    The first bit of bling (slave) was required, the second was for fun.

    WOW!!! You have one of the very rare, RHS drive 9X0's in the world! Jealous...

    Ah, I see its a 640 :)

    What Clutch lever is that? And how's the pull force?

    Savage (???) off eBay, a $28 gamble that paid off. Fit perfect and the reach adjustability is nice. And, for the price you get a matching brake lever. When installing the slave I replaced the mineral with fork oil, a bit more pull force required but it's comfortable with the shape/size of the lever.

    Found the reason for the sticky steering. Oof.

    There's still some weird "clicking" that can be felt sometimes, which might be due to me not tightening the bearings enough (altough the manual warns about over-tightening). Maybe that's not in the bearings, though. Putting the whole front back has proven to be quite challenging to line everything up; the steering bar still seems quite bent, but I think that's due to the bar towers not being set correctly rather than rotated triple clamps.

    Mine has been feeling a bit notchy at center the past week and I was thinking it needs replacement. Wow. Now I am really wondering....
    Terrible timing as we leave on a long trip this thursday/Friday.
    That picture is now seared in my mind.

    I figured out it was cheaper to not ride in the dark.

    will do @Mane

    First off, had to trim some of the lower mount steel bracket to provide necessary clearance on the 950 horn to get it to fit plus bend the horn tags for access... a minor detail.
    Have lost some blood from the sharp mesh edges in the KTM’s snout but I’ll live.
    RG Parts are bueno!

    I think the old 950 tart will look great with a face lift :)

    Had an early @BMacW650 HID/Halogen setup which was great but a whole heap of wiring, relays, ballasts etc etc - I'm now -2Kgs better off the front end :)

    Thank you Braap! Looking great!

    If you could post another picture from the cockpit, as it would look from the rider perspective. I would really appreciate it.

    Regards,
