Only had a few hours in the workshop today as my back is a bit chronic...

Tapered bearings are going in as they are much better then balls.
Using the 'Kendo' bearing puller to fit the bearing seat into the headstock.

Bottom bearing race fitted - still needs to be greased before final assembly.
Image

All greased up, fitted and nipped up - feels nice
Image

Top clamp cleaned up and refitted

With a fair wind my carbs might be ready to pick up from the vapour blasters!

Not done much over the last week or so as my backs still been playing up. Then I went riding around Scotland for a long weekend (Just to sort my back out of course....)

Anyway, picked my carbs up and they now look too new to use on the bike...
So I'm going to put on another set of carbs or bodies.. :oops

Oh and I left my cam cover at the blasters so waiting for that to be posted back...
:eek
