First Start Up!!
« on: January 13, 2021, 08:01:20 PM »
Thanks to Chuck and the countless guys on here for answering all my questions, making parts, and collecting lots of info of which I would never have gotten here without. Thanks guys!  Still have the tail to finish off, but I got to take it for a spin today. Can’t wipe the smile off my face. It has been a long time dream to build an rd400.

Economy cycle steering damper. I was able to tap the lower triple for a really clean install.

Thanks guys, a day in and my brain is still flying!  After a few rides, it seems to be calming down into a sound I can terrorize my gated community with.  Someone has to be that guy.
