Hmmm, that's a different look. I do know that Erion made a few different bikes that weren't equal to eachother. Their A bike wasn't their B bike if you know what I mean. I'm curious to see what the deal is with the clutch cover in your first picture. Just extra crash protection, or a hydraulic conversion?

There are a number of reasons why the added they bracing though. Anything from extra rigidity to heavily modifying the engine case to accept a cassette type tranny maybe - I have no idea.

But we do have at least one member who has seen their A bike in person. Maybe he'll chime in.

What are you and your friends trying to accomplish by modifying your frame?

Have you had a problem with the bike cornering?

There are not very many people on the planet that frame flex on a 954 would affect their riding. I'm impressed if you're one of them!

On the Bruce bike, they just welded a piece of aluminum from the motor stay to the frame. It might stiffen things up, but it could be that a race team just wanted the bike to not be stressed member for ease of breaking things down, swapping parts, etc.

The big piece of billet on that Erion bike is also bolted on, which doesn't fix all of the flex issues. It probably doesn't hurt, but if you're bolting pieces together, its still going to flex.

Furthermore, I'm not sure that area is the weak spot on the frame. And don't forget that if you're riding on the street, you'll want that flex.

Its not a stupid idea, there's nothing wrong with wanting your own custom bike. There is a lot of other stuff going on with those bikes that I'd like to know about.
