    Picked up some new hardware to install the cam end caps, rearsets, and coils.

    Rebuilt the forks, ran the wiring harness

    One fork tube was gouged pretty bad, filled with JB weld and sanded. Had to replace lower bushing also. We'll see how that holds up.

    Wiring is not my strongpoint but trying my best to make it clean...

    Takes a lot of patience!!

    threw on the body for fun. Have some NOS side covers for it too.

    So what's the skinny on running a gsxr 1100 rear wheel with the 1100e swinger as far as brakes? I see guys running an underslung rear caliper? Is this necessary? Or is that for bandit swingers? What's needed for the stock swinger/caliper setup?

    Directions use to be in Katman's Major 1100 Kat Rebuild thread circa 2004 but his post no longer support pictures or the drawings. His solution for getting the rear brake pedal to operate the master cylinder in tight confines might not be applicable to your set up with your rear sets. He basically modified the brake lever pivot rod between the swinger and the frame so it was offset.

    Rear sets from other bikes like the ZX12 can be swapped along with their integral master cylinder. I followed his lead and it was very tight still and I eventually moved on to his bandit arm solution.

    Thanks isleoman.

    You happen to know if the 1100e caliper and mount works with the gsxr wheel/rotor?

    My wheels are at the powdercoater otherwise I'd look myself. Trying to prepare. For some reason I thought the caiiper didn't line up well.

    Your bike is is a big inspiration for me.
