a few tweaks
You will also notice a different remote resevior -- from a fox shock fitted to a vfr 750. Checked the spring rates, and it should be in the ballpark for my bike's needs as well. Triple adjustable and rebuildable as well, whereas the stock 900rr model was a throwaway item... and based on the leaking seal, it was time to throw it away!
In other news, just waiting for the 28mm needle bearings to come in the mail. Atom-Jet will then bore the swingarm pivots to suit. As well, with the engine out and at school, its time to check the valves. Doubtful that they are out of spec, but while the engine wasn't run for long, it was run pretty hard. Will be interesting to see what comes up.
