The battery location looks cool, and I'm confident given your attention to detail you're thinking about things like this, but consider how you're going to connect/disconnect the terminals.

Make sure you have clearance for the bolts and tool.

That and ventilation for cooling the electrical components.
"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."

Yes, it needs some thinking about to get it right. The cowl will be removable and so the battery will be able to be lifted out worse case scenario (fixed to pan rather than cowl), but it should be possible to leave it all on too

Got some new Keihin PE22 carbs delivered this week. The plan was to bore the originals but apparently there isnít enough metal there, I had been warned this was likely the case (Iím not doing the more complex engine mods myself) so need to find some adaptors for these. Anybody know of any that will fit?

Collected some parts from the specialist who has overbored the barrels +1mm, beautifully smooth honed finish.









The air intake ports have been machined out and resin deposited in there and reshaped for a smoother air flow.  He used resin in the end as adding metal wasnít sticking, clever stuff.



Boring stuff going on in the background includes taping up engine casings for painting, now that the temperature has gone up at bit. At least it did briefly.

 Nice work,
Did you match the port with the carb inlet size?

I have worked my 200 head quite a bit for smoother more continuous cross section flow, but havenít matched the carbs yet

So the upsized Keihins, along with the original manifolds, have now been machined to match the new gas flowed intake ports ...
