Installed a brushless industrial fan on each radiator, with a switch on the dash. Works nicely, pulls allot of air through the radiator.
I know where u can get a h4 hid kit for R850, they're nice and small..fits easily in the drz, just pm me and i'll tell u

When i want to take of the front wheel, i undo the nut...but then the shaft is still stuck, do i need to undo the otherside aswell? It uses a beeg allen key type thing...my bike didnt come with a toolkit..and i dont think such a big alen key exsists?

Undo the pinch nuts. 2 either side of the wheel.

They clamp the axle down.

Nee, hulle kyk af. Deel van die fork bottom. 2 Boute elke kant, weerskante van die as... Hulle knyp basies die as vas.

I know the older gsxr rims work, there were a few other too. a set of motard wheels was on gumtree recently.

I know of the following rims which have been used before:

Suz GS 500
Suz Bandit 400/600
Suz GSXR 400
Suz RGV 250
Honda CBR 600 F

Requires quite a bit of machining work and customizing though.

Craigs in Maitland might have some 2nd hand rims available...

I read that the rubber type fork boots are not a good idea, they keep in moisture etc.

Sidetrack, what type of fork guards did u have?
