    Niiiiiiiiccccccceeee.

    One thing, the resevoir caps. A bit of a faux pas my friend. Get 'em sorted.

    Other than that, smashing effort.
    Some people will tell you that slow is good Ė but Iím here to tell you that fast is better. Iíve always believed this, in spite of the trouble itís caused me. Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube. That is why God made fast motorcycles, Bubba.

    The following are good lengths, all standard 10mm banjos. This also assumes you want a 2 line front brake kit for which you will need a double banjo bolt. lengths are eye to eye.


    brakes:
    830mm straight banjo to 90 degree banjo with rubber grommet on line for lockup
    870mm straight banjo to 90 degree banjo with rubber grommet on line for lockup

    clutch
    1060mm straight banjo to 90 degree banjo

    This is exactly what I have had made up for my 2001 Mille R with Brembo 4-pad non-radial brakes.

    I'd like to make my Tuono look like a Mille, If anyone wants to do the conversion, we can swap parts.

    The RSV has two plastic rubberised "pods" on the front wiring loom that protects connectors from the weather. Theses sit outside of the faring on the RSV either side of the clocks. Where do these go in the Tuono. Ive tried puting them inside the faring but then the faring wont fit. There dosent seem to be enough space inside due to the headlight shroud. What am I missing here?

    Thanks

    Remove them. They are not present on 'genuine' Tuonos.

    I am thinking of simply cutting the front fairing enough for bars to clear on the Mille. Has anyone tried that?Click image for larger version.
