    Swing-arm inspection

    Spoke to Mike today at PPM Custome Cycles. Sent him pictures of what I thought his company made a few years ago and he said the AAA swingarm kit I have went for $4,700 dollars...Hell yeah! :D

    Well, Spiegler sent me the wrong line made 12 inches over. They sent me a line from ABS manifold to master cylinder, made 12 inches over. That was a major screwup. So, last night I tried to make it fit anyway, seeing as how I wanted to get something done. So, I did a roundabout then a loop and installed it. Called them this morning and they're sending out the correct one from ABS manifold to the rear caliper. Here are some pics of the incorrect one that I installed.
    On another note, I did get the bike to run last night after about five hours of electrical work.

    Brakes work, to my surprise, it only took about 5 minutes to bleed the system. I rather the new speaker rear brake line underneath the 12 inch over swingarm 95% of the way. Drilled some holes underneath and used plastic keepers in the holes with stainless steel screws and heavy duty nylon circles to keep it in place.
