arted to check out and build up.

Fitted fan motor to bracket.
Built up and fitted side stand.
Built up and fitted footpeg hangers. (I am replacing standard footpegs with alloy ones, just a personal thing and will keep standard ones in case want to refit @ later date.

Fitted fairing bolts to all brackets and finally fitted lower head bearing to bottom yoke and built up front fork assy.

Main reason for building up is to double check which bolts (in my bolt box) I will need to replace with stainless and to also check threaded compon

ents after powder coating. So far I've only found 1 threaded component which will need tap running through (side stand). All other threads have not been affected by powder coating, in fact feel a lot better having the additional covering taking up wear.

Will be continuing to build up tommorrow and will be going out to get stainless nuts & bolts.

Hi All,

Had a trip in the pissing rain to get stainless steel bolts today.

started changing bolts and straight away was impressed with the difference allen bolts make ( I remember I saw one of t

Changed all the bolts around swinger and started refitting all the brackets I'd had powder coated.

Always think its a shame how easily (although not as easily as some other makes) Honda's tarnish.

Well happy with the finish the powder gives, hope it lasts. Hi All,

Carried on fitting all the powder coated bits, only bits left not fitted bolt directly to engine. and as this is away being beutified have stored them safely away.

As some of you may have seen, was lucky to get top fairing

in far beter condition than mine on fleabay a few days ago.

Both mirror mounts are busted off, but I wasn't too concerned as am confident can be repaired.

But,

In order to repair properly, I need to set up correctly so mounted top fairing bracket and found its bent to F**K, don't know how I missed that b4 sending for powder coating, but powder coat man recons its pretty forgiving stuff which shouldn't crack if it needs bending about.

c.

Loads of prepping still to do but he says not to bother priming anything as will probably need to be redone. Something 2 do with 1pac vs 2pac.

Good couple of days apart from bolt bloke supplying me with 100mm bolts (40mm thread) when I asked for M6 x 40 (der) Laugh

Will go back tommorrow and change.

Not 100% happy that all brackets are totally in line, will wait for engine to be fitted to make last adjustments as mid section brackets bolt to engine block.

gs, but these are different design in so much as rather than having allen bolt to secure peg into bracket they just screw in.

NC30 prior to finding complete aftermarket rearsets. Cost £30 but seemed well made, looked good, more comfortable than round jobbies and good grip

Not a very good pic but...

^^ you can adjust the angle of pegs to suit yourself via the allen bolt

Interestingly though, I've just looked on Motrax's site and can't find them anywhere - wonder if they've withdrawn them for some reason think

btw If you do like them and look for some, the ones I got for the NC30 didn't mention NC30 fitment on the box but I did some research and found that the peg hole and width was common to another model of bike (prob a Honda) that they did mention on the box


[edit]
M&P have them on sale for £10 but mostly it seems they only have the rear pegs left but maybe one of the other Honda models pegs would fit
http://www.mandp.co.uk/productInfo.aspx?catRef=550707I had those on my 929 Kerm & agree they are very good.

The oem ones on the blade are rubber coated & I need it on mine as I can feel some vibes through the pegs; not bad, but enough to be aware & I guess it would be worse without the rubber.

smile I have a new top fairing brace in black but have the alloy one from a later model fitted; just think it looks much better.
