    Not yet, I got an ignition switch from Fearless and charged the battery . I pulled the right side tank off looking for where to plug in the switch and turns out the wires were beside the instrument panel. Removing the tank was by far the most complicated one I've ever done . There are about 15 screws just to take off the filler caps . You also have to dismantle the windshield , fairing and just a bunch of stuff.
    The good news is switch works , the battery is still good , I could hear the fuel pump working , but damn all that stuff has to go back together to try to start it.
    I also got distracted by another deal and drove to Atlanta and bought home a KLR with an endure sidecar on it . So between playing with that Christmas etc. and not having room in the shop to swing a cat , I've got lots to do.

    Sounds like you have plenty of projects!! Hopefully it goes back together easy!

    Don't forget to stuff some rags in the gas filler holes so the screws don't end up down in the tank ;) Wish I could say the tank removal and install gets easier over time...haha...it kinda does but it's still laborious. I miss my Cagiva (a little)

    Real question is how much bloat is there on that tank. If it hasn’t expanded much over time (ethanol), then its my opinion that you get used to getting the tank on and off fairly efficiently. But most of them i’ve Dealt with or heard of have stretched, and that makes it a real pain.

    Looks like I have a bit of an oil leak. I'll be investigating this.

    Don't know where you're is, but I've had to replaced the oil pressure switch on mine twice....

    Question: Does anyone have any experience with fuel tank vents being clogged? My hose is clear but it seems the fitting is plugged. OR is it some kind of one way check valve?

    I've read on various internet forums to run a stiff wire up it, and / or a small drill bit. But before I go gonzo on it, thought I'd ask. Seems if it's check valve fitting running a drill bit up it wouldn't be the correct procedure.

    Here's a pic:
