Ok, I finally have another update! Where to start...
First off, Half-Caf got some new forks!
As you can see, there are also some dual-piston calipers on there as well. With new pads
They will require a bit of motivation to work..
In other news, I've been slowly tearing down the new 900 bit by bit. I was finally able to remove the subtrans today and free the engine from the frame.
Here is what I'm left with now:
As you can tell, it looks pretty similar to a 750 (it's basically just a modified version) In fact, by looking at these pics, you will see the output shaft is the only difference between the transmissions.
Also, check out these diagrams from the FSM's
Hopefully these similarities will make my life easier. Maybe things will be as easy as swapping the 750 trans guts in the 900 case.
I already purchased a full 900 gasket kit, so I will be doing a complete overhaul on the engine in the process.
I've also been purchasing quite a few goods while I've been laying low You will definitely see these popping up soon as I put some more time into this build.
I love updates! Do you think you need to swap the tranny guts? The sprockets won't line up?Hold on...how much are you swapping? I thought you were gonna put the 900 crank and topend on your 750 block? I am easily confused...
Yesiree! It was a pleasant surprise, too. I figured it was just some plastic stick-on nonsense that I would just remove. However I think I'll keep the CF (it adds a nice touch, no?).
Besides, I'm sure it greatly adds to the structural integrity of my triple trees
What front end are you using exactly.I know its a CBR,but what year? I need something mo' better...
It's off a 94 CBR600F2. All the F2 front ends are the same (I think they ran 90-94).
I wouldn't consider it a "golden solution" just yet, though; I'm still waiting to see if the stem length will work out (fingers crossed!)
Once I get those tapered bearings in I'll mock it up and see how it looks.
