Got the wheels mounted up. Had to cut the inner bracket for the chain gaurd off to clear the rear wheel.

 

On the front wheel, inside diameter of the bearings were too big so my machinest fabbed up some spacers that fit inside the bearings. Fits like a glove now.

Yeah, getting the wheels installed makes the bike look a lot more finished--and it is, really. Once the engine is done and installed, it'll be clean sailing.

I still need to get a reservoir hose for the shock built and the shock itself rebuilt. There's a local guy here who says anything Race Tech can do, he can do. He uses Race Tech products for his builds too, evidently. I'm gonna give him a shot.

Well, hmmm..probably around $500.00 with purchase price, powder coating the spring and rebuild cost.

Race Tech pieces were used where available,

I bought both of these side covers off of ebay at different times. The top one I got just as you see it, the bottom one had no background and the "600R" was tore up. I brought them to a local place called Sharp Auto Graphics and asked if he could make it look like the other one--I'd say he did a great job. :applause:

Also scored a new Baja Designs street legal kit from a friend. He gave me a screaming deal on it so I believe another clap.gif is in order.

I will be using the stock XL600 tail light but everything else from the kit will be used.

This purchase wasn't absolutely mandatory because the originals worked okay but they looked bad. The rest of the bike is looking like or near new and the originals would have stuck out like a turd in a punch bowl. :smirk:
