Honestly, too much. Min thickness is 4mm and I'm at 3.8. For a light weight bike that doesn't move real fast I'm not too worried about it for now. What do you reckon it's prone to do being too thin? Warp?Split?

I'd have just left it mostly clean... lol

I've seen pictures of them split, don't know what it took to do.

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

Probably a gamble of what may happen, really.

Yeah, I just took the high spots down and didn't shave any extra. Mainly the OD where the pad never wears and surfaced with a scotch brite thing on drill ( don't remember what they are called). Flattened the pads with a file, but they are rotten. .2mm is only 7 thou in normal measurements, so I'm not losing any sleep for now.

So, I've been riding this all weekend. It's better than my expectations. First gear easily chugs down to nothing and the gearbox is super W I D E. I don't even shift in to 5th til around 50mph. Cruising at 65 is effortless and smooth. It pulls through the gears easily with lots of tq and a huge flywheel. Handing at speed on the road is neutral and dead stable. Handling at speed on gravel/dirt it predictable , but if you push harder you can feel the rear getting light. When it gets to that point an extra whiff of throttle sets the bike in to a calm, controllable drift. It's great. The shocks like they could use a bit more damping on road, but that are push and comfy over washboards.

That rear disc is already warping, the headlight needs attention and the seat foam could be firmer (or 40 years fresher?), but pretty much no complaints here! It's a super cheap, super simple, super fun bike. I think I'm about $800 all in and wouldn't change a thing. The package just works. I finally have a bike light and nimble enough to tackle any trail I want, but it's also smooth enough to run at 65mph without breathing hard or wearing me out. This is a fabulous engine for dual sporting. Everything Honda built afterwards had serious limitations. I don't get it!

Oh well, hope you all are having a good time this weekend. Ride safe out there.

Well, tried to attach a pic but it won't work, so enjoy a boring wall of text instead

I mentioned it elsewhere, but I hit a deer on this bike last Friday evening. I knew I tore the visors off my helmet, but sheet closer inspection the EPS was cracked and heavily compressed. I apparently smacked my noodle pretty hard, but no concussion or anything. The helmet did it's job well.

I do however have two bone bruises on my right knee. I don't know when I'll be able to ride again. I can't bend my knee far enough to get on the FZ07 and I can't kick start either of the Honda's. This sucks

Please, always wear your armor, guys!

That's realy sucks. I had broke my clavicle two years ago, the first day I got back to work after my vacations. I didn't wearing a motorcycle jacket. Just jean pants, a t-shirt and my helmet. We have to ride with armour at any season.

I hope you get well soon shiny!

Deer suck. Glad it wasn't worse and that the helmet did it's job.

Thanks Beez, it's just part of the game, I reckon.

And Grandpa is doing well. I hope I still move around as good as he did when I'm in my 80's.

Glad to hear you are ok Eric, and that your noggin broke your fall, you hard-headed bugger. Hope that knee sorts itself out without complications.

How'd the bike fair?
