    stem bearing install upper and lower.

    a threaded rod
    beveled brass cup upper and lower
    steel backing
    two bolts to lock the lower
    simply tighten the upper bolt and pushes everything in to place without risking damaging with a hammer, and both seated flat with no dramas too.

    new radiator and oil cooler guards

    and the reason I replaced the radiator, old one was smashed around a fair bit.
    some corners suspension would bottom out and fender extender impact the radiator
    I couldn't see why but the angle is better with the GSXR forks and no risk of hitting new radiator.

    the only issue with the build is the steer damper stops the steering from hitting the steering stops both sides.
    Doesn't limit too much, just noticable when manoeuvering in a carpark.
    would mean in a crash it will be the damper that takes the hit.
    Currently looking at possibly putting a dogbone on one of the damper mounts, or simply finding one with more travel
