Turn the 45mm to a fit, maybe 44.7mm or so and push it on.

In the very high resolution picture, it looks like you used some kind of glue ?

After your experimenting it was easy to find a length that's as good as it gets and I glued it on.

The (hopefully) final version with Tomaselli clip-ons and modified rear (shorter aluminum mudguard and relocated indicators)







Of course nothing was simple in the installation and it took way more time than I expected  ;D

Quiet pretty bike, do you notice any benefits in the fork adjusters? Did you change something on the standard settings?

Thank you  ;)

Quiet pretty bike, do you notice any benefits in the fork adjusters? Did you change something on the standard settings?

I installed the adjusters with the minimum preload setting at first. I don't remember what was the length in the fork tube compared to stock fork cap + spacer, sorry.

Maybe it had less preload as the front was a bit low and there was some wobble at high speed + fork bottoming sometimes on bumpy roads.
After turning the adjuster for 2 rings then 1 ring more it was fine. (1 ring = 3.5 mm).
