    Re: Brake Lines and Master Installation

    Quite interesting, like having new bike, new setup works pretty well.
    Handling is relatively fast, although not as fast as my rex, even with bike 50 lb lighter rear tire is wider, has steering damper and super sport suspension geometry.
    Now, turning radius looks to be less than rex and manuvers are easier.
    Higher speed airflow over the fairing hit me cleanly in the chest area and helmet flows in clean undisturbed airstream. Interesting compared to rex and its turbulent high speed air flow at high speed.




    Bike handle cross country also well. Rode places that i would dred hanging to clip ons. Interesting how this modern suspension outperforms old rex navigating rough roads and terrain.

    If it was me, I'd be taking a little slice off each end of the hose that's already in place and see how that works out.

    Shorter is sometimes better.. I have chemical resistant Tygon hose on order. Will try shorter than stock lenght first as you are suggesting....

    Looks like new.

    Bad thing is dented and wrong blue color. Interior of original tank was severely corroded when I got the bike. I cleaned it out and use ethanol free gas. So far I have no issues, yet I want to have nice tank on it.

    So this looks to be my next project.

    I think I can deal with larger, shallow dent from inside. Not sure about Upper dent ....
    Finally getting back to my clean tank project ans pulling dents



    Gathered some hardware in mean time. Got glue sticks and gun on sale in home depot. Plastic thingies on eBay

    Re: Fuel Tank

    Put tank of gas through it at highway speed yesterday and today.
    Very nice, stable ride at high speed but also balancing the bike at zero speed is surprisingly easy. Center of both masses have to line up pretty close. That translate to ease of low speed manouver.



    I had to loose custom gel seat (still on the pic above) and go back to stock. I figure Gel one had steeper angle, less compatible with new riding position. Stocker feels better, will look at available aftermarket options.
    Near therm plans to remove paar system and civilise exhaust bark a bit. Could use some nice cnc mirrors too...

    Woodpecker project progress so far:



    I think I went as far as I could with glue pulling. Two areas of deep gouging should be attacked from inside I think.
