    Cams timed today.

    Looking good there chap.
    Is that a real Corse Mag' clutch housing or a painted/modified OEM alloy one?
    I've a Corse mag' one on my bike it saved a whole 7oz's, the Corse mag alternator cover saved 11 oz's.
    So that was just over 1lb saved... Now where's my pie!

    Edit... Is there a reason that your water temp' sensor is on the wrong side of your motor?

    Thanks for the positive feedback.
    I machined the standard clutch cover which was Cerakoted sniper green by Wesley at hi-speccoatings.co.uk
    He also did the standard one too in black....

    I'll ask the engine builder why the temp sensors on the belt side.

    Default Another little job

    So, due to the unobtanium nature and price of orginal rotors I decided to build a pair to use on the bike and keep stashed away the brand new set I did manage to find courtesy of Jonny Sidemouth on Facebook, thank you.

    Carriers courtesy of Chris Bridgeland, thank you, whom I believe may have a couple more sets if anyone wants to follow my route. These are cerakoted as opposed to anodised and in a tougher aluminium.

    Rotors from All Bike Engineering in stainless rather than iron. I'm sure they'll be happy to supply more now they have my original pattern for shape, hole pattern and countersinking.

    Used new original Brembo bobbins and rather than spring washers I used 0.5mm shims as that appears to be how my originals were mounted. I did try wavy spring washers however they removed all sideways movement completely and I felt were too stiff.

    All finished off with some securing Araldite.
