I'd also like to hear more.

And as far as the swing-arm pivot adjustment goes, I thought I'd heard the Augusta Triumph guys were making a few of those. I'd imagine it wouldn't be a hard machining job.

4 & 6 Racing here in the Chicago area installed the offset steering head bearings for me.  Unfortunately, they recently went out of business.  I believe that they got the offset bearing inserts from an outside source, as opposed to machining them themselves, but I'm not certain.  I might be able to contact one of their previous employees and see if I can find out any more info on their source for the inserts.

I do know that Attack Performance makes adjustable offset triple clamps for the Daytona, which is another option.

Roy,
   FYI, Jimmy is making some BIG promises about your performance this year. Last I heard he had you taking the first Triumph to sub 10's at BHF. Somebody has to do it, may as well be you.

He said what??!!!  Sub 10s?!!  :lmao: I think he may be exaggerating my abilities just a bit!  I just hope not to embarrass myself out there in my first season with white plates!
