Blackout's 2020 Mods....

Recommended Posts

blackout

Started stripping the bike down for some more custom parts.  I'll try machining a new top triple with it's main purpose to allow standard clipons to mount a half inch higher than with the stock triple.   I plan to revisit my ram-air intake which will most likely require a custom fuel tank.  The bike is going full track, so lights will be removed and the upper fairing lowered to accomidate the lower clipon position.  As usual, this thread will be updated as I go so you guys can witness any fails, but hopefully more success.  :)

Since I'm using a manual mill, probably not.  Just takes too long for a novice like myself.

Also, there will be no provision for the key switch on the new top triple.

I'm planning on doing a relocation for the key

Finished boring the three holes and the geometry seems good so far.

Sweet

Gonna use a rotary head to clean up the sides or just do it all by hand?

They are for cinching the triple to the forks and center pivot.  It's a some what unique design having the cinch bolts on the inside.  This allowed the outside ends of the triple to be more shallow so that the clip-ons can be positioned farther up on the fork tubes.  The bottom of this triple is flat.  The stock triple bends down quite a bit (A common feature on bikes with handle bars.), forcing the clip-ons lower than most super sports.  That's my observation anyways, I have not taken exact measurements off other bikes.

If this triple works, the forks tubes will need to go up at least 3/16" in height, changing the bike's geometry, but many racers seem to run up to 5/16" higher.   The clip-ons will be able to mount 1/2" higher over the stock setup and the outside cinch bolt is gone so risers can now be used without adding a spacer to clear the stock cinch bolt.

Top triple is done.   So, this design allows standard clip-ons to mount 0.50" higher than stock.   The forks need to be .187" inches up.  I was lazy and nervous and only removed a small amount of material from underneath.  A CNC version would be lighter.  With that being said, the part surviving a crash is important.

2017 R6 fairings.  I have a build thread from two years ago for those.

hope that fuel tank is empty :P  
also, is the pleated filter part of your ram air kit?

Here is the build thread for the 2017 R6 fairings.  A lot of work was required to make them work for high street friendly clip-ons.  On a pure track bike it would be much easier as the side panels would not need to be extended.

Unless it's brand new, a fuel tank is never empty.  ;)  Ask any welder.   But, there is no fire in the wood stove.

What filter are you referring to?

No filter there.  Just the air box.  Must be an optical illusion.  Not to mention my phone camera sucks.

For 2020, I decided to adapt 2019 R3 bodywork.  I decided I wanted something more narrow and did not want to hack up my modified for street R6 side fairings.  Hopefully the R3 fairings won't be too narrow for the 07 engine.  Two years ago I almost went with 2017 R3 bodywork, but never pulled the trigger because I disliked the looks so much.  But the new R3 looks like it belongs in the R-world.   And a ram-air intake opening all set to go.

The tail fits nice.  The rear mounting holes on the tail line up perfectly with the welded frame nuts.  This makes sense as I believe the R3 uses similar rear light parts as the FZ07.
