    RE: Fork braces lower on the fork pairs usually gives the best stiffening to increase road feel in the hands. Much less likely to twist and flutter around. These are usually recommended by others on the forum. Tad pricey, but very well made.

    THAT GAUGE IS GREAT LOOKING!

    I was recommending something like this. Locating it up high compromises the forks ability to dampen bumps.

    Very nice build Eggie!

    I also like that gage!!! Wow. It even goes well with the colour of the tank and seat...lol..

    Keep it up!

    PS: I am still in the planning phase of my build. But I read here on the forum that if one wants to eliminate the air box, install the cone filters, plus go with a 2 into 1 exhaust, then best you get everything 100% correct, to prevent a power loss.. Therefore, I decided to not go that route..lol..but that's just me.

    I'm thinking that the R/R should be mounted on the underside of the seat pan, out in the air. She might get a little toasty packed in there. Just a thought.
