I will be using a 180-200mm rear tire on a 5.5 inch HD wheel with chain drive from the left side.

A 21 inch wheel on the front but not sure of the width yet. Probably 90/90-21.
I think that is a 21/4-2-1/2 inch wide rim? (Edit: 2.15 wide rim)

Today I went for a trial fit of the transfer gearbox to the engine
and found out I am missing 4 more special bolts. GRRRRrrrrr.

But at least I will have all of the correct factory parts when complete.

BTW that special nut required that I ordered arrived today and it
was nothing like I thought it would be.

The Special Nut looked like a valve stem cap that was chrome. It was metal and
had a female hex hole in one end and the inside was threaded.
The outside had seriations to grip it with.
I am trying figure out why Yamaha would do that.

"Working on mysteries without any clues"

Today I found the vendor to order my chain sprocket for the Road Star engine.
It is Sprocket Specialists.
They have a Yamaha spline sprocket 19 teeth (556 Sprocket Specialist number), countershaft sprocket for the R1
It will fit my application. That is the largest one they have so it will make the rear sprocket about 42 teeth.
Another problem solved.

This is a sloppy Photoshop sketch of where I am going with this.

Oh, I forgot that it will have springer front forks. Oops, back to Photo Shop.


EDIT: August 18th 2014.
I may be going a different direction now with the look.

No raked trees.
Usually raked trees are used with telescopic forks.

I will be using springer forks and the rockers can be modified if needed.
I have had 42 rake with springers on other bikes and needed no alterations.

OK...I made that gas tank a little smaller. Smaller at the rear also.
EDIT on that gas tank.

I mounted the rear tire onto the rear wheel today. 180 x 5.5 x 18 spoke wheel.
I was able to do it by myself this time since it was only a 180 tire.
I did not have to take it to a car tire shop that had the huge compressors.

I needed a bracket that connects the transfer gearbox to the engine.
I was able to buy one on Ebay.

It came this way. yes

This is after a 90% clean up .
I will need to remove the piece marked in red to make way for the chain.
Then see where the chain will be located.

This the modification to the "stay' plate that holds the gearbox onto the engine.


This will allow for the chain to clear the case.
The steel pins that held the plastic rollers for the belt have also been removed.
I think I will paint this plate black so that the oil tank looks like a separate part.

Next step is getting the countershaft sprocket.
I got it at Sprocket Specialists.

18T and I will use a 41 tooth for the rear.
That will give me 2.27:1 Ratio.

The almighty sprocket! #556 is Sprocket Specialists part number. #530 Chain.

Conical spring locking washer known as a "Belleville" locking washer, after the inventor.

The nut will fit.
