It didn't fit. Well, the box fit, the carbs didn't.

That is how much of a genius I am. Got all the grommets and wiring and hoses in, but the carbs wouldn't settle on the boots. That is when I noticed why. Everything else fit fine until then.
What a maroon.

Made Decals

I was bored so I hand cut some decals to brighten up my new Weld86 skid plate and a plain looking Pelican case. I won't quit my day job, but they came out OK.

Installed the second fan from ADV machines, works great. Installed an HID hi/lo universal kit from HID country. No worries about forward vision or being seen now!!! The alley looks like daylight with Hi beam on and tons more light on lo beam. WR Dave

Can you still get to the front sparkplug with the extra fan installed? Not that I know how to get there without the extra fan :-) My hands are too big but I hear it's possible to get it out without taking half the bike apart.
