    As of right now I have no intention of altering it from stock.

    I am curious what it will end up weighing, I really have no idea what it will be.

    Excellent, happy to see some updates on this beast! Pretty sure others have used hydraulic clutch with chainsikle rearsets but cant say for certain. Are you planning anything in terms of crash bars/engine protection?

    Going to ditch that crappy aluminum skid plate I was running and make a new steel one, along with some sort of crash bar in the future, no definite plans and it's not really a high priority.

    The Chainsikle shifter is very vulnerable to being bent in by a tip over. I'd like to figure out a folding tip or something to protect it

    Picked up a biltwell whiskey throttle, I got tired of the 1" throttle on the 7/8" bar being sloppy

    Tried out a few different ways to do the brake stay, this is the best thing I could come up with using a grinder, drill and file

    Somehow my speed holes ended up a little off but I wasn't about to make a new one over that

    Decided to run a little bit different motor setup than I had been planning on, before I was planning on 12.5:1 compression and Andrew's n6 cams, new plan is 10.5:1 and Andrews n4 cams for a little bit milder street motor that will run reliably on pump gas

    New NHRS pistons

    Made up a matching swing arm brace for the other side, just need to weld them on.

    A few more parts showed up in the mail, I sure do like billet but my bank account isn't a big fan of it.

    Turns out the EFI Buell heads I'm running need a special intake manifold to work with a carb, the mounting surfaces on a the EFI heads are milled down a 1/16 on each side, resulting in a poor intake seal if you try to use the stock carbed manifold

    Who’s sprocket cover is that?

    Speed merchant? TC BROS? it’s not tracker die, I have that one.

    I hope your chainsikle lowered rear sets are better than the garbage he sent me, which took a month to return.
