Installed a Brembo reservoir today on my Brembo RCS 19. Also well under way prepping these Daytona throttle bodies for Bonneville use. Got them all torn down today. Stripped some butterfly screws, but am figuring it out one step at a time. What would working on bikes be without some stripped bolts?!

Got the engine stripped down tonight in less than 3 hours with a highly experienced mechanic buddy. No real hang ups, just followed the directions in the manual step by step. I would rate this a 7 out of 10 for difficulty. It's not hard, it just takes attention to detail in regards to following the steps.

Next up is sending off the heads and cylinders to have some magic worked. Also going to send the engine covers and valve cover to powdercoating. Fingers crossed I am able to get this thing running before it gets warm outside.

This thing is awesome. Going to be looking into wide 17s this winter myself, although the more budget friendly variety

Those forks are killer. I'd love to set those up on my bike.
