set it to your liking.

I like a fast idle to help warm up without a choke and because I don't have a slipper clutch. Once warm mine runs at 1300-1350, without being too clunky into first.

There's a knack to warm up Chris Kelly discusses in the FCR supplement. He's right on the button with it.

i was considering buying the one that's on ebay, but i can't make my mind up. if i bought the billet pivot i'd want the billet arch to go with it. and i can't find an arch to save my life.
