Looking good - great that it fired up no problem.

How will you set up the mapping for the new TB's?  Do you have an AFR or take it down the local dyno?

Good news on the ECU and will look forward to whatever mapping you create and what it gives you for rideability and throttle response.

An old friend who had "that" NWS framed TRX once met me at the Red Lion at Avebury. He just had the headers with no pipes and it sounded like something off of the MotoGP grid..... I was not impressed. Off he went on the back wheel. Later that day I was told the story of how he was pursued and stopped by Plod and the bike seized. tw@t.

I fired it up this morning. good news, brand new ecu and it fired up first time and settled down to a tickover, with no end  cans on it sounded like a top fuel drag racer.

The TDM is popular with older Greek women who often have facial hair, hence “drag bike”

TDM drag bike? That’ll be fun... not sure about methanol though, be difficult to find a filling station when you’re on tour...

so not that exciting.

in the interim I have finished and filled the cooling system, and had to take steps to sort out the rear caliper.
It wouldn't be my bike if I didn't have any completely custom parts on it, I have had to make some new spacers on the right hand side so the caliper carrier sits square over the top of the rear disc.

basically this is the problem:



now that the caliper carrier is slightly more inboard, the swingarm mounting point doesnt line up.

So I did this:



Getting it welded up this morning. I am nowhere near competent enough to attempt a job like that with the potential consequences of it failing, so I have farmed it out to a welder fabricator mate.

In hindsight I could have also spaced the brake disc off the wheel, but I think this is a better more permanent solution.


Now this is quite interesting (to me):

I thought I had mentioned that I had abandoned the exhaust job as it wasn't turned to the standard I wanted. all those welds so close together was causing a lot of heat distortion and it was looking like a bit of a frankenpipe. then I managed to sell the TRX 42mm 2 into 2 system which gave me the funds to purchase that system from Greece off ebay.

I have got talking to that guy, he makes loads of performance parts for the tdm, over there they use them as drag bikes, run them on methanol or turbo them. 

Was talking to him about my plans for throttle bodies, he was saying don't give a lot on their own, but combined with other mods they release a reasonable amount of torque on the low mid range (unexpected) and a couple of ponies up top. That is perfect to me. I love the mid range punch the bike has and any beefing that up would be great.

this is the infamous post in the flesh:

sprocket lines up perfect yes. I am actually using the tdm900 sprocket carrier, spacer and cushdrive as its identical - therefore the chain has to be line up correctly. the wheel is smack in the middle of the centre line, I just need to do a little jiggery p0kery with spacer to put the brake caliper carrier in correct position. I am guessing that the brake disc on the yzf750 wheel is about 5mm inboard of the TDM one.

Nothing that is insurmountable, or more than an hours work really.

after that I basically have a few body panels to throw on, fit an exhaust and she ready to go.

oh yeah I need oil and coolant adding too - must remember that...
