I have the "midset" plates majority finished. I just need to grind a few places to get a better fitment to the frame. My mate at work has done a nice job on them. Made from 6mm stainless plate, to my crappy design. I went for function over form. Half the right side will be hidden behind the muffler once I get my new exhaust sorted.

I am very excited for the future of this bike. But I think the heads may need to be rebuilt in the near future. There is an oil leak through the front exhaust. I am hoping this will go away as I run the bike a bit longer, but I am also aware the valve seals may be shot from sitting so long.

If the heads do come off I will be replacing the plain bearing for a roller bearing for sure.

Pictures of the plates soon, need sleep first. Has been a long week of night shifts and I am expecting a call out tonight.

If you have to do the heads anyway, have a look at Xv750 heads. They do have smaller valves, but the boost in compression is well worth it...

I will keep that in mind.

For now I am going to dump the oil and replace it, it only has 250km since the last change but the one before that was around 15 years ago. I cannot imagine the manner of crap that may have dislodged.

Hopefully that will give me a better idea about what is going on inside.

Here is the initial mock up of the left side peg.

Seems to work alright, just need to tweak the linkage rod a bit more.

The right side is going to be a bit more difficult as I need to find or make an actuator to fit the stock spindle the stock lever connects to.

when I put forwards on my Honda 4 I had similar prob so I just got another stock brake pedal and cut it then attached the linkage rod to that, its easy cos it fits straight onto the spindle and can be attached at any angle that suits
