As if my post-count and log-in time isn't enough of a give-a-way that I'm a salt-newb, read on as I'm sure there will be several comments and questions which will cement that fact.  grin



Here's the skinny thus-far:

2003 999s frame
2004 749R motor
2005 999s air-box, injectors & throttle bodies
2002 GSXR600 front-end
2006 CBR125 front wheel (Canada/Euro bike with a 17"x1.85" front wheel)
Ducati Multistrada 620 swingarm w/4.5" wheel

Parts not shown in my mock-up photo:
Termignoni full system exhaust pipes
Radiator
Suzuki front-fender
Vortex clip-ons
Ducati 749/999 race fairings for modification

Planning on running a Good-Year 22x2.5x17 top fuel dragster front-runner
Nitrous Oxide injection eventually (likely 50hp)

I'm leaning towards a 150/70ZR17 rear tire as that'll be good (according to the rule-book) to 200mph. What do I do for a rear tire after I surpass that speed?  (Unlikely this year, but hey...  it's a concern.)

Wheelbase will be increased, likely through raking the steering angle some and lengthening the swingarm the remainder.

Fuel tank will reside under my butt, and although the photo shows an partially disconnected sub-frame, it was laid down to show more where it will finally reside.  (Haven't cut & welded the lower mounting points yet)

Good start.  I want your front wheel, way too small for you.  I've been looking for front and rear CBR125 wheels for my project, but there don't seem to be any parts on the market, probably because so many are still being raced up here.  Hard to find narrow cast 17" wheels.

One problem I see with the Ducati is the difficulty in getting a low profile.  But check out Jason Omar's Team Sodium Distortion's Buell for a real "out of the box" solution.

Tom, I checked out the Sodium Distortion Buell project.  Cool build, but that engine and rider configuration won't work in a Modified chassis class. 

As far as bike overall height goes, I'm not done lowering this thing.

Got some clothes on my high-speed gal this weekend...  So far, the height needs to come up ~ 3/8 - 1/2" and the wheelbase needs to go longer by 3".  The clip-ons in the 1st pic are just attached to the fork.  2nd pic shows a 3 1/2" (yet to be built) extension to the front which will help keep my hands within the width of the fairing as well as provide a more comfortable position.

Thanks Pete.  I spent a *LOT* of time on this forum searching through pictures as well as other 'net research before pulling the trigger on this project.

I've also got a good friend who has ran 200+ on an APS bike as a resource.  He's invaluable!

A question and a suggestion or two. Why do you want to want to extend the wheelbase? Are you going to put some ballast on the back? You could improve the aero on the back a lot and stay within the mps rules.

I have some components to place below the seat and I'll be running ballast also.  Plus, if I want to go back to this wheelbase, the swingarm is cheap $.

Aero improvements on the back are coming, and I'm not done with the aero yet, just wanted to get some progress pics up from this weekend.

Cool build  cheers

I found that sitting on the Bike in the Tuck position without all of your Protective Gear on can give you a false impression.

Put all your Gear on and then Tuck down and take the picture, this will give you a better idea about your relationship between you, the fuel tank and the Fairing/Seat combo.

I was surprised by the difference.

Thanks Pete.  I hadn't considered that.  I do have a photo w/my helmet on, but I couldn't get my head very low b/c of a frame bracket that's yet to be cut out of the way.

I think I'll have time this weekend to get out there in my helmet & suit.
