TA for that. I might copy you I'm afraid. It will be a good base for the rear bulkhead too. No progress yet. Hope to do some this week tho.

Yeh that's how much they quoted me for one. I made my own, cost me about £40 for the metal! and i can get mine in and out easier than the zcars one.

Here is a pic of the modified bulkhead. Initially, it went straight up but now i have put an angle at the top for better clearance behind the seats.

I did buy some polycarbonate to go up to the roof but have now decided to leave it like this. Im not fitting an engine cover, as this way loads of air can get to the carbs and i can show off my shiny bits!!

I will re route the accelator cable when i get some heatproof sleeving. The first one eventually melted from the exhaust heat, even though it is thermo wrapped. I wondered what that burning smell was!! :lol: :lol: :ohno:

Just received my new throttle linkage today from zcars. Not fitted it yet as all my fuel pipes etc are in the way, so a little bit of re-plumbing will be required!!

How are you other bike engined guys doing?? Gonna be ready for SCR??

Alburglar, Ade & Pete

Have any of you guys got round to fitting the accelerator linkage yet?? I am really struggling with my new one from z cars, the ratio seems all wrong and not giving anything like full throttle. If yours are like mine you have probably got a busa linkage as Chris says he hasnt made one for an R1 yet!!

Cheers
