Thread contains a yellow storm

Post by fabiostar » Sun Jan 10, 2016 5:05 pm

just a warning lads.

been out tinkering the last few weeks and had the old lady out for a run today with the latest few wee mods..

some nice new blade calipers.and matching master,(cheers pinapple) along with freshly painted fork bottoms.

Image



next on the not needed list was a fork brace. a slightly modded CB1300 one fitted the bill.

Image

Image


new bars to try a change from the top yoke conversion. Got a set of VFR800 bars along with preload adjusters .

Image


and i had to sort that rock hard seat so replaced some of the sponge and fought with a leather seat cover for two days but what a difference to my rear end :eek2


Image

Image


also been hunting for a while for a belly pan (cheers glsr) so on it went


Image

Image

still to do. mccts and a powder coated subframe to tidy up the back end a bit , but for now, im gona have a beer.

so back in the cave for a while

Image


:beer: :beer:

sorry to say, but posted on picture bellow is something I would worry about. I don´t think it will work properly with this gap. The worst scenario is that it will affect slide of inner tubes, as there can be unwanted pressure on forks causing them to distort. Maybe put some spacer between.
