Looks fantastic! Really like those Daytona forks, which I understand have upgraded internals as well to match an upgraded shock. No wonder you can't get off it & coming into your summer now, nice

Hi Charlie ,
Sorry taken so long to reply not that sharp with the Lap top,
I had no proublems with the speedo, Head set bearings all the same as the TBS just cut steering looks off and reconfigered new ones to suit Just make sure the doner bike has cable drive speedo . yr bike sounds as though you are getting it pretty sorted , I went down the road of drilling the vacum port hole on the slide from 2.5 to3.mm an heaver spring in the search of a bit more mid ranger but resently got the apoxy out an went back to 2.5 an lighter spring , an Ive drpped the needle an leaned it off a touch seemed had better result still playing with the mapping got it pretty good but tring to get some time to dino ,got aCo2 plug coming to weld in so i get a better
feed back wuld mind put the TPS set up like IrlMike but just not up to speed in that department .What was involved with yr throtel mod

Cheers Ussh
