The headlight/revcounter bracket, this will also have the coils mounted on it as well. The reasoning for this is that they will be away from any electronics so rfi won't cause any problems.

Struts look much more substantial now. 

If you don't mind me rambling a bit, I'll tell you what I don't like.  I look at that humongous gas tank and think, "That thing's in the way - - can't get my upper body and head down very low."  Then I look at your nice instrument mount/ "headlight" and think "that things in my sight plane, especially if I make a special flat gas tank."

Just thinking out loud.  A lot easier to make changes now than later.

I know what you're saying Tom, but we want it to look like a stockish looking 1980's Suzuki GS1100.
If we was building an all out saltbike it would be a lot different, but we like 1980's aircooleds both GS's & Z1's. Now if I take off these rose tinted glasses  grin

Buzz,
Are you running "M" class or "A" class?  Length of swingarm may make the difference (more than 10% increase in wheelbase will bump you into "A" at SCTA; not sure about BUB/AMA).

I don't blame you for wanting the traditional look cheers

When all else fails, gas it!

Re swingarm, as Tom said 10% for SCTA and with BUB, if you build it from the stock swingarm it's ok. If you build it from scratch it makes you A. That's what I was told when I asked. Also, if you run A in SCTA, forget about the headlight, cuz you can't run one. I'll second the vote to change the gas tank as well. Good luck.  cheers

Tom, Larry, the arm is a standard Suzuki arm with extensions so I will have to have a measure up, is that +10% of the original wheelbase?
Granted the fuel tank ain't pretty, PJ has another one with the back cut off to follow the frame tube so will pick that up at our meeting on the 28th of this month & see what that looks like, thanks for your help & interest.

SCTA 2012 rule changes are listed on the "news" section of the landracing.com home page.  Scroll down to new rules, then click on "more".  New frame rule reads as follows: "A maximum wheelbase not to exceed the original OEM specification plus 10%. Entrants shall provide acceptable documentation for record certification."

Hey Lightbeer,make a tube tank with just enough room for a runs worth and then make a mock tank out of rubber foam exactly the same dimensions as the stock tank....that way it looks original AND you've got something comfortable to rest on while in the racing crouch.....

That's OK, thanks  wink
