    It's a road bike but I do track it occasionally. You need nc35 yokes for the Daytona forks. I've got a spare set of forks so did think about putting them in, but in the end I just went with some ktech internals for the stock forks. Handles beautifully.

  2. I didn't know that as I chat a lot with Rick Oliver and he sent me a photo of his C30 with the 675 fork mod.
    I bought some spacer from him last year as I was to fit 675 forks on mine but it wouldn't be allowed in the classic races here if I did.
    So, I got them serviced at MCT with race internals.. Also invested in a custom Nitron shock... lovely bikes :)
    PS: I had a QS fitted last year... the sound is brilliant.

    Yeah, I got a Nitron R3. Seems to work well enough for me. The nc30 lower yoke is only41mm. The tona forks are much fatter so you need the nc35 lower (or a bespoke made one/tyga etc) plus you need radial calipers. Seemed like too much effort vs a well sorted oem set up.

  4. I know what you mean, this was the very first NC35 I bought many years ago with a CBRRR5 front end, the stopping power is amazing on such a light bike.
    This is currently sitting on a pallet minus its wheels and will be picked from as and when parts are needed.
    What does your 30 look like?

  7. That looks immaculate, don't remember seeing that colour scheme before, is it rare?

    It's a 1989 'type 2' scheme also known as the Seed scheme (after the racing team of the same name) it's fairly rare- but then, NCs are getting rarer all the time I guess.

    Fitted my Racetorx gear shaft support.

    Fitment is ace and is a nice trick little piece.

    Feels super crisp.

    Mines a bit of a different set up so my wire only comes out where you can see it. Already at the end of the rod. I have it cable tied to the bracket shown so I know it doesn’t snag or slop about. Gives me piece of mind.

    Finally fitted a galespeed master cylinder, only been sat in its box since January :confused: along with new h type hel lines as I start to tidy up round the headstock.
    Don’t know if there will be any noticeable improvement over the brembo I’d used previously but material specs, overall machining and finish are extremely impressive in comparison
