WOW Brett!
Awesome Job buddy... Just seeing this today for the first time.... I know we had talked about it awhile back.. ;)

I read everything one the first page and have pretty much glanced over the rest... I'll check it out closer when I get home from work...

2 things I have to say Okay...

#1) Again, I'm impressed, Awesome Job so far!..
Hey: By any chance, was I the one who posted up the VIPER when You saw it for the first time? :D LMAO


#2) FWIW: I actually Love the CBR tail on the Viper!

OH Yeah, (Sorry IF I missed this But I'll ask anyhow:p:D) Have you settled on a tail section OR... are you still up in the Air?
Because I know which I choose for it in a HEART BEAT! ;)


Peace Jeff

send me your cell number and I will send you a pic of my cracked tail. I have a guy that will repair it and can paint it for you or you can do that on your own.

I'm still up in the air. I'll probably try the cbr tail and see if I like it. I've got the bike rideable for the time being and I will probably tear it down this winter. I still have to do all the rewiring and relocating. I am going to get the frame and swinger coated, possibly the wheels too and it will need paint once I am done with the bodywork. I like the simple black/blue of the viper, but I don't want to outright copy it. So I might go crazy and coat the frame red and do black bodywork.

Not really an update, but it is all together and rideable. So I did what anybody else would do and took it to the track. I can say that it is like being on a completely different bike. Nowhere to hide at 150mph. But I didn't build this for a trackbike anyways. Was still fun to get back out there.

How'd the bars feel at the track vs. the clipons? I know on my Monster I felt less feedback with the bars.

I don't know about your bars, but mine are hard mounted all the way to the forks. Maybe the monster's are rubber mounted?

I didn't really notice much of a difference in feedback. I did notice that everything is amplified since the grips are so much further out from the pivot point. Of course it is also harder to get off the bike and down low in corners. I also wasn't that comfortable being on a new track, first time in over a year, and pretty much a new bike. I didn't build this for the track anyways. I have my 250 for that. This is mainly going to be my streetbike.

Thanks!

I had it out at the track on Thursday as a backup to my 250. It was a blast even with the high bars. Was able to get comfortable enough this time to get a knee down in the first of two sessions I had it out there.

Although the RC was fun on the track, the 250 is about 10x as fun. It feels like I'm on a damn bicycle out there. The thread for the 250 can be found here: Free Motorcycle! - PNW Riders

Thanks. I would show your passenger the rear seat before making a purchase. That thing is about the size of a postage stamp.
