Cool Project in Progress

Well I've decided to make some changes over the off season to make things a little more comfortable for me. The first on the list was to change out my handlebars from the "32 Wide & Low Drag bars to "12 Bonanza Bars. The new bars are pretty much installed with the exception of the new brake line and the clutch cable. I stripped one of the banjo bolts(need a new one) and the clutch cable end that screws into the primary housing sheered off inside the housing. Well thankfully I was able to retrieve the broken piece out of the housing and now just waiting to hear back from JPCycle to see if they will swap me a new clutch cable or not. Here are a couple pics. Next I should be getting my tank and side panels back from paint & airbrushing.

Yea, I got good news from JPCycle, they said that the clutch cable sheering off like that is def. a manufacturing defect and are shipping me out a new clutch cable at no cost!!

I'll post up some more pics when I get my tank and side panels back from paint. Oh and yes those pics are small.... I took 'em with my phone, but I did finally found my USB cable for my camera so I should be in business for better pics!!!
