Thanks everyone for the comps. 

Hey Tin, as far as filter foam at first I used some industrial air filter pads, but it didn't last.  It tore a hole in it, since then I've been using a UNI filter around the outside of the stacks.

some pics I never posted of the new layout for the foot rests and controls.  Pushed them 5" back and 2" up.  It's a much more comfortable ride, for sure.  I also made a new side stand and removed the mechanics stand.

Not at all,  so far everyone whose rode it big and small haven't had any problems.  My knees do get a little toasty on hot days, but on cooler days or up in the mountains I don't notice.

I love the bike, do you have any pictures of the frame modification to fit the underside of the tank? I'm looking to change to a more narrow tank but know I'm going to run into the ribs on each side of the frame that extend out.  I had the same problem with my cb750, but modded the tank instead of the frame.

These are the only two pics I have showing what was removed.  Hope it helps.
