    I just realised the photos are upside down. That had me confused for a bit!

    Just done this really rough "photoshop" of what I want the tail to look like once I'm finished. Since I'm keeping all of the OEM mounting points in confident it can be done but then again nice been wrong before!

    Plus, anyone know if a ZX7R 'P' motor will slot into my ZXR750 frame? Yella?

    That looks good mate. Are you going to cut and plastic weld the original tail unit?

    Going to try.
    Then probably lay some fribreglass on the back for strength.

    Just a bit of advice from past experience: don't mix plastic and fibreglass. Even though they bond and look good when you create it at stand still, they will crack apart with movement during riding as they react differently to vibration. I found out the hard way after weeks of making the tail and then it falling apart after the first ride. Had to start from scratch with a fibreglass mold.

    "Brace the new peice"? You mean the subframe change or an addition to the tail plastic?

    Well, still waiting on my mate to weld up my subframe so decided to try out some brake callipers and an MC I had laying around.

    Brakes are original to the bike as is the MC (rebuilt) and forks (need rebuilding) so fitting up wasn't a problem but like always when I bleed brakes these ones seem like they'll take some felting to get the feel I'm after. Bled up using syringe and down using remote bleeder and have got some lever feel but right at the back. Got the lever strapped back overnight to see if that helps clear it then I'll push some more fluid up tomorrow. Failing that I'll start looking into a pressure bleeder.

    Silly thing is these brakes/forks/MC aren't for the fighter, they're to swap with the parts on my road but which are destined for the fighter! So in a way I suppose I'm making progress of a sort!

    After a night with the lever strapped to the bar the brakes have become much better.
    Still not got the feel I want but a few more flushes and nights with the brakes hard on should bring it up to where I want it.

    Ordered steering head bearings today and am looking for someone to do a fork service for me for a reasonable price; any recommendations?

    trooper Lu's.
    about $500 for a rebuild with new springs and shims to suit.
    They have done the front forks on my KTM 640SM which was so good they did the forks on my MT09, also brilliant. And an MT09 is complete rubbish to start with.
    Don't quote me on the price though, i don't work there.
    more titanium than my bike

    After advice from Yella I've gone with DoctorR1 in St. Marys.

    Picked up my head bearings and have started to strip back my brakes for cleaning so it's finally moving , slowly, again.

    Big things to fix soon are my road bike engine (caughing oil into cylinder 1 and 2) and the suspension.

    Once the engine is fixed I think I'm there mechanically it's then just aesthetics.
