  1. Purpose built moto in aus, they are suppppee nice 3mm thick ones and have doubling plates on the inside in mounting areas. Not easy to find non aliexpress guards
  2. decided i couldn't make the twin shotgun pipes work without alot of testing and i need the bike on the road sooner so i cut them up and bought more bends and a 2-1 proceeded to chop them up, chop the rhs header up and spent an evening getting the headers equal length, went through afew designs and tacking then deciding i didn't like how it looked ended up with this and bought a purpose built moto stainless muffler have them on all my bikes and cant recommend them enough. my welding has deff gotten less tidier now i don't tig day in day out now, still fine just not super pretty and
  3. got this thing all finished up, stickers put on to make it go faster. maybe made it go too fast? took it out on Saturday for a bit of a shakedown at manfeild and its knocking quite bad so i ripped the motor out on Saturday night in preparation for a new one and a new gearbox as the current one doesn't like going into gears and ill convert to hydraulic clutch while i'm at it too. will slap a quick coat of white paint in there too to get rid of the last yellow on the car
  4. Plan was to just drill a bunch of holes in some 31.8mm tube, then sleeve it with some 44.5mm tube and use fibreglass part to pack in between and hopefully that sucks up some noise, I have afew options on the go at the moment everything is pointing towards doing a 2-1
  5. forgot to update this, heaps has been done. Got some door cards cut out and chucked them in Interior all finished up made an exhaust, before. and its now on the car and done perfect 4age raspiness \ and thats about where i'm up to, car is getting stickers this week, i did some test laps of the street this weekend and it runs great everything works pretty well, i have my first race meeting in 2 weeks so hopefully it makes it through the day without breaking too much
  6. got these high pipes made up today, turned out super sweet looking, only downside is they are wayyy too loud so i'm going to have a go at making some baffles/mufflers. once i get them quiet enough that i'm happy with it ill make up some heatshields for them and a-couple of hangers too. (please ignore the terrible car in background its not mine)
  7. today i bought a build your own exhaust system kit i'm going to build a high pipe setup really wanting to run a twin pipe the whole way to the back but i am struggling to find nice mufflers that aren't huge and look like they are just straight bits of pipe like so. the other option is just to deal with it and get some good ear plugs. if worst comes to worst ill get another stainless muffler and go 2-1 and work from there. like so using a random china muffler i had laying around.
  8. forsure man! hopefully my bike doesn't fall to bits on the way down haha.
  9. i was struggling to figure out some electrical issues with this thing so send it to Kane at r twin works and he worked his magic and also balanced and tuned the carbs and made everything work as it should. went for my first proper ride and it bought up afew issues i need to fix. (i really need to take photos that aren't at my workshop soon) i had to add more brackets to my rear triangle anyway so am going to have to get that re powder coated but thats no biggie also i have to make a new mount for my numberplate bracket too. I mounted up the rear guard today which came u
  10. got my fortune auto coil overs welded them up and installed them along with my "big" brake kit. gave the diff a quick wire wheel and paint black before i slapped it back in. the underside of this car is so grimey/caked in dirt i need to get under it and water blast everything off. also got windows installed and a bunch of other small things done but im useless at documenting stuff. Rolled it outside and gave it a quick wash, the new height is nice and all the arms seem to be at an okay angle but hopefully it handles good because i don't want to raise it/
  11. been cranking out getting this painted the last month or so, my first time painting so didn't turn out great but its all white now. painted the body this weekend, never want to paint a rollcage again either, wasn't much fun couldn't contain my excitement so put it all together last night and cut the dashboard to fit Next on the list of things to do is install all the new suspension parts up front with new bushes and ball joints etc. whip the diff out and install the new raito hopefully and all new suspension parts back there too build a ro
  12. Been busy scraping all of the yellow off the car, whoever painted it last did a terrible job and the paint has been flaking off/coming off when you stick tape to it so thats been fun. also got paper back from MSNZ for my homologation, stripped all the sound deadening out of the inside and its all sanded ready for primer and top coat. also did the rear tubs, cut out as much as i could for future slam/travel.
  13. its an xr100r motor, seems to get along pretty well, max speed is about 110-115kph i think? such a good combo, the tune isn't perfect but hopefully can iron it out
  14. Small update, been tinkering away tidying up afew bits and pieces on this thing. new tank badges, peanut valve covers mounted the battery under the bike between the mufflers motogadget rear view mirror and afew other bits and pieces that i cant remember. its really starting to come together now few small bits of wiring to go and it will be ready to ride
  15. took this for its maiden voyage tonight, seems to run good and didn't fall to bits or blow up. Ran a little bit leaner than before from having the larger dia header pipe so smashed a bigger main jet in and it seems to be good! i skipped some stuff but i added a billet tail light, new headlight and front guard, gave the motor a quick birthday refresh and did a skid and all seems go for te urewera next weekend
