    Thought a little update on my al--ewe-minium seat base project was in order. Started with an MDF form in the shape I wanted:

    Formed a couple pieces of .080" 3003, tig welded them together, and started metal finishing things up.

    Fits with the Suzuki SV650 taillight well, I think

    Have a bit more metal finishing to do before it's ready for paint or polishing (undecided on that). Unfortunately, summer came along and so did the yard projects, riding, camping, work, travel, etc... Probably won't get much more done on this one until winter returns!

    The pipes alone make it a worthwhile purchase.
    How far off-road do you get with the 250 Sherpa? I haven't been too brave with mine yet, mostly easy stuff.

    It sounds like the "falls flat" mystery was solved by measuring the timing (maybe). I have no idea how it ran if the timing was that far advanced. I would be interested in how you go about sorting your overall ignition timing, jetting and fuel selection.
