Got my bearings in and did a little work in between driving to San Diego for my son's soccer tournament this weekend. Hoping to have a rolling chassis this week.
Yep, I know the front shocks are upside down, but just wanted to check the steering scrub before I put the shocks on. EDIT: Well maybe they are not on upside down.... silly Suzuki back in the day I guess
Just read the whole thread too and this is one impressive project. You'll love the durability of that sidewinder sprocket. I wasn't sure on the black frame at first until the whole thing was into a roller stage and I gotta say it looks real sharp.
Well it took a few days, but I finally have the wiring all correct. Geezzz, what a pain in shortening all those wires. I have them all soldered, shrink wrapped, and techflex. I have over 30 feet of techflex on this bike now.
If anybody is thinking of doing this make sure you have a wiring diagram. Have to make sure that the Black with White tracer wire ties to the frame, key, kill switch, stator, and CDI. That was probably the trickiest wire to complete.
Also since I have all the parts for a Projection HID light, I wanted to see its light pattern.
Last shot is me pointing the light up to my ceiling. Wow, this is a wide pattern, but not much up or down. Hmm, maybe I'll add the projection light as a 2nd HID on the front of my bike. We'll see.
Well, I've decided that the Krylon Fusion is crappy. All three pieces scratch back to yellow too easily.... ggrrrr, now I have to figure out how to change the color of my plastic. If I could find a vat big enough, I would dye it. Have heard good things about the RIT dye and plastic.
Here I cut about 1/2" from both sides of the rear fender to remove that weird down turn in the seat line.
I need to cut the front of the rear fender to spread it out a little wider as the front plastic sticks out a bit at the top:
I also have propped up the rear of the front plastic to remove the 1/2" gap under the top of the seat. I'm going to weld some of my cut plastic pieces to get the alignment of the pieces under the seat. More tomorrow.
