I mean the gold parts

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.

Anodized aluminum. Magnesium is also silver in raw form, but rarely seen that way because it needs to be treated asap to prevent corrosion.

I often see a similar color finish applied to magnesium for exactly that reason

given the trick materials involved on this bike, I figured he might have gone with mag axle blocks to save a few grams

That would be cool.
Now trying to keep cost down and finish soon.
The road closed. Made a 180 degree turn and hitting the throttle.

Was hoping to ship these to Sebspeed, yesterday.

Took me all day to clean off the polishing compound.

Will ship Monday.

The triangle cutout in the chain adjuster under the triangle cutout in the axle block is pure custom magic.

Very much appreciate the PMs and emails offering help with this project.

SEBSPEED took the time to turn my ideas into CAD drawings, so the custom swingarm is his project. I spoke with him on the phone less than 2 weeks ago, and we should see some progress soon.

I'll keep at it. Trying out some discontinued levers from Gilles Tooling. Very hard to get, and not even sure I like them. Just trying to find a few bobbles that will go beyond what's seen on other RZ500s.
