She's almost totally stripped now, just a frame with the engine and the triples. I've found several things needing repair: cracked speedo drive, .002" wear on the drive side of the rear axle. The bearing seems tight and smooth, though. I have no confidence a used replacement won't be just as bad . The fairing frame is cracked, along with damage to the front fender and oil cooler, I think that was all caused by hitting a huge pothole hidden in the shadows last year. The steering head bearings have a notch and will be replaced with tapered rollers. The bill is getting longer. I ordered a ton of stainless fasteners to make reassembly easier, and add a little bling. Though I like the white frame and wheels paint scheme, I feel it's overdone. I'm trying to come up with an alternative that will " pop" . Any thoughts ?
