They all original so should be correct lenght. Think its incorrect shape of top fender bracket that makes the fender move too much backwards and thus decreasing the gap with the horn...

Its been a while but have managed to sort out my front mudguard / horn clearance issue. Top bracket's sides should be in line with the center when viewed from the side. As seen on photo down below mine was bent somehow, guessing collision with a tree or some other obstacle in the past. Although it looked symmetrical so at first I thought thats how it was supposed to be.
Straightened it up and gained more clearance between the horn and fender as the fender moved forward on top bracket. Maybe useful info for someone else.
Other than that there has been some progress on the bike... Few small things still to be sorted out but will get there soon. Bike hasnt been started yet but pretty much there to fill the oil and put petrol in and keep fingers crossed :)...
Unfortunately wont be able to make it to Denmark Rally in august as things have come up and i cant change my work schedule :((.

Would someone confirm what sort of wire was used on petrol tank bolts to secure them with each other. Copper, steel? Guessing they would be tied together 2 and 2?

Regards,
Andrus

I use simple gardenwire (steel)for the racingbikes to secure all kind of things ,it is galvenized so no rust and it is flexible so you can bend it easily and its cheap.. I secure the the tank bolts 2 by 2 2 front and 2 rear...... .Chris

Hi,
Its been a while but finally my NG is complete and running... Started from 2nd kick. Lovely sound with this exhaust and very nice to ride. Everything works fine after first 100 kilometers. Few drops of oil leaking from here and there but things just needed tightening up. Only problem i had was clutch as it was slipping quite a bit but used stronger springs from another bike and that cured the problem. Few pics below...
