Ordered some VM34s today. Now I need to source some 1.5 needle/seats to handle the bowl pressure, if anybody knows of a good place to order

Here's some shameless picture whoring of my roommates Deathwing hiding in the background. Think DTTers would appreciate

Well actually got seat mounts. Havent actually welded them on yet.
Decided to go with VM34s. Better performance and less clutter keeping dual carbs on the head I think.
Need to find pressure rated needle and seats at some point still
Got the TC bros exhaust kit. Comes with some nice right radius pieces. Now I'm going to cut it all up and see if I can make it work.
Found a cheap sporty tank. I think Final mounting will bring the front down about another 1.5" its currently sitting on the old mounts.
Smaller tank leaves much more room to tuck turbo close to bike

Progress will probably be pretty slow for a while
I stumbled upon a Toyota pickup that had a rod knock, snatched it for $200. Spent $50 and rolled a set of bearings in it, gave it a tune up, runs like a champ.


I used to do this with them, a long time ago, and have been wanting to build another one.

Nice truck. I always loved those old Toyotas. I'd love to import an old diesel Hilux one day...

I like the tank high, gives it an aggressive look... but maybe lower would look better. ???

I think I like the thank location. I know the seat springs are "backwards" in the photo, but they seem to perform much better this way....

Excessive alcohol consumption leads to stupid shit like this
