OK, a new year, some new challenges but a few carryover students. I am working on this project with them from time to time. I am getting ready to make a few purchases and getting ready to start some more simple fab stuff...
I have a few opinions etc to ask:
1. I have seen Ignition switch relocation on the downtube close to the front of the cyl. There isn't a lot of space to put that original in that location (THAT THING IS HUMONGOUS) but if I relocate it under the seat pan that is a bit of wire relocation etc. I would like to keep a keyed ignition in this, would you pick up a new ignition switch (DCC has them relatively cheap that are much smaller)
2. Exhaust is on the list and I have been looking at the DCC 17" shorty reverse cone mufflers
any experience with these? I read the reviews and they may be a bit on the loud side but the 26" reverse cone's maybe a bit too long looking! something in the middle like a 22-24" reverse cone may be good but there isn't anything cheap in that style and size. I may go with the megaphone style 24" I will have to do a little photoshop to see the likeness before throwing money at them.
3. as for headlights and gauges, DCC has a bunch to chose from... any of them I should look at or any I should stay away from?
Thanks guys, I'm looking forward to the suggestions and will use that as motivation!
