I completely agree with this idea but for the sake of getting this thing on the road im just going to run it as is for now. Im trying not to get caught up on the details on this one, so far i have not been doing a very good job.

once its on the road and vetted I will make changes where it seems fit.
That's a good plan, I tend to get overloaded with details and take 'forever' to get stuff done. Guess I really am OCD  ;D

Thats how my KZ1000 was and it took me 6 years to complete. My new axiom is "don't get it right, just get it running"

+10  ;D   I do have a 'solid' one I made and modified to run brake fluid through using 3 lines. Can't remember where it is off hand though (maybe on XS'800'?)
