Thanks Guys, much appreciated.

Has anyone had the problem of the plunger spinning in the fork tube when trying to remove the lower allen head bolt to take it all apart?

Any special idea or tool that can help?

TIA,

I usually keep the forks all intact so that the spring pushes down enough to stop it from moving.

Ah yes! its always a simple solution, I will give that a try. Thanks for the input. The first one came apart with ease but the second one not so much.

Got the rims on and the forks in and lowered as mentioned before. Thank you Yamaha for providing a top spacer lol.
Also Marvel Mystery Oil is awesome as cleaning agent on aluminum.

Just quick update,

Got a ton of parts in. The motor is ready for paint and to be put together. Exhaust from Circle F came and looks amazing. Got some new Shinko's on the rims.

Getting closer,

Got the monoshock frame tabs cut out and tack'd into place. Still need to finish weld it but its strong. Seat height is very nice.
Got some spacers to add to keep the shock from moving side to side.
Almost ready for powder coat.
