executed my first modification today .. went pretty well!!

actually i was forced into it when i fell over :'(






so yup, fixed my toe shifter. had to drill through the shifter arm, get a bolt, backing nut, washers, and capping nut. slid the old rubber sleeve off the old toe shift (that was a pain) and slid it on to the bolt.

had some problems with the bolt hitting the shift rod, but it might have been because i had over shortened the shift rod itself when re mounting. problem seemed to resolve itself with remounting and adjusting that length.

couldn't resist some glamour shots using my dad's camera :)

messing with the white balance



my helper for the repair :)




looking forward to some REAL mods. soon ! wanna get new springs, fork oil, possibly some rearsets, chopped exhaust.... etc etc etc

Matt,

I've seen that mod/fix before. On here, I think. lol Looks good though!!

Glad your ok!! What happened, that made you "fall"?

Finally got work. I should be off on weekdays till about 4pm. Need to hook up, and go riding again.

haha, yeah, pretty common mod.. :D actually nothing made me fall, i was stopped on the side of the road and just lost my balance. got a tiny bit of rash on my rear body work and the toe shift broke.

we should definitely meet up, havent been riding too much because of school, but hope to start riding a lot this summer.

ill send you a PM in about 3 weeks and maybe we can meet up for some riding!
