4.60" tyre is actually 4.50" at the widest point.
I'm intending to make a new torque arm from 6061  8)

Finally got round to making a new brake link rod for Cafe.
Also finally got round to fitting a proper heavy duty clamp on exhaust/silencer joint  ::)
Machined a couple of ends with offset built in, twisted pedal operating arm and brake operating arm so it has plenty of clearance and movement
Machined some 3/8" stainless bar and ran an 8mm thread down it
Tyres are a little oxidised from lack of use (I don't think it's been anywhere for about 14months?

Took a bunch of painkillers and took the cafe out for the first time since Oct 2011.
 Cafe Moto meetup group took a run out to Carter Bros.Garage.
Great turn out, I think 33 bikes (people kept moving thing to get pictures)
Front brake was sticking a bit and carbs didn't work right for the first 42 miles, (they haven't been used even though bike has to check other peoples carbs)
 There is going to be an article about Cafe Moto in February Orlando magazine, I'll find out which one

Ah the joy of riding a motorcycle hopped upon meds, good to hear you're out of the scoot PJ!

No surprise your carbs are not tuned properly. It's typical that the expert doesn't get time to do their own ;)


See the condensed version of my full build on my blog!

Carbs were tuned OK, just a bit gummed up from sitting on shelf for 14 months.
I drained them when I took them off bike so thought they would be OK (wrong assumption  ::) )
 I did check diaphragms but didn't think to check jets  :o
 Your right I didn't have time to do my own stuff though, even rear brake was 'last minute'
I'm suffering today though, back and arm/shoulder, wife asked if it was a good idea to go riding yesterday,I knew it wasn't but, at the same time it really was worth it  ;D 8)
 It's an online quarterly 'magazine', just looked it up

Thanks, don't know what happened to link either?
 Found out it's a print and online magazine
Rear brake works fine, I don't use it too much though (never have , 4,000 miles on front brake, 60,000+ on rear brake shoes  ;D )

That is the same as I have done with my rear sets, I did consider using a cable (i think I sent you (crazypj) a link or picture) but the linkage worked out better, only difference is that I have the link on top so the muffler sits under nice and high for ground clearance.

Yep, I welded some strange shape then made brake to fit.
Thinking about cutting section out of pipe and using something straighter.
It was easier to put extension on underneath of brake pedal but I have several different designs to 'play' with including a swing arm pivot 'pivot' with link and cable
Pipes go directly under crankcase, I have more than Moto GP minimum 50 degree lean angle  ;D (I would need 'race' tyres to use it all though)

Finally got round to recycling a blown sealed beam headlight
Used a holesaw to cut bulb base out, broke bulb to get it out then Dremel to open up for H4 halogen bulb
I'll probably JB Weld it in place,I have a bulb holder somewhere but can't find it (also have a few more blown ones so I can do next one 'properly'  ;D
