That solo seat looks a bit firm.

Ha yeah I missed that one. All good. So Iím wondering if I should make some carbon fibre fenders and electrics box. I watched a couple videos and it seems easy enough. So 2 meters by 800mm sheet is $50 delivered. That would go close to covering both fenders. I would likely paint them black because I canít imagine making them to look perfect however hard I try. Alternatively I use the steel fenders but they are heavy. They will get cut down to a better size but still, it will be heavy

Custom spokes rocked up from AliExpress. They look awesome. So I spent $140 inclusive for all the spokes for both wheels. Prices in Australia were $440 plus post for the same. Fuck that, poor asians need a laksa noodle dinner

Engine top end is torqued. I kinda stuffed up though, I used a big torque wrench which had to be set below the markings. I thought it would be accurate but I donít think it was. I stripped about 6 threads on the valve head! Ended up going up 1mm with a tap which worked but was annoying. Carbs are still not done, big case of CBF going on. Might go take the bottom end off to have a look and get the metal out. After that itís getting painted Matt black

Iím looking at what pint scheme I should do for the tank and fenders. Probably going matte black with a gloss black stripe but off to one side of the fuel cap, left or right

just out of curiousity have you mounted up your master cylinder?
I had those some clip ons and the master cylinder did not work at all at a reasonable angle - I ended up getting new clip ones that were all steel instead of aluminum - comprimise in weight but I could run the stock master cylinder without interference. (this was before I decided to do the remote master cylinder I have now)

i've seen people shave a good amount off the cylinder - or just use a radial master from a modern bike

I doubt I will go stock, itís a bit big and clunky for me. I will need to consider it soon though. Probably a modern option I think
