I just got the new regulator and checked it out. I had spark on one cylinder but not the other. I am fine with that for now so I proceeded to take out the wiring and man that was so stiff. The wires were hard like an armadillo. I guess that will get chunked in the trash.

I scored this tank for a very good deal, I bought it sight unseen from Alpha heaven and it worked out well, this thing is clean!

besides some scratches on the stickers it's nice

my wife is going to like the next step.... going to hobby lobby to get some foam blocks :)

That's perfect man. I've been digging your rd from hell, the fab work is coming out smoking.

Posting so I can keep track ;)

Clem, hit me up if you need anything.
Just a heads up... don't slide the 400 tank all the way forward when you fab up the rear mount. The petcock will hit the cylinder head if you do.

If you have spark on one side, try swapping the coil wires and see if the spark swaps sides as well. That'll tell ya if it's a coil problem or a points/condenser problem.

It is the same when you are Stupid.

Take Brad up on those EX500 forks. They should be a bearing swap away from being awesome.

About how far back did you set yours? The tank doesn't have a petcock on it right now.
I already yanked the wires out. If money allows I may go with an electronic ignition.

I will gladly take your advice.

Flip your orange tank and the 400 tank unside down and line up the front mounts match the orange tank or cut the fins on the head

I worked on the bike a little more today. Started the seat mold and took some more rusty stuff off. I found this little dude.
