    I have a custom bearing holder in the works for my GL500 project. Though "in the works" may be something of an exaggeration, as I've had very little garage time to devote to it this summer. It's set up to use the stock Honda bits, including the dust seals, that fit the XL200 shock I'm using. I'll share the design when I have something to show.


    R

    P.S. This post has a basic description of the idea.

    Tore down the rear suspension on Zero and modified the shock mounts. I forgot to take any before and after pics of the actual part but the results speak for themselves. Still has full articulation with the benefit of about 4" extra height.


    Then I bobbed the rear of the frame.

    It's coming along. I'll be setting up the rear of the frame to accept a removable rack for adventuring before it's over. Planning on another work day with Marc Tomorrow.

    That's just sitting there unloaded. With my fat ass in the saddle it's back close to a straight line. Thanks for the heads up though. I'll pay attention to it.
