Cowboy Engineering

Have been running into many issues with my fork swap. One has been that the steering stem on the 945 is 13mm ID and the SH is 17mm ID. My very important radar detector mount needed trimmed to fit the smaller ID of the 954 stem. Since I don't own a lathe I did this with my drill press and angle grinder. Can't fix the orientation, just a wanabe cowboy.

Hhaa cool!
I've made several bit holders to use mine as a lathe and polisher. From time to time have to retrue the chuck but it has saved me a small fortune in machine work on my conversion to gsxr forks and zx10 wheels!!!
Hey it's great to be a redneck and a cowboy!!!
