So the whole front came back from the lathe man...

And this is my new lower triple, which can fit in the SP1's frame as well as mount the Ohlins in it. Comparison picture next the OEM one







The new pivot pressed in the triple



I've also asked him to copy my rear spacers from 7075 aluminum alloy



And here are the front spacers which fit the '04 CBR1000RR front wheel to the Ohlins forks so that the RC's OEM brake rotors are centered in the Brembos

Now an important step in the construction.....the lower triple's rotation stoppers.

Thankfully the 954's triple has a lot of thick material for stoppers so it's manageable to file down some of it and make it fit to the RC's frame.

First fitting the OEM triple to mark the rotation limits which basically are the radiator front hoses' mounts on both sides.







Then I fit the 954's and do the same







As it can be seen, the gap is by half an inch wider, so back to the working bench and my favorite steel vice.........

After a lot of filling and trying on and filling and trying on, the triple was done


















The thickness of the new stoppers are the same with the ones on the RC's OEM lower triple, so I guess they are up to their job if the are ever called in action (God forbid)
