During this week Dave installed the wiring harness, the Yamaha indicators and made brackets for the indicators and rear seat rest.

The caliper adaptor bracket finally arrived from Schneider KTM in Germany

But there is a problem ! It amazes me that you can pay top dollar or in this case Euro 88 of hem for an adaptor from a professional business only to find that it doesn't fit out of the box!!!

You can see the top of the caliper adaptor won't seat over the bolt hole unless a little filing is done. Thankfully it is an easy fix and at least the rest of the product is well finished and robust.

Next problem, the adaptor is for a 320 mm rotor and I have a 300!
I went down to see the local KTM dealer but they had no stock of 320's, however I was in luck one of the salesmen overheard my enquiry and caught up with me at the door. He had a 320 rotor in his spares box at home and would be prepared to sell it to me. The next morning we met up and I purchased a nice second hand 320 KTM rotor. We were back in business.

Here you can see the Vapour speedo cable pending attachment.
