You should perform a thorough tune up on your used moto that includes valve adjustment, throttle position sensor adjustment and throttle body balance

Iíve watched some videoclips about what you wrote. As I understand I should do all these 3 steps in the exact order you wrote them down. Is that correct?

Valves and TPS must be done before throttle body balance. 

Balancing the throttle bodies is the last thing you do.  It's done after any and all tune up operations like air filter, new spark plugs, injector cleaning, etc. are done.

You'll do the steps in any order I tell you to do them? Will you do other steps in betweenólike dance steps, tango maybeóif I tell to do them, too? What is wrong with doing what The Mighty Gryphon tells you to do? Do you think it's right he should feel left out? There are principles that govern how tuneups are done correctly. They are available from many sources.

I admire your resourcefulness in modifying your moto to the extent it is currently. Can you explain to me why you modified the moto first before you verified that its engine and engine operating systems weren't junk?

You can always rebuild a K engine. I heard :) or maybe because I know I can do anything if I put my mind to it. Yeah, must be that :)

So here is the main subject of this thread : a cnc machined bracket to make possible fitting the r9t front wheel.

Looks awesome Flodabo,

Any chance you could post details of the front axle.  Interested to know if you needed to change bearings, spacers etc and if you had part numbers for those.

Cheers

Hello Shonkster,

I used the K75 axel but had it machined a bit. R9t wheel came with bearings that fit spot on on K75 axel. Spacers from K75 cover the r9T wheel bearing almost perfect so I used those, again machined a bit.
Good luck with your build!

Please verify if the tank was modified to straighten its lower profile and, if so, how that was accomplished.

Hi Laitch
Tank is under a home made carbonfiber cover and in order to have that shape I had to move tank backwards a bit.

Thanks for the clarification. Yours is a thoughtful customization and it can serve to show that fenders can be integrated into a compelling design; there is no particular need to be spewing water, mud and gravel in your wake, up your backside or into the works of the moto.
