Finally got round to riser plates:




Also changed the fixings over to stainless A2-70.
I now get about 17mm more foot room and only lose about 10 to 12mm leg room.
I have also rotated the clip-ons further forward & the combination means I can ride for about 3 hours and get off relatively able to move my aged hips.
Yes! There will be some de-burring and painting…dunno when but it could happen.

Some more
Removed useless bobbins as my rear paddock stand was too narrow.
Fitted short bolt and spacer through back of shark fin.
Modified rear paddock stand cups - cut down and drilled for captive high tensile screws. M6 stainless button head screws fitted after stand use - to preserve thread.
Cut larger hole around cover under bottom yoke and removed one cover bolt - to enable my Micron front stand to fit.
Bent side stand prong so as to fall in the gap between gear lever and footrest.
And here’s some pretty pictures to prove it - don’t ask about the side stand captive puck - I don’t know where it came from and I haven’t shortened the through-bolts yet but, I did have to trim the belly pan to suit it:












Some of this will get tidied up and de-rusted…..at some stage.

BACK-TRACKING……….

Removed footrest jack up plates (plenty comfortable but boots were hard to move on more-steeply angled footrest serrations)

Removed dual check valve from clutch - reverted to single, as standard (I rarely get out of 3rd gear on my ‘fun’ roads, so don’t have to bang down the ‘box more than a gear - it did work well, when I tried it, but my riding just doesn’t warrant it)

Refitted inlet flap - the PCIII was set up with it fitted - removing it created an unwanted flat-spot.

Fitted clear screen.
Removed clear screen (piece of Ama*on Ch*nese sh*t)
Refitted dark screen

Replaced rear brake clevis bush with a stainless bolt in a copper bush (the original aluminium one had broken and was only located on one side)

Fitted additional heat sink fins to reg/rec (planning to replace it with a MOSFET one in the near future)

Got an MOT

3 steps backwards, 1 step forwards eh?

I’ve been there and done that on a few bikes.

Fitted the Carmo series CARR5925-SERIE MOSFET reg/rec - temporarily wired in as I’m still waiting for the right connectors:
…which gives a steady 14:06V at tickover - with lights on:
…indicated somewhat differently on the dash:
As a bonus I made a heatsink for the rear brake cylinder:
Not sure if it works as it’s cold today & the pads need deglazing.

Next:
My own cobbled-up T12 stator cooling set-up.

Reg/rec take 2
Made a bracket and mounted it under the seat.
Proper connectors arrived and wired via a 30A fuse.
Had to relocate tip-over switch and 2 x 30A fuse holder.
Once complete it would not start - large oops moment - I had mounted the tip-over switch upside down on its new bracket grrrrr. Now getting 14.4 V with lights off at tickover.

Now for the poor-man’s T12 stator cooling:
Drilled the 24x1.5 hydraulic blank @ 30 degrees - only broke one 2mm drill bit in the process but got there in the end. The other side I drilled and tapped m6 in readiness for the dowty/hose tail banjo which is due next Friday.
The blank fitted like a charm - new viton seal fitted and the orientation of the oil spray is at about 12 o’clock.
I dropped the oil tank and cut the cooler hose to fit the 12x6x12 reducing tee.
Ran the stator cooling hose ‘s’ shaped upto the fan then cable tied it into fairing bracket and down to the clutch slave, blanked it off so that it’s all ready to go when the fitting arrives.
Total cost of this set up is about £23 - well worth if it saves the stator.









Anyone want an OEM reg/rec with optional fins - ideal for toast :-)

Finished though may change the zpp bolt to a stainless button head that I’ve drilled.

And so it goes on:
Checked for oil leaks after the above stator cooling mod - all dry.
Removed top yoke and electrical part of ignition switch- found that the ball bearings were stuck so freed those then cleaned all the contacts - all showed signs of light scoring - and re tensioned the contact springs.
Set forks in yokes to 4 rings showing - in an effort to speed up the steering to - somewhere near - my 7R
Removed puck from side stand.
Next:
Drop rear ride height by 2mm - if reducing the front makes it a bit lairy.
