No sir. Started it in the drive - let it run for about 40 seconds (no fans) and shut 'er down. Wheeled it back in and tore it all apart. My triples are headed off to become part of a 2019 British SuperStock/Irish Road Race contender.

After reading through all your two stroke threads on NATS it looks like you have quite the penchant for old two smoke race bikes?! Are you a Brit? What pushed you into building this beast and what are your plans for it?

Whaaaat!??! You spent MONTHS building this already mega $$$$ bike (in stock form), and then never even rode it? What was wrong with it? It looked amazing from the factory, and then more amazing with all your hardware (which, I'm guessing, at least equaled the cost of the factory bike). If you need, I'll volunteer to ride it for you, and give you an unprofessional run-down of how it compared to my 2003 RC51 (closest thing I can imagine to compare it to that I've actually owned).

Nothing wrong with it. I loved it in stock form.

I put 30 miles on it before the first mod. Full Ti exhaust and Woolich tune.

Loved that setup for the next 30 miles.

The next 30 miles where on the dyno

No miles on the version 1.0 SuperStock HRC ECU setup. The motor/ECU is remaining the same for version 2.0 (so far at least )

I am in love with old 2 stroke GP bikes. My long term project is a 1985 YZR500.

I have managed to collect everything I need for the YZR, except the frame and motor. I was outbid on a prototype 1986 YZR500 motor early in 2017 and I had an interest in the 2017+ SP2 due to the prospect of fully configurable HRC Throttle by Wire kit availability.

Losing the bid for the YZR motor was the catalyst to try build a Works Superbike. The access and assistance that Ten Kate has provided has been awesome and I would not have got this far without them.

I also have a great HRC agent in Japan that is an email away from sourcing most pieces I need.

This build will really be spread over 3 versions.

Version 1.0 was the tuned HRC track day version. Version 2 will be this tuned HRC WSBK build - then if this can be completed, v3 will have a full 220rwhp Works engine power up kit to match the chassis and electronics.

I just want to have a Works HRC superbike in the living room LOL

You're a madman, and a genius.

I am undecided if the W in RRW should stand for Weaponized or Works ��

The front end is almost sorted - just waiting on the HRC sensor ring and sensor mount.

Then on to the generator, flywheel, radiator, oil cooler and the rest of the internal Titanium fasteners.

Then to tackle the rear wheel speed sensors and then onto the Endurance Bodywork.

The black race wheels have grown on me. Hopefully the street Marche's and OZ's are a simple match to what ever
platform forks and brakes you have - the race wheels are all bespoke per team - so the Honda Racing wheels are
different to the Ten Kate wheels which are different to the HRC wheels.

The OZ combat boots





The billet MEL linkage with Ti hardware - with the swing-arm, forks and shock, this will
now give me the complete "Irish Roads" setup, so the bike will be ready for super high speed bumpy surfaces

More HRC goodies.
HRC front wheel speed sensor ring, it fits the 6 bolt Marchesini wheel - but will need a custom ring for the 5 bolt OZ wheel.
The HRC 02 Lambda sensor kit that connects to the HRC harness. Will allow AFR logging and with the right extras real time fuel adjustments just like a stock bike








Out with the Honda mechanical switch QS and in goes the HM Load Cell QS.








The HRC style privateer endurance fairing pieces are trickling in.
Another 3 to 4 weeks for the rest. Retail customers seem to get bumped to the back of the line if teams need parts LOL





HRC CNC steering damper brackets

RC45, have I told you in the past year on how much I really don’t like you?

Blood should not be flowing at inappropriate places while at work...

Dang it man!

What to do when HRC can not provide the appropriate Wheel Speed Sensor rings for your OZ Racing WSBK wheels?

Do like Ten Kate and other WSBK teams do - go over to the CAD workstation and design your own sensor rings to spec.

Then after visualization on screen, 3D print some prototypes for fitting and alignment testing.

Next up, parts manufacture.

The progression from concept, through design changes, prototyping, test fitting & visualization of the final part - front wheel speed sensor mounting bracket.
*
This type of production process for the hobbyist was just a pipe dream 10 years ago - now I am able to use the same methods the WSBK big boys use and literally build a WSBK in my shed at home lol ��
*
Next onto the rear wheel speed sensors...

Next installment of “WSBK built in a shed” lol 😆 *
Finalizing fitment and alignment of the sensor components.
*
The big one now is the dual sensor supporting rear brake caliper hanger.
*
This will allow the HRC ECU to be run on the dyno. The front wheel speed sensor is pointed at the back wheel so it thinks it is turning - a little trick one of the big boy teams shared with me 🤫
*
Here are the front and rear wheel OZ sensor rings, the Marchesini rear wheel sensor ring and OZ and Marchesini specific front wheel sensor brackets ready for production . 🙂
*
The process of home shop 3D printing is not quick - many prints are left over night to complete so it can be longwinded to get designs completed ready for production.
*

Almost there. Just waiting on some CNC pieces to arrive, a few secret internals and more electrical goodies.

Ironically, Ten Kate will not have an official WSBK to support next year - I suppose this one that they are helping build in a shed will have to do LOL



And need to get the telemetry and data logging hardware installed.
Suspension travel, brake application, tire and track temp sensors and from the HRC ECU side full engine logging including AFR and if I can source the module, on the fly fuel and ignition trimming.

Last week we got a visit from Brown...

And now the beast is wearing a new skin while the HRC Endurance bodywork gets prepped

This will be the attire of choice when masquerading around in Irish Roads persona.
