Thanks guys.
My shed is traditional basement garage. Warm place to work..

I started to install mufflers, basic shorty caferacer look.
Also tweaked rearset plates to different position. Brackets are still not finished. Need to set everything up before sanding and painting.
Again, it would be better to anodize, but I need to learn that first.

Started to finalize rearset brackets.

Almost same colour. Not yet sure if they are close enough of not. I leave them dry for couple of days.

Also rear brakes was on my table. Very dirty condition. New seals and good cleaning.

Little disassembling and cleaning.
Also time to weld subframe cutouts.
When I was building subframe, I only weld it from some spots. I'm not good in these welding works, so I need to weld and grind many times. Let's see how it looks when done.

Subframe ready. Painting done. Colour is not exactly right . I hope that it's not too bad when all fairings is in place. Whole frame painting is in my to do list, maybe next winter.

Rearset brackets in place. Colour is fine. In my garage light anyway. Daylight may show the difference.

After little hesitation, I ordered factory pro shift kit.
Quite expensive product. Anyway I got it in place and seems that it's a quality product. Need to order oil seals as well.

Drive shaft and clutch shaft oil seals replaced. Shift shaft seal is harder to find, so I order original. Hope that I have it next week.
Meanwhile some polishing.

I started polishing engine covers. Not done yet, because I was watching some carbon wrapping from youtube,
and I decided that this is what I can do now, if I cant paint plastics and tank at this time.
I happen to be that guy who likes look of carbon fiber and I don't mind thuogh if it's a fake.
I need some cover's to pillion grip holes anyway, so I started from tail piece.
It didn't go well, and I'm going to do it again, maybe little different style.
That tail was my first curvy part what I ever done, so it was good training. Tank was much harder to wrap, and result is not perfect, (some bubbles and wrinkles), but it will do. It was even better training, I'm starting to be a professional wrapper...
