TTX-GP Ready for the next round of Track Testing in 2 weeks
Been a long time
since I have done an update here and the reason
for that is I have been too busy working at the track to stop and
tell people what has been going on. The RC is done and gorgeous!
Works great, but we are about to make it better as we are developing a
a TTX-GP shock for it which should be completed early this spring.
Here she is along
side her big brother
Almost done, basically just waiting on the bodywork to get back from the Painter
Front Marvic Installed
Period Correct Marvic Wheels Brand New in the box!!!!
Bodywork is off to the painters today
Work began almost
unexpectedly Sunday when for some odd reason I felt compelled to
start stripping down the very bike I have neglected for 6 months
No bright shop lights, no bike lift, not even a rear stand to keep it upright, hell I didnt even move it into a proper work area I just started working on it old school right in the middle of the garage & the pieces went flying.
I had totally forgotten how much unnecessary crap they put on those poor bikes.
Ohlins 30mm NIX
Cartridge Kit RetroFit installed!!!!
along with a special test fit of SKF seals
more parts continue to arrive
Goodness in the form of a new 3D chain from Drive Systems
Split the calipers,
popped out the pistons and polished them to a mirror shine then
installed Fresh Carbonne Lorraine C60 Race Pads
After a decade and a half we are finally going to build another RC51, an SP2 this time. The goal is to use only top tier parts in a manner we all know will be beneficial, but we want as many of those parts to be something different than the norm. For example instead of using Sato Exhausts we will use ARATA and instead of DID chain it will be Regina etc.
The suspension of course will be Ohlins and the decision has not been made yet between the 30mm NIX cartidge Kit retrofit versus the 20mm re-work, but we'll figure it out soon enough.
