Sir Yellow Pig. Where is that trail? Co. I presume. I'd like explicit details, as I get lost easy. That looks like pure riding heaven.

Talking FINALLY got the Beast Tagged.... Legalized!

OK here's "Ivan the Terrible" with brand new shiny Texas plate AND inspection sticker! Fully legal for these parts.






Not as nice as a lotta ones posted here... but it took a lot longer than I thought to get it to this point. Here's a list off the top of my head:
- SRC radiator cap
- SRC air filter support
- Twin Air Filter
- "Race Spec" jet job, wide open "insulator", big tailkit [pretty open back there], in short, UNcorked
- Dual-beam 35w headlight in original shroud ... neat trick eh? The honda shroud etc is SO much better than anything else I've seen in terms of stability, control.... NOT a lotta light, but way better than polisport et al
- Horn, Drag Specialties mechanical speedo... calibrated right
- Complete DC charging system & battery
- Brakelight rear actuated. I have not addressed front brake integration yet...
- Brand new MT21's, balanced well. Pretty smooth to way hi speed where the wind shear makes me unstable! bugs hurt
- unknown mirror... that's gotta go. I want those crooked-stem black round ones but haven't found....
- Grip Puppies!! best mod yet
- Better fork oil.... now i can't remember what weight we put in. something strange like 4.5 ??? way better than it was

Now for Phase 2.....

Zapp22,
I'm thinking same re Honda headlight shroud.

Thanks

Sicass racing. you use the stocker, remove the bulb and the rear cap/terminal piece and replace with dual-filament bulb and an adapted cap/terminal that accomodates Dual filament. The bulb shipped with my kit was 25w/25w but I think there is a 35/35 in that same form factor.

The 25 looks pretty good actually, better than I thought it was going to. And the honda shoud is done right... very stable, and the lens is aimable. So, as I said before, I'm stickin' with this rig until I move to a 200W stator and the dual "Retina Burners" like the Baja big boys use. The other intermediate steps to me are just more of the same .... a little strength in one respect, weakness in others. there's better things to spend money on re your DS conversion.

There are way smarter guys here than me on this stuff. look at the separate thread YellowPig posted on his wholesale makeover. very impressive.

Congrats on your behemoth!

Zapp,
Thanks for the the info. Was hoping for whole headlight lens and bulb replacement. The plastic lens robs a lot of lumens and prob won't take bigger bulb.

ok, it's not a great picture, but it's the beginning of my conversion project. The bike is already half-way there (4 gal Clarke tank, Edelbrock, Baja Designs DS kit, Ricky Stator kit, rear billet rack, and a few more items), yet there's always a lot more to spend money on. First I gotta get a Wisconsin title (it's got a street title from Minnesota right now). Today I spent about $300 on a Vapor speedo and some new rubber that's more dirt-oriented. More to come...

I started looking at 2-seat roadsters thinking I'd buy one in a few years. One drive in a Honda S2000 and several days later I owned it. Something had to go and I could never part with my Victory. Sorry. I didn't have to advertise it since I was getting regular inquiries about that. My adventure MC days may be over, but there's lots of good pavement out there for Vic riding.

BTW I'm glad you find the website useful!

Steve
