Thanks to Pezz's great measuring and organising the machining of the CR stem it all went together painlessly. then it was the fiddly stuff, relocating the ignition switch, fitting up the KTM front guard that Ozimick donated to the cause, thanks again mate !!!!. Fitting the pushbike speedo sensor etc etc.

Pezz, a true artist at work making brackets and spacers









OldDog popped in and was a great help getting all the brackets made and fitted up



Then it was the test ride, woohoo, feels good, different but good, it will take a while to get used to it. the forks feel very stiff just sitting on the bike but feel supple to ride so far. The single 320mm disc feels like it's going to have plenty of power once it all beds in.

The it was time for a celebratory beer from the Advrider stubby coolers





Thanks to all those who helped make this happen, I hope I can return the favour one day !!!!. Pezz, Ozimick, OldDog, Malcom, it's great to have mates !!!!

Farkin brilliant Greg, farkin brilliant. This coldie is for you and the coolest looking front end I've ever seen on an AT.


I guess I'd better sort out a set of WR 450 forks for the S10 then.

still a few things to sort out, got the CR master cylinder on at the moment so no front brake light or right hand mirror mount. Got to hunt arond for a Dommie /'XR600/transalp 600 one to fit up. The CR front wheel has pretty small spokes and a narrower rim than the AT, 1.6" Vs 1.85" so I want to get another beefier wheel built up as well.
