It smells terrible but I cut the foam for my seat with a soldering iron. I have a Weller D550PK 120v gun style soldering iron that came with a flat looped tip. I use it all the time for cutting rope and not having a frayed end so I figured it would work well on the seat foam, which it did.
I don't have a factory kill switch anymore so I ran the thin wire from the harness end and the thick wire into the coil.
Hopefully that gets me what I was after. Either way the bike starts much, much quicker and runs and sounds much smoother.
Color me impressed!
I highly recommend picking up...
A few weeks back I picked up the ignition coil/relay sub harness from sparckmoto.com. I had read on a few different DOHC specific sites that installing a relay and wiring directly to the coil can substantially improve spark, and create a smoother running engine, improve efficiency, etc.
Congrats brother - it turned out great! If I had one gripe about the project, it was the headlight you replaced. This headlight looks much nicer and fits the style of the bike considerably better.
The grips turned out nice too!
Looks like it was worth it. I really like it.
If you ever end up needing to widen another tank I've have good luck with using compressed air. You have brace the tank and block off the edges to give it a "limit" of how far it can expand but it works well.
Those steel dragon boxes look nice.
I have 75/110 jets in right now too. I dropped the clip on my needles one position last night but I haven't taken it out for a ride yet to see if that helped at all.

Thanks for the heads up. I just tried to rotate the filter lose while mounted - wasn't possible while the ends are clamped to the fuel line.
If something was to break the glass it would have to either:
A. Make its way between my tank and frame rails (where I mounted my filter). Whatever John...
Here's the guide I followed if you ever end up deciding to give it a try.
As an added bonus there's some sweet ass background tunes to jam to while you learn!
Thanks for the compliments gents! After a ride, I have a few things to adjust and install.
I forgot to put the breather filter back on the crank case - I'm sure there's some good DIY's on the internet for getting oil out of jeans...
Bar position is getting tucked back just a bit and I plan to...
