Ninjaman's Track Bike Build

Hey guys! Figured I'd go ahead and start tracking progress with a build thread. Haven't done that much yet, but definitely appreciate the input. Enjoy.

My first track day with my friend having a bit too much fun with photoshop.
Pretty much stock in this pic.


Decided after a low side it would be a good idea to go with some bodywork, so I paired up with a buddy and oredered though hotbodies BOGO.

Broken down ready for some bodywork.


Mounted up.


Hotbodies lined up pretty well actually. Really not bad for $385! Will be updating as I finish them up with paint. In the mean time though, here are some pics of the tank sliders I'm making.



They're not done yet, but a work in progress.

Bike as it sits:
Vortex rearsets
Woodcraft stator cover
M4 Street Slayer
Hotbodies bodywork

Currently on the to-do list:
Paint bodywork
Ebay fuel tank
Finish tank sliders
Water wetter coolant

Started painting last night. Also got my fuel tank in off ebay. Not bad for $130.





I am going to re-do the slider on the left side. The one I made off of my original tank doesn't quite fit the dented area very well. Once it's done you won't even be able to see there was a dent.

Also, ordered up a RHS woodcraft case cover

Here's a pic off woodcraft's website. I got it with a red slider to match the other side.

Progress:

Got the ebay fuel tank mounted up last night. I'll be re-doing the slider over the dented side since mine didn't end up fitting very well.


Also a few sneak peaks of what's to come




Going to have a black/red color scheme

Nope, I can post more pics later, but there are 3 layers of fiberglass/resin. I'm using bondo to give it a finished look so I can sand/paint it nicely.

Actually I do remember seeing a write-up on another forum.. that was you wasn't it??

Did you ever get that bike fixed up? I'm not running frame sliders because of what happened to your frame in your get off.. hah. Case savers for me.

Yup, that was me. Bike is fixed now, aside from the cosmetics. Tank slider worked well, tank never touched the ground, but it did dent it. I think 3 layers is about perfect. I made a new one to cover my dented tank...haha. I really think if I hadn't had it on there, it would've gone all the way through, just look at the size of the dent


I almost wonder if I had done less layers, if it wouldn't have transferred the energy around so much and would've cracked the fiberglass, if the dent would've been smaller. I don't know, but 3 is all I'll put anymore. There was no sign of the fiberglass getting worn down from the pavement.

Have fun man!

Yeah hard to say if it would have cracked and dispersed the force better. I do like 3 layers.. seems to be about the right thickness.

Crazy how dented your tank is though! I picked mine up off ebay for fairly cheap so I could save mine in case of a get off.

Thanks man!

yeah...that's why i think it wouldve otherwise exploded on impact...haha. That's a lot of force to do that...

good news is, it's still completely usable. I have another tank I bought for cheap, like you - but unfortunately, it's green. So if I ever get my bike repainted, I'll get them to repaint that as well and put it on and keep my current one as a spare.
