Default Re: Monarch springer fork and drum brake

LOL, almost 4 hrs later. I rode to DMV's MC test thing to get an exact footage of stopping before swapping it around. (from RT to LFT) Came home and took off wheel. Realized why I had to put it on the RT. Needs to be drilled and ground out to allow being on the LFT side. I marked it off then decided to check inside for any wear or maint. needs. The lever just arm only opens a "C" so put it back the way it was. Ubolt and all. (but in my defense, I did put some electrical tape on to protect the forks paint)

1st pic, just the hub, marked where to be altered.
2nd, brake not engaged.
3rd, brake on and held open with a twist-tie.

Now gonna go ride her.
