I prefer the cheapy for my vintage bikes. MOSFET for modern.

Got the sparckmoto.com R/R on FRIDAY!  Thanks Matt.

I had to swap the red and black wires inside the connector.  Other than that perfect fit.   8)



Tamed the high voltage issues.

The (other goodies). I guess it pays to be a loyal sparckmoto customer these past years.  This is my 3rd machine using Matts stuff.






Comparing LEDs to old dash bulb.



Ererything working great.



The LED turns and tail light = AWESOME!  Atleast 50% brighter than bulbs.



New insulators are no longer "unobtainable"   :). On EBAY

M/C arrived so Back on track w the caliper.  Hose may arrive tomorrow.





Stripping paint from body sucks.  And half assed the polish job.  My brother recommended speed bleeder so giving that a try.
New everything for the rest of it.

I found I had ordered the wrong Master cylinder (16mm) so had to get a 14mm.   :P

fired her up for a test ride and she was running really rough.  But, managed a test run to check brakes.  Good.

I pulled the carbs then discovered I had left the vacuum gauge screw plugs out.  Ha.  Easy fix.   ::)

She is now 100% road ready, safe and (fingers crossed) reliable.

Just gonna ride the shit out of her for the rest of the summer.

Making plans to take her down to frame this winter for clean, paint and polish.
