A few more tidbits.

Skidplate for the Strom. .100 mild steel, tied into a braced set of Givi crash guard and the mounting plates for the SW Motech centerstand. The globinator struck on a couple of the welds, but theres plenty of penetration. Ive smacked the shit out of it and nothing has broken free.





Now, on to my wife's Hawk GT. She hit a deer with it a year ago, and some of the parts are near impossible to find. It will be getting a lot of new stainless hardware soon when I take it down to repaint.

So, I made my own headlight/gauge mount.


And upgraded the brakes with a 4-piston early CBR600RR caliper.


Along with a radial master cylinder which necessitated new clamps to mount mirrors and a reservior bracket.

They look just like Suzuki factory welds. Nothing to worry about.

Yessir. It's called a "thread protector."

Are most barrels externally threaded? Or are some internally threaded like a choke on a shotgun?

Barrels are not threaded. I threaded that one prior to making the protector.


Most barrels that become threaded are threaded externally.

How did you do that checkering on the thread protector? I am trying to do the same thing to my bolt.

Is the bolt already heat treated?

Today I knurled some 1144 steel rods that have been HT'd to Rockwell C 24-27 with no problems. A grade 8 bolt has a minimum hardness of C 33.

These type tools don't load the machine or part as much.
