While Rick was working on the stator cover adapter, Allan and I worked on the frame.

First up was to mount the motor properly and measure the space for the airbox (no change, it's still tight) then make a wooden cradle for holding the frame on the jack.


There was more measuring done on the frame just because.


Then we made some footpeg brackets. They're not quite right, but they're close enough: we needed to see how far forward the top shock mounts could go without hitting the rider's leg. We also needed to see that the footpegs cleared the other bits: exhaust, shifter, kickstart lever. Well 2 of 3 is going to have to do for now. Besides, the kickstarter is just a backup anyway.
