Nice job so far! I would like to know the info on the battery your using. I see it came from Battery Plus. Do they have a web site or can you furnish a phone # for them. I would like to purchase one like yours. Also if you need a throttle cable, check with www.speedmotoco.com. They have a custom made cable available for the mikuni carbs that uses the stock throttle handle bar assembly.

Thanks all,


Sorry its been so long, my wife and I are in the begin stages of building our house. I got the design down, but we are meeting with the architect and builders,etc.


I have taken a short little rides around the neighborhood, and gotten her up to 60mph no problem. But I have to order a few rear spokes and get my new tires and tubes put on before I do any real riding.


I redid the seat and a couple other minor things. I try and get some pics up soon.

sounds like your mikuni's are working for you with the 145 mains? i'm jealous that you're actually at the point of it being rideable! nice work!

Hey. Nice build. What size pilots are you running, and what needle setting are you on? My VM's I am running a 130 mains, with 22.5 pilots, and needle in the middle position.  It feels great from 5.5upward, but slightly hesitant under 5.5K.

Nice job, where did you buy your carbs? I didnt read the whole thread in case you already answered that. Thats a cool color combo and your skateboard seat idea is probably gonna get used alot.

nobrakes,
I will have to double check my carb settings. I haven't had much time to really focus on tuning them yet. Right now I am just running 145 mains, and left all the others as they came. Once I start really tuning I will let you know what I do.


fartyhead, I got my carbs from phatperformanceparts.com. Thanks for the compliment. Also, have at it with the skateboard idea. I got mine from Walmart for $9 and added a couple $$ worth of camping pad, and a few $$ worth of vinyl. It turned out better than I thought. I will post pics soon.


dano,
good choice on the mikunis. What little adjustment I have done to them has been super easy. Make sure you throw some good inline fuel filters (paper, not metal mesh).

Here is a couple pictures.


Not a lot has changed except that I redid the seat with much firmer foam (camping pad), put on the shorty mufflers( I really like how they turned out) and got the title ad registration all taken care of. I am getting my new tires and tubes put on on Friday morning, then I should be getting really close.
