Tommy Thöring has a thing for superchargers, nitrous oxide and insane speeds; but this time he was building something tame for the streets that he could enjoy out in the Swiss alps.
It all started with a Kawasaki W650, a first time for him. He wanted to build a lightweight tracker for himself. To him it was perfect; the look, size and character fit him perfectly. The bike was already very lightweight but he wanted to take it further. It took three-years of slow evolution and building to create this bike. It was constantly improved over the years to create a perfectly lightweight package able to perform in any terrain. First he changed the rims, exhaust and the fenders. After using them for a while, he changed the exhaust again and updated the seat. The stock tank was also replaced with a smaller Kawasaki Z200 one.
The No Fat uses CNC machined triples with LSL bars, a Magura HC1 brake cylinder and a Suzuki DRZ400 clutch lever. A minimal Motogadget Mini speedometer is installed instead of the old bulky one. The front forks are stock but use new Wilbers springs. A matching pair of Wilbers shocks is also installed in the back. The front hub is also stock but uses 2.5 x 8" rims with tubeless Pirelli KT60 tyre.
The lights and electronic bits have been replaced with smaller ones; a typical Japanese headlight is installed in the front and the rear indicators are positioned behind the shocks. The stop light is also integrated into the frame. To up the power, the engine received ported heads that boosted its capacity up to 740cc that spits out 65 brutal horses. New K&N filters and a pro carb re-jetting was done to match the boost in power. An in-house 2 in 1 exhaust system is installed to unleash the roar and also help with power delivery.
