will it be "right-side-up"?   ;)

I like the option to go inverted, just in case there's a MiG around.

I am asking my machinist to knock together a simple clamp to mount it to the fork leg, and probably tuck it up high next to the tach.

I always wondered how those two planes didn't remove some rudders in that maneuver! Dumb s%*t movies.

In other news, progress-wise:

Headlamp mounted, and I wired a toggle in for the main power relay, and put a daylight-visible LED behind the little blue indicator light (originally planned to be exterior, but it was just too bright and would be way too bright for night use); the light will illuminate when main power is on.  Anti-theft will be taken care of via a switch arrangement elsewhere.  No key.  Electrical work is much more fun now that I have lots of spare crimp connectors, proper tools, and good adhesive heat shrink.

Header pipe is being problematic.  It would only pound in partway, building a ridge of aluminum from the head as it went in at two tight spots, yet was really loose except the those two tight spots. Thought the pipe was football shaped but it actually seems to be the head opening.  I have an expander and am gradually trying to bring the port and the pipe to the same size and shape using wet-dry paper and some dead reckoning.  The front bracket also seems too short, so I will probably cut off the front mounting hole tab, pop-rivet a longer piece of aluminum alongside the remains of the metal bracket, and bend/drill the aluminum to fit.  Then mounting the muffler tucked behind the rearsets becomes the next challenge.

Speedo will likely go in a bracket that mounts to the fork stanchion, placed next to the tach, but with the top bezel even-ish with the fork crown.

Got some aluminum stock to start making brackets and such, and some more basic supplies.

Think I have to re-make the throttle cable, as this one's got zero slack even with the adjusters totally backed out.

Electrics tray shaping up



From the tray, there will be a wire run on the left for bar switch and gauges, and oneon the right for ki, front brake, and headlamp power.  Everything else except the rear brake switch is inside the tray.

I like the electric tray.  I might have to steal that idea from you.

Only one detail is top secret.  :D
