    Re: Bad decisions were made today..

    Anyone in the R7 community possibly volunteer to have their air box 3D scanned so it could be printed? Seems like this could be a good opportunity, you’d own the model to have them reproduced for others as well.

    It’s worth a shot to ask at least, but I’m finding knowone will touch certain parts on their bikes with it being so rare. There’s also risk to whoever does it, to damage certain parts while doing so, parts that they also can no longer get.

    I think in the end, it’ll be less risky, and probably quicker to have one custom made.

    If you find someone willing my guy in CA can laser scan and get a 3D print friendly drawing done for you.

    Yeah, that’s what I was getting at. The scanning process is no-touch. Risk would be in deinstall/reinstall and shipping.

    Re: Bad decisions were made today..

    Anyone know where I can buy a front axle? I see model specific axles, but no specs listed. I pretty much need the same axle as the R7 has now, but the end with the hex head needs to be 32mm and not 30mm like the stock one

    Re: Bad decisions were made today..

    Itís been a while since the last update, and progress has been slow, still no luck on an air box.
    The front end is almost all sorted out. A friend of mine made the axle nut/spacer I was missing, and machined the spacers I had to center the front wheel in the forks. I have to pick up the spacers and brake rotors tomorrow from his shop.
    I also bought a carbon front fender for an Aprilia RSV4 factory, itís a perfect fit, I just added the original R7 Yamaha decals. Still hopeful Iíll find the original fork bottoms, and the front fender at some point. I was able to find the original front brake calipers, I bought them just to have originals.

    Re: Bad decisions were made today..

    Picked up the brake rotors and front spacers this afternoon, and just put the front end back together. Itís starting to look like a complete bike. Iím down to needing 3 parts (and some minor odds and ends) to having a complete bike to the point Iím happy and would call it done. Front brake lines, original chain guard, and the air box.

    That looks incredible. There's probably seven people in this world that would know you're missing some OEM parts.

    Thanks, pleased with it so far. Iím more concerned with having the original parts for appraised value so I can get a more accurate insurance value, and also for possible future resale value.

    I did, and resale in this case is probably 20 years from now.

    The maroon 07 R1, I bought just to flip it. I bought it without a title, but it had a prior registration. Used the Vermont loophole to plate it, removed all the squid add ons, and sold it. Oddly, the guy that bought it, was from Vt. That was one of the cleanest used bikes I think Iíve come across. The Rossi R1, is likely a flip bike as well in a year or 2

    Re: Bad decisions were made today..

    Latest score, a set of original R7 forks. The timing was clearly off, as had these been available sooner, I wouldnít have spent the time and effort machining axle spacers and locking nuts. I likely wonít mount these to the bike, Iíll just add them to the crate of spare original parts. I do like the radial brake set up and carbon fender thatís on the bike now, just want the option to be original. The only 2 parts missing to make the front end of the bike 100% original at this point is an OE front fender, and the OE front brake lines.
    Still nothing on the airbox, but hopefully something comes available over the winter.

    I wouldn't think twice about the brake lines. I don't think anyone looking to buy the bike would have a concern about replacement brake lines.
