Mounted the footboards using new zinc plated hardware. I've decided to use zinc plated steel in the application, rather than stainless steel, for the greater elasticity of the metal under stress. I'm not sure it is needed, but thought it would be a good idea.
Cleaned the powder coat off of the brake pedal pivot, shift pedal pivot, and parking brake pivot. I used the same technique I described earlier: I used a strip of cloth-backed sandpaper. In order to protect the surrounding paint, I first applied blue painters tape to the immediately surrounding areas. Then, I took a flat piece of plastic (from some packaging) and cut a hole in the middle of it with a hole punch. The hole just fit around the stud and the plastic protected the surrounding paint. It is important to use painters tape behind the plastic as the plastic will move a bit and rub marks will be seen in the paint if you don't. This method worked very well.
Fit the brake pedal using the original oversized washer (still in good shape), but with new stainless steel lock washer and bolt.
Fit the shift pedal using the original oversized washer (still in good shape), but with new stainless steel lock washer and bolt.
Cleaned and fit the rod that joins the shift pedal to the shift mechanism.
Fit the parking brake pivot.
Thoroughly cleaned and lubricated the parking brake cable. Fit in place.
Disassembled, thoroughly cleaned, and reassembled the parking brake. Fit to the parking brake cable.
Fit the side stand switch bracket to the frame rail.
Disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and lubricated, then reassembled the side stand switch. I was amazed at the construction of this switch. The inner micro switch was in perfect functioning condition. The push actuation rod was very gummed up with old grease and wouldn't move freely at all. A bit of cleaning and lubricating and it was good to go. No, I don't necessarily plan to hook-up the cut-out feature of this switch, but I do want to have it mounted for the sake of originality.
Thoroughly cleaned and lubricated the clutch cable. Fit it in place at the transmission end.
Fit the speedometer cable in place at the transmission end.
Fit the spring to the side stand.
Cleaned the aluminum spacers that go between the frame and the rear fender.
