Tom,Larry, I had a measure up of the wheelbase today. Stock wheebase on a 1980 Suzuki GS1100ET is 61" therefore +10% = 66.1"
With the wheel fully forward in the arm its 65.1/2" at its shortest & 70.1/2" at its longest.

Hmm.. decisions decisions, I will check out the final wheelbase when I finish the engine build, then I can put all the combinations of sprockets on as I need to sort out the chain length as well.
Dr.G,n  I can see your point, but we will run that ugly old tank:-) or maybe the one with the modified back.

According to my math (the old math), 61" plus 10% = 67.1", if it will help.

Hey Buzz,
                 Bike looks great. AND I love the fact you want to look somewhat factory. I myself am building an aircooled GSXR for A-AF class for 2012. based on 89-92 GSXR. I have been modifying my tank so as to get down lower. so far so good. By the looks of yours, I am assuming you are running 1350cc class?
Are you running gas class or fuel? If gas class make your fuel cell to hold 7qts or more,because you will have to go back and forth to fuel station just to run it. real pain in the butt, thats the rules. I decided to run fuel class just so I can bring my on flavor Q16 VP is my choice,also figure corrected elevations 7700 ft or more if hot.

Here is the card template of the airbox which is 4 piece, so it can be taken apart to get to the Lectrons. There will be a 90mm diameter inlet tube on each end of the airbox.

This is the sprocket carrier which has had 8mm machined of the face to bring the sprockets into alignment

Here is the front fender with a mocked up extension to stop salt spray covering the motor, it will have a lower brace to stop it flapping around

The modified tank got delivered & it is fuglier than the original tank:-D so the fugly tank stays.
It will sit in the original place rather than jacked up as it was in the earlier pics.
This is because to run in fuel class we need to shut the fuel tap off from the handlebars, so we will use an electric fuel pump. By using a pump we don't need the Pingel fuel tap fitted to the tank, so this allows it sit in the correct place rather than jacked up to clear the airbox.

I reckon the airbox should detract attention away from the tank a bit did you get the idea from volvo!
