Cleaning Stuff Continues

Trying to make the most of what I have has produced 40 clean and inspected nipples and spokes.  When I took apart the Honda wheel and hub it’s possibly the first time any of the components has been touched since they were all assembled at the factory.  There is still clean up to do on the hub and brake plate, to include some modifications.  And that means a bit more judicious drilling of things in the Overland weight reduction program.

There is still work to be done on the brake plate and the Birmabright surround for the fresh air inlet.  I’m still a bit undecided if cutting a second vent is worth while or not.  Of course the black marker is where the second vent would be.  It seems that I might be spending more time on these hubs than it took Honda to design, manufacture and assemble the hubs and rims at the factory.
