Re: Niels his Slabside project

Well eventually found a 1100 leaver but without the matching cilinder since the 750 doesn't match. A GSXR fan not to far away has made one for me, I only need to pick it up

Today I took off the airbox. For this action the dynamo needs to be taken off aswell. When the dynamo was taken off I smelled fuel..... Right away I took out the oil which was far more than should and much more thinner than should. I gues fuel has been leaking through the carbs into the sump. The engine hasn't run with this oil/fuel mixture but I'm not sure if the cilinders are rust free since the fuel probabely has washed the oil film off

Re: Niels his Slabside project

Little update again. The 1100 leaver doesn't work for me. The spring of the Ohlins hits the swingarm. The 750 leaver hits the spring aswell so I'm not sure what to do regarding the shock

left the 1100 arm:

Re: Niels his Slabside project

Hm that's strange. I have an 750 arm / 1100 linkage / 1st gen 750 Ohlins shock and mine clears fine.
Are you sure you've got the link center rotated into the right position? The shock will only fit if it's in the correct position. And it's a 750 shock not the longer 1100 shock?

Re: Niels his Slabside project

I could only fit the shock with the link center rotated this way. By using the other hole there was tension on each bolt to put through and it was not possible to get it in. Maybe I have to sleep it over and have a new look tommorow...

Maybe there's a different between year models? The bike is from 87 and I'm not sure about the 1100 linkage.

OK Niels I think you will have to try again. The last shock bolt will NOT just slide in when using the 1100 linkage, that is normal (first one is easy of course ). With no weight on the suspension and the swingarm fully extended the shock has to be compressed a few millimeters so you can slip the last bolt in place. It's a pain in the ass by yourself, might wanna get a helper.

Also, make sure the link is modified correctly so it swings down far enough. Should look something like this when you've removed the right amount of material around the center so it doesn't restrict travel.

Check here http://www.gixxer.com/forums/showthr...+garage&page=4

There are some pics of the 1100 link with the modifications made to it in my 750 with a Fox shock in there. Pics might help you out with your questions. Take a look and let me know.

Re: Niels his Slabside project

Thanks guys. That picture helps a lot since I haven't machined the linkage and I do not have the original 1100 center. Someone has machined a center for me based on the 750 one. This is the first time I see one from an 1100 so I'm really not sure if it will work now anyway.

moi Niels, ik heb nog een rijwielgedeelte staan van een 1100 waar volgens mij alles nog in zit en mogelijk ook nog los (ergens)

Hi Niels, I got as far as I know all parts you might need, so ...

later ...

Don't give up yet this mod is worth doing IMO. That explains a lot Niels. See if you can get your hands on an 1100 center (even if it's just to compare hole center with the one you had machined) and modify the 1100 link so it will drop down. It can be done on a vertical mill but also with a a grinder, a file and some patience (Longav8tar did his by hand IIRC). Here's two more pics for you.

Re: Niels his Slabside project

Hans, thanks for your offer. Than again, you can use it quite well yourself probabely and I just bought one of ebay. Anyway it's time to pay you a visit again If only I knew the center was different I have could save me a lot of time (and some money).

Dutch, do you know how much is needed to machine off? In mm or is it about half? I think this friend will do the trick:

Niels,
That and a file should take care of it. I haven't measured how much needs to be taken off, the pictures I posted will give you an idea though.

I think I took off a little more than half the width at the thinnest point. Remember the raised area just holds the dust seal, it's not really load bearing. You will have to test fit, the link needs to swing freely all the way until it bottoms out on the frame.
Don't forget to also take some material away on the bottom of the link where where it touches the frame so the swingarm can swing all the way down with the shock installed. I think I went back and took off a little bit more after taking these pictures, while test fitting.

Re: Niels his Slabside project

Shot a picture of the link installed yesterday, note the position of the link center and the clearance to the frame once installed, with the bike on a swingarm stand so there is weight on the swingarm.

Re: Niels his Slabside project

Top, bedankt man!

Yesterday I made some adjustments so now I'm waiting for the correct center to arrive. In the mean time I respayed the calipers again because the first attempt didn't satisfy me. The layer paint didn't turn out nice and the color didn't match the NEAS units. I will take a picture of it when I've put them together.

BTW, which sprockets are recomended with the 17" wheels? I'm planning to take the same ratio as the Slingshot or maybe just a sprocket-chain set of a Slingshot.

Re: Niels his Slabside project

Allright, it was not a success right away but the shock is in and the bike finally back on the wheels:






Next step are the carbs. I've ordered a Dynojet Stage 3 and some velocity stacks.



I'm looking for some (duo) foam airfilters which can be placed over the stacks, so if anybody has a good advice, let me know.

Re: Niels his Slabside project

Well done, happy with the increased ride height?

I use Ramair foam socks, they fit over the RS38 velocity stacks

I bought on Ebay UK from a seller named eurocarb_ltd but they don't have them listed right now. I can't find them on the Ramair website either http://ramair-filters.co.uk/. Part# CS-006T

Re: Niels his Slabside project

Nice! I could not remember who had them on his bike but it was you

To be honest, I thougt I made a mistake because it seemed to be too low with the shock so I measured the height aswell from my 91. With the original seat it measures the same as my 91. I don't what a slabby does with the original shock anymore But it should be o.k. I guess.

Hi so how did the battery fit once you fitted r1 shock also did you have to do any think else to fit the r1 shock into bike ?

Re: Niels his Slabside project

I never fitted the battery box with this shock because I bought the Ohlins. But the battery box needs to be adjusted with the R1 shock and then you need some extra foam for example to get the battery a little bit higher in the battery box.
