Forgot the 1/2" breaker bar so I couldn't get the triple tree nor rear axle out just yet.

They're about two weeks out and will be painted gloss black.
I've been after the '16 Speed Triple /Thruxton R tank decals for months now. Where did you get them from in the UK if you don't mind telling me

This is going to be a beautiful custom ST 675 RS for sure

Thank you! On a separate note, did you rebuild your calipers after having them powdercoated. I found new seal kits for the front calipers but I cannot seem to find anything available for the rear brembo caliper?

Since the bike is literally new, I pull the seals and pistons first, then have them powdered, then toss everything back in. Works just fine.

With this said, this time around the wheels and brakes will be painted for a better finish. Powder looks nice at ten feet, but the coating on these wheels was so awful for my powdercoater, it had issues that irked me.

Thanks. My bike had 1000 miles on it before I began tearing it down over the winter. I'm going with new seals on the fronts since they are available but for the rears it looks like I'll try to reuse the originals. Any recommendations on taking out the Pistons and seals? I have them calipers completely apart with the exception of the Pistons and seals.

Thanks

It's super easy. Just pull the seals with a small pick, then blast the pistons out with compressed air in the fluid inlet. have a piece of thin wood on hand so they both come out simultaneously.

Got that Autoglym / Samco hose cleaning stuff from the UK. It works amazing even on the OEM rubber hoses. Left is clean, right is how it came. The black/white shows it best.



Chopped down the bracket that holds the throttle cable and right mini fairing, so now it is just for the throttle cable. I'll probably sandblast it here in a second and then send it to be powdercoated.
