Thanks all for your kind words ,most appreciated  grin

Im a happy chappy ,I have just secured my first sponser , Thunder composites racing, Glen the owner and member of the Australian hayabusa club ,kindly donated some fantastic decals for the budget busa build , the pics below dont do justice to the details of his work which is world class ,I sent him some designs and ideas of what I wanted and he matched it all up to the finished paint job (metalflake silver /candy apple red )

Hawkwind.
Seasons greetings,and a prosperous new year.
I have a little question. Do you need to get the mag wheels Tested before you race?
and what tyres are you running.

Sounds good, thanks for the update! You have a great project going on here.
I'll be watching for your updates. I sure hope your ECU gets there soon!

Hawkwind, has your budget project become like a wedding with the Justice of the Piece?
Inexpensive to get the marriage started but then the costs go up the same as everyone elses.
Then it rains on the lakebed.

just a small update , dyno tuned just before DLRA speed week , some major issues with the ECU ,it was not a happy chappy ,would only run up to 8K rpm then crap out ,these runs were only at the 12pound spring on the wastegate ,some progress has been made with the ECU and hopefully it will be ok for next March , budget and motec m800 do not compute so I will persist with the microtec .


cheers Gary

Jack , magnet was fine ,problem is with the ECU ,I have supplied the designer of the unit with firing events both crank trigger degrees and cam trigger degrees I used a degree wheel and timed events off # 4 pot ,they are different to what is programmed into the ECU ,as I write this the ecu is being reprogrammed and hopefully ,I can do some more dyno runs to see if the problem is corrected , I have installed an upgraded stator (greater output ) and modified rect/reg unit  as the OEM could not hack the amount of extra current devices I have installed and the front forks are being modified to my specs .I want to have this bike sorted before world of speed 08 planing on attending God willing ,oh and another suprise bike .
