I used the triples from the GasGas. The backup plan was to have a custom set of triples made for these forks. A quick Google search brought up a guy out east that would make up a set of triples if needed.

Below is a photo of the lowered shock mount. It consists of two pieces of steel plate bolted to the original shock mount hole and the unused hole in front of the shock. The shock is the Progressive one on the bike when I purchased it. Not as much travel as I originally wanted in the rear end...but works surprisingly well so far on the gravel and fire roads.



Also note that the original red side panels are back on the bike. I made brackets with rubber grommets to hold the rear of the panel. This rear side panel mount, normally slides into the tail piece bodywork, which is now gone.



Added tank knee pads, and a skid plate to the sump over the weekend. Also replaced the crankcase breather, which was cracked, go course.

Next up are dirt bike foot pegs. I'm open to great suggestions and ideas.
