Thanks for the kind words, much appreciated. So I stripped the frame right down and took it to the old mans.

Its amazing what a difference having all the right tools make. I wasnt happy with my previous attempt at the rear brake switch bracket so I thought Id have another go this time using dads drill press and bench grinder.

No one will ever see it except me, but the devil is in the detail after all.

Next the rear brake pistons wouldnt budge do we had to pump grease into the caliper to release them worked a charm. Sorry no photos my hands were covered in grease.

So the frame with get water blasted then powder coated satin black

Im debating whether or not to powder coat the rear brake caliper satin black or the same colour gold as the rims.

Unfortunately the engine work and frame work will al be ready after Ive already flown out for work so it will be six weeks before I can put it together but I should pretty much have most of the stuff done so I can put her all back together once I get home around Xmas would love to have her running by mid jan that would be awesome.

Well I painted up the battery tray and reinstalled the electrics.

The old man welded up a better bracket for the coils that will allow the tank to sit properly and also wont break its a much thicker gauge of plate.

Hopefully whilst Im at work all of the engine work and powder coating get done. Then over Xmas it will be assembling.

Im thinking Ill hold off on the steering damper as a friend of mine has just done the same mod and said it was much better than original. That said his rear shocks were taller than mine which probably changed his steering geometry for the better mine sits fairly low, so Im unsure what impact that will have

Looking good.

I'm in a bit late on this one, but you're not using the stock charging system, right?

Also, you can skip one of the ground cables on the M-Unit, if you wanted to save a bit more wiring space. Only one of them is needed.

No Im using a cycle x upgrade, I think that extra black wire that looks like an earth is the wires for the LED tail light set up. I need to keep some length on it as the light will be housed within the tail section,but the wire will feed into the tray. So when I seperate the two Ill need some wiggle room.
