no velocity stacks yet, just open throat on the carbs right now. (still need to buy air cleaners.)
the exhaust tip is just temporary. (i just wanna see what it sounds like when i fire it up for the first time since the build)

looking amazing man, it's sweet to see another builder on the western slope.

Maybe try lollipop baffles in the exhaust for back pressure, and pod filters. That setup ended up being jetted really close with my project at this altitude.

You have skills.

Where did you purchase those tail-lights? I'm looking for something similar with the red dual-filament bulbs.
