2 teeth less on the rear sprocket (49 -> 47) for Pacific G.P. where this bike will spend most of it's time. This should make up for 2" diameter decrease in wheel size to bring final gearing close to stock.
New Talon sprocket mounting hardware.
The key to preventing the chain from contacting the tire and wheel, Graves Chain Block to be installed later.
Braking caliper relocation bracket for the MotoMaster 320 m.m. race rotor on top vs. the stock one on bottom.
Assembled and ready to test fit to the bike.
Turns out the tiny little tab on this brake pad retainer clip was a touch too high but was easliy 'massaged' to a lower position thus doing away with the rub :)
The front brake is a mixed bag of components including a Braking caliper relo bracket, MotoMaster 320 m.m. full floating race rotor, and O.E.M. caliper. Soon to have a steel braided brake line.
Mounted caliper to test the fit. It requires removal of the inboard brake pad just to get the caliper mounted. This will not make for a quick tire change.
R/H fork guard marked where it needs to be trimmed to clear the tire.
SME front axle sliders
Front axle sliders mounted
Had to replace the bolts in the lower chain guard and flip them around so the head of the fastners were inboard. This is required to clear the rear tire.
Installed to test fit.
Saftey wiring all hose clamps for coolant and oil.
Time to install the Graves chain block.
First need to trim the stock chain slider per the instructions.
Drill and tap 3 holes in the swingarm... this was a bit nerve racking!
Chain block installed, hopefully this will keep the chain from touching the wheel and tire!
Need to install the Sumo front fender.
Fender mounted straight and true.
Because I'm running a 4.25" wide rear wheel most of the 160 series tires are too wide and rub on the chain. I needed to find a reasonably priced 150 series slick so will give this Shinko Korean tire a try. If this tire works out I will eventually need the matching front after I burn up the Avon rain I'm starting out with.
Installing the SME carb. vent line catch system.
The SME system uses a manifold and long tube as the catch tank. The larger diameter white tube is the vent which routes up under the tank.
Foot peg sliders installed.
They don't match the pegs exactly but close enough . The '06 was the only year Yamaha used Ti foot pegs and the pattern is different than any of the other years. These UFO's will work great.
I'll be using the UFO peg sliders... thanks to Mike Redling for the hookup!
I ran mine around the left side of the engine using rubber lined hose clamps on top and the factory crank case breather hose clamps on the bottom. When using it as a dirt bike you simply leave out the drain plug on the end of the tube.
New Goodrich front steel braided brake line to resist bulging under pressure.
Bleeding front and rear brakes with the Motul RBF 600 Hi Temp Racing Synthetic brake fluid.
Pro Taper bars adjustment for reference in case I ever need to know where I had them set.
Zeta front brake line clamp. This was necessary for the new steel line and routing of the front brake line when running the 320 m.m. rotor. The stock brake line clamp has a curve in it to accomadate running the line on the inside of the fork leg. In SuMo trim it will run on the outside of the left fork leg.
Zeta front brake line clamp installed.
