Have you considered a spacer to move the disks away from the wheel

I did consider it - it's something that I've done on my cb500 (23,000miles done so far since 1st jan 2017) when I did the rear wheel swap as the disc needed moving out by a few mm to clear the calliper. It's something I'd risk on the rear (I never use the rear at all, it's gone rusty for perspective) but never something that I would want to do on the front even though I know it's safe.

Dammit saw you had commented and though you was going to suggest guidance.

It's an AGS PCR-1 (air rifle), with a silencer (can't remember the brand) and a nikko stirling 4x32 scope. It's on the legal limit of power without needing a firearms licence (12ft.lb) though I don't need anything bigger as it's only pigeons and rats which I shoot.
My dad does a lot of shooting so he's got a few rifles and a couple of shotguns, oh and about 3/4 air rifles.

You look like you've got everything under control for now. Curious to see how you work around the larger OD CBR stem.

I've taken the easy route and getting the vfr stem pressed out... now I think about it.. *goes away and measures*

I'll be needing a shim for the rc24 stem (30.5)into the cbr yokes (35mm) damm it.
Sometimes I wish I had a lathe..

Top yoke stem hole 33mm wide, 16mm depth through yoke

Bottom yoke 35.25 wide?? Flange depth 6.5mm, flange dia37.25, total depth through yoke including flange 35mm

I'll get the rc24 dimensions tomorrow as it's 6c/42f outside and a 8mph wind.

Really it's with the swingarm that I've got no idea with, get the shock aligned up properly first and then work out everything else from there or is the shock ok to be off center in the swingarm but corrected with spacers?

Shock can be off center.

Sorry but it was easy to tell you got an oddball triple, RC45/RC51 SP2 and new CBR1k only ones to use that larger bearing

Managed to work out that I need a 30x35x30 bottom bushing for the cbr yoke to accept the vfr steam.

Top yoke is a bit different so I'll have to get something custom made for it. Is there anyone in the uk who does machining, don't want to keep bugging Yantosh for spacers when he's also got his own build to do.

Not much of an update but still an update nevertheless.

Managed to find a set of interceptor decals for 185 usd and they would even post it to the uk. Much less than the 300 usd website than I found for the exact same kit. So that's a nice little saving once I've got the money for it.
I'll post the link here for my own reference as I have a habit of losing website links. **website link**

I sent at email off to the local paint shop so I'll wait back from them with a quote. I've got no idea what to expect price wise.

I heard back from the guy who's making the fiberglass rear cowling and side panels yesterday. They've been made and will be getting posted after I've paid in full for them, hopefully sometime next week or so.

Been reading into and trying to understand how the rear suspension linkage is going to happen thanks to honda's "pro-arm linkage", as well as the dilemma of Nitron or Ohlins for the rear shock, but that's quite a way off yet.
