Been slowly gathering bits over the last year to install on my VTR1000SP2,and since getting the radiator unit can start to install on the bike.
looking for some wheels(probably Galespeeds) and maybe some ohlins forks,but might just stick with the OEM ones
and maybe a Coerce fenderless and some painting with the tail unit,and should be done!

Simon btw the Brembo folding levers are compatible with the Brembo RCS levers (the replaceable end).
In case you didn't know...

What's steering damper is that?
That is a HYPERPRO I believe.

Great collection you've got there Simon.

Can't wait to see them installed.

The rear brake rotor is a full floater from what I can see but why it has 6 mounting holes?

What wheels are you installing on the beast?

Simon, if you have the original tank and want to sell it after fitting that lucious aluminium one, I may have someone who wants it... The buddy whose project bike I bought last night! Let me know if it's available. Thanks.

no problem!I think I will just keep the bike tricked out for ever,so if he pays the shipping he can have it
but I will be using the pump though,so have a look out for one of those and a new gasket
and congrats on him getting that bike
looks to be in good condition

Hi Simon,
That's very cool of you. :) Shipping would be to Chiba, so could be sent Chaku Barai.
He'll be wanting other parts, maybe PM me your e-mail address & contact info, as I'm sure we'll be needing your help along the way too.

no problem
Im a little slack these days though,so might be a week or so before I can get around to getting the tank off(also need to order a new gasket and little bits-but can do that tomorrow with ladybird
at least the weather here is finally getting a warm enough to start working on bikes etc

Simon - I don't think we're in any rush... This SP2 probably won't be on the road before the end of this year, with all the work we want to do (right) on it. Other things like our families, etc. will take priority.

He can use my VFR750 for rides so no rush - but says he's looking forward to going to Motegi Moto GP on 2 SP2's. Are you going this year? If so, perhaps we could meet there. We'll be camping out this year.

Was a lovely day today here in Chiba. Took the SP2 out to show someone who came by, but only took the TDR250 for a ride. SP2 needs better roads to enjoy, but the spring weather's nearly her at last! :)
