Many thanks for the comments....it really does make a difference.

Just got some news that the JUNE 2020 Cagiva Elefant International treffen has been cancelled due to the virus thingy.

This means I can switch back to the VDUE Cagiva thingy as the twin steer sidecar elefant unit cannot be exhibited as per planned in the Swiss Alps.

So......after a slight lull, it is time to address the radiator outlets....just as WEED suggested




[img]IMAG0660 by bear (as in animal ..not gay idol), on Flickr[/img]






The poor image shows outlets blanked off and repositioned to suit the VDue engine





[img]IMAG0661 by bear (as in animal ..not gay idol), on Flickr[/img]





Here is a shot with the radiator in the frame and the proposed outlet route





[img]IMAG0662 by bear (as in animal ..not gay idol), on Flickr[/img]





The alloy ears each side help the air flow but also give an area to bolt things to.

Here you can see a marked black circle indicationing where the water outlet from the radiator top outlet will pass through into the engine area

From here it will go to the top cylinder head water inlet, whilst a Y section will run down inside thwe ears to the bottom cylinder head inlet.

This should make for a tidier option over the standard VDUE water pipe route...by going down into that gap betwwen frame boss and engine.

Whilst the ears on the other side has the coil pack and wiring from FRP and our man GUIDO

The battery tray was rougly positioned annd spaced prior to welding.

[img]IMAG0664 by bear (as in animal ..not gay idol), on Flickr[/img]





Then.....I had to ensure that the OEM seat and fairing tail unit all fitted without looking stupid.






[img]IMAG0663 by bear (as in animal ..not gay idol), on Flickr[/img]




With this done....it was bolted it up then alloy welded in place and sent off to the powder coaters.


Next ..............Foot pegs, gear lever, footcontrols and the chain to fit. Then run some brake and clutch lines prior to going to GUIDO for early APRIL.....only if Germany are accepting any guests....of course!

Nice to see some progress and the MAd Professor getting some joy time in with his toys.....Does guido supply all the lines for the snail cams from the power valve servo unit to the 2 cylinders?.....

Welll........got a bit of verbal abuse for visiting the workshop yesterday.

Not too happy and made my views clear...so much so that left her in tears and bawling.

Still I have another two grand children....so nothing lost there...and she will get over it.

The workshop is 24 miles away .....although all the metal suppliers are now shutting down as the UK enters isolation

The engine was supplied with all snails or cams fitted and all cable runs in place but no cables.

I need to secure a mount for the servo but things are cracking on and it would have made a nice piece at the Manchester show.

Ho hum......I am not too keen on body work or painting BUT it will either be metallic flake silver with blue mirror chrome vinyl sections or full blown C593 Cagiva GP Red with Yellow number boards....which looks great with white wheels

But none of this matters until Guido has prodded a German finger at it


Glad some one out there is reading......


Gavin

Just whilst I remember....The Large threaded rod thats bonded into the underside of the seat unit...with a domed castle nut in it....pushes through the central hole of that cross frame rail that you are busily" blocking off" with a battery box.....it goes through the middle one of the front cross rail...If you didn't know that and I didn't mention it...it would be my fault....Flat battery....

I think you'll find theres a lot reading...frig all on the box...except doom and gloom...so I limit myself to once a day for viewing....So ...yeh...engines come with the snail cams...but its the "right length" of cable runners and cables with the correct nipples thats needed.....its Mick thats asking...hes maintaining the servo motor in its original mount....back of engine bracket that holds the servo and typical bimota stlye...doubles as an exhaust mount and damper for the front expansion chamber that comes through the swinging arm....Evidently as you dont know where youre putting your servo yet....you'll be going order to size and length presumably...but from where?....

Well...he is in luck

With the zeeltronic kit from Guido...there is a diagram with lengths and images

The paperwork is at the workshop and as soon as I can I will send the images

He could just order the actual cables from Guido....if he sells them...otherwise it is a cable kit and burnt nipples.

Enjoy.......bet the roads are empty over the Peak District

I think there are plenty out here reading Gav. While it is Germany get Guido to put a pair of his skull cap heads on it.
Cheers
