Engine and gearbox all together in the bike. The sprocket adaptor which replaces the sprocket is on the output of the gearbox so just connect prop to this and the other end to the diff.

My pic is of a 2003 R1 with adaptor fitted but without the prop.

I have built a couple of busa engined cars,so if you need any more help just give me a shout. Most people struggle with the loom on the busa as it needs a few resistors soldering in before the motor will fire up.

all the major maunfacturers make sprocket adapters. Make sure you get one from a reputable company, props can kill... an unluck chap on here had a sprocket failure that was nasty but fortunately not fatal, turned out to be a very shoddily made one.

search for MK, GTS, Luego, MNR, among many others.

ps best to get the full loom, and chop it down after viewing the loom diagram.

Is it best to fit the engine first and then get a prop built that fits perfectly? Or is it better fitting the engine once you have a prop?

Engine first...

Measure up then have one made to fill the gap.





yours, Pete

I went into the RSPCA office the other day. It was so small you could hardly swing a cat in there.
