rear / upper adjustable engine mounts in place........

and with a bit of tweaking, the chain run is good, rear wheel axle, swing arm pivot and drive sprocket centres align, and my trusty spirit level says the motor is -

level :up:

Nice engine mounts. Just thought you might want to turn the rectifier/regulator up the other way to avoid water being funnelled in. I know it shouldn't leak but sods law says.....

Hoping to have it completed by March 2020.

Motor being rebuilt now, bike goes in for bespoke 3-1 exhaust system fitting in January.

Just the electrics to sort meantime (new charging system etc).

Unable to see any of your previous pics, but this one shows a great looking project.
Would have never thought of that frame working so good with a GT750 engine. :up:

After looking at the front end, I started wondering about those calipers....(Triumph/Nissin)
They look the same as TZ250 3YL/4DP which have a 83mm spacing?....are they 83mm or the typical 90mm as in GSXR

under-seat bits and pieces (2T oil tank, battery, fuse box, relays, coolant expansion tank and battery charger fly-leads) all in place. Battery sits in it's own space under the 2T oil tank (see post below), which is why you can't see it.

As I am not running the electric starter motor option for the Steam Triple motor, it means I can run a much smaller (lighter) battery.........

Image

Triumph T595 on the left, RGV250 on the right.

There was nowhere to mount the RGV battery in the T595's battery compartment, so I purchased a VJ21 RGV250 battery box............

Image

and set about cutting off all the mountings...........

Image

leaving only the tabs for the securing strap to attach to. Snug fit...........

Image

Then I drilled the floor of the T595 battery compartment to accept a pair of rubber mounts........

Image

and here it is, bolted in place and looking lost...........

Image

this modification allowed me to cut 1" off the top of the T595's battery compartment to allow the Aprilia RS125 2T oil tank to fit above it.

A truly fascinating project, Garry :up: I love to see your updates and solutions/engineering to get it developed.

Cheers Geoff
