Once the electric was sorted out, it was just a matter of replacing the steering stem/lower fork brace and the locking gas cap to match the new ignition.
JB Weld is no one's friend - this is the brace I have to replace.. Kids, do not repair structural stuff like this.
This is the method I use for greasing in pressed in bearings - way easier than trying to use traditional packing methods. Grease injecting directly into the races, can't beat it
It's so ugly, it's beautiful. Look mom, no JB Weld.
Brandon also wants an oil change and the rear brake pads changed, but all in all, the work is done. I'll be happy to see Brandon ride off on his beast again, it hasn't run since Hurricane Sandy...
