ordered a new rear shock for this project, so set about renewing the rear suspension bearings. This is the rear shock lower mounting bearing and sleeve - in need of lubrication ?

out with the old.............

Image

and in with the new...........

Image

that's the suspension bearings taken care of - awaiting replacement wheel bearings now.

then the VJ23 headlamp / clock set mounting bracket and fairing stay bracket arrived from Japan so, after much messing about getting it all to fit the GSX-R frame, I did a test fit with the LS nose cone..........

Image

liking the look of the fairing, so I replaced the LS nose cone with the blue / black / white one and added the r/h side fairing............

Image

Image

think I will go with that - may have to replace the TR750 seat unit though.

Riders eye view............

with rear wheel, hugger and fairing tail panels in place..........

Image

I had to cut the fairing tail panel in half to get it to fit the fairing sides - this is the gap it leaves..........

Image

it's a wide old engine is the GT750 :shock:

VJ23 coolant header tank fits snugly though......

left as they are at the moment Dave - the bike is a test mule for some ideas and is constantly evolving, so no point in making it look pretty just yet.
Most of the XR11 features I wanted to incorporate (race seat, fairing, forward facing calipers etc) have now been replaced / upgraded.
