This is an awesome thread! Excited to see what numbers you end up with, with regards to height under engine, rake and trail. I have the same fork as you, but I'm building a Suzuki GS750.

Cheers, the hand brake has been on for a bit with the introduction of Jnr, and Work.

Maybe when I go home I値l measure the rake and trail, I知 another week from flying home.

Luckily My old man has been chipping away at a switch assembly



This was the base shape



Then he housed the micro switches



Tapped the thread for the two clamping bolts



Then had to come up with a plan on how we would run the wires



Ended up running a channel on the underside which will exit through a single hole on the inside of the housing

Just trying to find some cheap flexible steel cable to run the wiring through

Dad found a 15m for but it痴 like $167 bit exy

Still have to finish shaping them then finally anodise the housing black

But it痴 looking pretty cool,

So finally got into the shed with old man Murphy, we had to finish the internal channels on the underside of the housing so the wiring will be discretely run on the underside of the handle bars. Hopefully without getting squashed.

So into the mill and a little at a time we deepened the channels until the wiring would fit

So next was the test rub for the left hand switch block

Using the dummy handle bar the left hand switch block seemed to work

Once these have been etched and anodised we may even use resin to hold the wires in place still undecided

Both switch blocks on the dummy bar

Next I wanted to take the scratched out of the top of the triple

We set it up then skimmed the top

Came up good need to get it hydroblasted then engraved, anodised then I知 going to fill the engraving with gold powder coating same as the rims should look the goods hopefully.

Now I need to clean the shed before I can start working again then I値l polish up the switch blocks

May even mock it up on the bike too, just to see how it looks

That's still a pretty good lean angle.
