Hahahaha my chances are good but still haha! I hardly used the rear brakes when I used to ride it and even my daily bike I use the rear only for low speed stability, round abouts, u turn etc etc..

Exactly what it's there for..

had my standard shoes relined witha softer material - it may be even work when it's rebuilt

the stock cap is one of my peeves, that is an elegant solution, so subtle it looks stock!

You mind me asking what steering damper that is?

I'd like one for my Mono, did the fork attachment (front) collar come fitted for those forks?

Hey mate, I'm not sure of the brand but it was what the fabricator had on the shelf. He said he used it on his race bikes and does the job.

I don't exactly follow, the collar? Is this the part that goes from the damper to the tube? I will get a better picture and post up in the next few days.

I also have a few updates...

Positioning an oil pressure guage that will run from the oil pressure switch with some custom fittings and braided line.



Rear blinkers on. We have since also centred the number plate bracket.



This is one that concerns me. I think it's going to leak so I will keep a close eye on it when started and if need be I will run and catch can with breather.



This is how it sits. Fabricator has done his job. Spent roughly 60 hours on it.



I also plan to get a custom low profile screen made up to flow with the bike a little better.

Thanks, when I say collar, I mean the clamp that wraps around the fork tube.
Looking good.

Ps - I have that same crank breather set up, so far no leaking but hasn't been on any long rides since the mod.

Ahh yes yes, I follow you. I will take some close up pictures of the setup and hopefully it will clear things up
for you.

Yeah, I will keep a close eye on the breather. I recall some oil in the airbox over time but worst case I will run a longer hose to a catch can/breather set up.
