The pipes are almost finished!!!





That is sweet. A GT750 would have been sweet, but they are heavy and require radiator.
How is it finding engine parts for the H2 motor? Cranks available?
Would be nice also to find an electronic ignition instead of 3 sets of points.
My buddy had a GT550 triple with a 3 into One Toomey pipe. It was a blast.

It took about a year to do the motor. Parts were very hard to find.

Jerry Hall of Hall's Precision Racing is doing the pipes. I dropped off the bike in October of 2015.

He's a one man operation. His shop is about 20 minutes from my house.

I'm hoping he'll be done in 2 to 3 weeks.

I'd keep my eye out for spare cranks and cylinders. Bearing,seals, easy stuff but cranks, transmission etc.. I know what you mean.
Keep us informed on progress, good stuff there man.
I always wanted to put an R6 into a RD400 Daytona. Or a Hayabusa motor in a 1982 GSX1000 Katana with inverted suspension and single rear shock. Retro shit is awesome.

Nice build! Will you please tell me what the rear Brembo caliper is from?
The rear caliper is from a Ducati 999
The rear rotor is from a MV Agusta
The rear caliper bracket is from a Suzuki RGV-250
The rearsets are from a Kawasaki ZX-6
The rear shock is from a BMW S1000RR
The rear brake reservoir is from HRC

I need to find some Yamaha parts to put on there

Great project, thanks for sharing the update.

Represent Yamaha with a nice classic Kenny Roberts Yellow/black/white paint scheme! An old friend of mine once painted an RC-51 track bike green and put Kawasaki script stickers on the tank, freaked so may people out. :scared
ZXRC :scratch

Very interesting build, the chassis will be able to easily contain the engine's output - unlike the original ! (500 was worse)
What sort of output does a tweaked H2 make ? - I think a standard one is round 65hp at the wheel, with good torque.
The expansion chamber looks like it'll be very close to the road on the right, they're too nice to deck them - extra ride height - it's a very pro type build, I'm sure it's all in hand (just thinking out loud).

This project checks all of the boxes for me. I had a hot rodded GT-750 Le Mans before my GSXR. I love the 2-stroke triple. Awesome!

After almost 2 years waiting for the piupes to be completed I'm on to the next step.

I'm right here, waiting for more!

EDIT: By the way, that looks awesome! It's going to handle and brake, which is where my GT-750 was really lacking. It was quick and it was fast but it didn't stop or go around corners very well.

Update:

I added a PM front wheel (ex-Team Suzuki Endurance), EBC rotors, Beringer calipers and Driven gas cap.

I hope to have it to the painter in the next couple of weeks.
