Thanks!!

Feels like I'm getting SOOOOO close!!

Chain, sprocket cover and LHS rearset are on



Rearsets are from TTR400, available from 4into1.com.  I see that TTR400 now have newly designed units from the 400F....mine are the older ones, bought off kijiji about a year ago.

Also started assembling the front brake stuff.....calipers assembled and on, and some brake line HW bits are due in tomorrow....




Also did some random bolt torquing, and cleaned up some cable routing.

Well,  it's been a quick but in some ways slow couple of weeks.

Lots of trial and error on the front brakes....I think I still have some work to do here....BUT, she's licensed, insured, and on the road!!




Still certainly recognizable as a 400F (which was the goal) just tweaked a little!!

Took it for a quick shakedown run to the gas bar this afternoon, then again this evening to a buddy's house. 

Will get out sometime soon with the more expert photographer daughter and hopefully get some better pics.

Thanks to all here for the help, advice, encouragement!!
