I fitted 2 different fenders for a look today. The first is mounted high and is from a Yamaha IT200, the second is mounted low and is from an XS750.
My preference is the low mounted XS750. What do you think??
Front view with the XS750 fender. Happy with the new headlight and having the speedo out there. Might put a flyscreen on, but we will see.
Pat questioned what would happen when the rear suspension bottomed out. It pretty much hits the top and the front simultaneously, so I guess that's OK?

If you had one with more of a beak it would look nuts!

Engine is in, but all is not perfect. Broke the last compression ring when assembling. Only one person to blame http://www.dotheton.com/forum/Smileys/default/cry.gif
The engine was always going to come out, but now it needs some work. Other than the ring, it has all gone together well and I am happy with the header and oil cooler. With the oil cooler squish plate the oil cleaner housing are level with exhaust and engine mounts. Looks like I will be able to change the oil filter without demounting the header.
The looks like the exhaust will all go together well, the muffler will go back a little further so the end is level with the axel. Now need to cut the flanges off the header and fit and weld the ones that I have made.

Welds on that exhaust look great. Did you do them yourself?

The header is off a Triumph 1050 and is yet to be modified to connect to the Yamaha head. The Triumph pitch is correct but the inlets are cast and an oval shape which cannot connect. I have made up some new header tubes for the interface, now just have to cut and shut. I do not TIG weld, but have a friend at work who is very capable. Might cost me a beer or two.  ;D
