Well i finally finished the mill work for the XS1100 chain conversion, now i have to order new bearings and a sprocket. Then setup a swingarm and rear wheel so i can figure out spacers...

Looking really REALLY good there Smoke!

What was the final look you are going after? A Yamaha Kenny Roberts version of the Kawasaki Eddie Lawson Replica's (and the ZRX series)???

The plan is to find a subframe with a tail section that has the same lines as the tank. Im going to try and use R6 parts to keep it all Yamaha but i want to use a swingarm & wheel that takes a 200 tire, not sure if yamaha has something that big. If not i'll try to get a BKing swingarm and wheel off of ebay...

I use to roll it on about half way in low gear then turn it on and it would pull the wheel, no clutching to get it up. When it came down I would hit 2nd and it would pull it up again.

The XS-11 had about 83 hp at the back wheel of the first year Yamaha, they went down from there. :face:

With the use of an aluminum subframe, swingarm, lighter wheels and the absence of the heavy drive shaft, she should be really prone to wheelies!!!

Sounds like a legitimate business expense to me -

And I think we even know an operator!

The swingarm i chose for the project (00-03 GSXR750) was laying on my door step last night. I'll make some measurements and see if i can't make her fit this weekend...

Great pics.......saw a swingarm similar to that one you have....on a FXR. The triangulation was down...waited around for the owner to show up...didn't show, and have no idea how well it worked in his application.
One pic of yours shows Huey, Dewey, and Louie with no rags shoved down their collective throats......good project, thanks....Hank
