    while you got it all apart, probably give the frame a good review too. the kickstarter side front motor mount on the frame needs to crack, rear seat mount, where the swingarm bolt goes through on both sides, and the area up by where the steering stem mounts.

    Looking good Glorfindel....!

    On the Basket, while it has groves, it can be filed flat & smooth and used a few more years; no need for a billet basket yet.

    Don't worry about getting grease into the Caliper. Soak in Kerosene overnight and all the grease or hydraulic oil will dissolve. Also; this is an old trick used extensively by Brake re-builders since day one without issues.

    Frames only need gussets if heavily used, abused or cracked...I would not gusset unless needed.

    Ok, thx, i'll try to get rid of the groves.

    The frame dont have cracks so far, i will do a better inspection soon. It will not be abused since it will be used in trails, so thx again for the info, that will save me some $$$.

    Still waiting for my fitting to remove the pistons from the calipers.

    Next step is remove the engine and split cases! Will have to order the puller.

    Thx again!!!

    Sorry to say but you didn't need to go through the trouble of making that adapter to connect a hydraulic line to your caliper even though it looks trick.... You just need a short bolt & some sealing washers to plug the inlet hole than crack the bleeder valve & use a standard grease gun to push the pistons out. I've used this method to rebuild all 6 calipers on both my R's & it worked great.

    Grease or Hydraulic fluid is sometimes the only way to remove stuck pistons. :-)

    Way better now. I'll float the ground and put 150w full bridge reg/rec. I will put a small 7" long led light in front and a red one on the back.
