SU carb

Today I started collecting parts for the build.

SU 1 1/4" H2 rebuilt

this mounts at an angle which hopefully will pair up with the angle of the charger.

Need to think about pipe work and mounting the blower.

For this I have made some mounting templates out of card and when I get the tracker MOT'd (as its due) and the FZ600 back up and running, I'll take the bike off the road.

supercharging the XS

this arrived today
Its an Aisin AMR300 Supercharger which I'm fitting to the tracker.

Going to take all year to do, but I think it will be awesome

XJR1300 conrods, weld up the oil hole for the starter chain and fit a 4 rib serpentine pulley in place of the original sprocket.

need to work out the ratio (leaning on 1:1)
Its a suck through system so can't have an intercooler, pop off valve needed for backfires

there's one fitted to an SR500 for inspiration
