Started getting it back together. Should have it back to stock tomorrow.
So, got it back together this morning. Just gotta put the stock seat foam and cover on and clean up the stock exhaust and put that back on.

TOTALLY different bike to ride now. It feels so much lighter and narrower, much more like an actual dirt bike. It was very light and flicky in the steering without the steering dampener and the stock bars and grips in a different position and no bar risers etc made it very hard for me to get used to.

The Scotts submount replaces any lower clamps you had, correct? Can you take a picture of what you have?

I doubt you'll find too many others with identical knockoffs like these from acerbis in the future..

Yes godwinmt, you found out first hand. That was my point to shep546 that whether it is a pirate copy or straight off stolen original through diversion of manufacturer's stock a high percentage of this stuff that goes on E-bay is stolen, and we should not support these sellers just to save a few cents. IMHO

Will these work for you? The first pic is while I was still wiring up the HDB clamp a couple months ago. Sorry the second one was shot thru the windscreen this morning and it still has some ice crystals on it.

I think you mean to say "make it an R"
You have at least three choices:
1. I own an x and purchased a set of stock R wheels for $500 with a front brake assembly (lever, hose, calliper, etc.)
This is a 30 minute swap over. I haven't sold the X wheels yet. The stock R rear sprocket is 1 t bigger, but the chains for both bikes are the same.
2. just buy a 21" front wheel, maybe a warp 9 w/ the bigger x rotor included, and swap out rear tire, change or do not change gearing
3. Buy a new wheel set from Warp 9 or get a better quality set and use those. These will include rotors and sprockets. $700-1500

Most change gearing anyway

That looks like a tough hill. It does not look that steep in the video until the guy tries to walk the bike back down.
