Thanks! Here in Michigan we are having warmer temps but non stop rain. Par for the course the temps are to drop into the 20's creating an state wide ice rink

Hey Roxy! I know how you feel. When the front went through last night, I was sure it was gonna take out our 120 yr old oak trees they were bending so far with the wind.
Woke up today to below freezing temps, 40 mph winds and snow squalls. So from 61 degrees to 21 degrees in 24 hours.

Man Spring cannot come soon enough.!

I'm slowly doing things to the bike, to kind of scratch the winter motorcycle itch. But I could tinker with it all I want and nothing comes close to riding.

Got a new rear tire mounted yesterday, PR3, to finally match the PR3 on the front.
I also started putting SVRP 2.5in clip on's on it. Danimal, I know you had a GSXR front so your master cylinder is different, but did you have any problems with fitment of that on the clip on? Mine seems to hit the riser portion and doesn't want to rotate down very far, maybe I just need to play with it more. The brake switch plug is in the way too.

Not sure what you're asking Beet.
SV Racing's clipons are just clones (he bought their tooling when they went under) of SWATT clipons. I have the 3.5" SWATTs on my SV.
Are you referring to master cylinder clearance to the riser?

Lemme look a minute for a pic...

Yes, the clearance between the master cylinder and the riser block is causing problems. I posted over on SVR, hopefully someone that has done this with a stock master cylinder will chime in.

Beet,

Kill two birds with one stone.

Replace the front brake lines with quality lines, and get a fitting for the MC with a 45 degree bend, which will give you the clearance you need (or cut off that tab)

Found a couple of pictures online from a trip I made late Summer last year to the area around Deal's Gap. I am sooo sick of Winter.

It would be a beautiful bike! I am hoping to make a ride or two if you guys plan some. Last yr my rides consisted of the 2 hour round trip loop to work and back. A couple of "happy" rides around this area but nothing I would consider a great ride. We are in the midst of a winter storm right now .... will winter ever end.

Maybe you can show me around the UP.

I have to admit that I have avoided the Michigan/Wisconsin area for many years, after some exploratory stuff there in the 80's. Mostly have headed South/Southest into twisty roads in PA, WV, TN, KY etc.

I do remember there being some beautiful roads along the lakes. I was thinking of a weekend that way in the Spring.
