Run an external oil tank and use the oil-in-frame as your fuel.  Might be limited range though :)

If you have a chance I'd be keen to know the jetting/needles/slide etc. setup of your VM36.  I need to jet mine.  Have some baselines from the 'web but always good to hear from a real running bike.

Is that a Supertrapp or just a short megaphone?  I have a Supertrapp on mine welded to the OEM header.  Can't wait to hear it.
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."

It's a supertrap clamped to the factory header. Sounds pretty damn good for a thumper.

The jetting I haven't really even looked at much, all I know is the main is a 230 next time I take it apart ill look around and find the other specs for you.

Haha thanks Bert, but I think im going to mount up a rd400 tank if I can get my hands on one. Or anything relatively narrow and square? I hate the stock teardrop tank.
Anyone?

Well, I was going to stay drag it over in your truck and let's test fit a 4.75 gallon Mustang I've got in the forge, but... Bring it and the stock tank over and we can try to play "mix and match" from the ones I have on hand. The flat track type tank on my bagged bar hopper is, at 2 gallons or so, too small for my bike (98 Suzuki 650 single). Or there is the CL72 tank, but it has a dual outlet petcock... Have access to a few more, lots of dead bikes in my area.

$133 huh, I'll give you $134 as is...

Schlitz is a bit high class for me, make it a 45 of steel reserve and you're on

Ordered some Shinko 705s from power sport superstore.
They are in tx, I got a shipping confirmation last night about 10 pm, I checked the status and it said "hasn't been dropped at ups facility yet"

So I checked it this morning
"On truck for delivery"

They overnighted my tires for 8.99 and they had the best price on the Interweb.

This build is going do well I'm getting worried something is going to go catastrophically wrong
