Well, this project isn't dead. Nor am I. Post major surgery - replumbed and with electronic ignition fitted - I'm back into work. Had a backlog of engines to do and to get myself moving i pulled out and restored my old F3 EX500 Kawasaki. That's done and running so it's work on the little Yam while waiting for engine parts for an RC30 and a race CBR600. Pipes are made - short, stepped and separate. Small alloy mufflers fitted. Hanging under the motor there's sfa to hang the mufflers on - RHS is hung off the bottom two screws on the clutch cover, LHS off the rear waterpump screw. Not ideal but the mufflers are very light. Bullet has been bitten and a non exup ignition box ordered from Alibaba. None of the 3 boxes I scored gave a spark. In-frame box tank has been fabricated in 16G alloy and is away for stage 1 welding. When it's done, I'll make the fittings and mounts. Clutch and throttle cables sourced, bars generally sorted - nylon ends made, grips fitted etc. Instruments to be mounted along with the OE top fairing I bought. Still a long way to go - but progress is being made.
