    Wasn't sure which direction the inline fuel filter was supposed to go, anyone? Did I get it right?

    I "t'd" the line into the cross tube between the front tanks. The kit from Pete was pretty good, came with all the pieces required :thumb

    Waiting on the mail man...front tire, fuzeblock, heated grips and some bling :evil

    Really hoping to have it finished next weekend and on the road. Life and delivery times are getting in my way, like always :freaky

    The filter is correctly installed. Normally there's an arrow printed on them somewhere showing the direction of fuel flow.

    If you can't find an arrow just remember: They're designed so you can see dirt in them... so the dirt should be on the outside of the filter element... so you have it the right way as fuel is going from rear to front and front out side of the filter to inside. :freaky

    I have 2 filters like this, and some spare... I remember the arrow is pretty big, too big to be seen sometime(because the filter is very small) :D

    The fender from a Super Enduro. I tried a couple of other ones (sm, etc) in the past. This one seems to offer th most protection.

    Sweet, someone out there who hasn't gotten off on my bike :rofl

    I think Pete plans on making something very similar to this

    [​IMG]

    A few centimeters higher off the front wheel though, correct if I'm wrong Pete. Mid-late summer if memory serves.

    Not much to tell about the bike today, just collecting parts for the final build this weekend.

    On the graphics, is that a template/die line you made yourself?

    I'd like to design my own down the road and a vector file of the die line would be grand. I'd be willing to pay a bit for it as well.

    Graphics are from Crispy. The vector is proprietary :nod

    He does custom and doesn't charge much. The vinyl he uses is nice and thick. Highly recommend using his services :thumb
