Honing kit used tonight, barrel/bores looking OK I reckon. Not perfect but they should do if pistons measure up to fit.

Also, the loom has been trialed and all appears to be in order. Connected the major components such as regulator, spark box, coil pack, indicator relay.....I'm sure I (my son) can adapt to suit the 400/4 frame and bar controls too.




In other news...I've temp fitted the front disc to wheel and wheel to forks as I need a suitable caliper......anyone advise please?

Clearance between mount and disc = 20mm.





Mount to mount dimension - 60mm



I really like Yamaha calipers with the anodised star piston design, I wonder if they could be made to fit?

A quick mock up of the Microns on the engine, just to see if they sit right....very pleased :)





Liking the way they fit and look...fat expansion pipes in stove enamelled black will go nice with a glass blasted engine with black detailing.

Spoke to a local blaster & powdercoater today, 50 for each alloy wheel in appliance white, 80 to blast and powder the frame and the same for the tank too. The white will have a RAL number so I can have the plastic guards 2packed in the same shade of washing machine white ;)

Engine will be glass blasted which leaves a nice natural finish he tells me....liking the sound of that :)

All I'm sayin' is....it helps to have a mate who runs industrial power washing machines...;)



That must count as the easiest degrease I've ever done.



Small steps....

My workspace just got funky.....x9 lighting panels have certainly brightened things up a treat :)



...and, I think I've found a possible front guard......the CBX550 front of my other bike.

Stock position..



Where I think it should sit..



So I'll trim the leading edge and find suitable U bolt fittings (hope not exhaust clamps) to clamp around the fork leg. That'll also provide a mounting point for the speedo that I want on the leg too.

Been chatting to a fella on FB who produces custom decals. I'd told him what I wanted and sent a MS paint sketch of the CB200 tank.

He's turned out this amazing design which I will go with as it's better than my outline idea.

Suzuki GSX-R mid/dark blue and white (the tank will be painted white) decals in blues. He's now working on a flash of colour on the CB350 side panels I hope to fit.

Kempton Park Motorcycle Jumble turned up trumps again.....5 excellent hours rummaging to find a few items that'll work.



The alloy block will become the caliper standoff bracket.

Red NGK plug caps will add a touch of colour

The stainless springs will look smart on the Microns.

The Domino BETA throttle will take the Renthal grey grips and look very cool.

The red/black gloves will keep my pinkies clean :)

So, I'll be needing a longer fork stem then....:/

Spoke to my tame turner who can copy the Malaguti stem but add 15mm as it came up short when the taper bearings were installed which is a bummer, but just another obstacle to overcome.

I'll also need a 5mm spacer for the lower race as the bearing will sit too far inside the headstock and it may rub on the bottom yoke. The race has to be spaced 5mm from fully home which is about right.

He'll also make custom Delrin swingarm pivot bushes with one piece stainless steel liner as I couldn't find Metalastic steel/rubber bushes in the dimension required.

No images as somehow, I deleted them off the phone before downlaoding them....???
