Nanno: Iíll keep that in mind. I want to see what I can do on my own first though.

Got the Biltwell whiskey throttle installed and hooked up to the two Mikuni tm85 flatslides that replace the old Hitachi CVs.

I like the look of the original handlebar controls so Iíll reuse that for the throttle side, but want to find something resembling it but without a choke lever for the left side, rd350 or XS650 perhaps.

Any identical looking switchcluster will work, if you transfer the innards into the other switchcluster. (It's what I did on my XS750 in order to hook up a cable-operated choke for my flatslides...)

Cool project!  What is the whiskey throttle you mention?  Quick action?  Like what you've done with the tank and the front end!

Thanks.

It's this one: https://www.biltwellinc.com/p395/buy/parts-amp-accessories/throttles/7-8-inch/-cast-whiskey-throttle-7-8-quot-single-black/

It's not quick action, but pretty nice built quality and has a nice snap to it with the flatslides:

Got my hub back from central-wheel.co.uk, now laced to a black 5Ē rim with polished spokes and the hub powder coated satin black. Iím waiting for a bearing kit to arrive in the mail, but threw it on the bike to see how itíll look and if the clearance with the 170/55 tire was ok. Plenty of space in the swing arm but have yet to see if Iíll need to offset the chain.

You will love those carbs. I can't believe the difference they made to my xv1100
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.

Sounds great. I can wait to actually start it eventually:)
