That new front end will look so nice on the RVF. Can't wait to hear what the big bore motor is like to ride, that thing will fly!!

Mainly gathering parts for the build. I've ordered the Carrillo rods from Mike, and should be here this month. Still need to get some crank/rod bearings, piston rings and modified head gaskets before I can start assembling the engine.

More things gathered:
NC21 sprocket cover
NC21 clutch slave cylinder (May upgrade it in the future)
NC21 push rod
RC19S clutch master cylinder
CBR600RR left hand switch-block
CBR1000RR right hand switch-block
RVF400 pillion pegs, to replace the VFR400 ones
VFR400 shock reservoir bracket
Full engine rebuild set
EBC heavy duty clutch
Engine casings bead-blasted

Looks like you've been spending a lot of time collecting bits! Have you had the cylinders bored out yet?

What did you end up doing with the GP-T kit? Do you know if the fitment is the same (or similar) for a VFR400?

They do a GPT kit for the VFR. TYGA Make them. The tail is not a GPT kit piece tho.
