Not a bad starting point, and that price is a steal!
Cant wait to see how this turns out

Check this beast out.


I am getting incredibly excited about this bike.
I cannot wait to go into a field and slide sideways at 50mph
(and subsequently bust my ass, break something, tear up the newly finished bike, come to DTT and complain about it and bum replacement parts  ;D)

Decided I'm going to be doing a lot of blasting on this one, so went ahead and did what I should have done along time ago:




Waiting for the silicone to dry inside, then I will do the window tomorrow night and fire her up and see how it goes!
Wheels will be the first to be blasted. I can't wait.

Tote her over for Mopars and Motorcycles, creek beds, woodlots with primitive access, small hill climbs, heck if you get mad we can launch her into the pond... I could use an artificial reef or two.

Nice work!  That gas tank is custom.  I am thinking about using the same tires on my XT500. I am also running a VM36 and I love it, here are my current settings but I just bought a 6DH3 Needle and a P8 Needle Jet and will be trying those soon.

Pilot: 30
Needle Jet: Q5
Needle: 6FJ6 (clip raised two notches)
Slide: 2.5
Main: 220

I am running an open megaphone exhaust.  I am excited to see where you go with this bike!

Thanks Dan!

I think whoever jetted this one did a great job just by feel, no flat spots and it pulls all the way to redline (or what i can tell is redline from the broken off needle in my tach) (thats how you know a bike hasn't been run in a while, when the first time you start it the vibration breaks the tach needle off)

When I get it up and running around I'll start on some plug chops and see how it really does.

might want to check out suzuki dr400/500 tanks? blasting cabinet looks like you stole mine. Its identical. great minds think alike :) Remember to make a pluggable hole in the bottom for the grid to remove when it lost the edge. And a light. most def a light. I have a 200w beam on top, with hole in the top. works A+ next to my 18bar constant compressor ^^
