    Simple question, why didn't you just add some weld to the frame side and file it back? Just curious as there may be something obvious I'm missing.

        "No other pegging, except foot, is allowed" - hey now c'mon, no kink-shaming here! We're all gentlemen, there's no reason to exclude someone just because he occasionally likes for his partner to take the reins, as it were... Do you what you like with a person what consents, gents! The world's too small and life's too short to feel bad about what makes you feel good.

          Shooting from the hip is usually the best and most accurate way of achieving the results you want.😁

            You, sir, are a comedic genius. I love your machining, how you story tell though (and I mean every aspect) is priceless.

                      Anther consequence of welding the 7075 Tony is the it will usually drop a few T levels

                          Owned the older scorpa with Yamaha 250 engine. Never let me down. And like you , never owned a new bike.

                                What formula do you use for heat in a project while cutting metal down to hold a close tolerance?

                                  I onced had a similar experience with a Renault Clio Sports car, I had just changed the pads but the owner complained that the brakes were spongy. Turns out that the pads I was given were the wrong type, so as soon as I changed the pads the problem was solved.

                                    Somewhere there is a crusty old machinist with an eye patch and 4 fingers watching your videos then talking shit about how you aren’t a real machinist since you still have all 10 digits.

                                          you can test 7075 series of aluminum with calcium chloride solution, if it turns black or dark grey it's 7075. And for your extra bonus points if it's Magnesium use white vinegar and will also turn grey black bubbling. yes you can tig weld magnesium with the right filler and lots of argon.

                                            "as you can see from the wear on the bolt hole, this'll probably get replaced sooner rather than later"

                                            Why not just make and press a delrin or brass bushing in? We do it all the time for old SU carburetors with steel throttle shafts. Years more service is left in those things

                                              I just have to say here that the production value of your videos is quite impressive. So what were you in your former life, machine operator of film producer? You are definitely quite adept at both.

                                                    why would we design an aesthetic hole in something that is expressly a "guard" against ingress?

Maybe harder to get access but it appears the frame is steel so...On the other hand, I paused the video to read the instruction placard on the ultrasonic footpeg cleaner... was NOT disappointed!

It doesn't kick off where the threads (or shoulder) contact the bore ID, and it just sets there, eating away at the part. Hope it helps, and Congrats on the new toy!!
