I have been rebuilding a FL400R Pilot and was on a site for those...Had the same type of BS from the site admin who think's he's the god of Pilots and acouple of his blind sheep...I scrapped the stock front end and had a Kaw front in on it...They said that couldn't be done...well it's done and works great!
Keep up with your project, the trolls have nothing better to do than be Internet brave and worldly stupid...maybe jealous of the project. It's your project not theirs...
Mark Twain: "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, dream and discover"....
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely and in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways totally worn out, shouting "Holy Crap, What a Ride!"
