    You are either dipping your tungsten a lot or you aren't cleaning your al at all... or both.

    Nice skidplate.

    Very cool indeed. You thing the new sub frame is strong enough..... Looks like a very nimble, and capable machine, that begs to be jumped. Just looks like the members are gonna hold a lot of impact. Nice...

    I'm not mechanically inclined enough to second guess your work, so I'll just say that I love people like you, I'm always fascinated by peoples attempts to use their own ideas and skills to improve on a motorcycle.
