I have just heard that the top yoke won't be ready until two weeks time (I designed it freehand and it is being CAD-ed and then cut from a billet on Aluminium), and I have finally found someone to powder coat the rear wheel the same colour as the front, ... and I will be away on hols for two weeks... back mid Feb.
In the meantime I ordered and received a new front brake MC to get the rubber seals for the rear, but they are completely different! So I'm back to square one on getting that MC to stop weeping fluid....
Inserted the wheel bearings with a press at work. Easy-peasy, and I did not forget the small inner shaft tube (well,.... I nearly did!)
I have also ordered tyres. Bridgestone Battlax BT45's. Size 120/80/17 and 150/70/17. These have a 61 load rating and 145mph speed rating, so fast enough and good for a heavy bike. The sizing makes the front identical to the standard 110/90/18 and the rear slightly smaller (3%) than the standard 130/90/17, so I am not losing any significant height, just a little top speed (but gaining a little acceleration).
