    Slow progress. Painted my swingarm and started test fitting the shock and mount yesterday.

    I'm finally satisfied with the way the R1 shock is working. Went out for a ride this afternoon and I'm very happy with the way the bike is handling. It was a bit of an adventure welding the upper shock mount to the frame but I think it's a solid weld and is not going any where. I do need to play around with the compression and rebound settings on the rear shock.

    The battery is a small lightweight 12 cell (a123 cell) mounted under the seat in the stock tool box. I need to re-design the oil catch tank and will eventually end up replacing the rear subframe. I still have some other things planned, but I'm in no rush. A big shout out to Houseoffubar for helping with the swingarm and shock mount. His welding skills are awesome.

    Yes, that's what it is. The previous owner had Corbin make it for him. I've never seen another like it either.

    Sorry for the bump, but if you are reading this, do you have any pictures of your front axle and how you fit it?

    Thanks.

    The vent is in the bolt. So long as the aluminum plug isn't too tight in the plastic bush below the bolt groove...

    Trying to have spacers made for a project I'm working on. Do you mind me asking what your's cost. My quotes are over $75 a piece plus a $100 one time set up fee.
