I got some from Moto Carrera, but I'm not satisfied with them. Would rather have bougth some spares from them, and then source the rest elsewhere

Finished up the plate, where most of the electronics are mounted. Fits behind the sidecover and can't be seen from the outside.



Unblanking 6. gear.



But was already unblanked?



A throttlecable I received from Yambits.

First, SAE threads, on a metric bike, wtf?

Heim joint on brake side, useless, if you want to be able to actually want to sit somewhat comfortable. Its waaay too short.

When depressing lever, it will lock up with the brake axle arm, bending was needed.

Next issue.



Look at how close it passes eachother. No space for the front peg.

I believe you're better off buying the gear and brake shaft parts, then piece together the rest.

If I had to do it again, I would buy some more period correct steel pegs/levers, and some M.C spares. It can be done for around half the price, and will look better.

I hear 89-99 fzr600 controls can be made to work with little effort.
I'll probably end up going that route myself.
