on the suspension bolts, is that just a center in the threaded end or are they drilled most of the way through?

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.

Some of you guys never miss a thing.

Machinist had to put a divot in the threaded end, I guess, to hold it properly in the lathe for cutting the threads, etc.

Very happy Bill called me and asked if a divot is okay.

Fuck no, it's not okay. None of my other hardware has that. I told Bill to drill it out. I do have plenty of drilled/lightened bolts.

Because I'm no engineer, I don't know how much I can drill out of the suspension bolts.

On these bolts, the hole doesn't go very far past the threads. Not fully drilled, for safety.

It might just be the photo but the second titanium piece looks like it’s a different shape?

Yes, in order to support the end of the part when threading, you have to use a live center. It goes into an angled hole in the end... but the walls on the hole there appear straight so I was thinking it might go (almost) all the way through to save weight.

If you were opposed to having a hole at all in the end, he would've had to make the parts longer and then cut off the depth of the hole.

Was this CNC or manual? I don't see a thread relief groove, which makes me think CNC.

Since I posted this pic of the new kill switch, I've been trying to figure it out.



Was confused by this info in the service manual:



Looks like I need a normally closed kill switch. The switch I have, and all the ones I see like it are normally open. The normally closed kill switches I see are all larger teathered switches.

Kept searching, and found this info from a vendor. Looks like I'm good to go because I'm using a Zeeltronic CDI.

"If you want a kill switch you will connect the black/white wire on the PCDI-10VT to a normally open switch with the other side of the switch connected to ground."

Now, I think maybe I don't need the Normally Closed Relay. Not sure. I did find it, and the matching wiring plug on Ebay for less than $10usd.

Fuck me, almost 3 am. Took 2 pain pills and a sleeping pill. Still in too much pain to sleep.

Speaking of pain, can you guess what happened with my latest parts order?

Of course it got fucked up! Ordered and paid for 2 pieces. Invoice says 2 pieces. Received only one piece in the box. Fuck, fuck and double-fuck.

Ever see one of these? I've never noticed one on any bike I've seen.



Hopefully, I'll be getting another one soon.

Should be cool if they work well.

Pressure switch.

Seen lots of pressure switches, but not like this one.

Been eyeballing them for a while, just needed a place to try them out.

Let me help you find the hole.
