I shot a few vids... this one has it running and riding half way through with the two under-pipes. Im editing together the next in the series with the high pipe. Should be out in the next week or so.

I jumped over the last hurdle today.

I had been fighting a "cruising" hesitation/gurgle around 3-4k rpm.

The hesitation was caused by using these needles from a rebuild kit  turns out they were 2mm longer than stock. Put the stock ones in and its 99% better. I think i still may need to down-jet from the 72 mains to 68s. We'll see.

Agreed. I watched parts 1-5 a couple days back. Nice work. Waiting patiently (kinda) for next episode...

Headlight has become a problem. Cheap $20 ebay nonsense. The bulb got so hot it warped the plastic lens...  then the vibrations killed both hi and lo beams... bought an LED bulb... and broke the housing to the headlamp trying to install...

Such crap. On the search for a better housing with a glass lens.
