Thumb Thanks.

Thank you for your perspective. The bolt-on option certainly might be a little easier. Tapping holes in the motor - I suppose one had better do it right the first time.

The sleeves are tapped and go thru the motor. The rear mounts get drilled and tapped when you line up the engine/box/swingarm to your liking. All the original engine covers still fit too but you need to move the coils a few mm.

Raises the front up about 30mm.Overlap on shaft/final drive is reduced by about 5-8 mm.
I have touched the RH head down on a few occasions as I'm not much of a hanger offer....( maybe I need a set of Continental )
We tried out the welding method on a stuffed frame but decided the bolt in one would do as racer may go back on road one day....
