If i moved those blocks that are on the top clamp inwards / closer together,
then i could fit another arm going forward on the outside of the blocks on the top clamp, then have two arms attaching the MD reader plate instead of one of them.

Whats ya think, two brackets or one would do ?

Par for the coarse mate, making stuff takes time, especially starting from scratch. It looks the goods. It looks like a reasonably solid mount. Be interested to see how it handles vibration and shock being on a single rod. How are you going to stop it from trying to pivot.

I am taking forward steps, so all good here. Told my wife i would have it back together by the end of the month.

Come on Doug, she knows that your bullshitting her. But I bet she's sick of Parkin her car in the pissing down rain whilst your bikes take up the garage. You best be planning on taking her and the kids on a good holiday.

It won't take long now mate.

Ended up going twin rods, was thinking it may vibrate, make it harder to read would be my guess.

I'll get some pics tomorrow, makes it easier then try explain what i am thinking to stop it from pivoting.

Got a nice package from Service Honda today too.

The blue thingy is a capacitor Seany.

Betta bikes rewired the bike for me back in 2004.

Hopefully get to do a ride when i get back from the next hitch,
then load the bike up and off to Condo.
