Back home for 2 days.
Yesterday I went to my dads and changed the battery for a motorbatt one. Bike now won't start due to the plugs fouling up due to the bike not been run properly.

So today I managed to get 3 hours while I've been at home to work on a few odd bits. Spent all my time on the swingarm hub.
A massive circlip was holding everything tight, managed to remove that with the new pliers, I managed to prize everything else part using the hammer as it was pretty seized up. Reassembled it with lm2 grease for now, just need to get the bearings ordered for the rear hub once I next get paid. Then the trumpet rear axle will fit.



I've sadly also come to the conclusion that I won't be getting this bike finished in time for the build off. As it'll be hard to explain to someone else (my mum) to talk to a machine shop about what work I need doing. I hope to get home soon between jobs to get it all sorted out as then things will quickly come together I hope.

Small ish update, rebuilt the rear hub and got the axle now compatible with the hub, thanks to Cookie and his thread for the info on what bearing I needed. I've since acquired a rear caliper that needs to be ultrasonically cleaned, stirpped, painted and rebuilt (got the seals at least). Replaced the battery with a motobatt as it's the only battery I can find that isn't a maintenance one. Got the correct spacers for the front calipers. Need to replace the spark plugs as they fowled up.



Dropped off the stem and yokes at my local machine shop this morning and was quoted 50, I was expecting to pay about 45 so I'm fairly pleased. So they should be done in a few days.... in which I'll be working away again. dam.



Payday next week so I'll be ordering the fully adjustable clip ons, some bolts to hold on the front mudguard and a few other bits to atleast get the front end sorted out. I know I won't get this finished by the end of the build off but damm once I've got the machine work done things will progress quickly.

Well with the build off over can I request this to be moved to the member project's section of the site.

Other updates, after I dropped off the yokes with an estimated turn around time of 3 days... 5 weeks later they're still sat in the office so I found another local machine shop and took them there, I've taken the swingarm there.

The guy at the machine shop I'm now using has 3 custom built bikes which are beautiful. They have quoted me much better for the work than the other place too

The clipons I ordered have gotten lost so they're reshipping those.

Oh and I finally got the bike home.

Moved the bike into the garden not sure how that happened as I'm under mothers ruling not to ride/push/move any of my bikes..
But what she doesn't know can't harm her


Messed about and fitted the interceptor rep parts


Damm I'm in love already

Test fitted the fiberglass panels that are getting painted for fitment - need to cut out the hold for the rear light.

Managed to trace, mask and transfer the cutout I need for the rear light on the fiberglass rear cowling... it's surprisingly hard doing it one handed but I managed to get it within 1mm of difference. The fiberglass is no where near to the oem panel either so I'm pleased.

Well got my pot removed today, so dropped off the tank, sidepanels, rear cowl, rear subframe and rear caliper dropped off at the paint shop.

I've been rethinking about the rear shock setup, since the dogbone triangles stuff not making sense in my head I came across @370steve's hornet thread where he got a bracket welded to the swingarm and running a conventional suspension setup without honda's "pro arm" BS... definitely food for thought
