The helmet from my Nexx sponsorship arrived the other day. As advertised, it fits well, appears to be pretty quiet, and is incredibly light. Looks pretty sharp as well! I was able to get 2 other shields, a clear and a light smoke one as well.
ECE 22-05 and Dot approved.
Tri-composite shell -- a mix of fibreglass, kevlar, and carbon fibre.
Stopped by CycleBoyz to pick up the R6 rad. Looks good. Did a pressure check in the tub (yes I cleaned it afterwards) and no leaks, based on as much pressure I could load the rad with after plugging the spigots.
Mig-welded, I think. This spigot is the lower on on the RHS as you sit on the bike. A bit more filler rod was required, as a 3/4" outlet was going into a whole where a 1" used to be.
Once mounted, this will make sense -- I had to "hook" the coolant flow around one of the frame tubes. You can see where the old spigot used to live. Once it dries out, I will get it painted with some radiator paint I had left over from the supermono project.
In engine news, Scotty from Transcanada had the correct flywheel puller I needed to finish disassembling the engine. He lent it to me for the weekend, and the engine is now apart, in a few boxes. Time to start saving my pennies for the soup-up work!
