Thanks for the details man. I was sure I double checked before placing my order but was rushing and using my cell phone to order so I can see some room for me to make that mistake.
 Iím leaning towards  buying the correct ones now but I heeded your advice and messaged Murray to get a definite answer. Float valves, needles and other parts arenít here yet so Iíve got a little time to determine if I need to put in another jets order.

I messaged Murray(cxman)

ďthe only time it affects anything is

if you have a brass diffuser that the smaller head jet wont hold in place

or the overall height is shorter it does have to make it to the fuel in the bowlĒ

This was good news to me! Should be a-ok on that mistake. Partzilla order should arrive tomorrow.  Iíll be able to finally button up the carbs by the end of the week.

We recently bought a house and finally moved in last Saturday. Iíve been off work (and will be until the 18th when I start with CFD). Being off has been nice but have been quite busy getting things all moved and set up at our new place. My fiancť is currently 33weeks pregnant and is busy making a baby so she is delegating work for me (mounting new lighting/ceiling fans, painting, setting up furniture for the babies room, and carrying boxes up/down stairs). Iím loving the new place so far. Downgrade on the garage size but we have a security system here, an automatic garage door, and itís insulated. Just last night I began moving the majority of my stuff over and getting it set up.


And the Mac 4-1 that Chuck gifted me with for this build.(not sure if I mentioned this in previous posts)

The clock is ticking buddy, get that thing together before AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days weekend, you've got just over 1 month!!!!

Then you can ride it a bit and decide wether you'll stick to the original plan of flipping the 100hp scary fast ~535lb behemoth, or see how well you like the monstrous arm-ripping beast (with the revised geometry, it shouldn't feel terribly heavy when riding) & make that meticulously restored beauty a keeper or gift for your dad!

C'mon, we've got riding to do, it's been a 1.5 years since we've had a good srreet ride together (ninja/cb750 days and lastly when the 450 regulator failed 75 miles from home after ripping those twisty routes 668 and 669!)
PE175 dirt ride soon????

Best wishes bud, and don't forget Andy has that stock MAC baffle in his garage from when I gifted him my V&H 4-1 to put on his GS750 instead of the MAC... I'd get that baffle and go crazy with a 1/4" drill bit in your drill press that I have here for your pickup when you drop off that spare 1100 D-Port top end!  Perforate that chambered baffle with at least 35 - 60 holes or more (to your liking) to give it some better growl!

Keep it up man, one of these days you'll have that GS550 (& maybe CB550?) ripping, too! And also remember I have 3 spare GS550 engines if that top end is no good. The 550 cylinders and pistons I have here (already pulled) are great, the head needs a valve job tho (typical, due to neglected valve adjustments)...
I think the 673cc top end will be the better bet however if you ride that arm ripping 1100, the 450 and 550 may seem turtle slow afterwards! The 673 top end with raised intake runner/closed chamber head&piston design will pack a LOT more punch than just the 125cc displacement increase would have you thinking...
And... I may get off of one of my 2 spare sets of Wiseco custom made K740 pistons for ya, also! 740cc 10.25:1 closed chamber head GS550... This will be the ultimate all around vintage bike in my opinion... KZ750E with GPz/Wiseco top end would be the other choice (Grant's bike, & Regan's minus the top end mods), and the GS engine will be WAAAYYY tougher, no plain bearing bottom or weak connecting rods to worry about!
Ramble ramble... what more would you expect out of me?!?!

VMD is not looking likely. I think the academy will be stealing my soul very soon. Then, that baby boy!


.....or gift for your dad!


That would be sick. Even though it seems like a Japanese v-twin is more his style (and more comfortable due to back problems). If he at least takes it for a spin thatíll make me happy.

C'mon, we've got riding to do, it's been a 1.5 years since we've had a good street ride together.
The 450 is up and running, has insurance and tags too. It needs a valve adjustment but it can handle some rides for sure!


PE175 dirt ride soon????

Iím up for Sunday.

Best wishes bud, and don't forget Andy has that stock MAC baffle in his garage ....Perforated that chambered baffle with at least 35 - 60 holes or more (to your liking) to give it some better growl!

Sounds like fun actually. And good practice with the drill press too.
