Now the party begins haha.
Thanks mate. It is one of my dream bikes and I couldn't pass the opportunity to have a new one.

Yet again sorry for the super basic mod updates but I promise it will get better when I do things like fit the new indicators with the stock plugs, make a custom infill plate to hold the new tail light and fit the new bars with holes drilled for the original controls.
The aim is to be so basic anyone can follow it and not stuff up. Feel free to chime in if you think I should add some more info to posts.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Just for the purpose of accurate record keeping here is a photo of the reflector bracket now I have a decent scale.
Hope the missus doesn't mind...

Now that would be a very nice scale to weigh the pistons and rods after you have shaved off some grams.  ;)

(... and no need to say thank you for the ignition map, just let me know how the old girl does, when you got her back on track. But that's for the other thread!)

Still working on this. I have not had a day off in 2 and a half weeks but the next chance I get I will sit down and do a few tut posts.

Next up is tail light replacement.
