That cylinder heads looks amazing!

Are those the Triumph valves or aftermarket stuff? Did you get any flow numbers on the head?

Those are stock valves but have been treated to a competition valve job. Sadly, no flow numbers as Joe, the owner of DWMS racing, is apparently not a fan of flow benches. The work does look flawless and once I get it all back together, I'll be heading to the dyno for final tuning and to figure out what sort of power she will be making.

still waiting on the correct con rod bolts to come in so decided to do some more work on the rear half of the bike.

working on the rear subframe and electronics tray

drop for the battery. thanks to the subframe bracing, it's pretty much invisible from the side.



Also fitted the modified NRG tail light

TBS winter project checklist and questions

What version of the NRC light did you get. As per my calculations the closest fit would be the old thruxton one. Is that it?

Yep, the Thruxton one. It's close but requires modifications

decided the tail light looked unfinished just hanging off the end of the frame so I attempted to form an upper cover out of sheetmetal. I'm not going to pretend I have any skills, but it came out close enough. After some bodywork and paint, I think it'll turn out pretty good.





Also, my removable passenger peg mounts came in the mail. Not too bad for $10 shipped and I think they will work great.



I'll be welding m8 bungs into the insides of the angled supports so as to easily bolt these on when I have a pillion.

Hey J, it may be the picture but the rear foot pegs look like they're going to interfere, or at least be very close to your chain. What bike are those pegs and mounts from? I will be attempting something similar. Cheers

It's the pic. The peg supports angle out and easily clear the chain. They are from an 89-99 fzr600.

edit: here's a pic illustrating the angle

If you're going to do this, this is the only source I found for m8 steel top hat bungs.
