Yeah, me too. If I'd known it was going to be so extensive I'd have taken better notes. I got hung up by backordered swingarm bushings and steering head bearings. I could have gotten them somewhere else but didn't think of it at the time but the rest of the bearings are coming from Bearings Direct. The worst is the bearing in the sprocket carrier - $98 from KTM and $4.95 from Bearings Direct.

Anyway, I got the frame on and I'm pulling the other systems together and I'll update more next week. The goal is end of next week since I've got a week with the GF on vacation so it's extended shop time.

No paint - Revit wants me to document our trip to Labrador for the 2010 catalog so the bike can't have too crazy a paint job. That's a relief actually.

So more photos soon.
