  4. ok....so now we will fine tune the swingarm fitment by using this pretty cool scheibner laser chassis measuring system....we fit the device and make sure its riding in the centre
    PqSXqzr.


    then lie the machine down and zero the laser on the headstem centre
    you can see the screen on the laptop says its riding dead in the centre on the frame

  5. gxJF5h9.

    now we rotate the laser onto the rear wheel to see if its riding in the centre of the wheel....all is good

  10. That pipe looks like a HUGE amount of work!

  11. firstly, i'm pretty handy with a TIG, and i can safely say that pipe is a truck load of work. seriously, 10 points for effort.

    but more to the point, a cr500 on the road with tyres that grip, howleeeeeeeeey faaaaaaark it's going to be a monster.

    watching this thread for sure!

  12. God, those things are widowmakers. I'm still shaking from my 90 minutes on the KX500. You're a brave, brave man wanting to ride one on the road.

    Still, that's some pretty special work on the pipe, and fascinating to see a single swinger conversion done right with all the alignment gear.

    God speed, you f*cking maniac. When can we see it?

  13. This gonna be a beast :D
    I see from the pics you have the standard PJ carbi, i would really suggest an upgrade to the keihin PWK 39 carbi, fits straight in there with no mods and it will really improve throttle response. PWK would be much better for road use as well as it did for my cr500 motard.
