Hello Brothers! i'm back to report to you how the moving ahead is going!
The time is accelerating again and again..No rush but that's how I feel the time around, then i stop and have meditative analysis of the conditions..

So let's go to look at some work..

one week before i installed a sight tube..
Installed new wheel bearings , seals
installed front end with BRP submount

i ordered 22mm dust seal and took the full speedo mechanism off ...

My good old friend ground out new collars for me

I cleaned the frame

BRP submount and front end

installed hot grips with koso adjuster and scott grips

HDB handguards

My Xr has another master cylinder which I think is from TDM or other..So I relocated one hole for HDB switch holder installation and tapped the hole.

At this week I've been busy following

Installing new bearings not OEM but i think better than old ones)

Next it was fixing some issue like swingarm linkage frictions..
I tried to fix it with a very slim chrome stainless steel plate about 0.25 mm
Also i bought new linkage in nice condition on ebay, my one was eaten.

all was greased..

After that I had a chance to install KTM fan with therm switch..
I wanted to make it simple but made it difficult))) I cut old brackets from body and made new ones from alu plate and welded them on.

For the switch i found a good solution in this forum. I used a trail tech adapter.

I found time for the tank bracket! Thanks and big respect to Hodakaguy for the idea and work on it! I used this solution and built the same one from stainless steel metal..

bushings and washers was made from poliuretan

Installing new hi performance thermostat ordered from xr's only
and silicone hoses kit

THANKS FOR LOOKING! To be continued...
Destiny in Your Hands, Freedom in Our Hearts!
