Fitted the old calliper to double check clearance, it's just the handbrake bit that needs modifying but I had read about this already

after sleeping on this a couple of nights, im going to remake the rear wishbones so the rod ends are straight, and have a bend in the side tubes, its not because of the angle its more to do with the clearance either side of the hub, as when you wind the joints in and out the gap changes, also they could do with being 5mm longer to suit std drive shafts, as the jig drawing in the book was wrong

Well got a bit of time on my mk2 rear wishbones today, decided against the bend so notched them on the angle instead





I'm thinking about putting a tube here, notched round the two



And a tube at the back, obviously longer



These tubes are 25mm diameter, does anyone think I need a diagonal, I could use 19mm tube, just trying to keep the weight down, I have seen rear wishbones with no diagonals just two cross bars like in my pictures

Well had a good day, went and collected an engine from Malc at Yorkshire engines, was a long drive there and back, left at 7:30 and got home about 2:30

It's a 2010 zx10-r







And a fancy shot of my garage

Cheers for the comments!

Sat down with my bike loom and labeled every plug using the wiring diagram to work out what's what

I think I'm going to use the bike loom as a base and extend and alter it to suit







Oh how I love my label machine!

Also my mate gave me a hoist, it was filthy so gave it a good clean and re grease, also shortend the loop chain from about 4 meters to a small hoop
