LOL I threw the scotchlock in the trash when I opened mine. Im hoping to get it installed today or tomorrow along with about 20 other things. Looks great.

Thats the best thing you can do with a Scotchlock.

The instructions for mine said to static time at full advance.

I just did it normally, then I was able to twist and hold it at full advance to check.

Spot on. Just gotta tweak it in now with the strobe.

Re: Black Knight..First nice ride ALMOST successful

Rach and I had our first sunny ride of the season.

It was almost a success. The circlip popped off and my shifter was left dangling by the rearset linkage out on the breeze.

Got home, drilled a hole through the shaft and fixed that.

Re: Black Knight..Brake upgrade.

Attempting to replicate Irks brake upgrade.

Using factory Honda disc hub w a Kawasaki disc...

the new disc is larger diameter + lighter. I will weigh parts before installing.



Drilled, tapped and countersunk hub for the shouldered Kawasaki bolts.





Fitted w aluminum crush washers as the bolt heads didn't quite fit the disc as planned.



Jammed w flanged locknuts. Will knock off excess threads before paint.



Picked up a second set of forks, along w everything for rebuild...I will swap these for minimal down time.
