Ahh...I see, no changing out the brake line now.
Think that shrink tubing might eventually let you down where it runs through the brake line guide. Dirt will provide good abrasive media to cut through the shrink tubing. Will last for a while though.
Yeah, I know. Always wanted to try it.
It will last as long as it lasts.
It's not the 'high-temp solvent-resistant' version of shrink tubing, either, so....
500cc of silicone spray before every ride....

Added shrink tubing to the 'mini' seat' mount posts, so it would attach more tightly
Cut off the tops of the WR headlight mounting brackets
Trimmed the headlight bezel so the brake line can move more freely, and added a piece of split spoke wrap to further improve the movement
Reloacted the kill button inwards, as the harness is short, and it was being pulled too tightly
Final version of the seat installed

Can I have your Beta?
It looks pretty good huh, all shiny, with brand new tires and everything.
...but yes, you can have it!
All you have to do is answer this one question:
Pick the number I am thinking of, between 1 and 600,000,000.
You have 5 min.

Oooooah the kickstand! I had such a good plan of grafting the FX kickstand to the YZ footpeg bracket, but I measured only once and cut once, and.....I ended up with a gap....
So, I decided rather that to try and get a welder to comprehend the mulitiple plans, and make diagragms and stuff, that I would bolt the newly cut bracket to the frame.
I tapped the bracket, and put a 6mm bolt through the frame, through a metal spacer, and into the bracket.
It holds very tightly, and I think I could have gone up to an 8mm bolt no problem...and still can.
You can see the spacer viewed from underneath
It turned out great, appears to be strong enough. The hardest part by far was re-installing the kickstand spring....

Time to call your kickstand union rep.
Ya think anyone will ever notice????
Yea I know it will bug you every time you think about it.
Just ride it and forget about it.
I'm sueing Yamaha for making the kickstand spring all hard and stuff to re-install. Icky.
