Threw some new all balls bearings in my front and rear hubs, as well as new tapered bearings on my steering stem.  Put the new bushings in my 550 swingarm and when I mounted it up it was a direct swap. No spacers necessary.  Trued the wheels by using some advanced technology.  :)

Engine dressed up.  Going to let it cure for a week, then I'll consider sanding the fins.  Hoping to drop the frame on it soon.

I've spent many hours cleaning, and re-sprayng a few engines, never had the bottle to sand the fins though.

That's a good lookin' engine, Tune. Did you have to cure it before sanding?  I've read that it needs to heat to 200+ degrees to cure properly, but I don't forsee being able to fire it up for some time.

Getting a little ahead of myself, but I wanted to test the rearset position to make sure that my "bolt on" bracket solution was actually that.  Doesn't look like I'll be that fortunate.    I'd say a comfortable riding position would put my brake pedal at about 130 degrees, which is exactly where it intersects with my spline.  Otherwise, I like where the rearsets are positioned.  I'm thinking I'll have to trim back my spindle and make some additional frame mods where the spindle inserts to get the rearsets to clear.  I'm open to simpler alternatives.

Finished sanding the fins and buttoned up a few other odds and ends.  Had to source a new oil sensor cap from some place in Japan.
Had a friend over, so we did the drop.
