Cheers for the fairings link mate
I worked out the RGV race glass from Tyga will fit with minimal dicking around. Still need to get the glass tank made up to make it look the goods.
So I got both motor mounts made up by Action (awesome shop that it is) and got to keep one of their duds. The holes didn't align properly so hey cut another for free.
I worked out if I drill another 10 mm hole just down a bit from the existing hole, I can fit them inside the frame a bit, and this leaves room to stack batteries right up close to the sprocket (not too close though
). The 10 mm rod with a tubulas sleeve works well to hold everything in place. I'm looking to get a high tensile bolt of 260 mm length to do the same - I don't think mild steel rod will cut it.
I also decided I can still use the 30x30 ally tube, but not across the frame, rather a hanging U shape to support the weight of low-slung batteries. And I can still use the 20 mm crash bars I'm getting made up. Gotta protect my investment
I also got my slab poured for all my hobbies. The Mrs wants the living room back
