I found a good aftermarket top triple clamp on e-bay which made it easier to mount my bars to. As much as I liked the look of the clip-ons I will take the MX style bars and comfort any day. I used some adjustable universal bar clamps and some pro taper bars that I had. I also mounted a Koso RX-2N GP multifunction meter to the top clamp.

Finally got around to the exhaust system. I am using several stock YFZ450 and CRF450 stainless pipes as donors for my bends. I decided to run the rear pipe down through the swingarm, under the linkage, back up around the swingarm through the frame, into a Y and into the muffler. Easy enough right???? Well tacked it up and have 2 slip joints so it can al fit together. Just need to make the front pipe so it is equal length to the rear.

Finished mocking up the exhaust, all tacked up. Front and rear are equal length should flow nicely. I added a couple of heat guards made from Yamaha YZ-F's. Just need to Tig everything up.

Had this steering dampener in my collection of used parts so I made some brackets and mounted it up. I decided to go with a Motogadget M-unit blue, really makes for a clean install. Started to wire it all up. Much easier than dealing with a 40yr old wiring harness.

When you wire up the speedo sensor, be sure to run a wire back to the M-unit blue, not just to the speedo. The M-unit needs that input to give you a whole lot of supplemental information, including change alerts.

I still have to tear the bike down one more time, but I will defiantly do that when I do my final wiring.

I am using 2 FCR 40mm carburetors so I had to make my own manifolds. I turned down some aluminum tubing and had two flanges made. Clearance was tight but I made it all work. I was going to try and use a single throttle cable to Carb #1 and use the push side of that carb to pull Carb #2.
