Just for future reference, have you got the Amp Hours and Cold Cranking Amp values for that battery? Cheers. Also, did you have to buy a lithium compatible reg/rect?

I have made some new side panels, do you like the decals, I thought it was a good play on the original XBR500 ones :)

Here is a pic minus the tank (Suzanne does have some limits on what I can bring indoors. Wood fires and half tanks of petrol are a bit dodgy.) The side panels are made from perspex sheet 3mm thick, its a bit of a pain to work with as it shatters easily, but my old side panels lasted 3-4 years so it lasts ok on the bike. The XB600R stands for eXperemental Blown Racer :)

Here is a pic from the summer, I hope it satisfies your craving to see the tank on, not much difference now except the shorter back end and longer side panels

Im a bit stuck there, I have a few of the long titanium engine bolts to get and some alloy banjo bolts and brake bleeders, but after that  I really cant see anything more I can do with the bike. I imagine that project will be at the end and I cant afford another bike to start a new project

There's only one answer Joolz - you'll have to sell the bike to me for £100 to raise money for your next project.  :o 8) ;D ;D ;D ;D

I have aleady had a few thoughts, alloy bottom yoke, alloy swinging arm and titanium swinging arm bolts and wheel spindles. Now all I have to do is find out what bike has a suitable yoke and swinging arm that will fit !
