I'm not much when it comes to electrics, so it will be a slow and painstaking job to hook up everything correctly to the wiring harness. Then it's nut and bolt the whole bike, fill all the fluids and bleed the systems, time and fire it up. Piece of cake ;D3DogNate said:yeah the left and rights hug the motor... they are different in every example I found...
Bike's looking good too.. when's first start up gonna happen? We need first start up videos.... always.
I'm waiting for these gaiter clips to show up early next week from the Philippines. I will run the brake lines through one of the holes in the clips to locate secure them. It's a royal PITA to remove the front wheel. Come to think of it , removing the wheel won't be the issue because i doubt these clips will clear my caliper brackets if I try and install them from the bottom. So I will need to pull the top tree and lower the front end out just to get the clips on, what a joy to look forward to. Once all that is done I think the front mod will be complete and I can put fluid in it.Brodie said:I am also envious of the 70 degree weather you have. I am having the opposite problem, it is 108 in my shed.
Good to see you got the brake lines sorted.
I originally was going to use these flat wire clips, but their diameter is too small and would leave about a 3/4" gap in the ring when installed and the end would dig into the rubber gaiter. The round wire clips are made for the Triumph so diameter is correct, yet still have plenty of room to open when squeezed.spotty said:nice looking bits of metal, are they ebay ? do you have a link to them
i'm going to need something similar for the CB750 when it gets trailbiked and has gaiters fitted along with the twin disc CB900 front end
