12/03/07 – First Test
Just a couple of weeks to go and the bike is still no where near finished. The modified GSXR1000K6 race fairing is ready and the modified GSXR600K6 seat unit fit but that is about it.
The new Ohlins TTX36 rear shock arrived on Wednesday and was fitted on Thursday. The Ohlins 25mm fork internals arrived on Friday and were fitted by Steve Jordan at Brands Hatch on Saturday night. On Sunday Steve set up the suspension and come Monday morning we were driving up the M1 for a test at Donington Park.
As you can see from the pictures the bike looks pretty good. The fibre glass filler hidden beneath the stealth black paintwork. As you can also see it didn’t last long. A shot rear tyre and some bad luck giving Matt a shock as he found himself sliding down the road.
