Suspension is back and looking unreal, No its not Kashima but the hard anodising is very close, side by side its very hard to tell the difference unless you see them every day. lowers are new factory KYB DLC tubes, the rest of it uses aluminium spring

Things are progressing along ok, despite my best efforts. I realised last friday that I had Cerakoted and laced the wrong front hub... The 2014 front end has a larger axle and in turn the Bearing OD is larger also. I must have mixed up the hubs at some

So when I ordered all my OEM Yamaha bits I saw that an 02 crank was no longer available, so I got an 04 instead thinking they would be the same. Well as you would expect, different part number means different part. Yamaha went to a larger Non Drive End

Slosh 112

yeah I kind of noticed that when we got pics at the end from practise and qualifying but let it slide, Defs got worse with corona, haha I dont wanna be that guy but its almost the four stroke version of that Kick ass two strokes thread thats upto about 1000 pages or somthing! I'm guessing not being able to get up close with the bikes in the pits affects what you can shoot but i used to really enjoy the tech side and a little back story.

Now I know I said at the beginning of this build the goal was to use as much local stuff as possible, I guess that also translates into supporting local businesses but honestly theres no way I could build this bike with as many new and premium parts
