    Things are coming along slowly, mostly working on other projects.

    Carb still needs to be tuned, too lean.

    It gets bad head shake at 60+ mph, front doesn't have enough weight on it and the front springs are really really soft.

    Even when it's running way lean and it's 90+ out cooling is actually working well as long as your moving more than 30mph. Don't really have to worry about it running to slow, there's no traffic or traffic lights where I live anyway.

    Need to gear it down, with a 14 cs sprocket it's topping out at around 45+ mph in 1st, so it's lugging up to 20mph in 1st.

    Still need the finish the seat and swap over to a 450x electrical so I can run lights.

    I'll post up a video of it running one of these days when I get everything working right. :freaky
