tank

If there is enough interest i can get a batch remade. I need to check about cost though and material.

That tank goes of my enduro bike that i am completing......for the last 3 years....

Dependent on price and timing, potentially me too.

HPN did and does welded subframes, but they do not recommend them if you like to take the kitchen sink going riding

who knows his tank and his origin?

and an other example of dual swingarm with single shock

Sorry, nothing much to report. I live in Mexico and this bike is up in the US until I can finish it. I've ordered all the electrical bits and pieces, and just need to get some time off to fly home and install everything. It's killing me though, being away from the thing for so long.

Ahem...actually it runs real strong. Spencer had it so close to running on his last trip, that once I snuck into his shop, it only took a few hours to get it running!

The only complaints I have so far is...It could use new tires, they did not last as long as I had hoped, and I wish he had put heated grips on her (it's been getting pretty cold lately!)

It's 16 degrees here today Spencer, Spend a few minutes on your tan today would ya, just for those left behind, you know.

Really looking forward to the end of this build

+1 on the flipped rear brake, I never understood why I don't see that more often on the G/S

Very nice build!

First off, great build, nicely done

going back a few pages I saw this question and as best I could tell it went unanswered.

If I am remembering correctly (it has been a while) there is one threaded hole in the bottom of the block that is a through hole that needs a dab of sealant to keep it from seeping oil. If memory serves it would be the position opposite where the red one is shown above (front right corner). My best guess is that is why they painted one red.

Yup- the one across from it (same length) is the one that gets the sealant since it's open on the inside. I suppose they could have painted the skid plate instead.

As for the flathead screw, there aren't many good alternatives. In M6 CSK you're going to have 4mm allen heads as an alternative, which are IMO prone to stripping. You can get Pozi, which is OK but prone to loading up with debris, and maybe T30 which would be OK but also prone to loading up. You have to remember this thing is going to be sliding across rocks and logs so I'd expect the fastener heads to be packed with stone grit and bark. A single slot is easier to clean out.
