Hey Seth, can I have the old bayonet bung you took out? I can use it for a project.

I seem to be your worst enemy when it comes to parts... I actually tried to cut it off cleanly and ended up destroying it.
Sorry buddy!

I bought a set of Biltwell Frisco bars, new clutch plates (that hopefully won't stick or slip), and a couple other small pieces.
I do have a question regarding the fender struts: should I have them tig welded or will mig suffice?
Also, has anyone shortened the Ceriani style forks? I'm assuming they can be shortened the same way as factory triumph forks, but I'm sure there has to be something special to them? Just wanted a little input before I go shooting springs and clips across my garage

Has anyone used these plates from Lowbrow? They had good reviews and seem to be better than the old Barnett plates based on what I've read, but I'm sure someone will tell me how dumb I am.

Barnett clutch lining material is great on a daily rider. For bikes that sit a while it is better avoided as the stuff sticks together and you need to live on a hill to break the clutch plates loose again...

That seems to be the general consensus on the Barnett plates as far as sticking after they've sat, but what about these "Kevlar" plates? Did I buy into a gimmick?

Today, I decided to tear into the forks I have and try my hand at lowering them. I found a very uninformative thread about shortening these forks on a different site but it wasn't much help. So, I used the tech thread on shortening Triumph forks and combined with a little but of my own trial and error and managed to get them both shortened 4". Now the stance is darn near perfect

This is the internals of the forks laid out in order of arrangement, for anyone wondering (since I couldn't find a good diagram on the internet).

I had to make a spacer for the top-out spring of course, but the main thing that gave me trouble was that I used small enough tubing to fit in the cupped end of the rod, but that allowed the top-out spring to slide right over my spacer. So, I used a stainless washer and drilled the center and shaved the sides down until it fit in the fork tube without allowing the top-out spring to slide past. I ended up having 1/2" of preload when it was all said and done. And, I made sure my forks will bottom out BEFORE my tire is allowed to slam into the triple trees.

Hey guys,
My original goal (a longshot at the least) was to have this bike done by this past September for my wedding... That didn't happen. I've been tinkering here and there and haven't really had the time or money to take the next step of powder coat and paint.

BUT, I did fire it up and ride it around the block a few times to piss off the neighbors! It was impossible to wipe the smile off my face that whole week.

I'm moving this week and will be working on the bike shortly after that. Hopefully I will have some better updates in the near future.

Great fab, I love it. You must have bought that hexagonal drill from eBay, it's amazing what those chinese come up with!

Looking forward to more updates, hope the move goes ok.

Dan.

Hey Seth
Sorry to hear your wedding didn't happen but it is OK to live in sin my friend. Don't let anybody tell you otherwise
Oh you say I misunderstood? Oh well....
Good to hear that your bike is making noise and you are charged up again.
Ride Safe!

The wedding definitely happened (says my pocketbook)

And thanks guys! Once I get the new garage set up, I'll be able to post more stuff.

Last night I worked on the bike for the first time in a few months. It felt great to be in the garage doing something other than mandatory car work. I didn't do a whole lot because I'm waiting on a couple parts, but I did solve an issue I've been having with my throttle cable holding steady I the throttle assembly.

I don't have a lathe, so I chucked at piece of brass up in an old drill press and made this. It ain't much, but it felt good to check one more thing off my list.
