The amount of info just for the 1999 is 1/3 thicker then the Haynes with all years combined. Breakdown of every single component. The pictures are much crisper and easier to understand... Still in black and white though. My only gripe is the wire schematic is no where near as good as Haynes.

750 SRAD Triple came in today. My first tip for those doing a front swap is, alot of triples on eBay are listed fitting both 600 750 SRAD. This is misleading. The 750 has upside down forks and the 600 does not. I had to order another set because the first set came in and has 45 mm openings obviously for the 600. 50 mm is what's needed for the top. The 750s came in today, and I still have to ship the 600s back.

The top triple had black carbon fiber glued to it. I removed it with a putty knife and started sanding the glue off. I'll probably keep sanding with higher grits to get a Polish, to see how I like that.

Zorran's upper Bearing from TWF Racing fits like a champ. Mates up with the stem and Triple perfectly.

Polished yokes take a lot of work, but are so worth the effort. After I did mine, I sprayed the lower yoke with lacquer to prevent it corroding on winter salty roads.

Keep up the good work, I love a good build thread.

Some more stuff came in. It's a little out of order how I wanted to buy things but $46 bucks for the tire wheel rotor, sprocket drum, set bolts, all cushions, spacer, and bearings.

Wheel is straight, tire is a little worn on center. Even if the rest is needing replaced it'll be fun going through each part and analyzing what it does. For instance I had know idea there were cushions and what they did until yesterday.

2k epoxy primer on the triple.

I decided to go a different route. I tried it polished first, but since the industrial look appeals to me more, I went with flat black.

Yes, and my top yoke could do with the same treatment.

What product did you use?

I debated that for awhile. That's actually from summit racing, it's summit's name brand two part primer. I've been wanting to try it because it's cheap and had decent reviews. Since this is such a small spray project, I figured what is there to loose. But when available I recommend PPG

Default Swing Arm

Swing arm came in just now. When I get every thing sprayed, I'll migrate it to outside. It's starting to come together. I'm starting to feel the itch to get it done, but gotta keep my patience though... I am getting tired of sanding.
