Nice work Dave, you will have some fun on this.

I have just started project Banarro, and will start a separate topic on this. 

Only got the Ariel Arrow 250 engine at the moment, looking for a D5 bike, less engine,to go to the next stage.

Today the silencer arrived in the post, now silencer is stretching the word silence, it is like a screaming banshee, this will have to be sorted out. It does look the part. 

Also today while giving a blast round the garden the clutch lever housing snapped off the bike, just has well it happened now and not while I was on the road. I also had a little issue with the chain rubbing the chain guard, out came the hack saw and a bit more measuring  and cutting and this was also sorted out. other than that it all works as it should.

Digby - that is the Honda front end, so his brakes should be fine.

Dave - those rear engine mounts looks 100% better. Well done !  Also...... that looks like a series 3 in the picture? 😊  

Sorry my mistake,but pleased to note that Specsavers have a sale on tomorrow.

Good to see the CG front end on it,certainly breeds a bit of confidence when braking.

Friday will be the day it goes for the MOT.

Still not happy with the exhaust the silencer, it does come with a removable baffle but this does not make any difference to the level of the noise.

Hi Flitdog,

I got the silencer off E Bay, It is a WASSELL CHROME 18.5" REVERSE TULIP END EXHAUST SILENCE From a company called Manx Direct , it comes with various reducers so can fit different bore size down pipes. What I did for the exhaust was to use the down pipe bit from the Honda exhaust this finished up right under the foot peg, I then used an old AJS down pipe which is a tight fit over the Honda exhaust which brought it out from under the foot peg, I had to put a small dent in the top of this bit to get the clearance for it to fit. It is such a tight fit over the down pipe that no clamp was required. Hope that makes sense.

I got some decals for the tank. Not to sure about these, should have fitted closer to the front of the tank and a little higher.

I took it on the M25 and that had a 40 MPH speed limit has some one was walking on the hard shoulder, then
I got it on the A1M just to see how stable at speed it was, it hit an indicted speed of 65 MPH, the bike was stable at speed and got there pretty quick , the bike held steady with out any nasty twitching, the carb needs some adjustment as it run better at part throttle than full throttle. I was pleasantly surprised how quick of the line it is. I need a better rear tyre, it is one of them cheap ones and cranked over on its side it didn't inspire me  to push harder, and I think I am going to put a bit more oil in the front forks as the damping is not to my liking as well, but other than that I was very happy with it, I won't be pushing the limits of its handling or speed but it is nice to know it is there if I need it. I have my bigger bikes for that. 

Thank you all for your input.

After my visit to the Nationals two things become apparent, One the air filter needed some sort of shield to stop the rain running into it and two the pivot point for the rear brake torque arm needed moving. 

To address the first problem I made a aluminium shield to cove the top of the filter.

https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4375/37029362542_6836e9a3f4_b.jpg

The next issue , the brake toque arm, the problem only came to light while strapping the bike down to the carrier, has I compressed the rear shocks the torque arm was limiting the movement at full deflection . This was clearly not safe, but to be honest in a real life environment it would never be a problem, but better safe than sorry. To resolve this issue I moved the original bracket from the left side of the swinging arm to the right side, I always thought this bracket was welded on but it only has a small pin welded to the the arm that locates it in position. 

So all sorted. while I was working on the bike  I gave the head light brackets a good clean, they were much admired by every one at the show, I even caught someone measuring them up so they could use them on there trails bike. not going to say who it was , but here is a clue "Ruin Everything Mechanical Eventually"

I was admiring that on Piquet's pictures. Looks the business, nice filter cover too.

I recently spotted some headlight mounts when looking for something else (rear indicator mounts) - both are available for less that it would cost me to make then from scratch.
