Custom Vintage Style Bobber Project

PostAuthor: hidalgo.ceo » Mon Mar 20, 2017 4:49 pm

Getting Ready to remove the ais system ... want to know if those 90's unthread from the head? If so, are those normally willing to come out or should I find some sort or cap as many others have. I want to run the KjS. Single carb manifold and make the engine smoother, and simpler.

Also if I remove the fuel pump and convert to single tank petcock setup besides the jet in the carb and fuel plumbing is there anything else I have to worry about.

Also I want to put another rear wheel on the front the 15 inch 5 spoke. After looking at it with reasonable machining it seams do able to keep the dual front breaks. I spoke with cafe 750 and he said possibly if some things like fork distace and available space were the same his kit may be adaptable. Has anyone swapped the 15 inch rear wheel on the front. If so is there a kit availale like the first gen kit?

Getting ready for a custom exhaust depending on price will dictate how extreme I go. Could I use standartd car exhaust pipe to the head. Like would a muffler guy with creativity be able to use standard exhaust pipe to get new curves from the front of the motor or should I connect to stock pipers under battery box to the rear. WOuld he be able to adapt or create a flange that will work. going for a upswept exhaust in the rear but want to move exhaust from under bike to the side. of motor for clearance.

The AIS pipes won't come out of the heads. I cut mine off flush with the fins and TIG welded a plug in them.

I don't know all about the 110 fuel system, but think you will lose the lower tank, and I'm guessing you already have, with no pump.
