Pics of the New Parts

I have posted up numerous times throughout projects.

The latest two (2) projects are project JYB and my personal bike.

Project JYB, was to take a bike that really should have just been a stunt bike or race bike and try to resurrect it. That is why it is called Project JYB (JunkYard Bit$h). She actually came out nice. The bike has less than 3K miles, but was not taken care of and appeared to have been used for stunting for some time.

Both side covers heavily damaged (no JB weld does not constitute repair; continued to leak oil), subframe badly pushed, rear rim damaged badly (will not hold any air), wiring cut to allow operation with no keys, no decent fairings left, etc, etc, etc.

'07 GSXR1000, still pursuing title.

Personal Bike.

Finally got to properly fitting the CF Taylor Made panels. Installed the new tires this evening. I need to get a new rear sprocket (already ordered a 43T), as the +2 Vortech sprocket I am using at the moment pushes the tire too far forward (within 3/8" of the exhaust). The new rotors look good.

Here is a before shot, then some shots during and after the tire change. I rode it a bit today so that I can compare back to back with the new components. I also have rearsets that I need to install, but they have no provision for the rear brake light switch, so a bit concerned...

Rode it for quite a while today. The new bits are GREAT!

The highs:
- excellent cornering and traction
- great turn-in
- extremely smooth
- scary in 4th at 8500 and the front wheel just goes skyward (not big on high speed wheelies)

However, a couple of concerns:
- bike seems to sit a bit higher than previous with the 55 series rear tire and the 6.25" rear wheel. Sits with more angle on the kick stand.
- tire rubs the exhaust ever so slightly when braking hard (basically rear suspension unloaded). Should be fixed with the 43T rear sprocket.

is bad!, I'd hate to ride with those wheels on the street, but I suppose they are strong as stock, just not in the same price category

i wouldn't worry about the rearsets not having accommodations for the rear brake light. you're supposed to use front and rear break in unison anyways.

looks good

I, personally will NOT ride on the street with those wheels. aluminum wheels bend when you hit a pothole.

That the best looking exhaust for the newer Gix's. Taylor made right? I've heard horror stories about the piping/muffler quality. Hows that one holding up?

Thanks for the nice words, guys.

Taylor Made is holding up well. Quality seems good for both the muffler and the piping. My problem is that I kept the same length chain with a larger rear sprocket pulling the wheel in closer to the muffler chamber and discharge pipe. This should be corrected this week.

Wheels are worth more than some of my other toys as well. But... they were repayment of a debt, and the only way to get the value from a guy who owed me.

Composite wheels "shattering" is like many other internet stories; blown way out of proportion. Composites are stronger than other competing alloys, but lack the malleability, which leads to people's perception of "shatter". If you are beating on them that hard that they shatter, the comparable alloy would have long since let go. Now, UV degredation over time is not comparable.

I was involved in a project that utilized high angle carbon composite in an MLT application. Catastrophic failure at over 60KSI load was INTERESTING. No shatter, but definitely failure. The high angle composite definitely had strength that exceeded it's alloy competitors.
