The centerstand is already gone.
Will check this week if I will swap it to the other side.

Thanks for the suggestion  :clap:

Hi,

I don't pretend to be a structural engineer. But that seems a long way without cross frame support. Considering the original frame was hooped with two other welded cross members under the seat. Could be a bit twisty on the bends. Especially with the rear suspension on one side of the frame.

Getting closer to the DGR and nearly finished the bike.

Got the harnass in place and still need to rewire the batt since the new location request longer cables.
Made the mounts on the rearframe for the seat and also started the leather for the seat.

All fluids are refreshed, relays are in a box under the tank, airflowsensor relocated and the exhaust is done.
First kick and run was a huge succes. Just one click, no choke and running as a BMM K !!!

Complete rear is finished now, rear sets work, rearbrake, seat mounting, licenceplate location and rear/brakelight.

Front is nearly done, headlight is in place, fork rebuild and now awaiting the new brakelines to arrive and being installed.

Took some pictures during the process, see below the result.

Huge change on the steering geometry up front . . . looks a little scary . . .

I droped the fronkt for 5cms, another build from close to me did the same.
Drove the bike and the handling was still very nice, the corners are a bit wider now, still a nice handling and control on the bike.

If afterwards the handling isnt so nice, just lift the front up and where good to go.
