    Bike is looking good man. I just put on my 6 over forks. Makes it feel like Iím almost done (definitely not tho). Have you figured out what kind of oil line fittings work on that tank? Iím running the same setup. I bought some that I thought would fit and they donít thread on.

    Yeah, the fittings that these come with are 1/8Ē NPT I canít remember the thread per inch but I want to say 24. My plan is to find some 90* that are an AN flare on the other side. These ones are goofy. But will work with rubber if you go that route.

    Thinking this is where I want the bung for the tank.

    With my new 4” over fork tubes in I decided to brake down the forks and likely will be shaving them.

    I had to make a fork seal puller. I thought I’d share the photos if anyone was wondering how to get these out.

    It utilizes a bolt, 3 nuts, a shaved down washer. A washer to keep the bolt in place and some scrap with holes for leverage.

    Previous owner broke an Allen key in one caliper bolt and stripped the other beyond all hope. I managed to cut the one out which had a busted wrench in it and had to drill the stripped one to save damaging the fork tube.

    So now I am at the point where I need to figure out what I want to do front brake wise. I think I’ll leave the caliper ears on the left hand fork lower so I can run brakes if I want and shave everything else down. Still undecided so far.

    That’s a good idea for a fork seal puller. Mine were trash and came out real easy. Really glad I decided to replace them. I chose no front brakes and shaved everything off. Might have been a mistake but we’ll see how no front brakes go when she’s up and running. Worst case scenario I just find an extra fork leg and shave and polish it, keeping the caliper tabs.

    Bryan, for sure. That’s why I kinda want to leave the ears on the one leg and run a caliper wheel just in case it gets a little to squirrely and I just can’t keep my wrist out of it I can throw a brake on

    Been really slow going the last few days. I’m basically waiting on my custom seat and fender to get here for mock up.

    Sliders are so easy to swap you could shave both and look good while keeping a spare or pair with caliper lugs on the shelf. The nice thing about 35mm forks is they're cheap and plentiful.
