That looks like a good position. Not too far back.

Thanks.  I think next is making mount plates from 3/8" plywood for each side to validate the setup and come up with what I need to either make or have them made.

Are you adding in for seat foam on the KZ height?

I included two inches, it's hard to tell with the fancy cad I use.

I wish I could tuck the rear sets in where they are zip tied now.  There just is not enough swing arm clearance.

Eliminate the heel guard mumbo jumbo and attach to the frame. Done.

If you want a heel guard, go off the tube.

The brake spring and switch are in the way of the swingarm as it sits in that pic.    I only need about 1/2 inch more of clearance, what I have in mind for the mounting plate should take care of that.  As for the heel guards, hmm, still thinking.

I look forward to seeing that head conversion Beach.    I have a login to the new lonesometwins site.  I really wished they went with a better forum platform but at least they upgraded and were able to keep alot of content.

As soon as I collect it I'll flag pix up.  Yea, the website has been done by the guys that started the site off ...... NOT their day job, but they've put a lot of effort into it.
