At last I´m done and the sun is shining !

Been doing some upgradings on the bike this winter (as usuall).

What has been done this time.....

-Reardamper been replaced with a Honda 600 RR reardamper fitted with a Öhlinsspring.
-Corrected spuishband to just under 1mm.
-Advaced ignition 4 degrees.
-Pods on ears.
-Rejetted with 220 mains and 25 pilot.
-Did a set of Ron Atchinson-needles and put them into the carbs.
-New mirrors mounted.
-Steeringdamper almost fitted....just the mount on frame to be done.

Been testing a bit and the bike preformce is just wonderfull.
No stubles at any rews, pulls hard from scratch and up to (and over) redline.

That is one very good looking bike, nicely updated but retaining the original looks. Got to be one of the best looking paint schemes of any bike out there, sometimes the standard paint schemes are just so right.
Looks like the rear ride height has been increased, how much and how have you done this.

Possibly this one.

I'm sure someone had an ajustable ride hight kit available. Can't remeber.

This must be one of the best looking "stock" bikes out there!

I agree. The cut down side panels look much better than stock.

I use the same method....did it with a little help from a local maschinist.
But it was hard to find how much the holes in the arms should be moved. I think I redid them 3 or maybe even 4 times.
The external tube on the damper caused same "small" problems to.
After I been testing the bike I feel like I would like to raise it a little bit more....most for the looks but even for little more quickhandling.

Ronnie: Look that adjustable ride hight kit up and send it over to me...Pronto :-)

I thought the bars are modified to move the shocker back by 8mm to give an increased ride height of about 37-40mm? I suppose the difficulty is working out how to modify them to get the 8mm. It can't be as easy as just cutting them by 8mm and welding them back together.
