From left to right: Engine just removed, new R1, spare engine
R1 motor - 175BHP of fun!!!
Prop adaptor has been ordered from AB Performance, so next job after a good clean is positioning the engine and fabing up some mounts. Although i do need to decide exactly what i am doing with the sump, some people say leave it as standards and mount sump flat, some say mount sump/engine flange flat, but Andy Bates recommends mounting as per angle in bike, extending sump and modifying pick up. Andy knows what he is talking about so i may pay him a visit to get the sump mods done, last thing i want is a blown engine during the first test session!!!
