Well I finally made it back to the dyna. I was close with the carb setup but the guy got it even more dialed in. Final settings are; 22.5 pilot, 132.5 main, needle clip second from bottom, mixture screws 3/4 turns out, and floats at 19mm. overall the throttle response is much crisper with the raised float heights and needle position. I only have 220 miles or so on it so he didn't want to take it over 8000 with the new cams in it. It got to 96.5 HP with another 3500k till redline. He thought it might make 100HP if he tested it higher so I'm calling that a win. I also had a chance to weigh it and its 480lbs with a 1/2 tank of fuel. Thats down 80 from stock!

the next debacle is the head-gasket is leaking oil....it never ends.

I haven't had a chance to really put it through the paces but first impressions are good. the torque really makes it fun.

Custom chromoly kick lever for extra clearance. I also machined some bits to accept a Tarozzi rubber to match the foot-pegs. Needs final polish before going to plating

thanks Pete.

Finally got out on this thing for a spirited ride. did about 100 miles of twisty roads. I am blown away by how good the brake setup is on this, very progressive with great "feel"

It's gorgeous.  Neat kickstand mod too.  I miss the ocean.  Can we get a listen to the pipe?
