Iíve been on here for a little while and though i should start a build thread.

My dadís building a streamliner so for shits and giggles we've decided to use his left over parts (and a fair few that werenít left over  evil) to build a bike to race for myself.

The highest part of the bike is the top triple clamp at just under 900mm (using standard vfr400 forks we had lying around, same DIA but around 125mm shorter) my whole body is pretty much level with the top triple clamp and my head is just high enough to see over it.

it doesnít run a radiator, under my seat is a coolant tank and its setup to only draw water as it needs it (i expect it to get reasonably hot under my arse shocked). we decided to get rid of the radiators because we want this engine to run as close to how it will be running in this bike as it will in the streamliner. The fuel tank is the small tank you see in front of the tank I will be sitting on. it hold enough fuel for us to do our run but will probably need to be refilled between runs. behind my arse you see all the electrical stuff, the battery is the one out of my road bike, thereís a data logger with a wide band o2 sensor to help us set the bike up, an Ignitech ignition with a custom ignition map in it, and a tip over sensor that cuts the fuel and spark if the bike leans over more than 45 degree's, thatís only on there to make sure that the vibrations of running on the salt doesnít Plymouth it off too much (more testing for the streamliner rolleyes) other than that itís a pretty stock standard 1987 cbr1000f, itís been a bit of a spur of the moment job we only decided about 4 weeks ago that we were going to run it, before that it was just a frame. we robbed the engine back out of the streamliner, assembled the bike and started cutting things off it.














































This is what we are testing all the bits and pieces for, once i get some more photo's of dads bike Iíll see if he will let me start a build thread.

Davie,
Thanks for the build thread. Good luck with the project. I ran a no-radiator coolant tank on my turbo Hayabusa for 2 seasons and it worked great. No overheating at all.
What venue are you going to run it at first?

Hi Don
Thanks for the info, Iíve been thinking about how warm Iím going to get but I think with some insulation and the seat myself and the coolant tank I should be ok, I shouldnít need any thermals under my leathers anyways  grin . I live in Australia so the bike will be run at Lake Gardner.

Oz, dads really happy with the carbís, im pretty sure he has them on another 1000f at the moment while he is making a base curve for the ignitech.

I have not made a lot of progress but I thought I would do an update.

After fiddling around with some spare parts I had left over from an old project, reading and re-reading the rules. I've changed the headstock angle 3 degree's and extended the swingarm 85mm to take me to 10mm under the 10% over stock wheelbase rule for my class.

I've moved the front wheel to make room for my turbo I hope to run soon, and moved the rear wheel back to help make the rear of the bike a streamline as I can.

Not a whole lot new to add.

The frame, swing arm, subframe, and tanks are all at the sandblasters at the moment so I have been doing little odd jobs until I get them back.

I have a few pics of the exhaust getting wire brushed, painted then wrapped, I will attach them tomorrow my phone is being a pain.


The bike will be running in a different class now after I found some Charlie Toy bodywork cheap and decided to set it up from the start with methanol.

I'll throw some photos on here tomorrow. grin

It helps to locate the pegs so you are not all scrunched up.  A fellow is not as flexible when wearing leathers.  Also, a guy gets older.  My bike is set up how I was comfortable eight years ago.  Its a bit of a tight fit now.

My pegs will be moving now to suit my new body work.

Just a thought.............about the wrapped pipes.........the wrap seems to make them look slow and will catch salt.

I was just wondering what the pipe wrapping does for you.

Thanks, Don

Wrapping keeps the heat in the pipe, prevents the pipe from disapating heat. The exhaust flows better with the pipe hot.
