It's close.  Got the tappets adjusted and the carb installed last night.  I plan to get to the oil filter next, change the oil, then get the Supertrapp hooked up to the end of the header.   Should be good to go after that.  I also need to figure out why there is no clutch.  I hope it's just an issue with the lever mechanism.

Since Augusta, GA is the land of "not in stock," I'm waiting on shipment of throttles cables, an oil filter, and a chain.  Most Autozones carry a Fram oil filter that fit these, but not here.  For the most part, it's all put together. Side covers are still off to be able to get to the carb. 

Exhaust is complete, with the Supertrapp welded on...



... with dual sport tires back and front...

Looks like we're in for a change of pace.  I'm struggling to find compression.  It's in the valve train, as one of the intake valves just won't seal up.  Multiple laps, to no avail.  So, I ordered new valves and we'll send the head out to get recut.  And while we're at it, I ordered a 441cc big bore kit.  As soon as the piston and valves comes in, I'll send the jug out to Mototech and the head to DWMS... 

... pause for station identification...

I have to call Chris and see if he does sleeves.  441 kit needs a re-sleeve. I'll hone this stock jug, run a Wiseco stock sized piston, then buy another jug for the big bore.

He does (or at least did). Last time I was over there he was putting in a sleeve that he had made from scratch as it was no longer available.
