Ok... Here's a quickie update.
The bike runs amazing.
Jetting was tough due to the unusually small jet sizes required with this exact set up.
In fact I'm waiting for more jets to come in..
In the mean time I have prepped another carb just to be safe :lol:
I have a few loose ends to tie up but nothing major.
The graphics should be here later this week or early next.
I won't be able to post any pics until after the magazine comes out from here on out :cry:
I have 4 gallons of fuel ran through it so it could be ready in a few hours once I get the graphics here.
Right now we are waiting for Daryl (MXA Editor) to give us a exact time and date for the photo shoot and test ride.
It's getting very exciting...
If bikes are for kids I'll never grow up.

I'm relocating the vent for the electric starter from on the electric starter to the air box.
