I'd say there are basically 3 ways to sort the clearance, new dash /clocks, which for me was to expensive/ complicated,  secondly and easiest is to contact redratbike for some of his re-engineered lock stops these are simply a direct replacements for the OE ones that limit the steering lock and gives the required clearance, I didn't want to loose the lock so I found  a 3rd option, and decided to move a the dash a little you don't need much something like 25mm iirc, I made some alloy brackets and trimmed away some of the mount frame to allow the dash to move forward enough for the m/c to clear .I'll post a pic when I get home.

This is a neat solution, swap over the reservoirs for the hydraulics.

That does look neat I like the carbon support bracket however it's not the reservoir that causes the problem, the RCS cyl is a different shape to OE and it's the body of the M/C that hits the clocks on full lock, I went for repositioning the clocks a little bit and as said previously the other option is to limit the steering lock.

not done much since Xmas really repaired the damaged akra can today, a bit of colour sanding now waiting for some Italian green paint I've ordered to arrive so I can add some stripes to give that tricolour effect then it will be clear coated and stickered up.  I haven't made a made a decision re the wheels really I think they would look best  gloss black but then if I wanted to return it to stock is have to repaint them back to OZ blue, so I'm tempted to leave as is for now see how it looks, although I may end up doing them anyway, either way I'll wait till the new tyres go on.
More pics soon πŸ‘

As with most things these days they are from China via eBay, they have Dip/high beam function and take various bulbs (I'm hoping to use a H1 fiment LED ), cost me about a tenner delivered ( no idea how they do them for the money), search projector lens in car parts on eBay.

small update, paint is almost done just needs flatting back and clear coat but the wind as battered my makeshift spray booth so a bit of repair work needed here before the final coats of clear,
Next jobs on my 'to do' list are wire in the lights,wrap the exhaust, replace the swing arm bearings, strip check re grease the lower linkage etc, 16t sprocket, check the coolant system (I found a small amount of coolant in the belly pan so it looks like I've a slight leak/weep from somewhere), then basic stuff like tyres, brakes (new pads, fluid etc) suspension. more pics this weekend,

I made them and no I won't be making any to sell.

They are different reservoirs, so therefore fit in there neatly.

i'll go take some more pics, and no can't make my mind up re wheels, I think they would look best black but if I decide to put the OE bodywork back on at some point then I'd need to do them blue again and also do I paint them or have them plastic coasted? also what is the finish on OZ wheels ? are they painted or some other coating the blue finish looks anodised.
I have new tyres ready to go on so I'll make a decision soon.

a few more pics, paint nearly done just need to wet sand to correct any orange peel and other surface imperfections then compound to give it a nice shine.

I've cut some Aprilia Racing stickers for the side panels and tank, these have been clear coated for protection any other graphics wont be clear coated so I can chop and change them as required.

Bike is in bits now and I'm working through the service stuff, oil is out,

rear suspension is off 'dog bone' beaings are all re-greased ready for reassembly

next job is the remove the swingarm but I don't seem to have a 26mm socket for and swingarm nut, I've got the castle nut off but can't get the 26mm nut off, I have a 26mm socket on order so as soon as that arrives I'll whip the swinger off check bearings replacing if necessary.

another little job I've done is to replace the PPC one way valve with a pair of one way valves T'd into the original pipes, I had a spare vac source on the 57mm TBs so I thought rather than cap it I'd put it to use, not sure if it will have any effect on the PPC but i don't think it could do any harm.

I don't understand why you would change from the fastest colour to one that is at least 10 mph slower.....

Great build
