A couple of days ago I weighted the bike.
Front wheel 72kg. Rear wheel 84kg. Gas tank almost empty.

Total: 156kg.

Did a few visible things such as hand guards and blinkers at the front:


(and ooohhh yeah, they suck. Will be replaced soon)

LC4 master cylinder at the rear:


Longer sidestand:


And of course wire here, nylock nut there, etcetera.

Now I'm riding the thing until some suspension components arrive. The (very) limited lock-to-lock steering angle is a problem.

Due to the totally wrecked suspension the bike behaves like a bouncing ball on steroids, but steering and curve-holding is pretty neutral.

Very fun bike to ride! I think we will become good friends.



I'll take a few new pictures soon.
