That is sexy!

Can't wait to see it together.
It looks great with the black and white.
And as was said, the pipes are a thing of beauty.

Thank you for that bit of wisdom.

Totally obvious once I saw the set-up, but would never have thought of it.
Now my radius pieces won't look quite so homemade.

Can't wait to see the finished product. Looks great so far.

FOG is the man with these bikes.

Definitely check out that site. He was very helpful to me when replacing an engine from a different model year with a different ignition set-up.

That's pretty much how I do it. Freaks me out being that wide, but it's worth it.

Hah! I know her, she's a very funny woman.

That pretty much sums up my reaction to more snow. That's what I get for putting the winter thumper (aka snow blower) away.

What, you can't read my mind?

Sorry, I didn't re-read that before i posted.
I bought 2 KLX300 cables, Kawi pn 54011-0009.
I guess the older version, with more travel, needs an even longer cable than the newer one.
