The picture wich show the brake lever ist not correct. You nied vor the brake lever two holes to fit. on the picture is only one hole and a hole for a brake cable, but the GTS has hydraulik brakes and clutch!!

Hi Arno. I am not sure what you mean, which of the photographs are you referring to. The levers are correct for the hydraulic clutch and brake and I have bled them and they do work ok. The handle bars that are shown in the photo are the original GTS bars, but I have since the photograph fitted the Lucas mounting and Renthal flat bars, but I have not positioned the levers and electrical switches until I have installed the bodywork to check for clearances.

I mean the pictures on ebay. The picture on page 17 of this thread are correct, but this are not the same as ebay.

Hi Arno, thanks for the info. I think the photos are generic and not specific to the model of bike. This is the advert for the GTS1000 brake lever and it looks the same. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Long-brake-cl ... SwxfNXNhkt . I think they go by the title of the article on eBay when they dispatch them. Sorry if I have misled anyone :(

Installing bodywork going well, I am having to make a few brackets here and there where they have been previously broken, but it is looking good. Hopefully lots of photos to see tomorrow.

OK here we go, I hope this isn't overload, but it is looking so good I couldn't stop taking photos. You will also see from the photos that my workspace has been "invaded" by a series of iron fence panels waiting for their next coat of paint. It is a grand daughter proof (we hope) fence to go around my Koi carp pond. :)

I smoothed out the welds on the lower wishbone before powder coating. :cheers:

Look at that lovely Wilbers shock :clap:

I even tried the luggage on to make sure there was plenty of clearance to the exhaust :D :clap:

Image

The gaps between the various panels seems to be ok.

I have actually got the front fender and the upper fairing on today, but haven't got any photos as it was too dark and I need the garage door open to get the light, but tomorrow I will post some more photos.
