Today have I test mounted the new exhaust, it looks to fit perfect. I have now packed down again and will sent it coating tomorrow.
I will properly not be able to install it before I take the bike out from the storage room in April? I`m afraid of damage it when it move the bike out :)

These weekend have I balanced my wheels, last winter I replaced the tires without balancing the wheel. I have had some vibration when I have driven... not so heavy that I have done something with it... hopefully is that away now... will be interesting to drive when the season start and see how they perform.
I also did some easy polishing on the rims.

Today have I installed washers on the front fork suspension between the progressive spring and the top cups.
I have missed these part...

I also took some measurement on how much the progressive spring is pushed down when there is not weight on the spring (lifted up the frame in the front).

I have never liked the front fender, the way its mounted to the bracket with 4 bolts and nuts....
I found a new fender on eBay from a kz750 1981 model, I have sanded the fender primed and painted it with new black color.
Sprayed some body spray (dry) to avoid corrosion in the inside of the fender.

I absolutely liked the results, much more clean design "follow" the wheel better...

One task left on the fender I need to make some more space for the brake lines, so they don`t damage the paint when I use the bike.

I've never seen a fender like that with fasteners on top. so then I checked partzilla & sure enough, that's how some were done. weird.
