Slipped the tubes off the GSX for a rebuild. You know seals and shine. Looking to do 2 inch plug end extension too. Working on it in my mind.
Slipped off ok, stinky oil slurping slowly groundward. Had no idea and 3 of the 4 parts needed on each are available. Ordered. Pete plodded through the numbers. The other part in 3 minutes was ordered from North Carolina. Simple enough.
Tubes we shiny with a light spotting between the trips and the seals. Steel wool took that off. All else buffed and cleaned. Ran the wheel on the lowers after a light 2000 grit sanding. Nice enough, no concours here for the Winter Scrambler.
Stand is a little tippy with no fronts on, sat the wheel on the stand for some extra weight. Now to find that machinist to turn off the plug extensions. Should be an easy gig, and not into the 550 for new tubes from Frank yet. Tiny fork tubes so there are few options.
Back off now and let that settle, never know when an ide will pop into your cranium and solve a few issues.
Fling some French in my mug Frank, let it froth too.
