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

I have decided to go down that route Spotty. Going to take the pedal into work tonight and cut and shape it there. Then it is only a matter of adding a small tab for the brake switch to work off.

I was looking at the part Cognito had but decided I was better off just making mods to mine. If I don't like the pegs or if I want to revert I will just use a linkage system instead of stock.

The seat has been stripped and I now have the old foam and cover sitting to the side, I will buy some new foam and shape a better seat for myself in a few days. Going away for the weekend so I won't be near the workshop.

My new fuel pump and fuse box arrived. The new pump moves a lot more fuel than the old one did so I am optimistic this is what was causing the lack of power at higher throttle openings. Although the new pump has 8mm fittings instead of the standard 6mm so I will need to make 2 adapters to suit. Just going to use brass barbs with a right angle fitting.

New bar risers have arrived and I have a set of old superbike bars I will clean up to use. Just need to get a fairing sorted and the speedo for the acewell and everything will come together in time.

Bloody weather. We are ment to get 500mm of rain in my area today with high winds, I am stuck at work and I know my shed will flood.

So I fitted 6mm-8mm adaptor barbs to sort out the fuel pump and have put the new bars on. Decided that I will order new ones as the current are just to pitted.

New air filter has been fitted and the tank will be going back on shortly. Just need to purchase the foam for the seat. A friend of mine has just started an upholstery business so I will speak to her about a cover.

Made the rear brake actuator this morning and have bought a heim joint to fit to it. Just need to make the rod and the rear sets will be done.

coming together nicely then

I had planned to take a week off to go up to my mates new place (with a huge shed/workshop) and finally build the Onda4 of my desires (ludicrously big ratty trail bike) but I've just found out that due to people leaving work/new people starting/people going on holidays i'm not likely to see those holidays for at least 2 months and probably 3........I haven't had any time off in 6 years and i'm knackered

mrs spottys mum lives on magnetic island and we haven't heard from her since Debbie hit, just hoping the comms are down temporarily

Coming together indeed.

Pity about the time off. I have just been asked to stay back as most people are flooded in. Not sure why my work hasn't closed yet, people need milk I guess.

SES were talking about power and phones being out on the islands. Hope the MIL is alright mate.

Just a quick update. Bars contact tank at switches so I will have to order a set with a slightly higher rise.

Thinking I might need to trim the seat pan at the rear to get the shape I want out of it.

As for colour, I am thinking either gloss black with gold trim or "triumph thruxton" green with yellow trim. What is everyone's opinion as I can't decide.

Irritating, ain't it?

I'd go with flat-black and maybe red-wheels if you absolutely MUST add a colour to the bike ;-)

I feel like Matt black 80s/90s cruiser is seriously over done.

Maybe a nice satin black with metallic accents/stripes.
