Stripped.... The fat lady is very close...

I fired up the engine this afternoon. What a lovely sound. The sound of no grinding. Pulled the clutch in and no grinding. Just that wonderful sound of a boxer firing away. In fact the engine sounds better than the one I took out.

Sonny came around and set the swing arm for me. He has been a champ right through this whole rebuild. He was still on a high from his 600km ride yesterday.

The bike is fully back together. The fat lady has not yet sung as I have not taken it out onto the road. I will go for short spin tomorrow after work.

I will have to revisit the driveshaft bolts as I did not loctite them. But that is easy enough to do.
