Re: Marmite #2

Plan is to get it powdercoated and rub down the banana side face (eh) then a bit of Upol filler then have it satin black sprayed and hopefully it will look good

Re: Marmite #2

It's just an RGV250 swingarm that has been blasted then sprayed then rubbed down to find the imperfections :oops:

Re: Marmite #2

Yes Bernie :P

It's a bit of a dry build and will have a black frame and swingarm etc to go with the yellow bodywork

All fiddly jobs left which I seem to struggle with :|

Re: Suzuki RGV fork yokes and swingarm adjuster

OK Gerrit :P

If anyone else has an RGV bottom yoke then I would be interested

I know they are made with heavy pig iron LOL and folks like to fit an alloy lower :mrgreen:

Re: KR1S tyres

So still a bit of a mystery then these BT50's ?

It is encouraging though that Bridgestone have offered another option :P

Re: KR1S tyres

Worrying though as Bridgestone have stopped making one of their two tyres and the other tyre manufacturers had ceased making their versions a good while a go

I will keep my Aprilia RS 250 rear wheels just in case but that would be a shame :cry:

Re: KR1S tyres

Looks like BT92 are now NLA then ?

The 150 60 18 looks like a fitment for the NC39's etc so that may have saved us !

What do you make of the BT050 tyre ?
Is it a softer compound than the 90's as that is already a softer as in wear out quicker tyre ?

Re: KR1S tyres

Bridgstone UK offer no fitment

At M & P 140 60 18 isn't available only 150 60 18 :shock:

So what's going on ?

Have emailed Round and Black tyres as that was where I would get them from to ask what we can use now
