Hi all here is the next bit the exhaust, let me tell you what a horrendous fit, had to use copious amounts of filler first really disappointing bit of the kit, Paul Koo suggests leaving the screws loose then adjusting the gaps by gradually tightening them whilst adjusting the gaps, well the best I managed to reduce it to was 2 mill for a kit of this price I think that is really bad.
Anyway here it is with all the gaps filled.





Not happy with the silver shields they look very plasticky (I know they actually are) will have to try and change that, I'm thinking of trying foil over them)

Hi all well I couldn't resist putting together what I have so far.




This thing is huge. This is a 1/6 bike with a similar size engine.


And it's heavy.

That is looking rather nice, I wasn't sure about a blue Ducati at first, but it's growing on me.
Great work.

Hi all I've started on the wheels I've made up the disks

I've started weathering it


I've ordered some proper button head sockets for the disks instead of the screws that come with the kit (Another thing missing from the upgrade kit)

Hi all these are the screws that come with the kit.

At a huge cost of 3.49 for 20 including postage I think these look better

(Ron aka silver911 told me where to get them

Thanks guys.
Hi all here is the next update pocher would have you attach the rear sprocket like this

Thing is the rear sprocket is attached via nuts screwed onto studs so grubs screws were used to fix it.

Then a try of all we have so far.
