Unfortunately, 8v is probably dead for LI-ION. They don't usually charge back up from being that low.

360 stator should fit, but I think the timing marks might be different?

Got the superbike bars mounted upsidedown. Looks pretty good. The wife isn't so keen. She says it looks like a crotch rocket now. Thanks to hillsy's tip, I notched the controls to avoid drilling. Need to notch the right side a little more though.

I need to get better pictures tomorrow.

I like the barsdid you have to replace cables etc with it being lower?

Thanks. I should shorten the cables, but rerouted them for now.

Pulled the battery and replaced it with a large cap in hopes that I could still get it to run, but no love. Only with the battery...

Try using an AGM battery, it's heavier but can also be place on its side too

Yah, leaning that way. Just ordered a li ion charger thinking I'd keep the WPS, but returning to Amazon and will also return the charger and get an AGM battery.

Ok, did some research tonight. Learned that these bikes won't start if the battery goes flat or is not installed due to the ignition type. Battery required to create spark.  Might just pick up a cheap lead acid battery for now to try to figure out if my charging system is working. My aftermarket regulator rectifier may not be working also.

Started mocking up the seat. Didn't get pics as the dogs were being a-holes so I had to go in for the night.

The seat will only be about 6" wide and about 22" deep total. Seating area will end at about 16". That seems to be where I'm comfortable.
