Yeah that makes sense, I made a restrictor plate so that both sides are the same ID as the smaller can. I realize this doesn't make sense from a performance stand point but, I would rather have a properly tuned bike than an extra 1/3 HP.

I ended up buying two lefts and swaping the ends on one so that the mounts where a mirror image. (does that make sense)

Here are some pictures and a video of my dilemma of a very tight air filter fitment. The last picture is of my kick starter. It was hitting my exhaust so I welded a nub on the shaft to hold it out and drilled a new pocket for the detente ball to sit in, so it will lock into place. There is a video at the bottom of my post

gas cap

Another problem I am having is that I have two xt350 fuel tanks with the gas caps locked. Any idea of how I can get them off. I have several Yamaha keys but none of them work. Does anyone know of an aftermarket cap that will work. Oem caps cost more than what I payed for the bike. Thanks

Well I got some wiring sorted out and finished my lighting in the rear. I am still working on the air cleaner setup. I also got tired of trying to pick the lock on my gas cap....so I drilled the lock mutilating everything in and around the keyhole. I got the cap off though. I decided to make my own "custom" cap so I fired up the lathe. I like seeing chips it means I am actually getting something done. The cap is still in the rough. I have some more work to do to it, but you get the idea.

Nice!

That looks great, you really set the bar high for the rest of the bike!

I think you can use a couple of these!

I decided to bite the bullet and cut the exhaust. I'm really glad I did because it was so much easier than all the screwing around I had been doing before. I just made a cut, rotated the bend a few degrees and re-welded it an pow! now everything fits. This project should really take off now. My front tire came in the mail today. Its a metzler karoo. I picked it up off of ebay for $15.38 with 100 miles on it. It still has tits on it! It is a $115 tire. I was stoked. I also took a picture of the bike with the paint stripped off the tank to try and change the minds of all the XT tank haters out there. haha ;D

Yeah I will most likely be fabbing some sort of heat/mud shield as well as wrapping the exhaust.

Well I got some goodies in the mail today. Its starting to look a little more like a bike now. I know it looks funny with the red but you get the idea. I also got my battery mounted and started working on side covers. My rear tire is in the mail as well.
