Talking Mega-Build -- Finished! (finally)

Okay gents, here it is, finally finished. I think I'll remove the luggage rack unless I need it, otherwise, I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Few notes... it rides amazing. With only 1 finger, I can brake hard enough for the ABS to engage. It's an animal in the braking department. The turn in is better on the new wheel and tire size, and the ride is better. I can't really attribute this to anything in particular because I changed suspension components, wheels, tires, and all kinds of things at the same time.

Oh, one last thing... the tolerances are TIGHT! The front brake calipers have to be removed to take the front wheel off, and the chain only has 1.8mm of gap from the rear tire. The rear tire is also wider than the rear fender. I love a fat *** though!

Enjoy, and let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks!

One last thing... HUGE shout out to MikeB from this forum. He sold me some extremely difficult to find aluminum parts that he had someone machine in Canada to fit the X-Arc lamps (front and rear) to Motone adaptors that wouldn't usually work.

It's members/contributors like MikeB that add value to forums like this. If you're ever down south, swing by Savannah and your booze and burgers are on me for a night.

Best,
Don

Looks fantastic! Very well done. Those are some spendy wheels you've got there. I'd love to see you do a write-up on them sometime with your thoughts on what difference, if any, they made.
