Yeah definitely! I found a tapered bearing kit for the steering head too. If you need one let me know and I'll shoot it over. I think it should work for your bike.

For color I think I'm going to leave the stock tins as is and source a 2nd tank to play with other colors. Best of both worlds that way

Looking good! So the lower position is better with the rear sets?

I don't know that it really matters, it just looked really weird having them on top of the triple tree. It doesn't seem like a huge difference as far as how much weight is put on your arms but I guess time will tell.

So I'm a bit worried that I'm missing a part for the front wheel assembly. When I went to fit the calipers onto the forks I noticed one was making contact with the rotor, so I had to re-adjust the axle a bit to get everything to clear. I thought maybe I'm missing a spacer or something, but looking at the front wheel assembly I don't see what it could be

But then I noticed that random nut, #20. Anybody have any idea where it would go?

I think I'm missing some pieces to fit the speedo drive correctly.

Either way, fitment pics. I don't really see how I could adjust this any other way, the rotors almost make contact on each caliper on the outside edge.

Closeups. These should be fitting flush shouldn't they? I'm not sure what I'm missing.

Hmm, the only thing I can think of is some sort of washers on the inside of the fork/outside of the wheel.

I figured it out, it was something stupid. I didn't have the axle nut with the GL1000 axle so I used the one from my CB750 and totally forgot about it.

Yeah I like the gauges a lot, but the backlighting is a little blue for my taste. It's probably not worth pursuing to change it.

I finished nearly everything I wanted to last weekend and was all ready to take it for a spin. It fired up immediately, idled fine (well, as fine as it normally did) and I got it to the bottom of my driveway where it stalled. I tried to start it back up, dead battery. So I kick started it, and it died as soon as I let off the throttle and blew the fuse.

The only thing I messed with in the electrical box was replacing the turn signal relay but I guess maybe I unplugged the regulator/rectifier? Or maybe the new turn signal relay is touching it? I didn't know enough about it at the time to check it out and it was getting late yesterday, so I guess I'll take a look tonight and see what I can find.

It looks REALLY good though, I'm extremely pleased how it turned out. If I don't get it running tonight I may just push it out to the street to take pics.
