    Fork brace

    There's a slight wander I noticed when riding. It became more noticeable without the front fender and that sheet metal brace. Decided to help the front axle from doing all the work. Bolt pattern turned out to be 175mm x 59mm. M6 tapped into brace. Will see how it makes the front end feel.

    Since you can bend that fender brace by hand, I don't think it adds any stability.

    Maybe something else is going on. I'd like to see if the bracing makes the forks "work" better. God knows they need all the help they can get. I'm also experiencing a pull to the left. I've played with the rear wheel alignment and it has not helped.

    All wired up. Not bad for a late night $20 eBay buy.

    Left rearset

    Fixed the right rearset and now the left rearset started getting my OCD going. So spent some time measuring and fixed the footpeg "stagger" by moving up the footpeg about "1/2 to 5/8".

    Mounted. Had to remove material from the engine case to clear. Also filed down the rearset to clear frame welds. Pegs are more symmetrical now.

    Hmmnnn maybe not. Lol about 1/2” higher and 1/4” further forward at the peg pivot in relation to the swingarm. Think I need to rotate the 2nd mounting points about 20 degrees along the axis of the big bolt.

    Thanks! I'd have left the bike alone if I didn't crash! Well that's not really true either. lol

    I'm thankful for you forum veterans on getting my bike back up running faster. Y'all did the heavy lifting. Most of the upgrades were inspired to "fix" shortcomings.
