    190 refers to the spacing between forks. The thing costs $104 brand new, no point in machine work.

    That sucks donkey balls. Sorry.

    Just to make you feel better, I think I might have run my practically newly rebuilt aprilia engine without oil for about 5 minutes. I win the stupid contest.

    Need picture not price lists. The stripped thread is easy fix, 'too short' hmmmm, not so easy depending on wall thickness though it's do-able, 2.5mm either side

    Yes, the stripped thread is an easy enough fix. Changing the spacing would require a precision cut/drilled piece of billet aluminum to replace the bridge section. Not sure what you are talking about wall thickness for, there is no way to machine this wider.

    Hopefully there was a lot of assembly lube. I've run a couple jeeps upside down and they have survived a couple of minutes of no oil pressure, so maybe you get lucky?

    Oh, it's the 3 piece one! piece of piss to make a new centre section, doesn't even look like the high dome version for 19" wheels I guess it's the engineered plastic? Wall thickness refers to how thick the pieces are that clamp to fork top. If thick enough you can offset bore so finished size will just about 'witness' on the inner piece but the outer will be 2.5mm thinner. That actually isn't a high precision piece, it relies on clearances between pieces tp line up properly. You probably have +/-0.005" tolerance on bolt holes at at best +0.005" / -0.002" on the fork clamps

    It is all aluminum and the bridge section is raised not flat. Quite honestly it doesn't matter any more. If I want to run the twisty roads I'll use the Yamaha FZ1 I bought last week.

    LOL, what do they call those owl eyes? I think the only additions on my list are a set of givi side bags and a taller windshield
