Look at that ... and more specifically ... look what's missing! No charging system?

That's cool! Just running on a battery? .. Or was it converted to magnito and kick start only?

I figured it for a total loss electrical, too The magneto, if there was one would probably have to go on the end of the crank, and there is nothing but a crank nose, there. Must be a battery only thing. Think I see one right behind the left side fuel filter.

Andrew must be here somewhere, but this is the bike he just built:

I can run all weekend on a 3A battery and your engine spins up better without all that junk hanging off the crank. I run a Shorai and a starter cuz my pit crew is usually too drunk to push start me.

Okay, that oil filter's a new one on me. Looks like a clever location.

Did you adapt it yourself or is there a "kit available out there"?

Weiner!
Engine is raised so access to the stock oil filter is a PITA. Very nice set up. Except the Wix oil filter is not imported by Wix USA and Wix was less than helpful finding a cross reference. I'm taking it to Scott's to find a replacement. I don't really want to order filters from Germany.
