Hi being a biker all my adult life an owning a suzuki gsx 650 f. Could not resist this one. However this one will be a 50 th birthday present for a very close friend. Doing the busa for me . But decided to do diary on this one. I have done first 2 packs. And come in at pack 3. First impressions the parts are of superb quality. And all fit well . Only thing is allen key that came with pack 3 was to small, an one the screws was bad on key not problem as have many allen keys could file down to fit it. Mudguard fiddly to get first 4 screws on the inside. But not a problem. I did coat front tyre in silicone oil to kill the grey moulding powder on it . Look forward to me next pack. That a 1/12 scale bike in pic in pic of finished stage. Just to show this gonna be a big one cheers mick BigGrin BigGrin

Hi well pack 5 arrived so set to it .as normal parts superb quality. And went together well .had one issue with exhaust from previous pack, which did not show till fitting down pipe to silencer.which was the tapped hole for the downpipe was to large in casting , which gave me very loose thread .unfortunately this as I expected did strip when attaching the down pipe.I had to redrill it an tap it m3.then use screw from spares box. (Good old spares box ) this meant had to file hole bigger in downpipe.anyway not in place that shows , as is covered by other half of silencer. So sorted .oh second silencer not give me any trouble glad to say.enjoying this build very much.cheers and happy moddelling. Mick BigGrin BigGrin

Looking very nice! I'm considering this one myself as it just showed up in the US. I'm a bit concerned though with the number of things you've had to sort out.

Keep up the great work, I'll be watching closely as I decide if this is for me or not :)

Hi impatience I'd not be concerned at all.the Lil bits me done really are nothing.as regard the exhaust screw, think I was just unlucky, as nobody else has had this problem.the holes are lot easier to do with tap than screw all I would say.it M2.3mm make sure you get bottoming tap to get the holes deep enough.in fact I think this such great kit have subscribed to second one.as one is a gift.an one for me.cheers and happy moddelling mick.
