Marking my cut lines.I originally started out using a razor knife to cut the material and later discover a good ol' pair of scissors worked better.

The material is self adhesive and while it sticks fast fairly decent there is a little ability to manipulate it to where you need it.

I worked on lowering the bike while I had the top tree off. I tried to lower it two inches however for some reason the tubes stopped 1 1/2". I'll try it again after the motor is back in the frame.

I made my initial contact with a CP Piston rep today in an attempt to get some parts ordered. Michael at EBR turned me onto CP as they (EBR) predominately carry road race geared parts. I dealt with a Terry Stewart who is a CP distributor and a Nitro drag racer, cool!

Mike1125 had given me the heads up in regards to having to order 4 pistons when ordering custom pistons. So at this time I'm looking to see if I can go bigger than the 3 MM overbore (1190) that the road race guys are limited to. In the area 1250cc would be fine if doable.

CP is also Carillo rods so I am looking to change the rods also. Erik himself told me to at least change the rod bolts.

Terry has done cam work on the 1125's so I'll wait to see what he has to offer as well as what they are going to run me.

I'm hoping to get some numbers on pricing here shortly as well as availability (sounds like everything is 6-8 weeks for custom). I'm OK with the time frame at this point as this stuff isn't on the shelf anywhere and what is is for the street or road racers.

I picked up some of the bodywork I'm going to use and started test fitting it. I originally was going to use a stock tail as I wanted to be able to gain access to my electronics. I have since given thought to that and I'm going to mount them in the nose where the headlights use to sit.

I went with a Flexi-Glass Super-bike tail section with integrated seat pan and their ultra light nose. I also picked up a front fender and under-tail but decided to not use them.

Quick look at the tail.

Rear subframe.

Looking at the pictures of the EBR light weight "structual" subframe gave me the idea and rough dimensions to cut my subframe.

I will have to add a slot for the strut once I am able to bolt the swingarm back on. The area created should be large enough to hold all of the wiring along with the battery.

OK I believe I have come up with my bore size of choice. As of now I'm going to go with a 4.270" bore which will net me close to a 1250 CC displacement (1247). This bore size will leave me plenty of wall thickness on both the thrust and non thrust side as well as the skirt. By going this way I won't have to use epoxy or block fill to reinforce the areas that may be a little close to my minimum clearances that I desire.

I CC'd the heads tonight (non scientific way) and came up with 26.4 Combustion Chamber volume, small!

A slight change in plans, again. The bore is going to a 4.275" in order to come up with rings. The 4.270" apparently is an "in between" size. On the plus side I will now have a true 1250 CC/76.3 CUIN motor.

My XBRR airbox showed up today,  :mrgreen:  It is far more complete than I was expecting. Weight wise the complete ram air weighs close to what an OEM outer airbox cover weighs.

Since the airbox is built for an XB it needs a little notching to clear the 1125 frame.
