Bodywork is a future consideration.  Planning on running un-faired this year.

Hey Joe
  Which meetings will you be doing?
I have built a similar chassis for a Busa, less rake and is VERY stable.
I ran 205 at Gairdner this year and I recon the 1000 should be as fast and stable.

I would like to see it in the flesh.
I'll be at BMST and WoS

  cheers   Bones

Ran the bike in LTA July race. First pass went easy thru gears shut off before the mile and coasted thru at 140.  Handling excellent but rear brake was not very effective.  Reworked it some and made a second pass.  A little stronger thru the gears and shut off at the mile for a 160 pass.  Rear brake no better.  Decided to err on the side of caution and re-engineer the brakes before running again.  The seat was too far aft and I decided to move it forward 5".  New rear caliper, brake line and pads seems to have solved the problem.  I also changed the front master cylinder for a Brembo off an F1 Yamaha. It has a stronger return spring which gives it less drag rolling resistance.

Just to give everyone an update on this. Joe ran the bike last Sept to 187. However, the rigid design and 200+ hp was found to be unrideable. It kept unloading the rear tire.

A swing arm was added over the winter and I rode the bike at the Maine event last week. I took it very easy and ran a 145 first pass. A bit more throttle gave me a 181 on the second pass. The bike had much more in it and on the third pass  I encountered some motor issues and ended the event for this bike.
