Good Afternoon All,
Recently I managed to push my poor little 7 port 1399cc A series just a little bit too hard and pop some oil seals on it so its an engine out jobby to repair it.
Ive always fancied popping the R1 engine in the mini and now seems to be that perfect time to do it!!
I have a 2003 R1 Track bike and also an over spec'd Ex British Superbikes engine which is brand new, never run and in the crate engine.
Sooo the plan is to transplant the BSB R1 engine into a promotive frame and take all the ancilliaries and running gear from my track bike!
I plan to do all of this in a week or so (working on it full time) to the people that have fitted this kit..... is that an unreasonable time scale?
I'm currently working away at sea so cant start the project yet but I have been looking for a few parts for the car and struggling to come up with anything from google.
People have been using 'Fluke Motorsport" but I cant find anything by them relating to the 2003 R1? (Anybody got any links?)
Any recommended websites for spares etc would be greatly appreciated and I will post pictures of the transplant when I get home in September.
