what diesel you get???
So for my real reason, Has anyone else that you know of done your mod? Ive only come across swapping the stem on springers and yours.
well Im about to be balls deep in the swap.
I took a bit of a leap of faith and read your writeup 100 times, came up with a plan and got a neck in the mail from a machinist i got a hold of on ebay. Measurements are good so im just waiting for the right weekend. I live in a travel trailer so space is even more limited than your apartment lol. Im not going to put a drill press on the bike because i believe that the cut neck on the honda needs to be a straight cut yes, but since the parts are all going into the machined neck, not worth the time. Not to mention i dont have drill press. I figure with a portaband i can cut it with a 16th of square.
I also am going to have the neck in the freezer, i got it to shrink a .002 so that will help in pressing it. I have some scrap sheet metal to fill in the bottom of the cast neck. races and cups to install and then a 4" over springer. I cant wait.
I may be fucking shit up, or not but either way i thank you for your time in writing that write up. At first i was like fuck, i dont get it, something isnt adding up, but actually it is all there if you read carefully and that will keep the ducks from trying it so, well done.
Ill post my stuff on here eventually but if anyone gives a fuck ill post on my instagram as it happens @themandoozle
