First start up of the engine today. Sounds sweet, not been run in a few years but started easy and seems to run well, got a few teething problems to sort, the speedo sensor wiring and calibrating and the rev counter is showing a fault code due to a missing fuel sender.

Will add some pics and a video of start up tomorrow.

Engine pretty much all fitted and running, sorted the rev counter by grounding the green and yellow wire from the cdi and got rid of the fault code for the fuel sender.

Got the koso speedo wired up to the standard R1 speed sensor which seems to be working, although may need some tweaking to calibrate it.

Jobs left to do before mot.
Finish painting boot, bonnet and doors.
Mount seats and harnesses
Fit lights
Fit new neutral switch as existing one seems faulty.

Fingers crossed first show trip will be gayden:)

Have been in close contact with John at lynx-ae and he is in the process of fabricating ten complete kits, details of which will be updated on his website soon.
