Thumb frame

DrBigEdd, the frame is all chromed I have now repolished it with metal polish by hand and allso useing a dremall tool with a 25mm buffing wheel you will see it looking a bit better in photos still to come shortly.

Does anybody have SR43 DR with standard forks to measure 2 things:
1. Distance from front axle to lower yoke with no rider onboard? On sidestand is OK.
2. How much it sags with rider aboard? Would be good if rider will be not too big :) Like 85 kg? but even just info on point 1 will be good start.

Pleaaase?
Since you say 'please'

You already have an answer to No1 and I cant answer No2 since me forks are off me bike. Just wanted to say that sometimes people use short spring sections to preload rather than spacers, in order to not loose travel. In my KLX forks, springs are a bit soft and need also preload, and the route I am taking is to drill the caps, install air valves and give them a few psi.

Try posting the pic and then adding text in the main body of the message. Hopefully that works.

OK, finally but how do i make it smaller do I do this at photobucket thanks.
Well I see you've finally beat that tiny box of silicon into submission

The man has now gone barking mad. First he can't post a photo and now
OMG

We get chrome frames, custom forks and Duc wheels.

.....this is going to be an interesting build.



you have to have at least ONE piece of wood on the bike (keyfobs don't count)....get creative

One can adjust the size of the photo that uploads to Photobucket with a pulldown menu just under the button that says "Choose files"

I've got a fairly large monitor and your photos are just a bit off screen so slightly smaller might be better.

When I first saw the chrome frame I though "nice, but that will look a bit odd on a trailbike".....when the Duc wheels showed up I understood where you were going with this.

Take a break, you're gonna be tired tomorrow and nothing is worse than an 8 fingered carpenter.....well, almost nothing.
