When it came time to get the road worthy done for the Daytona, the bike shop picked up that the steering stop was damaged. And by damaged, we mean absolutely fucked. Naturally it had to be fixed. And what better way than doing it DIY style. Time to get to work.
To start off, we need to get access to the steering stop so we can measure up our replacement stop.
Now we know the extent of the damage, it was time to come up with a fix. There are numerous ways to do it, but we found the easiest way is by getting a steel bracket made up that mounts onto the existing intake bolt holes. This is where it comes in handy to have boilermakers as mates.
So thats it for the steering stop side of things. The bike is coming along nicely now. Next up we’ll be installing and cleaning up a titanium Akrapovic slip on that we purchased second hand. Should sound wicked and save a lot of weight!
Keep it OnTheBackWheel people.
