XL fender is more fitting to the style that MX is too flimsy also so paint will hold up longer on the more rigid plastic. I wouldn't be afraid to put a decent depth of foam for the seat insert, your gonna want the comfort.

Thanks, Tune.  The plan for the seat is something like the early KX/XR/CR seats.  If they'd fit this frame better, I'd just fit one of those.  So, should be plenty of pad. May see if I can find a cheap pad and use it for the foam. 


I think I agree about the fender too.  I love the shape of the early XL fenders, front and back.

Got it all wired up and lit it on fire.  Amazingly, this GL Dyna works like a charm.  Needs some adjustment in the carbs and the seal behind the advancer leaks like a sieve.  Fortunately, I bought all the seals, so it just a matter of swap . I hope I can do it without loosening any bolts.

Well, it ran on one cylinder because the Dyna rotor needed two opposing magnets instead of just the one it had.  I should've known, but it took me flipping the rotor to realize what was going in.  For some reason having two sensors at 90° is all I though it needed, but it's also 2:1 which requires the extra magnet.  So, I drill a hole opposite the other magnet and epoxied a tiny fridge magnet in.  Now, it actually runs like a 378cc bike should run.  A little rough at the low end, so I'll double check the advance and move on to the carb tuning.

even with the low end running rough, is it still a noticeable difference from a stock 360 vs a 378?

For sure.  PJ's carb mod does wonders for the stock motor, though.  This also has an XL250 44 tooth rear sprocket, as opposed to the stock 34 tooth CB's came with.
