My RVF400RR

Thought I'd share some shots of my nc35 following a recent makeover:











So far the mods include:
Race Tech fork internals,
Ohlins rear,
VTR1000F front disks,
SP2 calipers,
Brembo mc,
Tyga CNC triples,
Tyga rear sets,
Speedcell,
HRC CDI,
Tyga c/f air box w' Uni foam filter,
HRC copy carb slide springs,
Tyga full system,
K5 flywheel and stator conversion,
520 chain,
Tyga bodywork and fender,
Thermae 32 mm race rads.

I'll probably yank the quietening gears from the camshafts, it saves a little weight (plus I love the coffee grinder sound FX at idle). I also have an Ignitech programmable CDI I'd like to fit, the carbs are dialled in pretty good now but I think it'd come alive with some dyno tuning and custom map for the Ignitech. These little bikes are a lot of fun.

Just looks that way I guess, in fact it's only just clearing the exhaust.

Well Kurt looks like I need to come over and spend more time on or around your RVF400....

But in my defense he said he had Thermae radiators who make the front mounts for the RC so I thought it might have been a conversion set-up.

I am half of Thermae, we designed and made the front mount kits for the RC51 and we're now looking at rads for some other niche models. These nc35 rads are a direct replacement / upgrade for OEM, they have the same frontal surface area but use 32 mm cores as opposed to the stocker's 23 mm. Your bike most definitely deserves some Kurt ... though they'll cost you a little more than those c/f air ducts I sent you

Hey TLRSKUNK if he won't give you seat time on his bike come over here I'll give you some on mine.

Hey! That's my wifes bike!

Nice to know it was featured in a "Hey, listen to how obnoxious my bike sounds without an exhaust" video... She (The RVF) has a much easier life now...
