    I had my forks upgraded with new internals... then had a custom rear shock put together with an Ohlins spring and different sachs bits to get the correct length/ function.
    The bike is set up perfectly for the track. The 888 alloy swing arm is lighter as well... helps to keep the bike's weight around 330#

    330#’s Dayum! That’s awesome.

    Who did your Sachs shock build? I was looking to have one on an aprilia sxv redone to correct the swingarm angle.

    Looking forward to seeing this build. I'm using quite a bit for my K75 handle bar setup from the Monster S4!

    On the build front....

    debating if I should order a set of carbon radiator covers from the S4R.
    on one hand, lighter and better looking.
    on the other, $ and doing the install.

    HUGE UPDATE*

    I realized that the S4 uses a black radiator and the S4R uses a silver.
    This means that the carbon end plates from the S4R will not stand out if I swap them on.
    Whats the point of carbon if people don't know it is there?

    In other news I ordered an OEM clutch slave to replace the silly billet one someone used.


    Also crossed the 1000 mile mark....

    I didn't think much of aftermarket slave cylinders until I put on e on my 851... the easier pull does make a difference.

    But I rode bikes for a lot of years with the stock ones too so whatever floats yer boat. Main reason I changed to aftermarket on the 851 was the seals on the stock ones are prone to leak after a few years.

    you can pull a couple of springs on an s4 and it should be fine. lowers the lever effort nicely.
