Thanks TW, great advice.
Question on the rim, what is this and do I need it?

Rim lock. I havent had one on in, well, forever.
You may want to ask about oil next.
Oil? In the rim?
Oil for motor… Rim lock is for preventing tire spin on rim when you honk it ferociously.
A little attempt at humor, oil threads being a bit contentious and all.
I know, but was compelled to play with my best poker face... I wish he could ride that thing now and not have to wait what must seem like forever because when he once gets on it I fear it may be the grounds for a divorce. Or he may perish from an overstimulated pleasure center in his brain.
We talking primary, motor or gearbox? ATF? ZDDP? How bout an oil seal for your clutch rod?
I prefer regular slip-on loafers for riding comfort.
Reclining seats here & vibrating heated grips.... Well heated anyway.
I always leave those out. Replace with a taper head bolt to keep water out.
......and find a brake caliper that does not need work ($$$$) (imho)
I saw your post on Britbike.com... Buy a good one that does not need added work (EDM) I have bought off that seller though and he was great.
Finally got the cabinet working today. Just about ready to paint.
I can’t believe how much dust this cabinet leaks out. I’m going to have to caulk most of this cabinet and I absolutely need better lighting.
If you are not already, you MUST wear a quality face mask to avoid any congestion of the media dust. (silicosis etc, glass bead is little different)
Thanks, I do wear a mask, but I’m going to try and seal it up better than it is. I had dust all through the house.
It do have a way of permeating into everything for miles around.
Typically, they have a place to connect a shop vac to keep the box generally clear, but that stuff will eat the vacuum cleaner up after a few uses...
I think from now on when I need to blast something, I’ll put the cabinet in the driveway and close the garage door. My shop was a mess. I like a clean shop and mine was filthy.
All clean now...
Ok...NOW I’m ready for paint...
I recall that tranny cradle frame having MUCH tougher coating than the swingarm, looks like a common thing...
Interesting, yes, that is really tough
