Re: Project Polar-Raptor

When I was playing with handlebars I started to smell petrol... after small search I founded the cause, fuel pump seal has started to leak. :shock: Because I needed to remove fuel pump from tank, I thought it would be good time to replace fuel filter also. I was pretty shocked when I removed fuel pu...

Thanks for all your info....
R1 fork exchange I'd be keen to do..but as my forks are adjustable on the extra with a steering damper I'm loathed to change them..especially as I'm a bit of a purist.🐴
Get internals replaced. ;)

Re: Cagiva V-Raptor 1000 race bike

This will look a bit odd, but shaping the seat to then make a simplified complete part which I can make a fibreglass mould from and produce a few one piece race seats. A small foam pad will act as padding for your buttocks! Plenty more sanding and filling to do though. It will need to be a two part...

Re: Project Polar-Raptor

For handlebar I needed to drill holes for risers. That wasn't a big deal, but I had to go for fatbar risers because I couldn't get normal risers fast enough or they were some kind of China crap. Which meant I couldn't use old handlebar. So I bought LSL x-bar risers, LSL x01 superbike handlebar and L...

Re: Project Polar-Raptor

BTW why did you use the R1 yokes as didn't the forks slip into the existing ones? I used R1 yokes so I could use R1 wheel, brake discs and brake calipers without any spacers or machining. I suspect this may well be decided by how the horns limit travel more than anything else. First I went and trie...

Re: Project Polar-Raptor

Long time since last post. :oops: Here is what has happen... This winter number one thing was to get R1 forks fitted. When I bought R1 forks, I bought it as a kit.
