Work on the forks

Some pics taken while performing some work on the Showa forks in an attempt to improve the Speed Triple's front end.

Tweaked R1100S

Now this is one seriously tweaked R1100S (from Japan) and one that actually gets raced given the transponder on the forks.

From the picture, this advanced track version comes with Öhlins shocks (at least at the front), Brembo Oro calipers, side exhaust (though keeping the stock down pipes), tasty rearsets and a total loss system as the generator and poly-V belt are missing.
