    Did you measure the bores?

    Yep, and I checked the ring end gap on the old rings just to be sure. Everything measured within spec. I probably could've just gotten away with a re-hone but new rings are cheap and I already had the whole thing apart

    Finally received my unicorn tires today. Had to order the Bridgestone RS10's from a track tire dealer in California since none of the major retailers stocked them in my size (110 front, 150 rear).

    Picked up the swingarm and axle adjusters from powder coating (thanks Darren!). Came out fantastic.

    Buttoned the engine up and ready for install once I put the suspension back together!

    Oh, and I forgot a couple of things. Picked up the suspension from Computrack boston a few weeks ago and also got the Woodcraft rearsets!

    Current crash to track day ratio wasn't high enough?

    Prismatic surprised me this time. When I did your yellow wheels I didnít really care for the way it flowed and was less than impressed with the results. Their black is....well....black (theyíd have a hard time screwing that up). The wrinkle black is really nice (as you saw on my exhaust shields). But that silver came out mint. The hue and amount of metal flake looked to be spot on to factory. Since Iím planning on being the next owner of that bike why donít you drop the frame and case covers off to me.....

    I'm very happy with the silver as well. I went through about 10 swatches of various silvers (they have a ton of different silver options) until I settled on that one.

    Honestly, I have the thing basically down to the frame I'm just too lazy to have it powder coated right now (paint is still in decent shape). Case covers are hardened NRC covers

    Big news day today. Got the engine back in the bike this weekend, added the new rear sets, and re-installed the suspension and freshly powder coated swing arm. Went to start the bike and fired right up! Such a good feeling hearing that sound after an engine teardown.
