Yeah, I've been working on tons of stuff:

The clips ons I got were only 9 inches long, wasn't enough room to run the stock controls, I thought about looking for after market levers, throttle, etc but figured it'd just be easier, and cheaper to add a couple inches to them -




Been sorting out all the electrics, the wiring on this bike is so simple. Only one fuse!
I've got everything fitting nicely under the seat hump.




I chopped the original muffler, it didn't go with the look. I definitely need to some noise reduction/back pressure.  Anyone know of internal baffles that I can slide in these pipes? 




    Other things I need to sort out:
    • Buy some lower profile headlight ears
    • Figure out where I'm mounting the rear blinkers
    • Find a tail light that'll work bolted to the bottom of the battery tray

Looking good. Nice clean wiring too, I'm sure you're smart enough to stash an extra fuse in there like me, but not as dumb as me to not have a screwdriver (or hell even a dime to pop the aircraft fasteners to take off of my tail to get to it). For a baffle look on ebay for something that will fit in there, I had to make one out of 2 of these - http://www.amazon.com/Walker-41886-Exhaust-Pipe-Reducer/dp/B0015KZNLU I was lucky enough to find ones with and OD that was the exact ID of my pipe. Then welded it together, drilled with holes and packed with material.

Hmm i took a measurement on the pipes, looks like 1-1/4 inch ID and 10-3/8 OD.  Maybe I'll order a couple of these and hear how they sound - http://www.ebay.com/itm/MINI-MUSCLE-MUFFLER-BAFFLE-4-LONG-1-1-4-DIA-USA-MADE-/270689121950#ht_840wt_1165

Thanks man, in reality my welds usually suck ass. Up until a few weeks ago the only thing I could get out my $100 harbor freight welder looked like a series of blobs and bubbles. I am starting to get some better welds now, even an actual bead sometimes. I guess it comes down to having the confidence to do something you don't know how to do.

Nice clip-on work.  The build is looking good so far.  Are those air filters the K&N ones, or generic, or something else.?

Hey how do those CL pipes fit on that SL frame. Im building a CB/SL mash up. I want to run the high pipes but was not sure if they would fit or not. Could you sho a picture of how they clear the frame in the front? Bike is looking good.
