Left hand seems to be getting worse since accident in early October, really putting a damper on things.
What happened? Accident? Shit man, we may butt heads on occasion but I hate to hear of any brother eating pavement.

Unusually cold weather in Florida is also slowing things down (probably why I'm hurting all over?)

Wait.....no....really........they have that there? What constitutes 'cold'? Didn't hit 70 yesterday? Ha!

Hi Swagger,
 You'd probably like me if you knew me  ;D
I damaged nerves and tendons pull starting a Suzuki Ozark when it backfired (its a damn 250 atv)
Lot luckier than the other guy who got hurt, he dislocated shoulder.  :o
The electric start destroyed crankcase bosses but, no-one told me it backfired when trying to start it (until later-after I got hurt)
Still dont know cause, possibly faulty CDI running full advance, will have to get timing light on it sometime
Checked cam timing and flywheel key/keyway, all good.
 Everyone is afraid to go near it now  :D
 Its been close to freezing in Florida for about a week or more, run out of firewood (from trees I cut up during hurricanes in 2004  :o)
 I don't think it got up to 50f today and about 30~32 last night
 'We' are set up to loose heat so when it get 'cold' it feels real cold.
 Weather people are quite happy to tell you wind chill factor is going to make it feel like 20 degrees.
Mid 50's~70's is about normal temps this time of year.
 One good thing though, I should be back on single shifts at end of week so I only have to do 5:00am until 2:30pm fom next Monday

Rear hub turned up today.  8)
I got lucky, it has already been bead blasted and came complete with axle, brake plate and chain adjusters (axle nut is only thing missing and I'm sure I have one stashed)
I filed out the webs between fins already so its looking smoother
 Going to mark it up for drilling over weekend.
 Not sure what to do with sprocket carrier side, havent seen anything that looks good when its drilled/filed out.
 Thinking of machining some 'fins' onto it or cutting away betwen webs inteernally then fitting mesh?
 Problem is, when I start cutting, I'm commited to it. (I guess I can always buy another if I really mess up or don't like it?  ::))
 Already decided to 'skeleton' the brake plate, drilled some holes for guide to where the internal webs 'live'
 Anyone drilled rear hub? got pics? any links?

Swing arm arrived, its pretty rusty and dirty but I don't think its going to be too much of a problem
 Been too cold to do anything, below freezing all day (must be, there is ice in the crevices in/on trees next to house)
 definitely not set up for this weather.
 Went to doctors yesterday
 I'm officially sick, blood pressure up around 144~150 over 88~103 plus I have bronchitis and bunch of antibiotics  :o
 Guess its the reason I've been totally exhausted.
 Good news though, I'm only doing single shift next week, plus I'm going to have a day off sick to get some tests done 8)
 Maybe I'll feel well enough to actually do something useful (particularly if weather gets about 55f  ;D)

My father called me from Sarasota yesterday complaining about the cold. I had little sympathy. :(

Feel better friend.

No....no way. An Ozark!? Damn......I have more sympathy for that that I would for someone getting their ass kicked doing something dumb. That sucks, hope it clears up soon. I have some nerve damage in my right knee from an incident. I know THAT brand of fun.

You're probably right....

As well, I can relate to not being set up for cooler temps. I have a buddy who owned a hotel in Key West, spent a long lazy summer there after college. It hit 55* one fall day and I thought I was gonna die of hypothermia. There was a decided lack of awesome bikini action around that week.....

nothing to report, except its still freezing, probably seeing it on news now as citrus crops are  being damaged (so price will be going sky high for 'fresh' OJ)
Ice out back hasn't melted for at least 4 days (maybe longer, I didn't check soon enough)
Single shift didn't happen, got home 7:30pm, something to eat, time for a shower and bed, ready to do it again tomorrow.
This is looking more like a blog than a build  :(

Still nothing much happening with bike (although I am ordering tyres and chain this week  8))
After I  I complained to workman's comp insurance company, (they closed case  ::) ) its now re-opened and I'm seeing specialists most days this week :o
This makes me very nervous as insurance companies usually do all they can NOt to spend money.
 Th fact they are in daily contact and arranging things to suit me gives me the impression they fucked up by doing nothing when accident happened?
 Anyway, I have another appointment at 5.00pm today
 This is an update to let you all know I haven't stopped working on things, just slowed down a lot  :(

Man hang in there PJ, and don't let the insurance companies eat you alive.  They are brutal.  BUT it does sound promising.

We'll still be hanging around when you get things going again!
I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.

Thanks Kanticoy,
 still nothing happening with bike :-[  >:(  :(
 I've been seeing one specialist after another all week, and, I have appointments all next week.
 Getting a bit worried as I was 'eletrocuted for 45 mins yesterday (nerve conduction tests)
 Nerve going through elbow is messed up, dont know how bad but thats 'probably' whats causing problem with hand
 I'm seeing a hand surgeon on Monday which is freaking me out a bit.

Ya know what pisses me off? All these doctors who are effing rich are just "practicing" medicine.
Yeah I know that's semantics, but really.....why do we hear: "Let's try this and see how it works...."
Sucks man, hope it works out for you. I've got residual nerve damage in my left knee from college ball. No fun man.....

Sheez, hope it all works out ok PJ. Mind you, I'd bet on this being true:

Least you don't have to pick up the tab for all this stuff I guess. Hope it goes okay and they fix you up.

Nothing much happening with bike (so no pics) but, I can still push buttons so tyres and chain are ordered, plus some 35/35 H4 bulbs and a chain for the Yamaha
 I'm getting Continental 'GO' 90/90x18 front and a 110/90 x18 rear
 Quite expensive but I know how I ride so I don't want Chen-Shin 'supersliders'
 Going on WM3 rims so should flatten out slightly ;)
 I decided I'm going to make a new top yoke out of flat plate so I wont have so much fork tube sticking through top (stock one drops down about 1")
If I like look of it when done I'm going to make another one for the 'dyno' bike
 
Swagger, it pisses me off as well, decided to add a bit about last week (and some on this week.)
 I had nerve conduction tests last Thursday, doctor was OK, probably stoned as he 'forgot' to electrocute me enough  ::)
 He was convinced it was carpal tunnel because the surgery I had 12 yrs ago wasn't done right. ::)
 Luckily, I had seen a Physiotherapist for evaluation two days before and they told me about nerve running thorough elbow which was probably causing problem with hand (the 'funny bone' nerve)
 Anyway, I mentioned this to the guy, he was quite apologetic for forgetting and sorry he was going to have to zap me some more............... ???
 I got electrocuted and stuck with pins (then electrocuted through pins  :o)
went to see hand surgeon yesterday, told me there as nothing he could do as the check sheet had wrong information,  ::) wrong joint on thumb (pull my finger  ;D)
 Said he would love to help if I could get authorisation from insurance  ::)
 Want's to do MRI on hand/elbow to find out whats going on
 Did fix me up with a steroid injection in thumb to help with joint pain and some steroid pills for inflammation which should help shoulder/elbow
 Only slept 4 hrs but was 'better' sleep than I have had since accident and felt pretty good in work (and seem OK at present even though I've been awake since 4.00am  :o)
 I have to have physical therapy couple of times a week but, I can start doing some light  work on bike's (did a bit of filing on XS800 bar mounts to remove casting marks this evening, clamped in vice, wasn't too bad)
Finally got round to ordering extra long drill bits to modify some parts, did some mods to mini headlight for 800 (will have to take some pics and post in chop&bob, no updates since 20th Dec  :-[)
