My build project
Ok...I initially began to have an engine built for my 2004 repsol replica RC but before that project really began, I found what I thought to be a better base starting platform=SCOTT's bike. many of you knew this bike from photos on the web....Yean, I agreed-it looked good in the photos that were 5-6 yrs old; however, after purchasing and riding the bike a few times, I realized that I needed to combine the parts from both my repsol replica and Scott's bike.
Scott's bike had a modded electrical setup, chopped subframe, trick Japanese switches, sato rearsets, sato hangers and a few goodies I wanted to keep.
Scott's bike was setup waaaayy too soft for me, had older ohlins forks, a worn out engine that would sputter and cut out on me on the way too work, brakes were average on the street and I hated the shape of the brembo levers.
My repsol replica had AK gas forks, and ohlins shock setup for my weight, moriwaki Ti rainbow exhaust that I had just purchased, a DH air box and snorkel that was better thatn the turn 1 unit on Scott's. I also had newer BST wheels with a warranty and serial numbers, Ti bits, CF pieces, tyga triple, 18a vs 14a shorai battery, extended AL kickstand nicer seat yada yada.
Soooooo....For those that were bitching, whining, complaining, cussing that I AM PARTING OUT SCOTT'S BIKE, it isn't so...see, I'm left with his bike and tittle so, in my opinion, its isn't PARTED OUT, I am merely swapping parts that I prefer for myself. My repsol replica will be sold close to stock when I am don so, which frame/ title did I keep? Scott's!
So, enough of the whining that I PARTED OUT poor Scotty's bike, like f#$king his ex wife or something..he didn't want it-he got rid of it. case closed.
I have a few picvs of the weekends activities with JONDOG, CHYLWILL, and RCDEVIL swapping out parts and a few pics of the shops work on the engine so far.
