You should correct the link since it starts at the 78 second mark. And I like your bike a lot better than your riding attire :r:

I think I posted more build progress on Facebook than here on the forum. I just made a gallery with some of the build pics. I need to add some more.

Looked through the build pics and what did you paint the motor with ? Also modify factory harness or go totally custom on the wiring ?

Engine was painted with your standard Duplicolor rattle can paint. No issues with it so far but I've used it before with good results. Harness is all factory with a few mods. Everything works as it should including the side stand switch, clutch switch, etc. I like having everything that way just like a stocker.
