October 2013 update

Hello,

an update on Progress

Sorted out the Chain Tensioner thing, bought one from Monstercraft and here it is being fitted by Rob:

Had to ease the metal away a bit on the clamps to get a good fit around the welds and to miss the chain. The sprocket needs spacing out 6mm but that'll be it as a done deal -- £125 & £22 import duty !!

I was up at the workshop today checking on progress and took loads of pictures and here is the first batch to answer this request.

Please note though that this is just a "fitting up" and tack welded there will be adjustments after the discussions today to make it fit cleaner & tighter.

Looking good lad :twisted:

The "Monster" Tensioner is good - but mine does make a "whirring" noise, probably due to it not being 100% square/inline :?:

Also, put some vents in the electic tray to get some good air-flow :wink:

That's it for electrics under the tank ! its all digital and tiny signal wires - Motogadet stuff from Germany and all lives under the seat, or rather it will do once the plates are made up.

Only thing I have to think about Placing is the Regulator/Rectifier - I was thinking of here, like on this Phase One bike.:
