The steering damper is a daytona brand . i am not sure if they are still available. I bought it in 1986.

Thanks for all the positive comments guys it has been a bit of a long road.
The fitting of the new carbs and jetting was a bit of a mission.
I was pretty happy when dudley first finished the fitting of the carbs and she had around 95 hp,
But being the perfectionist he is he made a fuel rail and did a bit more fiddling with the air filters and a few more jetting changes and now she is close to 100 hp f##king awesome.

I have to thank Dudleys performance at Wyong NSW the guy is a 2 stroke guru and one hell of a nice guy.

Hi,

That looks fantastic !!! - wonderful kit and very nicely combined with the original style.

I'm currently building a project that uses a R6 swingarm like yours. Can you tell me what front sprocket I'll need for chain alignment please - or will I need to get a custom one made ?

Cheers
Paul
