Cool! I found something I like about them; 500 bucks worth of Magura Hymec (y) hydraulics to replace a 40$ clutch cable. I might need to try one of those, does it work?

Gone start a TR1 build with MT09 Frontend, rear sving and wheel build or Mv Agusta Brutale 800rr Front end, rear sving and wheel. Will Make better video on youtube of that build:) The Mt09 engine will go in a atv/quad after the TR1 build, will also film that.

So if you like this type of projects. pleace subscribe, like and share:)

Cheers and drive safe:)
I assume you mean Marzocchi front forks, but where on earth are you going to find an MV Agusta Brutale 800rr suspension that is not already attached to an MV Agusta Brutale 800rr :unsure: and if you do have access to one of those why would you not make an MV Agusta out of it? It's a way, way better motorcycle frame and engine then a Virago could ever be.

I just found a thing called the TR1 'open frame modification' <- Don't do that it's beyond crazy. It is Never a safe or sane idea to connect the rear wheel of your motorcycle to the front wheel of your motorcycle exclusively via the cylinder head bolts.

What do you mean? I dont understand.
I mean if you google "TR1 open frame modification" images the first 2 pictures that show up will be a virago with about 4 inches of pressed steel frame removed because somebody thinks it looks good. Don't copy that modification unless you want yet another motorcycle that can never be ridden.
Now I don't understand: " a 2018 mv agusta dragster 800rr that could not be road legal " <- is that another way of saying it's stolen goods so you can't get a clear title?

Sadly there is zero engineering going on in these builds, no practiced skills or knowledge being displayed in the execution and no destructive or non-destructive testing provided to make sure it all works.
Well for one it looks like there's no way to mount the seat
That would be about problem number seven or maybe nine, number one folly is: None of these chop shops appear to know what a frame jig is for or how to use one. If you're going to cut, build and weld on a motorcycle frame you start with a jig to position everything in place accurately during a welding process, they don't build real motorcycle frames freehand. Folly #2: they are making the marginal strength frame significantly weaker then the original by grinding the sub-frame section from a frame that was never built with a removable sub-frame. Folly #3: they are increasing the destructive loads imposed on what's left of that hacked frame by mounting bigger, heavier tires, wheels and brakes on it, clearly indicating the chopper builder has no clue how a performance motorcycle operates or where a motorcycle frame typically cracks and breaks.
