What is a good source for the stainless tubing? I was planning on finding another set of headers at the cycle junk yard that has the same size tubing.

Had the forks serviced. New fluid, seals, bushings and every single O-ring. I figured 15 years was enough time, and the tiny droplets on the inside of my windscreen during my last track day, that they needed to go.

Put some SPAL pushers I had sitting around (bought in 2019) and reloaded with some engine ice.....temp drops from 219 to 205 extremely quick now.

erb you are likely to have clearance issues with that fan and the frame spar when you mount the radiators. just have a look and make sure the fan isn't fouling the frame.

I was able to make good clearance on the left hand side but did have to make some new brackets for the right side bringing the fan in about 15mm closer to the radiator.

Looking good! Love the Black and Silver color, can't wait to start the riding season! Unfortunately, still too cold in my area to take the girl out of her hibernation. :sleep:

Here is my winter project. Started with a consistent coolant leak last season...knew it was coming from the middle but didn't want to tear it down till the offseason. Found it coming from both sides on the inlet pipes, bad o-rings. While tore down did the pair and flapper mod, parts otw for both. Yesterday I ordered sato Silver rearsets, and the healtech gear indicator. Mounted some new Dunlops and installed the new undertail, the previous owner had the other one hacked. Think that's it for now. I'll add as things are finished...

Few more pieces came in, Sato rearsets, healtech gear indicator, and block off plates. Also you'll see the old o-rings and the new, huge difference. Everything is installed but the Sato's. Wanted to get out today and get my first ride of the season in. I'll post up once the rearsets are on.
