Soo i have had to Design a HeadSet Spacer for my new forks to fit, as the new taper bearing for the old forks dosnt fit the steering shaft on my new forks so i have designed this using Onshape, I have Ordered some Alliminium Tube which is 56mmOD 32mmID 12mmWall 200mm in lenth for £15 next thing todo is 3Dprint a Prototype then test fit then get my freind's Lathe going and make one out of the Alliminium
My forks arrived today
Please welcome my WR426F forks
They are in decent nick for £150 they have Adjustable Compression Hardness on the bottom and Adjustable Dampening on the top, Bearings seam to be a perfect fit all i got todo is but a spacer under the bottom of the bottom taper bearing

I cant belive how fantastic all this is looking i really hope mine looks as good at this once its done.
@liquid-snake Make sure you have bought the correct crank bearings as you can get them slightly too thick (I have made this mistake in the past and my cases wouldnt close due to the bearings being to thick) heres a link to the ones i have used in my engine rebuild
ebay mate heres the link if its allowed it cost £110 but it beats paying £355 from MSP
Well i have made some more orders list below
Head race bearings
Linkage bearings and bushes
Rear swing arm bearings
Frunt wheel and Rear wheel bearings
in total £186.59
Heres a list with everythink i have bought since i started the project back in july including the above..

Well iv owned this Dtr for 8-9years when i got it. It needed alot of work i got it back on the road and used it for green laning up the lakedistrict also for getting out on, after loosing my job i had to take it off the road..
So im going to start getting my dtr back on the road, its been sat in the back garden for 3+years uncovered.
i managed to get it to start last month and that got me thinking about getting it back on the road as you can imagine there is alot todo il post some photos below of its current state...
Im going to rebuild the engine once again with a new top end, new crank bearings and a new Carb new exhaust and all the cosmetics and brakes etc... but i want to convert it into a Supermoto style il upload photos along the way
(Dose anyone know any 2-Stroke tuners for when i have rebuilt the engine so i can get it running sweet as a nut?)
