How are you holding the GL Dyna into head? Only one screw? I had to make a few mods to get it to fit with both screws holding things down.

Not sure how well the pics show it. I filed a shallow groove where the sensor and the baseplate meet. I machined a cap screw head down to fit and I ovaled the hole on a washer.

Finally covered the seat with a grip cover and padding. Still waiting on tank emblems to arrive in the mail. Then a couple little bits here and there. Trying to decide if I want to wrap the headers or paint them.

I think the headers would look good with black hi temp paint.

I agree.  Black or white, I'm thinking.

My vote is for black. White will go yellow and look funky.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.
Sr250, Gs750, Z50A, XV1100, A10, Z160A.

I machined a piece of alloy then used a long screw to clamp on the top of module.
Also slotted points cover to get better airflow but one module failed after less than 1000 miles so gave up and went back to points

I like the way you mounted yours better.  I might have to steal that.  Much cleaner and prettier than what I've done.

We'll see how long this one lasts.  Only reason I went through the trouble was because I already had it on the shelf from a trade several months before.  I've tried to keep this build under $500.  My GL won't see the road for at least another year, either. Up to this point, I've been running it with no cover.  I made a spacer to gap the cover so it clears.  Thought about just making it so the cover stands off.

I've got a 1/8" alloy spacer on mine. Wasn't too difficult to cut from a piece of plate I had kicking around

It's kinda like putting lipstick on a pig, but I got the exhaust all painted and cleaned up.
