Well done.

On another tangent, I saw the latest work-in-progress by Mick Costin this week - another NSR500 replica. He does great work The handmade swingarm is exquisite. The custom frame looked li ...

Good stuff. He is part of Bimota history in Australia.

That looks like good stuff. By the looks of it, I'd want to ensure I'd rinsed all of the cleaner off the loo before sitting down though.

It's a standard FZR1000 thing so it's part of the EXUP CDI. It's Yamaha's virtual reserve switch.

I haven't looked into what happens when you disconnect the system as I've got an Ignitech and custo ...

Does this model have the fuel reserve float switch like the YB8? On that bike, low fuel sends a signal to the CDI to cut cylinder no.1 until you press the 'acknowledge' button. Could this be the same?

Thanks Brian. I'll have to get back to making the two piece closed in fairing, and the RGV250 resto, and the RD350LC resto, and the TZ250 fairings and........

Calipers rarely leak. I used to question the replacement of non-leaking seals until I replaced some just for good measure. The improvement in breaking feel was astounding.

The seals act as the spri ...

For DB1s in Australia, the information goldmine is Ian Gowanloch who originally imported them. You can contact him at Italspares in Adelong.

The bike shop called Gowanlochs is not associated with h ...

That's where it makes max power. I can rev it further if I want. 145 rwhp on pump fuel.

We could have tuned it for more power on the dyno but it would have made the engine more peaky, more suscepti ...

They had a YB4 in Padgetts in 1987/88 when I was 17 and it was like having Apollo 13 at the end of the street. The most beautiful bike Id ever seen! I always wanted one and this came up. I like small ...

That's the same as the hugger on my YB8. The RH cut out exists but is not used for anything. It looks like the woven rovings have been glassed over with chopped strand. Genuine Bimota looks better tha ...

Great story on the NSR. It looks like you did a proper job.

So why a YB7 after the excellent specials you've built? It's not the usual thing you can say, but they make the YB relatively ordinary. B ...

If you have cooling problems, generally the best thing to do these days is to replace the radiator with a Chinkster one from eBay. Even if they are no bigger, a new radiator helps a lot.

There are ...

The added complication with a replacement race fairing is that it will need an enclosed belly pan if you plan to race it.

MotoForza make a nice lightweight fairing for the YB8 but, apart from not ...

That looks to be in top nick. Very nice buy!
