Gauge is a unit from Speedhut. I've used them for all the gauges in my 280Z and a gauge here and there for some other projects. The speedo signal is GPS and I had to order a new cable end so I can shorten the antenna cable. Unfortunately not going to finish wiring this weekend, As mentioned I still need to heat shrink all the ferules, shorten the GPS antenna, and my headlight bucket still looks like it's throwing up wires.

Didn't have a lot of time to work on the bike this weekend, but managed to:
Tidy up wiring in headlight bucket and install headlight. It's a 6.5" unit equipped with an LED H4 bulb.
Remount front wheel.
Fill and bleed front brakes.

Not much progress this weekend and one decent set back.

No bike is complete without a steering damper, so got that installed.

Got left foot controls situated.

The set back was when I discovered the positive terminal on my battery was loose. Thought I had been too cautious when tightening and it had loosened, but nooooo the terminal itself is loose on the battery. I'm sure Antigravity Batteries will not believe I did not damage it by over tightening, but I swear there is no chance that I over tightened it. Emailed them to see if I could make a warranty claim, but not holding my breath.

Datnut and Jake. I’ve reached out to Paul from C5 and speaking to someone else who has spoken to him recently, he’s in the process of designing his own ignition modules for his ignitions, with hopes to have a reliable and ultimately more superior product, but also one with more versatility. but no ETA on said product. I was hoping to buy a couple too. Seeing as my bike 920R isn’t even close to being ready I might as well wait and hope by the time a start electrics they will be

So Anti gravity told me to ship my battery back for inspection, but with stay at home order, I don't really have a good place to go to ship it (pretty sure I cant ship via postal office due to lithium battery).

I was able to get a few more things done. installed new cables, but misplaced my throttle locking tab from under the hand control. Fortunately they are still available for pretty cheap from Yamaha.
I filled and bled the rear brake.
I cut slots in the end of my muffler so it could compress under a clamp. Made a muffler mounting bracket and installed the stainless cone muffler.
Think I'm satisfied with the kickstand arrangement I came up with as well.

Nice. The Cone Engineering muffler flows well, the sound is full, and it heat ages well.

For jetting on the Hitachis, I went up one size on the main, one shim on the needle, and 2.5 turns on the pilot. It's very close to perfect. The plugs are good dark brown color.

Thanks for the jetting tips.

While waiting for some small parts to come in, I decided to build a small tank lift bracket. Pretty happy with result. With no lift, the tank sloping down to meet the saddle and then the saddle having a slight upward rake at the rear gave the visual impression of a broken back. Since I don't know when I'll be able to get the tank painted, I decided to put it on and share some pics of what the final bike will look like. I really like the style and the paint of the original 82 bike, so all I plan to do is repaint the tank to its original color. I do have a front fender, mirrors and a couple small thing to install, but overall this is what I envision for the final product.
