Installed foot peg lowing bracket (I manufactured myself). Having a little problem with foot shift lever, too high now and cannot adjust any lower or it will hit the frame before shifting into 1st gear. I may heat it up and put a slight bend down in it. New handle bars and grips coming UPS today.

Ordered a fork brace and oil filler cap from Eagle Mike. Judging by my last experience, I will probably have them by Monday.

Installed the new bars and grips. The old bars were like 31 1/2" end to end, new ones are 34 1/2 Renthals. Major difference. With the pegs lowered and wider bars I have more control and feel a lot more in control
