I have been away from this thread for far too long!
loving the progress and hope to one day get to ride with you!

Looking to order the engine mount bolts, and I think you said the other day you just went to the local hardware and picked up the right size... and did you shim that with washers? or was that another mounting point?

Thanks for the help, and hope this riding season is your best yet!! @MGFChapin

I found the engine mount bolts at the hardware store. They were the exact size I needed so I didn't use washers, but I did reuse the old nuts for the front mounts by the radiator. The manual says you're supposed to use new ones every time but, eh...

I had to shim out the left side fairing bracket to clear the R/R, see post #31. The 2 bolts on the stator cover have shims, as well as the 5mm allen fairing bolt (you can see the black shim on it).

A couple other things I forgot to mention about the Catalysts - it's a tight fit around the radiator and the part where the cap screws onto was getting a little scratched up. I wrapped it in vinyl tape to protect it. It's also a tight fit around the coolant reservoir. I got a Motion Pro reservoir to put up on the fairing stay instead.

It's winter and I'm back to scheming again for the upcoming race season. Thanks to @Shamrock for the push. Gonna try to install these in the next week or two, adjust valve clearances back to spec then hit the dyno. I'll be sure to post the results.
