    Finally got around to machining the hub to my specs today at work.

    I'll post the first mockup pics this week I hope. Last item to machine is the right rear spacer after I figure out what it needs.

    Decided to use an 84 VF750F for figuring out the spacers so I wasn't hacking around on the 1000F. The rear turned out pretty easy. I already machined the correct left spacer to mate with the hub and I was able to use a combination of OEM spacers on the right and it's perfect. My measurements and machining were spot on.

    The front was a little trickier due to change in bearing and axle sizes for the wheel. Finally got it centered and I know what spacers I need to modify. Just have to shorten 2 stock spacers. Right side dust seal is gonna fit by .5mm.

    Decided to fit up the rear on the 1000F now the monkeying around was done.
