Information: started out as a tatty xt with faulty starter clutch, started to tidy it up and lost the plot. went nuts on the mods. supermoto front fender, enduro head light, ktm WP forks, magura fat bars, r6 brake disk, modified gsxr front brake caliper, ccm 650 carbs, modified air box motad stainless front pipes, engine recently went bang due to a woodruff key shearing on the crank and causing the balance shaft and con rod to colide and resulted in the balance shaft being bent and shattered the crank cases, pics of carnage to follow. spare engine i had in stock was stripped down and now has been rebuilt with all new woodruff keys and of course a bigger high comp piston and a flowed head, so should give a healthy power gain. whilst stripped of engine frame has been powder coated and a modified r6 swing arm installed and when finished will be fitted with yzf wheels
