Drilled an tapped the holes for the oil lines



i would have tapped the hole for the oil restricter too..... but its fallen into a void and disappeared , bastard thing
i,m sure I ordered an SV clutch pushrod seal too.... MIA... and a few other bits, must be a missing box

tied the lines on to stop them fucking off

it would appear that I am in fact a moron, I do wish I had realised this fact before spending too much money on powdercoat

everything was great, then i noticed a lack of right hand lock .... Doh

it would appear the brace on the steering damper mount, that doesn,t restrict the steering does in fact restrict the steering....... oops





it would appear tomorrow will start with me grinding through said powder

so I ground away a chunk of the tube to give more steering lock, convinced myself it looked fine and eventually ended up inside watching WSB.

All the while my inner chimp is sat looking looking at me like I took a shit in the corner of his cage "not only did you make a howling cunt of it.... you are now willing to compound the cuntery by leaving it like that ? ..... you need to give your self a good talking to"

to be fair, he wasn,t wrong

after removing this much material the brace was doing fuck all except still restricting the steering and looking shit



so .... chop chop



how the very fuck I didnt pick up on this weeks ago I have no idea , i mean look at this, the tube runs right into the yoke



not to worry, I have a cunning plan

trying to convince myself I don,t need a shorty lever for the clutch side , I was losing, but then realised i dont know how heavy the lever will be with the welded centre, so I will hold off

Umm I was talking about the OTHER round thingy with the slot welded into the tube in front of the modified area, possibly a bracket for something? Does seem like and awfully inconvenient place to fit a shopping cart token :D

got the little bar machined up



it would have been better a little shorter, but not enough to bother re-making

and the holes better not on the same plane, but it,ll work





took sizes for lock stops too

quick mock up

not got a lot to show for this weekend, started the shed re-shuffle, which right now leaves me no room to work and limited access to tools

i did clean this up, its cover was damaged and the rust monster snuck in



it looks worse than it is, everything still moved and worked, its now rubbed down, sprayed and greased

sized up for the pot brackets, they,ll be nothing fancy, no offence to anyone who has them, but the super articulated cnc multi piece adjustable ones just look stoopid , IMO. I,m all for a bit of excessive engineering, but a line has to be drawn

CAD in action



the counterbore is too tight for the bolt on that clamp, its on my list



just noticed the rubber bleed nipple covers have the Acossatto logo moulded in, thats pretty cool

couldn't agree more, they just look unbelievably fussy. Like 90s motoguzzi rider fussy
