that was another option a direct frame mounted seat but all the old timers around the house kept saying that i should make it as comfy as possible if the option is there.
i thought about cutting the pan about 3-4in back and making it hinge there? would that also be an option? i love the spring seat look and feel like mounting it to the frame directly is the easy way out.
and i definently am not looking to pay $130 for a seat that isn't a design of my own when i have all the tools and people available to help me easily make my own. i dont even have to get the metal or cut it.
my dads buddy is doing me a favor and cutting out a few of the basic rectangle shape of my seat so i can play with a few designs (bending the fins, cutting and welding the fins at desired angle, and then no fins.
and a cousin upholsters boat seats for bass pro so i got a favor coming in from him as well
what problems will i have going from airbox to pods with the carbs. im trying to stay away from carb work as much as possible. and how much will welding new straight pipes to the headers change the way the engine runs? wont some recalibrating in the air/fuel ratio area will this cause or will i be ok.
i am an electronics guy not an engine guy so im trying to make this a nice baby step into my life with motorcycles lol
