Clean plates with oil, wipe off very well. Soak plates in clean oil for 2 - 3 hours before install. DO NOT use synthetic oil in new engine.

I would be more worried about metal bits still inside the engine, oil lines, Oil pump, oil cooler/hoses. Flush it all out a couple times with cheap oil or oil and Kerosene mix before running. Do an Engine oil and filter change after 20 miles. (to be safe). Another at 200 miles. Best of luck ... but luck won't help really. Get a pro to help out.
Amen to that brother lol

Broke my chain guard and found a CB550 Honda chain guard fits great but is a little long. Tin snips cut it to length and got it cheap at a bike wrecking yard. Much heavier duty plastic and metal lined and the mounting holes lined up perfectly.

Factory gaiters are the ticket, in my opinion. I used skins on another bike and they are plenty nice, but you have to take care to install them securely in order to keep them in place and check them frequently to make sure they haven't slipped. With factory gaiters you're good to go.

Had one of those ATV wrap around tank bags I cut up and stapled to the back side of the seat. Works perfect for wallet, cell and camera type stuff.

Thanks for the advice! I actually got an entire bottom end from someone who was parting out their bike. I'm just swapping my cylinder, piston, head, and clutch onto the new bottom end. Much easier since I don't have to split the cases or worry about the metal bits still in the bottom end. I will be taking your advice regarding oil/filter changes anyway though. I've got a couple of very experienced inmates that are helping me out with this project. It's already stripped down and we will be starting to put it back together as soon as my wrist pin and rings get here.

I have a set of these I just got from ProCycle. They work fine. I'll admit I preferred the previous ones I got from them that were one-piece (you had to remove the fork tubes to install them)... these have velcro, so it takes a little patience to get them just right. Then secure with zipties.
