Hello there GreenRE!
I'm not sure what you mean by a LED indicator. It has a single flasher, like the stock headlight. So the pickoff for the indicator will need to be between the flasher and the switch. Not a problem there. And yeah, I have been looking into HID kits. Do you have any experience with reliable vendors? There apparently is a wide variety of quality out there.

Br's Cochi and Big Cheese:
Ace has said (wisely) he can make no guarantee's about the bottom end. I get it. He is a performance guru, and wants to make sure I understand that if my stock crank was built at 4pm on a Friday afternoon, it might not hold up. It's fine, and if I torpedo it, well I have options. I'm also of the opinion if I keep the happy handle running under 4500 rpm I should be good, even with the addtional torque I'll be asking of it with the 535/higher compression/rephased cam thing. We'll see...I keep you all informed, and YMMV.

Hello all! I have been gone for a few weeks working. Still gonna be gone, but parts started coming it. The breather mod kit arrived....and was for the screw off oil cap. Not mine. Shit....on its way back now. Same with the replacement clutch cable...I got a pre-99 for some reason. So its gone back too. Told them to just hold until Radon comes in and send all the right stuff together.

My cylinder and piston are en route or already at Ace's. Looking forward to getting that and dropping it on as soon as he can do his magic to it. A question to those who have done 535 kits....did your carb need lots of adjusting? In my head, it seems a one size up jet in both position (stock mikcarb for now....will fiddle with my CV carb after I get the bike running reliably and smootly again and rebroken in). And run it a bit rich for runin. Am I having stinkin thinkin?

Oh! got the spin off oil filter kit from Chumma. It's a sexy piece. I'll post photo's once it's mounted.

And I think I will still have enough budget to do the rewire on the bike once all the other is done. I'm gonna use a fuzeblock on the rig. And the upgraded charging system from Sparx. The bike will be all DC when I'm done. Hence the reason the HID kit is still being considered (although not budgeted for at this point).

So yeah....there it sits for now.

Be safe all. Glad the weather is good everywhere now. Go RIDE!

I did what Ace told me to do on the carb settings.  Perfect setup the first shot, no issues at all.

You are correct! More pics!

I am back from the dead. Actually, from being out of town working for about a month. Fortunately for me, that means I don't really need to work again for another month and a half or so. And look what greeted me when I got home!




My breather kit modification! This will hopefully help relieve the inordinate amount of oil puking from the breather. Pretty trick, actually. Unscrew currently oil tank neck. Screw this in place. Screw old neck on top. Route breather into lower inlet, route upper inlet either to the chain, or in my case i will just continue to route to the back of the bike. Oil goes in and drops back into oil tank, airpressure continues onward out the duckbill with MUCH less oil in it. I purchased this on Br. Cochi's suggestion, and am hopeful.

Hey, look what Chumma sent me!



This is the screw on oil filter mount that he sells. It's a complete package, and since my rocker feed lines are already cut and plumbed into an external oil cooler (also from Chumma I might add....old part he had), I should just need to drill my engine mounting plate and drop this thing right in in it's place:



Hello clean oil. :)

So, apparently CMW is no longer able to source the Radon speedometer. Bummer. Not sure what to do for a speedo/tach/trip computer. The Acewell 2853 looks right, but is hard to source in the states. I was hoping to maintain a somewhat stock look and avoid doing things like a Trailtech computer or whatever. Still hunting for ideas there....

And am in a holding pattern while Ace gets enough orders together to do another run of barrels/piston stuff with Mondello. Very much looking forward to that little bit. :)

Hopefully these couple bits will be on this week. I may just forgo a speedo for now and do my exhaust coating and rear shocks instead. Also I need to get these old panniers off and in the mail to Ice along with the carby I promised him like 17 years ago. :)

Ok all. Be safe out there.

Glad to see your update! I was wondering how it was going. I'm happy with the stock speedo and a dry erase marker on the handlebar clamp as a trip meter myself.  Something like a trail-tech would give you a rev counter and engine temp though.

Br Jartist,

Yeah, but so does an Acewell 2853 or the like. I had emailed Baja Designs (current North American supplier) and they don't carry the round ones anymore. Just emailed an English supplier....we'll see what response I get.

Yeah, I mostly want the other stuff. Don't really care about speed. I want tach and engine temp. If I can't get it done with something that fits in stock casquette, I 'll save my bucks and go Trailtech and fork toppers that delete the casquette and some sort of Baja headlight....full on dual sport style. But thats a chunk of change for sure.

Milk, good to hear from you. The oil filter set up looks like it's nicely made. I hope that the crank vent kit works as well for you as it has for me. Thanks for the pics and the update. cochi

Br Big Cheese,

Thanks for the heads up. Email has been sent.

Just noticed....no temp on this particular gauge. Bummer....Radon speedo has temp sensing. Not a deal breaker though. Accurate (ish) speedo, tach, trip odo. And hey....a fuel gauge!!! Heh! Whatever. Anyways....

Just looking for that little free time to get out to the man cave and work a bit now. :)

1 Thump,

heya! I have an email into them as well. We'll see what response I get. Seems no one actually wants to sell me a speedo. :)

Alright guys. Just accumulated the fundage. I have $400 left at the moment. Plus a few more bucks if I would get off my ass and sell the panniers and carb. And this list of things I want to do:

Speedo - most around $200
Shocks - $300 ish
Rotor/stator upgrade - $300 ish
Header coating - $125
Rewiring the bike - $150 ish

I'm putting off the panniers for now. Considering the Givi's from Hitchcocks....or waiting until they will just sell me the frames and I can mount something of my own making.

What do you think I should do?

Currently leaning towards speedo and header coating, and saving the rest for shipping on the piston/barrel when its done. BUT.....anyone think I should blow all that off and get the shocks instead?

Thanks guys. Be safe. Might finally get some time tomorrow to put on the bits I showed earlier.

Just a quick one here....

Got the breather mod kit installed. All of 15 minutes....totally easy.

Before:


And after:


Reverse angle:


Simple as pie. The old neck unscrewed easily and with no scarring (well...that paint is tired....but I like the rat look). Am gonna go put a few miles on now and see how it goes.

Be safe all.

Quick addendum to this. Ran about 30 miles pushing 55-60...my typical speed. Brought it back and let it sit overnight in the garage without the drip tray under the breather (which is still routed out the back). Not a single drip from the duckbill....which would usually have left a decent puddle. Awesome.

I have a bicycle speed on mine. Cost me 5. Using one for now would allow you to buy something more essential.  ;)
