Sounds fantastic! What do you need to to do a test ride? [or have you?]

@ Ja-Moo and Stev-o: Thanks. A few things missing:

1. I need to be 100% sure that any air trapped in oil pipes is gone
2. Bottom Fork tubes are still leaking through the 2 small drain holes. I'm on the second set of new screws/gaskets. Might need to take the fork apart again :evil:
3. Wire to neutral indicator worked loose (an easy fix)

On the air in the lines, did you watch the video I put up? And are you revving the motor while holding the pump cam full open?

Well sort of Ja-Moo, but I'd better watch it again, carefully! I'm somewhat busy on the job these days, not sure I'll get back to you until weekend.

Update:

Ad. 1) Ran the engine, for a somewhat longer time, and also leaned the bike to the right. After that, all three pipes were completely filled up with oil - thanks Ja-Moo ;)
Ad. 2) Still leaking, worse than ever. Need to remove forks, so I can work properly :banghead But the first 2.5 years of work, passed almost without any fuss, so I guess everything will average out normally in the end.
Ad. 3) Fixed

Time for a photo session:

I have the reset knob for the tripmeter, but the shaft broke. Will fix it some time during winter. Wanna enjoy the bike now for the remains of the "summer" Currently the summer here i Denamrk is crappy !

The original Stanley Euro specs. Head Lamp 35w/35w (part.no. 23007-019) have survived and was in very good condition.

Original Stanley plastic lens, have survived too.
