    Planning?! Who are u talking to. I plan to make the most of opportunities as they come to me!

    Arms yes, rubber cones no. I keep thinking about making suspension arms, and I will no doubt try and waste some material at some stage, but currently I'm keeping the arms.

    Why would I be surprised? Your build has proven you are a talented chap, and years of spanking the monkey will give you great attention to detail!

    My notching is shit

    Have you tried your rage on stainless pipe - they claim it'll cut metal, not sure how it'll deal with stainless?

    I have made that £30 mistake twice now.

    Maybe that's unfair but I'm sure thats what fucked my first blade, and the second feels less sharp after I tried using it to chop some stainless exhaust last week.

    There is a stainless disc on their website. The saw I think is getting gradually duller with mild, I didn't use it to cut the 25 bar, but everything else I have cut I have used metal lube

    Where does the chain attach, does it bolt to the flange with holes?

    Chilly in the shed last night!!



    R1 Cradle Stage 1









    Re reverse, all planned out but as I don't HAVE to have one, I might not bother, depending how annoying it is

    Lol, you best get in shape then and trim that gut down. As physically moving that thing out of a tight spot will make you sweat.

    It's not to bad. Well it doesn't go so reverse is the last of my worries

    Need to loose some anyway, must be a stone heavier than when I made it, and it's a tight fit

    I assume you could maybe use a starter motor as a reverse?

    How's the drive going to be configured? Is it coming off that sprocket at a jaunty angle? Would the engine not sit lower?

    Tis an argument I have been having raging in my brain.

    It would sit max 45mm lower, but then I need a custom manifold, not designed by someone who knows what they are doing...ie not Yamaha.

    While I could bodge one up, I'm instead going to regret making the drive at a jaunty angle so I can revise it at a later date

    This weekend I mocked up my diff cradle from a drawing supplied by the Westgarage.





    Its maybe a little too tall, but i'm thinking it'll just about work if its "upsidedown" at a jaunty angle. It cant really be much smaller (required cog size to get a half reasonable gearing), and then it gets complicated with angles of drive shafts.





    Need to strengthen the subframe back up before I can continue.... uuugh more ££££

    Currently trying to get a good price to get some tubing bent, seems a mine field. Strongly considering spunking £180 on an eBay hydraulic bender but I am concerned about the quality of what might come out.....
