Re: VF1000 wheels on the NS400r installation

Main issue with restoring the wheel sis the spoke locking nuts. Somebody on this forum has made a dedicated tool.

Re: NS400R RearSets

I'll keep an eye out for some. I did buy a track bike a few years back but I think it had home made rear sets since it did not have the 400 engine inside.

Re: VF1000 wheels on the NS400r installation

The tyre options for the front will be the limiting factor, but yes, most stick with the original wheels, after restoring them.

Re: Side Seat panels

Probably the better question, what colours is the finished bike to be in ?

Re: VF1000 wheels on the NS400r installation

To play with the VF1000R rims you will be keeping the hub sections of the NS400, so no need to worry about axle diameters or spacers. Tyre sizes however is a different kettle of fish, you may need to offset the wheel, or both sprockets to clear. From memory the NS shares the same rotors as one or tw...

Re: Side Seat panels

Re: NS400R RearSets

The NS is already quite well race prepped , not only with the riding position, but the close fitting fairing, side panels and stuff like the third exhaust winding its way around inside the chassis. Matching an aftermarket design to this with limited sales probably stopped the majority of suppliers f...

Re: SRC 475 firing order

Ah, I misunderstood. So two pulse sensors only 120 degrees apart on a 90 degree V triple engine (or is there a third sensor hidden above the generator ?) If the former the crank must have been a 30 degree offset pin on one barrel unless there is some other trickery going on, a programmable but fixed...

Re: SRC 475 firing order

A 120 firing cycle is going to induce a rocking motion on the crankshaft, not enough to be worrying, but other manufacturers have stuck a balance shaft in the lessen the effect. Only Laverda from memory made a 180 degree triple, but that was a four stroke and was created more by accident than design...
