I just added a new bullet style headlight bucket (trying to work out how to keep it off the brake line). I pulled the H4 bulb out of the light it came with and replaced it with a Native H4 from ADV Monster. I took these shots on Tuesday night before we left for my in-law's house for Thanksgiving. I noticed the light was bouncing around one my ride home - found out that the left mounting bolt worked its way out at some point on the ride. I am an idiot for not double checking how tight it was before I left.

I found a couple of stock air boxes on eBay, which had the original filters.

  • Broke down the filters (cut out the paper & used heat gun to soften the old glue for removal)
  • Ran the filters through electrolysis (along with a bunch of other parts over about a week) - the filters are just resting on the mesh in the photo below -
     I had already broken them down
  • I had to run my trickle charger through an old battery to push any current
  • The rust isn't 100% gone in the photos below, but I threw them back in to finish them off
  • Glued the original mesh back in and replaced with UNI foam

Here is how she stood at the beginning of the Summer (2017). I had pods on it at the time because I couldn't afford new stock filters.

  • I chopped down the front fender & added fork gaiters.
  • I also added inline fuel filters (DCC) and added clear fuel lines to keep an eye on what was coming through the tank.
  • I used Metal Rescue Rust Remover to clean out the tank - worked great, but my tank only had minor surface rust.
  • I applied Dry Coat Rust Preventative inside the tank and rinsed out a few times with gas.

I have ridden road bikes (cycles) for years - so I really wanted to keep a tucked riding position - plus it is easier on my back. I ended up getting a new MC after  fighting with the original. The bars were also an addition. I put new pads up front, along with new brake lines, & put new shoes on the rear.


The MC is still at a pretty steep angle, but it has been stopping on a dime for the past 400 miles.

The stock headers had been cut (by PO) to put on some old Yamaha mufflers. They were full of rust. I bought a few up-swept adapters from DCC and kept a few inches of pipe from the old mufflers to cobble together an exhaust. I wrapped the headers to try and disguise my Frankenstein-approach.

I also got a new harness from Sparck Moto - never been so excited to get a box of wires in my life.

Got a new battery from Sparck Moto - the thought was to get one small enough to mount just about anywhere in any orientation. I still wasn't 100% sure on the direction I wanted to head with the bike (still not).

Replaced screws on the engine with allen bolts. Nearly every screw on the bike turned to putty after trying to unscrew it all, so I got my money's worth from my screw extractor kit.
