I stand corrected.  I went out to the garage to work on the bikes last night and realized I may have been *gulp* wrong.   :-\

I didn't have a chance to get back on here to double check.

I feel so bad.   :(

but not as bad as Jim who hasn't even TEST RIDDEN his bike yet.   ;)

Never admit to being wrong!!
The problem wuz, Jim described it wrong and Rev confused us...  :19:

I agree, Jim must feel terrible.
     I guess he feels so bad it made him use that awful word. {w__k}  arghhhhhhhhhhh !!

Ride safe, Ted

when you do the test ride, could you end up at my place and take a look at my electrical problem?   >:(

Ok got the ZX-6 front fender back from the paint shop and got it installed. A note to any future users of the 90-93 ZX-6 fender.
The bolt pattern is slightly shorter (center to center) than the stock Connie fender. But a little dremel tool work fixed that problem. Made a new fender extender out of a plastic car mud flap and got it installed. Had to re-shim the brake caliper mounting brackets but got that done and ready to install the plastic tomorrow. Due to the shorter front tire/wheel I had to put
the forks back down through the triple tree back to the stock position. But barring any more rain I should have it rolled out of the shop tomorrow.
