Thanks for that Clive. It really does look fantastic.

Did you have to lengthen the forks at all to accommodate the 21" wheel.

I cant see how it would - someone out there will know the answer - thanks
As far as I know you've hit it. The only difference is the holes for the O2 sensors . My Arrow came with blanking plugs so that it could be fitted to carb models.

Exactly. I used EFI headers on a carbed America and fitted the bungs with some shortened bolts (blanking plugs) with excellent results.

Q: Do you still happen to have the part number for your Arrow ?

02 Blanking Plugs

Just a note:

Be certain to use a cooper washer between the plug and the bung in the header.

A bit of Never Seize will also insure that you can remove the blanking plug should you want to do so in the future.

Regards

Aluminum rims are much lighter than steel rims. In the past steel rims were stronger but present day aluminum rims are equally strong when built up as a wheel.

@Blacktiger: I didn't need to extend the forks, all that has been done is the internals were replaced with the Norman Hyde springs and spacers.
@HenryII, the bracket that the fender mounts on was removed and a extra 30mm was welded onto the bottom "legs".
It is a tight installation because of the tops of the forks been slightly wider, but with a few washers as spacers it works, no problems for the last 30 000 odd kilometers.

And I had to get mine drilled for them, lol. I did only spend $200 on the exhaust, thanks to someone not knowing what they had, so an extra $40 to have someone weld a bung on for me wasn't the end of the world.
