    Don't see any lie in that weld pic above. Excellent work!

    Did you happen to take measurements and angles for that header pipe you have made?

    Are you going to use a very short balance pipe between the headers?

    Does anyone know if the pipes on the new model Wee are the same as the old model. :ear

    Hey RTWADVGuy. Where'd all of the pictures go? I followed your lead on the trackside hand guards (since I couldn't confirm anything else affordable fit). I'd like to see how you fit the angle on yours. Any help here?

    Bigger question; where did RTWADVGuy go? Can't pm him. I tried that first. He has dropped from the inmates list. Was he a ghost?

    And there you have it. No worries. I got the TS hand guards figured out. Adjust the angle of the clutch and brake levers, and mount on the outside of the vibration dampener and they fit pretty easily. Pictures if anyone cares.

    and, you could figure out how to run coolant lines and the needed fittings to get water to the "2012 oil cooler", which actually allows the oil filter to be attached to it and does not "fit onto the base"-it is the base, and has no commonality with previous models
    take a close look at one
    not the best idea at all
