Default More Progress

Almost done with the seat. I have two bolts to install under the seat, then I can stretch the cover tight and it will be ready.


CDI and Coil mounted up.Just waiting for a oem protector and mount for the CDI.



New steering head bearings installed with the triples. Bottom bearing is a tapered bearing and top bearing is a older design roller bearing, but the top bearing mounted up tight with low drag and smooth action. There is a kit to covert the top bearing to a tapered bearing but it requires machining the stem slightly. The oem design seems very strong so I decided to go with it. I know this bearing is used on several other suzuki models. The design is a little strange and the inside machining inside the top of the steering head looks two races but they are not removable races just machined surfaces into which the new races(roller ball or tapered) are inserted.



I think the frame turned out nice. Here are some shots of the frame.

Default Triples





The top triples have rubber mounts. I ordered some Protaper replacement rubber bar mounts that should be here tomorrow.

Thanks! After I get this one done, I think I am going to do what you did and buy a new gasser in the spring.

Default New Pro Taper Rubber Mounts

I decided to go to the bigger bars on the RM. I was able to find ProTaper Mounts with Pro Taper Replacement Cone Kit.





Pro Taper Bar Pad




Everything bolted right up and I torqued the bolts to 27 foot pounds per the protaper instructions. The suzuki manual has a spread of torque values that are acceptable to adjust the feel of the rubber cones. I will post an update later.


Top


Bottom


Partially bolted up with new throttle, clutch and front brake cables.
