Glad the yoke has arrived :D
This is a test of my measuring and not your machining skills John, I do hope it fits! If not I'll go stand in the corner!
Nothing wrong with your measuring sir, :D ....you can have yourself a Kit Kat, :lol: :lol: :lol:

Just about bob on, only thing I had to do was a little more machining to the groove where the O ring sits.

That is a relief John but really more a reflection on your excellent machining skills, cap looks ace on the yoke - I'll be back in touch when it arrives! :D

Arrived this morning and looking good!
Old and new caps - note that the original had been painted by a previous owner, no mistaking the new cap though!

Here is the old cap on the bike:

You're gonna have to paint that top yoke now...
Or remove all the paint and get polishing ;)

Yoke cap looks good Simon, :D

I've ordered some more alloy to make another couple. If anyone wants one give me a shout.

If anyone wishes to add some additional class to their GPZ then these alloy caps are the way to go, to order simply PM John :)
