Having the week off allows me to get some garage stuff done. got this tree from mark at speed of cheese. for the weight conscious, i weighed them with all bolts on place. titanium on the old modified stock tree vs the stainless allens on the new tree.

still dropped about 4oz. which isnt a huge amount but something.
also, the new one is just beautiful.

the upper washer and nut on it is one I made for the old tree. although a stock rd nut or one mark makes will work with his.

In the first picture, what's the bottle from Santa Barbara? AC vinegar?

Clamp is simply gorgeous. Your headlight grill reminds me of the TY175 I had long ago; what's yours from?

it's a ty headlight of some sort.  was in the bottom of a bin of rz parts I bought like 10 years ago. there was a guy at barber that lost his mind trying to buy it off me, off the bike.  obviously he didn't convince me

If the little bars are solid (they look like they are) I believe it's a TY250 item. My 175 had bars that were half-round formed sheet metal

Gotta love a 25% weight reduction, how it looks is a bonus

On the first pic in the rearset thread, there is a lower triple with steering stem (on the left side)
That would definitely give a serious weight reduction. Some years ago, I looked into the MotoLanna triples for the SR500, and IIRC, they would be close to 2 lbs lighter than stock RD triples........
