All balls 1987 hurricane steering neck bearings and races

Speed never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary, that's what gets you.

A wet clutch is what you get after going 100 mph and a car pulls out in front of you. Sometimes you get a brown clutch.

Front end removed. I pulled the wheel then handlebars and forks, then triple tree. I highly recommend just pulling the top nut off of the top triple amd sliding the whole assembly out at once, saves a lot of time and is much easier

So i put the f3 front end on to test fit and ran across my first problem. The steering stop for the stock front end is too wide for the steering stops on the f3 front end. I have all of an inch of turing radius.

Had to cut off the old steering stop so i was able to turn the bars but now i need to figure out where to put the new steering stop. If i want to put it back in the middle or not. F2s and F3s have the steering stops behind the forks so im not sure if i want to do that or not

Heres a peek of what the bike looks with most of the front end on. More of just a mockup and to test for fitment for the new steering stops

So finally got the new steering stop welded on. Just got some square steel and used that. Painted it and it looks awesome and works great.

Put the whole front end together today. Put on the brakes, ran the new lines, measured out the clipons, put on all the controls
