I done a bit more work, figured I would do alot more than what I got done tonight, but I had some issues with getting my front end straightened out.
You see I had originally raised the forks in the triples and mounted the clips and bars ontop of the top triple, I did it to compensate for the bars that were bent in like 8 differnt directions. However it fucked up the smooth stable handling of the bike and made it realy twitchy. So when I figured out how to just flip the clips and straighten out the bars I returned the front height to stock. Basicly it involved simply moving the forks down the triples, but it wasnt easy with just me, and no ratchet straps.
Well let me first start by admitting my derp de der move, I put my clips on (minus bars) and then slide and bolts my top triple on. I say derp de der, because it was a retard move to NOT put my bars in the clips FIRST. Basicly the bars will not slide into the clips as the bars are dished a bit to fit around the forks. So I had to unbolt the upper, and slide it back off once again.
So half hour later I had my clips on the forks, and the bars in the clips and the upper tripple mounted back to stock height. However the lower had to be raised back up, I ended up using a 8 foot section of 2x4 wedged between the front tire and the lower triple to relive the sag from the bike, then using a rubber mallet wrapped in towels I smacked the top tripple and the forks back down to where they needed to be and quickly tightened the lower clamps.
Big pain in the ass, would have been easier with my ratchet straps, or a 2nd person but oh well not a HUGE deal just made me feel kinda tardish. But I got it, feels great on my wrists and lower back with the bars like this now.
Now Im NOT done with the front, I still need to get the wheel off to clean up and touch up my front rotors and smooth the lower clamp, mount a front fender, and replace pads, oh also need to paint the forks too. But since Im down to the last 2 weeks or so before I need to move the bike anyways, so I need to have the bike moveable.
Things are coming along bit by bit...VERY BIT BY BIT
Ive also decided I need to paint the side covers on the motor also, figured black but not yet.
I know I will need to change the oil, and its a decent time to pull the side covers is when the bike is drained of oil. But do I need new gaskets there or not?
Anyways heres some naughty eye candy of the 2 wheeled variety.
