    Bit of an update of sorts as like all good projects there never finished....

    Put in all the fluids and checked levels - not sure if the engine oil has gold in it but when its done in the bike may have to see if they give you a credit on return..

    The wiring loom had been all laced up but remained untested and RM was keen for me to turn the engine over before any rolling road sessions which sounded and proved to be good advice.

    So we jury rigged a battery up (the final one was still to be purchased at this time) by this stage we had also plumbed the oil pressure gauge, bike turned over on the starter button and after loosining the pressure line to bleed it we also had a healthy 80 psi cranking pressure. At this point the managment box was looking remarkably un interested and true to form we should have been seeing an led light flash as the crank sensor passed the trigger

    Traced out the wiring and if you can believe this the kill switch which was on a lanyard so if you fall off it kill the engine... well this bugger only made a curcuit with the lanyard disconnected - needless to say this now in the bin so a couple of quick wiring alterations and bingo flashing led :0.

    Been speaking to RM and now have 25L of Sonoco race fuel at almost £5 L good job its only 1/4 mile a time... still hoping to get the the RR this side of Christmas and should also have the painted tank and fairing back soon cant.....

    Next up was our first round in the Sultans of Speed championship, this took place at the Café Racer Festival at Autodrome de Linas-Montlhéry in France, the weather was scorching and peaked at 32 so no issues with grip.....load of press so here is a few photos.
