Fitting the Rad

..had a second look at the radiator which arrived from Tokyo.
It's obviously set up for a YZF and not an OW, so it's gonna require some work to make it fit. Initially I thought about getting some new brackets welded on top of the rad, but maybe leave the original in place and use spacers and brackets.Just gotta make sure they hold the rad once its full as I can imagine it will weigh a bit!

Check this Ow01 rebuild out

Looking around the web I came across some great photographs from the workshops of Peter Day, the gandalf of Yamaha Ow01s! If you need to know anything or are looking for parts then Peter is the guy you want to ask.

Obviously my rebuild is much more in the basement bargain dept. than the one pictured. I'm also keeping mine a lot more to it's '89 issue components as opposed to moving up to Öhlins upfront.
Basically my budget isn't on the same level.

But it's great that owners put up these albums for the rest of us to admire!
