    Looks good, are you running an fzr400 swinger on there? Other than the top shock mount it looks like how I did mine.

    yeah, the only thing i shopped out was the frame sandblast and the machine shop did the rebore and a simple surface skim and line bore to the cam bearing journal head/rocker box as i used a mismatched set.(something that apparently cant be done !!!!), spent lots of hours making the f/glass stuff and fiddling with bits like the tank mounts and petcock relocation ,polishing switchgear ,electrical mods etc etc its a long list , but everything fits very well and most of the parts used are unaltered stock items from other bikes that can be easily replaced if damaged etc.

    Never been said a mismatched rocker/head cant be put together.........Because the factory line bored the holes in the head/rocker/cases, pitting mismatched no's together will create oil leaks unless your lucky and get a set that is very close.........

    Perhaps Poochube thought your vid was to much XS650 PORN
